Organised by the Department of English of Jahangirnagar, with its Chairman Associate Professor Dr Sanyat Sattar in the chair, the department’s founding chairman Professor Nurul Islam, a colleague of Prof Zillur, Prof Mesbah Uddin Salehin of the Department of Geography and Environment, Gono University teacher Prof Mahmud Shah Koreshi, JU English department’s Associate Professor Mashrur Shahid Hossain, department’s former students Ariful Islam Laskar and Kalyani Benerjee, among others, spoke at the programme.

They said the university gained honour being linked with the identity of Zillur and his contribution and fame at home and abroad, which in turn enhanced the status of the nation and termed him a symbol of decency. They also said he would remain alive in the hearts of the people of the country for ever.

Dr Sattar spoke to the Dhaka Tribune reminiscing the late educationist and showing him gratitude.

Zillur had joined the English department as a professor on July 9, 1973 and retired on June 30, 1992. He served as JU Vice Chancellor from May 1, 1976 to April 30, 1984.

“Our department is extremely grateful to him because it is widely acclaimed in the country and internationally just because of his work and fame,” he said. 

Sattar said the  teachers of the department had decided to name its conference room after Zillur as a tribute to him.
