SOS for 11 November Accident Victims

Many of us know that prominent secular activist, author and journalist from Bangladesh Shariar Kabir along with some of his close associates had met with a serious road accident on 11 November on their way to Thakurgaon near Saidpur by pass high way. While Payel, a devoted secular activist of the local committee died on the spot, rest experienced fatal injuries on their bodies and were  brought to Dhaka on the following morning. Since then they are under medial care in a private hospital. According to doctors they need prolonged treatment. The hospital expenditure is mounting every day. Unfortunately all except Shahriar Kabir and Kazi Mukul are from poor backgrounds and without any insurance coverage. Worse , late Payel has left his newly married wife and kids in jeopardy through his unexpected demise. It is next to impossible for them to meet the hospital expenditure plus medical treatment.

Under such circumstances, we, on behalf of Mukto Mona, urge all secular friends and well wishers from Bangladesh and beyond to come forward and make a financial contribution within the best of our ability. Based on our communications with Dhaka, we have set our target to raise BD Tk. 3-4 lakhs (around  approx. 5119 to 6825 USD) which would be spent in paying treatment cost and rehabilitation of the victims including late Payel's family.

If you can, kindly make a contribution on an urgent basis. 

With regards,

Prof Ajoy Roy
