Bangladesh, 10 Taka, issued in 2000. Front: Sheikh Mujibur Rahman (1921-1975), first Bangladeshi prime minister, regarded by some as the father of Bangladesh. His portrait appeared on early Bangladeshi notes. He was assassinated, along with most of his family, in 1975. The government subsequently changed and his portrait was removed from the notes. His daughter, Sheikh Hasina Wajed, was abroad at the time and she survived and became Bangladeshi prime minister in 1996. She reinstated her father's portrait on the notes.
