Jafor Alom [1957-2020] – Respected Father of ERC Board of Trustee Zahedul Haque


Condolence to the Family of Jafor Alom (1957-2020)

It is with heartfelt sorrow that the European Rohingya Council (ERC) received the devastating news of death of our esteemed Board of Trustee Zahedul Haque’s father Jafor Alom.

Mr. Jafor Alom had been suffering from chronic medical conditions for which he underwent numerous medical treatments for many years. Despite his ailing conditions, he had set an example in his son who continues to dedicate and contribute tirelessly and professionally at the European Rohingya Council in advancing the cause of persecuted Rohingya people.

Mr. Jafor Alom (also known as Badu) was a humble, caring and well-respected Rohingya elder from Quarter 5, the outskirts of Maungdaw township, Arakan, Myanmar.

He passed away at the age of 63 at home surrounded by his family in Chittagong, Bangladesh on October 2, 2020.

The passing of Mr. Jafor Alom is a deeply devastating loss for Zahedu Haque and the Rohingya community.

The European Rohingya Council conveys our sincere condolence and sympathy to the family and relatives of Mr. Jafor Alom on this bereavement. We pray to the Almighty Allah to grant him Jannah and his family the strength to bear the great loss with courage.
