Qamarara Zaman Hyder, daughter of Syeduzzaman and Sikandar Ara Zaman, has passed away in Dhaka’s United Hospital on Wednesday afternoon.
Born on April 15, 1938, she was 80-year old at the time and has left behind a host of relatives and friends to mourn her death.
Her namaz-e-janaza was held in Gulshan Azad Mosque after the Asr prayers on Wednesday.
Later in the evening, she was laid to rest beside her parents and sibling in their family graveyard in Dhaka’s Begum Bazar.
Today in the afternoon, a qulkhani ceremony will be organized in her memory after Asr prayers at Gulshan Jame Mosque, on Gulshan Avenue (next to HSBC Bank) in Gulshan 1.
Her family members invite everyone to attend the peace offering ceremony and gather to pray for the eternal rest of her departed soul.
Previously, Qamarara had suffered a serious cardio-respiratory attack on March 7 and went into a coma.
Her late father Mr Syeduzzaman was the first Muslim chartered accountant of the Indian subcontinent.
She was also the niece of Syed Nazrul Islam, who served as the acting president of Bangladesh, under the provisional government formed by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1971.
Professor Rehman Sobhan and Farooq Sobhan, former foreign secretary, are both her maternal cousins, while incumbent MP from Kishoreganj 1 Dr Syeda Zakia Nur Lipi is her paternal cousin.
