    Default Lessons from a Bangladeshi Communist/Socialist, Sardar Fazlul Karim

    For a humane society

    Sardar Fazlul Karim, a veteran revolutionary of Bangladesh, used to say: a communist society is a humane society. And, he spent a significant part of his life for materializing the humane society.

    The assertion was not his innovation. It’s the lofty goal of the toiling people all around the world. And, the goal is built up on the scientific analysis of economy and society. This goal drove Sardar all through his life. It was his dream, his area of activism.

    Sardar Fazlul Karim has passed away on the early hours of June 15, 2014 in a Dhaka hospital. He was 89.

    To many, the National Professor was Sardar Sir, a teacher. And, many knew, he was a communist to his last breath. He had no confusion about humanity’s journey to communism. Based on a scientific analysis he dauntlessly stood for socialism during the liquidationist Gorbachev-days of so-called Glasnost-Perestroika.

    To him, human is a total entity. This led him to say: Human’s struggle to be humane is the struggle for communism, is the communist struggle.

    Sadar Fazlul Karim sounds like an incredible man, an outstanding human being. May he rest in peace and may his memory inspire others to continue the struggle for a society worthy of all of humanity.

    Thanks for posting and telling us about this great man dharma.

    Here is the Daily Star tribute.

    SARDAR Fazlul Karim(1925-2014) was and will always be abiding proof that greatness comes cloaked in the softness of humility.

    For him, revolution was a contemporary affair. “It is not right,” said he, “to ask when revolution will come. We are living through revolution…Today I see women working in the garments factories marching on the streets. That is revolution for me.”

    Thanks for those links eamo. We constantly need to be reminded that being humane and loving everybody equally is our end goal, as the selfish forces are trying to drift us away from that and divide us.

    Just thinking today about how the appearance of weakness of revolutionary organisation today is only part of the story, as the fundamental unity of our species and planet is an undeniable and objective foundation to everything. There must be so many millions of people who are waiting to come together to realise a different world, equal and social, communal. United Borotba (struggle) in Ukraine, in the very difficult circumstances, are trying for it. Paul Hill expressed it today when he said that it was the ordinary people of England and Ireland who got him free. There is the potential for a great explosion (in the positive sense ) of all this energy and experience.
