Syed Nazrul Islam is one of the top four national leaders of Bangladesh. He was a senior politician and Awami League leader from East Pakistan. In the wartime, he was elected as vice-president of Bangladesh, but because of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s absence, he became the acting President of Bangladesh. As like Sheikh Mujib, Nazrul Islam also stayed in office for 270 days.
