My father was also a journalist, writer and politician: Parash


Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash. Parash the eldest son of Sheikh Fazlul Haque Moni the founding chairman of Juba League, was born in Dhaka on July 2, 1970. Among those who were martyred, including Bangabandhu on 15 August 1975 Parsh's father Sheikh Moni and mother Sheikh Arju Moni were the first to be killed. At that time Parsh was only 5 years old.  He lost his parents forever. Younger brother Tapas is 4 years old. The two brothers had to live a miserable life after the murder of their parents.  Sometimes relatives had to hide in the house and sometimes they had to flee.  After spending two years like this, they moved to India in 1978 with Sheikh Asiya Begum.  Uncle Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, Sheikh Fazlur Rahman Maruf uncle Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehena were then refugees abroad.

Parash holds a secondary from Dhanmondi Government Boys High School an intermediate from Dhaka College and a bachelor's and master's degree from the English department of Dhaka University. He received his second MA in English Literature from Colorado State University in the United States. He received his Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Languages ​​from York University in Canada in 2017.

Back in the country he was involved in teaching English language and literature for a long time. He has taught with skill and reputation at various universities including BRAC University. He is currently teaching at East-West University. His articles have been published in various famous journals.  He has presented his research papers at various academic institutions. Parash embraces culture as well as education. Music is his favorite. On 23 November 2019 he was elected chairman of Awami Juba League, an organization formed by his father in the 7th National Congress. On Wednesday night, on the occasion of the 49th founding anniversary of the Juba League in an interview given to a private television, he described the miserable memories of that day.

Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash said that it is not possible to explain the horrible experience of that day in such a short range. But let me just say that losing a parent is a big deal.  I woke up very early in the morning to the sound of heavy vandalism. I got up and saw that my mother was not there. Only two of us brothers in bed.  Shots are being fired through the windows.  The bullets hit the walls and hit the floor.  There was a lot of crying and shouting in the stairs.  We two brothers went to the stairs crying in fear and saw our parents lying on the ground in a bloody state. Mother's feet resting on her father's chest. Grandma's sari is lying on the ground, and Grandma is blabbering on like crazy, banging her forehead against the wall.  At this point, he said to my great aunt, "Fatu, remove Arju's legs from the top of Monir's chest."  And the father is completely numb.  There is no sign of pain on the face.  He seems to be sleeping in peace.  Just a sign of skin rising under the throat.  I don't remember any other wounds on my father's body.

We two brothers were crying.  Apparently, we were crying out in fear, because we still don't know what death is. I didn't even know that people could no longer be found after death.  That was my first acquaintance with death.  Many deaths at once. Mar seems to be having a hard time leaving us. Mom wanted to drink water and was trying to survive. Outside, the sound of gunfire did not stop. The sound of terrifying gunfire and with it the sound of smashing windows. The mother said to the aunt, ‘Fatu save me. My side-tapas!  You see them. 'That is probably the last word.

I don't know what happened after that.  The sound of gunfire was increasing.  Someone seemed to be coming here again. Aunty then fled with us to her dressing room. He laid us on the floor so that no shots would be fired. The bullet seemed to be entering the dressing room through the bathroom window. After that we did not see our parents again. He said that the place of love and affection like parents really does not exist in the world anymore. For us it is a big wound, a big loss. kIt hurts me and my little brother, hurts every moment.  It is very normal to miss parents. However, my father has left with Bangabandhu, the father of the nation.  My father was a soldier of Bangabandhu and used to do politics with him.  He had a huge fan. Loved him.  He always followed the ideals of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. This makes me proud.  I am proud that my father died with the father of the nation.  This is another nice place to be.

Regarding the context of the murder, he said, the background is the same. The great liberation war of 1971.The defeated forces of this war are responsible for the August 15 massacre. The people of this country can guess who the conspirators are.  Those who are against independence, those who did not want the victory of Bengalis, have brutally killed Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family.  He also conspired to kill. In a voluntary interview with the BBC, Rashid, a self-confessed murderer, voluntarily referred to former military ruler Ziaur Rahman as a behind-the-scenes force.  Ziaur Rahman himself has left evidence that he was involved in the August 15 killings, ranging from rewarding the killers to successive ones.  So I will say that Ziaur Rahman was the culprit of the defeated power in the great liberation war in 1971. They are involved in this murder.

What did the assassins want to achieve through murder?  In response, Parash, who lost his parents, said that the murderous clique wanted to achieve something.  They never wanted Bangladesh to be a successful state or a self-sufficient country. Our enemies have never wanted the people of this country to be recognized as a developing and dignified nation in happiness and peace.  They always wanted Bangabandhu's struggle to fail.  It was their revenge.  A great revenge for the victory in the great liberation war of 1971. After killing our family and Bangabandhu in 1975, they made a blueprint to make this country a failed state.  Going forward according to that design.

They did that plan and work till Bangabandhu Kanya Hon'ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina came to power in 1996.  They were planning to establish this country as a radical, communal country, a militant country. There was an attempt to build a country around us or Pakistan type. I think it's a vengeance.
