Christchurch mosque massacre

Family waits for victim's body

Our correspondent, Chandpur
Family waits for victim's body

Dr Mozammel Huque Selim of Matlab Dakshin upazila of Chandpur went to New Zealand to study dentistry. But he lost his life in the brutal terrorist shooting on Muslims in two Christchurch mosques in New Zealand on Friday. Ever since receiving the news of Selim's death in the terrorist attack, his family members—his mother Amena Begum (65), his eldest brother Shahadat Hossain (50), another brother Abdul Malek (40), and his only sister Jesmin Akter (32)—are in a state of shock and grief.

Amena Begum wants the punishment of the killers of her son. She is spending most of her time with a photograph of her son. They recalled that they had raised money together and took out a loan (Tk. 20 lakh) from Agrani Bank and NGOs to send Selim to New Zealand for higher education in 2015. They were expecting a better future after Selim's return to the homeland. But the mindless killing has shattered their dreams.

Selim, a student of Narayanpur High School, had passed the SSC Exam with good marks. Before going to New Zealand, he completed his BSc in dentistry from Mirpur Marks Dental College in Dhaka.

His close relatives want Selim’s body back as soon as possible. They have urged the government to do whatever was necessary to make that possible.

The brothers of Selim now are at a loss as to how they would repay the loan that they had taken out to send Selim abroad for higher studies.
