Delwar Hossain Khan passed away

I dont know how you suddenly came into my life and brought happiness that i needed.You came so close to me,felt my pains and always encouraged me to lead a happy life.You are a person of material who has always shown correct path to me. Dada you promised that you will meet me when i will come to Dhaka.You told me and Maqbool that you are going to enjoy time with us in your place. Delwaar Da you did’nt keep your promise.

I met this person in Facebook (Thanks Facebook). I remembered the date. It was December 15th,2008 and the exact time was 7:36 PM. I found him commenting about some controversial topic. He was continuously fighting with some Pakistanis, who were saying something really bad about his country, Bangladesh. I supported his views and i sent him a message on Facebook. He replied me with a happy message and we became friends.We started becoming closer to each other sharing various view points about our Bengal. I used to tell him about Kolkata and he used to tell me about his motherland Dhaka.

Our relation was only based on social networking through facebook not more than that, but still this person became my friend, mentor and guide. Delwar Hossain Khan, the name that brings smile and happiness on everyone’s face, was a great person as far as i have analyzed him. He possessed immense knowledge on every subject regardless of history, medicine or religion…you name it and Delwaar Da was always there to give you an idea about the topic. A great entrepreneur with a great vision for Bangladesh and its people.

Within a short time of period he became really close to me. He used to get worried when i fall sick some time and was hospitalized. He even told my friend Dr. Maqbool Hussain that he is going to pray (Dua) for me so that i can recover soon. Dada was so conscious about my health that he once asked Maqbool to give the number of the doctor, so that he can directly ask doctor about my health. I can say only one thing that people can become so close to each other, even they don’t know each other, they became so close that it really hurts if he or she leaves us suddenly.

Delwaar Da, you are a great person. I will never forget you.You are my dada, you are my guide to show me correct path. Dada, wherever you are please bless me with your love and remember you didn’t keep your promise to meet me. Why you left us alone to cry? Dada…may God bless you with His choicest blessings. Joy Bangla…Joy Bangali was your favorite qoute. Joy Bangla dada..for you….Love you Mr.Khan!

Editor’s Note: Delwaar Hossain Khan was a common friend on Facebook. He was a kind heart man and always helped everyone understand what are the actual facts on several things. He passed away with Cardiac Arrest.

Readers of Pakistan Time along with Team of Pakistan Times pray for him that May Allah bless his soul and award higher levels in Heaven. And give patience to the family of bereaved; bear this loss. Ameen

  • Sana uparwale ko bhi ache insaan o ki zaroorat hote hai…..unko bhi pyaar ki zaroorat hai….woh khud pyaar ka bhuka hai!….Delwaar Da ki jaisa gyani insaan bahut kaam dikhta hai……immense wisdom….Innalillah e Wa Inna elaihe rajioon.Bhagwaan unki atma ko shanti de…..

  • I knew him personaly. He used to drink alot. You need to mention this also. I know when you know someone thru online like facebook and someone thru the real life, you don’t know everything about the person. I would say I knew for over the last 30 years.

  • Dear Raj,

    Do you think that drinking alcohol is something to mention?..is it really a sin to drink?…does it makes any difference?…..ya i know him through Facebook ..yes correct!….but as far as i have analyzed him he was a great soul…..please pray for the departed soul…may ALLAH bless his soul forever…
