Rahman, Shamsur

Rahman, Shamsur
▪ 2007

      Bengali poet, journalist, and human rights advocate (b. Oct. 24, 1929, Dacca, British India [now Dhaka, Bangladesh]—d. Aug. 17, 2006, Dhaka), earned the designation “unofficial poet laureate of Bangladesh” with more than 60 volumes of heartfelt, often fiercely patriotic poetry. His best-known poem, “Shadhinota tumi” (“My Liberation”), was composed in 1971 at the height of the war for independence from Pakistan. Although Rahman studied English literature at the University of Dhaka (B.A., 1953), he supported the campaign to retain Bengali as the official language of East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), and his poetry reflected the natural, colloquial speech of Dhaka as well as Persian, Urdu, and English vocabulary. For many years he earned a living as the editor of the daily newspaper Dainik Bangla and other publications. Rahman was an outspoken secularist Muslim, and in 1999 he survived an assassination attempt by Islamic extremists.
