The name of the municipality is Kesarhat Municipality. A number of freedom fighters from Mohanpur Upazila received training in India in 1971 A.D. Responding to the call of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, they received training in India and participated in the Great Liberation War. Since the freedom fighters of Mohanpur were active in the 1971 AD independence war, there was no attack by Pak forces anywhere in this upazila during the 9 months of the war. The Pakistani army set up a Razakar camp in Sankoa Madrasa near Kesharhat and many people died due to the brutal torture of the Razakars of that camp. At the end of November 1971, the freedom fighters attacked the camp of Sankoa Razakar, captured the camp and freed Sankoa from Razakar.
