It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing early this morning of Mr Mahmud Hussein. Whilst this has come of a profound shock to all of us that the privilege to know him, it does at least afford an opportunity to reflect on the person he was and the world he worked for. Many different people will have good reason to remember Mahmud Hussein with affection. He was a man of enormous drive, empathy and vision. To some he was a man of business and enterprise, to others a fearless campaigner for a better world tomorrow. Proud of his family, he often reflected on his early years in Bangladesh and of his desire to enable others to have opportunities in life. Even when troubled by periodic bouts of ill health he was determined to conserve his energy so that he could continue his struggle to address some of the world’s iniquities. He engaged and correspondent with world leaders and had an intense believe that each of us have a duty to serve mankind to the best of his ability. His faith was sincere and free from pride. He surprised many by his desire to bring disparate and often polarized communities together. Even over the last few days he had been focused on a new and exciting initiative designed to help bring nations and communities together. His was a life of challenges, occasional disappointments and extraordinary achievements, all who encountered sensed that his was someone who did not just talk, but endeavoured to achieve. He has now been called to a better world and now the rest us must honor his memory by doing what we can to carry the torch that he ignited and cherished with such passion. May he rest in peace.

Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy was born to Justice Sir Zahid Suhrawardy and Khujesta Akhtar Banu in Midnapur, Bengal (now West Bengal), India, on 8 September 1892. He received his early education from his mother and his uncle, Sir Abdullah al-Mamun (who had studied at Oxford University and been a founder-member of the Pan Islamic Society in London), before he entered the Calcutta Aliya Madrasah and graduated with honours in science from St. Xavier's College. He obtained an MA degree in Arabic Calcutta University in 1913 before leaving for England later that year.

In England he enrolled at Oxford University, where he graduated in science with honours and received his BCL degree. His elder (and only) brother, Hasan Shahid Suhrawardy, graduated from Oxford as well, and both were involved with the Oxford Majlis. Huseyn was called to the Bar at Gray's Inn in 1918 and returned to Calcutta in 1920 where he started practising as a barrister.

Soon after returning to India, Suhrawardy married Begum Naiz Fatima, the daughter of Sir Abdur Rahim, who was a judge of the Calcutta High Court, a member of the Governor's Executive Council and president of the Indian Legislative Assembly. Begum Naiz died in 1922. They had one son, Shahab Suhrawardy, who died in London in 1940 while pursuing his studies at Oxford, and one daughter, Akhter Jahan Suhrawardy, who married Shah Ahmed Sulaiman, the son of Sir Mohammad Sulaiman.

He joined the Swaraj Party, under the leadership of C. R. Das, in 1923 and became Deputy Mayor of Calcutta in 1924. After the death of Das, Suhrawardy turned to separatist policies and eventually joined the All India Muslim League. In 1946, Suhrawardy headed the Muslim League government, as Prime Minister, in Bengal. On 16 August 1946, mobs of Muslims attacked Hindus in their demand for a Pakistan. Suhrawardy is often held responsible for not intervening. In 1956, Iskander Mirza made Suhrawardy Prime Minister after Chaudhry Muhammad Ali had resigned. However, due to the political turmoil of Pakistan at that time, he resigned on 17 October 1957. After being disqualified from politics by Muhammad Ayub Khan, Suhrawardy relocated to Lebanon where he died in 1963.

Nelson Mandela – Hero of Our Time

The death of Nelson Mandela (1918 – 2013) reminds us all what a remarkable person we have lost, but also underscores what a paucity of great leaders there are in the world today. The reaction to his passing has in some ways echoed that when Mother Theresa died in 1997, people right across the political spectrum and none have taken to the airways and social media to share their memories or pay tribute. The dignity, the determination and the humor of the man evidently touched many lives. Here was someone whose life was shaped by the struggle to fight against injustice and the iniquities of the Apartheid Regime in South Africa. Mandela spent some 27 years in prison, many of them incarcerated on Robben Island (www.robben-island.org.za) and yet for all that he endured he remained convinced of the need to build a ‘Rainbow Nation’. President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya has spoken of he; “embodied the power of hope and believed in the power of forgiveness...He bequeathed us the understanding that we can and should unconditionally forgive those who wrong us.” Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper in his moving tribute highlighted how; “he modelled how people can transform their own times and in doing so their own lives.” This spirit of transformation is something that will clearly endure, for Mandela helped end segregation and in so doing sowed the seeds for a more cohesive society, something that has given hope to others.
Coincidently last night in London a Royal Premier for the biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom was taking place. Idris Elba the British actor who played Mandela made clear that he felt humbled to have asked to play such a remarkable individual; “What an honour it was to portray a man who defied odds, broke down barriers, and championed human rights before the eyes of the world”. Queen Elizabeth II of England in her own tribute has spoken of peace in South Africa being his legacy, whilst the British Prime Minister David Cameron was quick to describe Mandela as; “a hero of our time”. We all need people to admire, to learn from, to emulate and look up to and it is clear that many see South Africa’s First Black President as an exemplar in many respects. South Africa’s current president, Jacob Zuma, who announced Mandela’s passing to the world, spoke of; “Our nation has lost its greatest son”.
As time passes many will wish to analyse and explore Mandela’s legacy. Here was an individual who was shaped by past experiences and yet not enslaved by them. Many institutions such as the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory (www.nelsonmandela.org) will continue to honour his memory and encourage others to learn from his example. New biographies will be written, hopefully objective ones that cherish the quest for truth, rather than the mere production of hagiographies. Mandela himself keenly articulated his desire to see individuals use their struggle to help others; “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedoms of others.” The sad fact is that across the continent of Africa in particular, humility and service is in particularly short supply, especially amongst the very Heads of State that will make much of his being a fellow African. The Human Right Risk Index 2014 (http://maplecroft.com/portfolio/new-analysis/2013/12/04/70-increase-countries-identified-extreme-risk-human-rights-2008-bhuman-rights-risk-atlas-2014b/) reminds us all just how much work remains to be done.
Whilst to extent this is a time of sadness, we should also be grateful, for we have been privileged to witness an individual who made a positive difference in our time. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela – Rest in Peace.

To Begum Khaleda Zia,

Leader of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party,

Salaam alaikum,

RE: Striking at the heart

There was a time when Bangladeshis were one people, yet now we are fast regressing into a clan-like mentality that sees people viewed according to their supposed political leanings. Under resourced hospitals are having to deal with victims of politically motivated violence and lives, many young lives are being lost in order that others follow their own narrow ‘vision’ of how things should be. Unsavoury elements are exploiting the poor, the unemployed, the disposed and the deluded and using them to perpetrate acts of vandalism and thuggery. I for one heartily condemn those who have chosen to take the country down this road to ruination. As for strikes they are only adding fuel to the fire and increasing the suffering of the ordinary people a hundred fold. The hostile rhetoric and gamesmanship must end.

In recent weeks I have followed the sophistry and semantics with a feel of total discussed, especially as those claiming to be working for the good of the nation are actually undermining its stability and economic prospects. I implore you to change tack and take a more constructive role, one that rises above mere personalities and seeks to put the service of the people first. The BNP needs to demonstrate it has the capacity to work with others and be prepared to compromise. How many more people must die before sanity finally prevails? These are perilous times and the architects of all this antagonism will have to answer for their vanity, pride and total disregard for the safety and well-being of others.

I pray that you and your advisors will take cognizance of the serious misgivings and concerns that people have. Insha’Allah you will wish to reflect upon this with all seriousness and I trust that you will have the courage to take a different approach, one that will aimed at healing and unity.

Yours respectfully,
Mahmud Hussein
