Condolence message at the death of Justice K M Subhan

Dear friends, colleagues, and community members

Bangabandhu Society (Parishad) expresses its deepest sorrow at the recent
death of Justice K. M. Subhan, the President of Bangabandhu Parishad in
Bangladesh. Justice Subhan has been a prominent personality in Bangladesh
and internationally. Apart from his professional achievements as a High
Court Judge and an Adbassador to Poland, Justice Subhan played a very
important role in defence of the Liberation War ideals and other progressive
causes. He was a brave person who did not hesitate to take positions that
would put him at risk. His courageous stand as a Judge against the martial
law in the late 1970s that cost him his job is a monumental history in
Bangladesh. He made substantial contributions to the propagation of human
rights nationally, regionally, and globally, where he held important
positions. There are few such people combining progressive ideals,
intellect, and courage. His death is an irreparable loss for us all and the
cause of democracy, secularism, and human rights.

Bangabandhu Parishad offers its sincere condolences to Justice Subhan's
wife, family members, friends, and innnumerable admirers in Bangladesh and
abroad. We hope that the memory of Justice Subhan will live on, and members
of the younger generation will find inspiration from his work, idealism, and
courage. May the Almighty bestow peace on his departed soul.
