Abstract

Turkey and Bangladesh are two Muslim countries who have shared a long history of friendship. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the contribution of two famous Bangladeshi poets Ismail Hossain Siraj and Kazi Nazrul Islam during the Turkish War of Independence. By content analysis of works of Siraji and Nazrul and evaluating rare documents from Turkish archives, we have highlighted in this study the contributions of these two poets of Bangladesh during the Turkish War of Independence. The study found that Ismail Hossain Siraj played an important role as the only member of the medical delegation of Indian Muslims sent to the Balkan Wars. He sent news from the battlefield to the newspapers of Bangladesh. Later, during the Turkish War of Independence, Siraji played a crucial role in the Khilafat Committee of Bengal. Kazi Nazrul, his first newspaper in the Nabajog, regularly covered the battlefields of Turkey. Nazrul wrote Ranveri poem in support of the Turkish War of Independence. Similarly, Kamal Pasha poem was written by Nazrul on the conquest of Turkey. Recognizing the contribution of two Bangladeshi poets in the Turkish War of Independence, the study seeks to foster strengthen the historical foundation of Turkish-Bangladesh relations.
