A letter to the world on the birthday of Mubashar’s daughter
“Can you place yourselves in the shoes of my brother (Mubashar), not for long, just two minutes? ........ Not possible.........”
On the occasion of the sixth birthday of Ariyana, the only child of missing North South University teacher Mubashar, his sister Tamanna Tasmin penned a letter to the people of the world on social media network Facebook.
In the long Facebook status, Tamanna, wrote of the love and anguish Mubashar must be feeling to be far away from his child on her birthday.
“Can you at least understand a little bit of the pain my brother is in? Why can he not hold his only daughter in his arms on her birthday? Why do we have to lie to a little child of six?” she wrote.
Ariyana Nawar Hasan turned six today and spent a quiet birthday among family members in the absence of her father.
Mubashar, a researcher of political Islam and assistant professor of political science at NSU, disappeared after he had left his workplace around 4:30pm on November 7. Police said he last talked with someone using his phone at 6:41pm on that day when he was near Lions Eye Hospital.
Motahar Hossain, the father of Mubashar, filed a general diary the next day with Khilgaon Police Station.
He is among a host of individuals who have fallen victims to abduction or enforced disappearance in recent months.
While talking to The Daily Star today, Moshiure Rahman, officer-in-charge of Khilgaon Police Station, said efforts are on to locate the missing academic.
