Sk Kamal is the pioneer of modern sports in Bangladesh: Nazmul

BSS, Dhaka

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hassan Papon yesterday paid rich tribute to Sheikh Kamal, stating that the eldest son of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman introduced modern sports here to give the country an identity in world sports arena.

Terming him as the pioneer of modern sports in Bangladesh, Papon said Sheikh Kamal did everything possible for the country’s sports through the Abahani and other organisations and paved the platform to raise the country’s flag high in various international events.

“He has immense contribution to introduce modern sports in the country for which we got our identity in the sports world. He was the big pioneer, which one can never deny,” Nazmul Hassan Papon said at a programme as the BCB observed the National Mourning Day in remembrance of the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family.

To mark this Day, the BCB arranged a ‘feeding of the less privileged’ on the Board’s Management Office premises, at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, in Mirpur on Thursday.

“August is the month of mourning. Our Father of the Nation Bangabandhu was killed with his family members on the day and the killers did not spare Sheikh Mujib’s wife, Kamal Bhai, Jamal Bhai and even Bangabandhu’s youngest son, Sheikh Russell on that day. Everyone knows what Bangabandhu’s contribution is towards achieving independence and it is the responsibility of everyone to observe the day of mourning. The Bangladesh Cricket Board is also observing the day with great respect,” the BCB president said.

Sheikh Kamal, the eldest son of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, found

his likings towards sports and cultural activities. The founder of country’s popular club Abahani Limited, Kamal is the first sports organiser who introduced modern equipment’s in country’s sports arena.
