The Socialist Party of Bangladesh (SPB) (Bengali: বাংলাদেশের সমাজতান্ত্রিক দল — বাসদ) is a proletarian revolutionary party in Bangladesh based on an ever-developing understanding of Marxism-Leninism. It is one of the largest communist parties in the country. The party was founded by Khalequzzaman on 7 November 1980.[1]


SPB follows a Marxist-Leninist ideological line. The party claims to uphold the original intent of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Zedong.
