Mohammad Jamal Uddin, Chairman, Bauria Union Parishad
Alhaj Master Shahjahan, B A, is my political guru. He is a guardian and a dear leader to us all. In our sorrows and happiness, in progressive thinking and inspiration, this particular person is so much dear to us all, that I am unable to express by my language.
Shahjahan is an intelligent political personality and an organizer of our great Liberation War. Being inspired by the ideals of Father of the Nation Bnganandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahaman, Shahjahan had been the President of Bauria Union Awami League and carrying on the responsibility very efficiently for a long time. He was the President of Sandwip Thana Awami League for a few terms and is also current President. As a leader he has been working throughout his life under the label of boat very successfully.
He has been working amid dangers and troubles. In 1979, Awami League fell in political distress. At that crucial moment Shahjahan had been able to keep the people united in the election of National Parliament with the symbol of boat. He did not hanker after his own benefits. Rather in a number of National Parliament elections he campaigned in favour of the candidates of Awami League to make them elected.
Shahjahan has become a popular political leader through hardship. Shahjahan had been elected Chairman of Sandwip Upazila Parishad in 2009 with a landslide victory.
As a scholarly leader he has contributed much in the development of various educational intuitions in Sandwip. He took teaching as a noble profession in his early life.
During the rule of four party alliances, many Awami League leaders suffered much and faced various harassments. Sandwip was labeled as the city of terrorism. He, after being elected Chairman of Sandwip Upazila Parishad, urged his followers to forget the antagonism and forgive the heinous activities of the opponents. He has called upon all to come under the shadow of Awami League. Now Sandwip is a home of peace and happiness for all walks of life.
Shahjahan has set forth a unique example of various developments in Sandwip. He contributed in communication, infrastructures, health service, along with a cross-dam. He has played the principal role to welcome the Hon’ble Prime Minister of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina to Sandwip on 18 February 2012. Shahjahan placed the problems and demands of the inhabitants of the island before Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The Prime Minister has been able to understand different issues including the Cross-Dam and all other demands of the people of Sandwip as presented by Shahjahan. Under the able leadership of Shahjahan a mammoth gathering was held in Sandwip to welcom and listen to the Prime Minister on February 18, 2012.
In 2011, elections of 12 unions out of 15 were held in the upzila of Sandwip. Among those, 10 chairmen and 108 Union Parishad members have been elected from the Awami League under the leadership of Shahjahan.
As an elected chairman, Shahjahan served the people of Bauria with much credibility for long 27 years. People of Bauria from all corners, ignoring political chaos and confusion, love this man from the core of their hearts and convey blessings for him. He has furnished all management with his sincerity and idealism. Hence I am inspired with him to discharge my responsibilities sincerely. I bow down in respect towards him.

But there was Master Shahjahan in front of him I could not pronounce such words as I think him like my father. Then I informed the MP. The MP took him to principal’s room. Then I started my speech. But he must have heard my speech from there. I could not go before him a long time in shame.
