  Khaleda Zia Summary
Khaleda Zia, the widow of former Bangladesh president Ziaur Rahman Zia (1936–1981), was born in Jalpaiguri (now in West Bengal, India), although her family was from the Feni district in Bangladesh.
Khaleda Zia (Bangla: খালেদা জিয়া) (born 15 August 1945) is the Prime Minister of Bangladesh.
