Bagha Jatin’s Homestead

Rebel jatindranath Mukherjee was one of those who were the pioneers of the movement against the British. He was born in 1879 at Biskhali village in Harinakunda upazila of Jhenidah district. Later he was brought up at his maternal uncle’s house at Koya village of Kushtia. His father was Umesh Chandra Mukherjee and mother was Sharat Shashi Devi. In 1907, he without a weapon killed a tiger with the strike of a dagger. Since then he was called Bagha (tiger-like) Jatin. Jatinranath was a top leader of the revolutionary party Jugantor. He made a bomb factory to use bombs against the British. In 1904, the partition of Bengal took place and he protested against it.  This revolutionist along with some of fellow fighters died in a gun fight with the police forces. At present, there are no signs and existence of the paternal homestead of Bahga Jatin in Jhenaidah and those of his maternal uncle’s house at Koya village Kushtia.
