National University Vice-chancellor Professor Dr Md Mashiur Rahman expressed profound shock and sadness at the death of National Professor Rafiqul Islam on Tuesday.

Rafiqul Islam, one of the most distinguished researchers on National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, was the President of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s Birth Centenary Celebration National Implementation Committee and recipient of both Swadhinata Padak and Ekushey Padak, the highest civilian honours in the country.

In a condolence message, the NU VC said, “Professor Rafiqul Islam was the country’s leading Nazrul researcher and educationist. He had also played a crucial role during our Language Movement and Liberation War. In his death the nation has lost a bright star.”

The VC has also prayed for salvation of the departed soul and extended his deep sympathy to the bereaved family members.
