Hasina's father was a great leader but no good administrator. He was more of a street agitator to tell you frankly.
However, we needed that kind of brave leader to get separated from west Pakistan. He was tall and handsome, too. From being Shaikh family, all of their men are handsome. Think of Shaikh Moni and his son Taposh the current Dhaka south City Mayor.
Yes the Sheikh was a rable-rouser, a good one at that. I heard one time he picked up a chair, beat up an MP with it and sent the guy to the hospital (who died later). Who knows.
But - his management skills were non-existent. Hence all the problems with his underlings who got finished off by the military.
