4.2 Historical events

The area comprising the districts of Munshiganj stretching on the west of the
Meghna and Dhaleshwari had been included in the kingdom ofVIKRAMAPURA in the
ancient period. During the Sena rule Vikramapura in East Bengal had been the
second capital of the Senas in addition to their capital at Nadia. After the fall of
Nadia in the hands of BAKHTIYAR KHALJI (1204) the Sena KingLAKSHMANASENA fled to
Vikramapura and began to rule East Bengal. After the death of Lakshmanasena
(1206) his descendants Visvarupasena and Kesavasena ruled in Vikramapura till at
least 1223 AD. Some historians postulate that the sons of Lakshamanasena ruled
in Vikramapura up to 1243-45 AD. Raja Dasarathadeva Danujmadhava (Danuj Rai),
the Deva king of Chandradvipa, ousted the Senas from Vikramapura in the third
quarter of the thirteenth century and ruled the south-eastern Bengal till the end

During the Mughal rule the present Munshiganj town including the outlying areas
was known as Idrakpur which was named after the then Mughal faujdar Idrak. A
village on the outskirts of Munshiganj town is still known as Idrakpur. During the
British rule Idrakpur was renamed as Munshiganj after the name of Munshi
Enayet Ali, the localZAMINDAR and the inhabitant of the village Kazi Kasba in
Rampal.

During the WAR OF LIBERATION of 1971 the Pak army raided Munshiganj and Kewar
on 9 and 14 May respectively and killed some youths there. They launched an
attack on the innocent villagers at Gazaria upazila on 5 May and killed about four
hundred villagers by gun-shot. The people of Narayanganj in alliance with youths
of Munshiganj resisted an attack of the Pak army on Narayanganj on 31 March.
Hundreds of youths were recruited as freedom fighters and were given military
training at Dhalgaon area in the month of July and they took part in various
operations against the Pak army. The freedom fighters raided Sreenagar police
station on August 11, Lauhajang police station within a few days and the Tongibari
police station at the end of September, procured huge arms and ammunitions
and Lohajang police station was set on fire. The freedom fighters attacked the
motor-launches of the Pak-army on 24 September at Galimpur and Goalimandra
and killed more than one hundred Pak soldiers. On the night of Shab-e-Qadr the
freedom fighters numbering only 115 launched a combined attack on the Pak
army stationed at Munshiganj and captured the town.

4.5 History

Bikrampur (Munshiganj) was the political and cultural centre of ancient Bengal. It
was officially known as Bikrampur until 1986 and was part of Dhaka District. The
remains of the city of Bikrampur, the capital of the ancient kingdoms of
southeastern Bengal, are lost and its location can only be guessed on the basis of
available data. It was the capital city of the Candra, Varman and Sena dynasties,
from the beginning of the 10th century AD to the beginning of the 13th century
AD.

The name of Bikramapur survived in the name of a pargana in the Mughal period.
Today the name does not exist even officially; but the inhabitants of a vast tract
of land in the Munshigonj district still feel pride in saying that they belong to
Bikramapur, which, of course, emanates from the past glory of the area. Also,
within the confines of Munshigonj, the colonial era mansion of Badrul Islam, the
renowned Kombal merchant, is located. Today it is a sacred site
for Tibetan Buddhists.

Vikrampur (Munshigonj) the political and cultural centre of ancient Bengal
survives only in the name of an area in the Munshigonj district of Bangladesh. The
remains of the city of Vikramapur, the capital of the ancient kingdoms of
                    MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

southeastern Bengal, are lost and its location can only be guessed on the basis of
available data. Bangla, Old History

The name of Vikramapur survived in the name of a pargana in the Mughal period.
It appears in Todarmal's settlement in the 16th century yielding revenue of Rs
83,376. By 1728 the revenue had increased to Rs 1,03,001, and to decrease again
in 1763 to Rs 24,568, partly due to creation of two new parganas, Rajnagar and
Baikunthapur, out of it and partly due to the destructive activity of the Padma.
Today the name does not exist even officially; but the inhabitants of a vast tract
of land in the Munshigonj district still feel pride in saying that they belong to
Vikramapur, which, of course, emanates from the past glory of the area.

In the ancient period Vikramapur was undoubtedly the most important political
centre in the vanga janapada. Indeed, it was the capital city of the Chandra,
Varman, Sena, rulers, from the beginning of the 10th century AD to the beginning
of the 13th century AD. Vikramapur appears for the first time in the copperplates
of Shrichandra as sa Khalu Shrivikramapura Samavasita Shrimajjayaskandhavarat
(from the royal camp of victory or capital situated at Vikramapur) and it held that
position through the rule of the subsequent Varman and Sena dynasties.

Even during the rule of the Senas, who held sway over practically the whole of
Bengal, Vikramapur continued to be their capital, and laksmanasena came to this
place after his defeat at Nadia at the hands of the Muslim invader bakhtiyar khalji,
where his two sons, Vishvarupasena and Keshavasena ruled for a short period.
Though the copperplates of Vishvarupasena and Keshavasena do not mention
Vikramapur as the capital, but the land granted by them lay in Vikramapur bhage,
                    MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

indicating their hold over the area. Vikramapur's eminence continued till the early
1280s, when Danujamadhava Dasharathadeva or danuj rai of Ziauddin Barani
transferred his capital to nearby Suvarnagrama (sonargaon). From then onwards,
throughout the Sultanate period, it remained in oblivion, only to make a
comeback as the name of a pargana in the Mughal revenue roll. The heroic
resistance to Mughal aggression put up by chand rai and kedar rai, the zamindars
of Vikramapur (two of the illustrious bara-bhuiyans of Bengal) added short-lived
glory to Vikramapur.

Today Vikramapur is an extensive region of the Munshigonj district, and at some
point of time it extended over some parts of Faridpur across the Padma.
However, it must be said that it is difficult to ascertain the exact boundary of the
territorial unit of that name. On the basis of the geophysical characteristics of the
area an attempt can be made without any claim for exactitude. In the Thakbast
Surveys map (1845-1877) there is no mention of the Kirtinasha (the Padma just
before meeting the Meghna). Vikramapur comprised the area with the Padma on
the west, the Dhaleswari on the north and east, and the confluence of the Arial
river and theMeghna on the south. A local poet Lala Ramgati in his
Mayatimirachandrika mentions that Brahmin Pundits abound in the beautiful
rajya named Vikramapur, which lies between the Brahmaputra mahatirtha on the
east and the Padmavati on the west.

The small river Kaliganga (shown in James Rennel's map of 1781) flowed through
the middle of the tract, and on its either bank grew the prosperous villages
of Idrakpur (Munshigonj), Firingibazar, Abdullapur, Mirganj, Serajdi, Sekernagar,
Hasara, Sholaghar, Baraikhali, Thaodiya, Baligaon, Rajabadi etc on the north and
                    MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

Mulfatganj, Karatikal, Japsa, Kandapada, Shyamsundar, Khilgaon, Sarenga,
Chikandi, Ganganagar, Radhanagar, Rajnagar, Ghagariya, Larikul etc on the south.
The Padma, however, played havoc in the area in the 17th century and by
devouring the glorious deeds of Chand Ray and Kedar Ray earned the epithet of
Kirtinasha, the destroyer of relics. The Kaliganga cut through the middle of the
tract dividing it into two parts: Uttara Vikramapur and Daksina Vikramapur. About
200 years ago Vikramapur was about 30 to 40 miles from east to west and about
8 to 10 miles from north to south.

The site of the city of Virampur has been identified with the Rampal area not far
from the modern town of Munshigonj. It has been estimated on the basis of the
archaeological exploration of the area that the ancient capital covered about 15
square miles, on which are situated some 17 or 18 villages. To the north is
the Ichhamati river, and there still stand the remains of a very high parapet
running east to west, parallel with the ancient course of the river. To the east is
the ancient stream of the Brahmaputra. There are two wide moats, one on the
west and one on the south, which in present times are known respectively as
the Mirkadimcanal and the Makuhati canal. The royal palace, known as the
Vallalbadi, on high ground within the mud-fort citadel, with a 200 feet wide ditch
around it, is now in ruins.

A large number of tanks, mostly dating from pre-Muslim period, can be seen
around Rampal, but hardly any building of that period except the derelict ruins of
temples; NK Bhattashali identified in 1929 the remains of as many as 30. Dhipur
and Sonarang are the two important temple sites mentioned by him. RD Banerji
also noticed structures in nearby Raghurampur. Vajrayogini, a nearby village, was
                    MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

the birthplace of famous Buddhist scholar atish Dipankar Srijnan. The whole area
yielded highly valuable antiquities: sculptures of exquisite quality (both Hindu and
Buddhist), objects of precious metals. A silver Visnu image from this area
(Churain) is now preserved in the Indian Museum. An eleventh century divine
nymph (surasundari) hewn out of a long wooden pillar and forming a part of a
column (now preserved in the Bangladesh National Museum) is considered to be
a unique find in the whole subcontinent. Two other wooden pillars with sculptural
decorations were found from the famous Rampal Dighi (2200 ft x 840 ft). Though
the present landscape around Rampal would not give any indication of the
existence of a metropolis in the distant past, the find of the antiquities and the
legends around speak of the past glory of the ancient city. The river system
around might have also contributed to the extinction of the once prosperous city.
However, the medieval ruins of a mosque and tomb of baba adam shahid at
Rampal now stand as the only visible historical monuments in the area.

                                 5.4 Rivers across Vikrampur
 Padma River the downstream of the ganges, more precisely, the combined flow of the Ganges
 and the jamuna after their confluence at goalandaghat. In Bangladesh the Ganges is popularly
known as the Padma from its point of entrance at Manakosa and Durlabhpur unions of shibganj
upazila, nawabganj district. This name (Padma or Podda) is sometimes applied to the Ganges as
 far up as the point at which the Bhagirathi leaves its rightbank, and according to the Hindus, it
  takes the sanctity of the Ganges with it. It is hydrographically more correct to use the name
   Ganges to refer to the river up to its confluence with the Jamuna (brahmaputra), and the
downstream after the confluence as the Padma. The Padma is also sometimes wrongly referred
 to as the Ganges. The river between Aricha and Sureshwar (Chandpur) is therefore best called
                                              Padma.

The Padma is 120 kilometres long and from 4 to 8 km wide. The very important Goalandaghat-
Chandpur steamer route is mostly on this river. Near Tepakhola, 14 km from Goalandaghat, the
small Faridpur Khal distributary takes off from the rightbank. Fifty kilometres further down the
arial khan takes off from the rightbank. Fourteen kilometres further downstream the Lohajang
river falls into it at lohajang upazila on the leftbank, and the Kristanagar river branches off from
the opposite side. A few kilometres from Lohajang, the Shosha Khal and the Naria Khal take off
from the rightbank, join up and as one stream falls into the Arial Khan south of madaripur. The
Padma joins the Meghna 5 km from Sureshwar in a maze of shifting shoals and chars. The
Lower Meghna is actually a continuation of the joint flow of the Padma and the Meghna.

The Ganges-Padma is the major hydrodynamic system that formed one of the world's largest
delta complex covering a major portion of the country and also a greater part of West Bengal in
India. For a long period of development of the Ganges Delta, the river shifted southeast and has
reached its present position in the Bengal Basin. The hydrology and drainage systems of the
Ganges Delta in the southwestern part of Bangladesh are intimately related to the mighty
Ganges and the fluvio-hydrological setting of the Bengal Basin. The deltaic estuaries of the
Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna system drain the combined discharges of these river systems,
amounting on an average of 35,000 cumec. However, during the monsoon the discharge of the
                       MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

Padma rises to the order of 750,000 cumec with a corresponding increase in its sediment load.
The low-level discharge of the river during the dry season is of the order of 15,000 cumec, and
naturally very little sediment is borne by the river during this period. In the deltaic portion the
river width ranges from 1.6 to 8.0 km and sometimes it shows a braided character although it is
a meandering river.


Meghna River one of the major rivers in Bangladesh, specially famous for its great estuary that
discharges the flows of the Ganges-Padma, the Brahmaputra-Jamuna and the Meghna itself.
The downstream of surma river from Ajmiriganj is often referred to as the Meghna. The matter
would be simpler but for the fact that from Madna downstream for about 26 km (in a straight
line) one of the two channels of the Surma-Meghna is known as the dhaleshwari. The channel
from Ajmiriganj down to the confluence with the Dhanu is referred to as the Surma. This
confluence is five kilometres east of Kuliarchar and north of Bhairab Bazar. Downstream from
this point, the river is referred to as the Meghna.


The Meghna has two distinct parts. The Upper Meghna from Kuliarchar to Shatnol is a
comparatively small river. The Lower Meghna below Shatnol is one of the largest rivers in the
world because of its wide estuary mouth. The Lower Meghna is at times treated as a separate
river.


The Meghna receives the old brahmaputra on its right at Bhairab Bazar. A little above the
confluence, the Meghna has a railway bridge-'Bhairab Bridge'-and a road bridge-'Bangladesh-
UK-Friendship Bridge' over it. The width of the river there is three-quarters of a kilometre.
Several small channels branching off from the Meghna and meandering through the lowland
bordering the Tippera Surface receive the flow of a number of hilly streams and rejoin the main
river downstream. The most important of these offshoots is the titas, which takes off south of
Ghatalpar and after meandering through two long-bends extending over 240 km rejoins the
Meghna through two channels in Nabinagar upazila. Other offshoots of the Meghna are the
Pagli, Kathalia, Dhonagoda, Matlab and Udhamdi. The Meghna and these offshoots receive
water of a number of hilly streams from the Tripura Hills. The important hill streams are the
                       MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

gumti, Kakrai, Kagni, dakatia, Hawrah, Sonaiburi, Harimangal, Pagli, Kurulia, Balujuri,
Sonaichhari, Handachora, Jangalia and. All of these are liable to flash floods. The Gumti, Kakrai
and Hawrah are the most destructive rivers. They have silted their beds to the extent that they
now flow above the mean level of the land when brimful. Numbers of embankments have been
built to contain them. But every other year one or the other of these streams overflows and
causes considerable damage to crops, livestock and homestead.


The Meghna receives Tippera Surface streams from the east and flows from the enlarged
Dhaleshwari from the west. At the confluence, just north of Shatnol, the Meghna is about five
kilometres wide. Dhaleshwari comes down in a brown stream and meets the clear blue-green
Meghna. For many kilometres the waters do not seem to mix, for half the river water remains
brown and the other half blue-green. The boatmen are fond of pointing out this peculiarity.


Sixteen kilometres from Shatnol, the combined flow of the Ganges and Brahmaputra-Jamuna,
known as the padma, meets the Meghna at a 11 km wide confluence in the rainy season near
Chandpur. From this point southwards the Meghna is marked as the Lower Meghna, becoming
one of the broadest rivers and largest estuaries in the world.


Lower Meghna is the combined stream of the Padma and the Meghna (Upper Meghna),
reinforced by the Dhaleshwari. All the three rivers are large. The Dhaleshwari-Meghna and the
Padma are each 5 km wide at the confluence. The Lower Meghna has several small chars (braid-
bars) in it, which create two main channels, of which the large eastern one is 5 to 8 km wide.
The western channel is about 2 km in width. Near Muladi the 1.5 km wide Safipur river is an
offshoot from the right-bank. Further south, the Lower Meghna shifts into three channels: west
to east flowing tentulia (Ilsha) river, the Shahbazpur and the Bamni. The Ilsha is a 5 to 6.5 km
wide channel separating Bhola Island from the Barisal mainland.


West of the mouth of the Ilsha is the Rabnabad islands. Shahbazpur Channel, 5 to 8 km wide,
separates Bhola from Ramgati and Hatiya islands and at its mouth are the Manpura islands.
Bamni now is said to be nonexistent. Formerly it used to flow between the islands of Ramgati
and Char Lakshmi and the Noakhali mainland, and was at times the main outlet for Meghna.
                       MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

The tides and their bores always affected it considerably, and this channel narrowed or
widened in an unpredictable manner. After eroding a considerable part of the mainland in the
1940s, it suddenly shoaled to such an extent, just west of Noakhali town, that in winter there
was a land bridge from the mainland to Ramgati Island. To make this a permanent feature, a
large earthen cross dam was built. To accelerate the accretion of chars, a second cross dam was
built linking Noakhali mainland and Char Jabbar which rapidly built up nearly 260 sq km of land.


The estuary of the Lower Meghna is usually taken to stretch from the Rabnabad islands to the
Kumira coast, a distance of 153 km. The water is, however, saline for half of the year as far
north, as a line could be drawn from the middle of Bhola to the north of Sandwip. The estuary
of the Lower Meghna may be considered as extending between the Ilsha (Tentulia) and
Shahbazpur rivers which together have a width of about 40 km at the sea-face. The volume of
the estuarine discharge is not known, but at Chandpur the mean discharge from June to
October is around 2.5 million cusec. The mean maximum in this period of the year is about four
million cusec. The winter flow is about one-eighth of it although the river is even then several
kilometres wide. The low flow is due to the stream's sluggishness. In maximum flood, the Lower
Meghna's flow is no less than five million cusec. It is also estimated that from May to October
its daily load of sediments is nearly four million tons. The annual load of sediments carried by it
is about 1,500 million tons and annual water discharge about 875 million acre-feet (MAF). In
comparison, the Congo, La Plata and Yangtse rivers have a total annual flow of 1,022, 636 and
559 MAF respectively. The Lower Meghna, as the major outlet of the combined Ganges,
Brahmaputra and Meghna has therefore somewhat less outflow than the Congo, which is
second only to the Amazon.


The Lower Meghna (160 km) is measured from the south of Chandpur to as far as the Tentulia.
The flow is estimated for a point mid-way between Chandpur and Mehendiganj. The total
length of the Surma-Meghna is about 670 km. The length of the Upper Meghna is measured up
to Chandpur, but the discharge is measured at Bhairab Bazar.
                       MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

A larger number of settlements, towns, ports and industries have sprung up on both the banks
of the Meghna. Narsingdi, Chandpur, Barisal and Bhola are the district towns that stand on the
banks of the Meghna. Kuliarchar, Bhairab Bazar, Chandpur (Puran Bazar), Ramdaspur, Kalupur
and Daulatkhan are important riverports and business centres. The Ashuganj thermal power
plant and the Fenchuganj fertiliser factory are located on the banks of this river.


The Meghna is a flood-prone river. The bangladesh water development board (BWDB) has
implemented the Meghna Valley Project and constructed embankments along the riverbanks.
These embankments are protecting greater Sylhet, Mymensingh and Comilla districts from
floods. By constructing dams at different places a total of 180,000 ha of land has been brought
under irrigation. About 125 km of dams (Veri Bandh) have been constructed in the southern
region of Bangladesh under the coastal enbankment project. These are helping to control
floods and keep salinity off. These Veri Bandhs are also playing an important role in land
reclamation.


Dhaleshwari River a distributary of the jamuna, takes off in the northwestern part of tangail
district. It is a meandering river having two branches. The main stream flows north of
manikganj and joins the other branch, the Kaliganga, south of Manikganj. The Kaliganga again
joins with the Dhaleshwari. The buriganga was once a distributary of the Dhaleshwari and used
to discharge its flow again into the Dhaleshwari. It meets the shitalakshya river near
narayanganj and flows south to meet the meghna near Shaitnol and then loses its separate
identity. Total length of the river is about 160 km.


Ichamati River an old river, once well-known as the main river on the west of Dhaka. The river
originates from the south of Jafarganj opposite to the mouth of the hurasagar near Nathpur
Factory and runs towards Joginighat in Munshiganj. Five pilgrimage ghats [Panchatirtha ghat]-
Tirthaghat, Agla, Solepur, Barunighat and Joginighat stand along the river. Joginighat is situated
at the confluence of the brahmaputra and the Ichamati. Ichamati is the name of another
channel originating from the ganges at Rayta, northwest of Bheramara in Kushtia. The river first
flows west and then follows a southerly direction through Kushtia. The Ichamati is a trans-
                       MPL SMTP’11 THE CHANGE MAKER ®

boundary rivers and enters India at Darshana. Then it flows south along the Bangladesh-India
border and is renamed as the Kalindi at Debhata upazila of Satkhira district. It falls into the bay
of bengal as the Hariabhanga. Again, there is another river of the name Ichamati in Dinajpur
and the map of James Rennel shows that the Ichamati of Dhaka and the Ichamati of Dinajpur
are the same river. According to a number of hydrologists, these three Ichamati rivers, in the
past were a single channel.


Shitalakshya River originates from the old brahmaputra and bifurcates into two courses at Toke
in Gazipur district. One of the courses named the banar flows southwest and at Lakpur is
renamed as the Shitalakshya. It then flows east of Narayanganj town. The Shitalakshya falls into
the dhaleshwari near Kalagachhiya. The length of the river is about 110 km and the width near
Narayanganj is about 300 m but reduces to about 100 m in the upper reach. Its highest
discharge has been measured at 2,600 cumec at Demra. The river is navigable throughout the
year and shows little erosional tendency.


In the past, the famous muslin industry of the country flourished along the Shitalakshya. At
present, a number of heavy industries including the adamjee jute mills, stand on the banks of
Shitalakshya. There are three thermal powerhouses located at Palash, north of Ghorashal, and
one at Siddhirganj, on the bank of the river. The important riverport of Narayanganj is also
situated on its bank. The river was once famous for its clear and cool water. The river goes
under tidal effect for about five months of the year but never overflows its banks.
