History
Soon after the historical Language Movement, in 1956 Bangla was recognized as one of the state languages of Pakistan, in the country’s first Constitution. Shortly thereafter, Principal Abul Kashem, former professor of University of Dhaka and pioneer of the Bengali Language Movement, realized that Bangla is neglected in every different field in Pakistan. In 1960, in a meeting for Martyrs’ Day at Curzon Hall at University of Dhaka, He said “Even before West Pakistan was formed, they have established Urdu College to made Urdu as State language of Pakistan. Government of Pakistan has contributed fund and land toward Urdu College. Although we have fought so much, Government is still ignoring our plea. If government doesn’t response, we should create a Bangla Medium College in the future.”[2]

Then in 1961 He had some discussion with some educationists and intellectuals regarding setting up a higher level institute in East Pakistan.

The college became affiliated with the University of Dhaka in 2017.[3]
