Madhur Canteen (meaning Madhu’s canteen) is a familiar name in the history of Dhaka University as well as in the history of national politics in Bangladesh due to its association with many of the political movements that originated from Dhaka University. The current building has important architectural and heritage value.
Madhusudan Dey (Modhu), the canteen's founder, is equally important in the socio-political history of the region. He was killed on March 25, 1971 at the beginning of the Bangladesh Liberation War, when he was taken to Jagannath Hall by the Pakistani military and executed. After the Liberation War, Arun Kumar Dey assumed the responsibility of running the canteen. Even after Modhu’s death the canteen remains not only a significant landmark but also a place of gathering in the community.
