He breathed his last breath around 11pm on Thursday at Mount Elizabeth Hospital. Suja  is survived by  his wife, son, daughter, grandchildren, and many supporters. 

Suja’s brother, SM Mortoza Rashid, confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune, saying: “My brother underwent a kidney transplant at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital around eight months ago. 

“Suja visited Singapore again on July 18 for treatment. His wife was with him when he passed away.”

SM Mostafa Rashidi Suja was born in the Fakirhat area of Bagerhat district on March 2, 1953. He began his political career around 1968-69 as an activist of Chhatra Union, the then the students’ wing of National Awami Party led by Mawlana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani.
