Interview with Nawab Khwaja Habibullah Askari- Part 1

October 11, 2010

Nawab Khwaja Habibullah Askari is the 6th Nawab of Dhaka. He is followed by Nawab K Abdul Ghani, Nawab K Ahsanullah, Nawab K Salimullah, Nawab K Habibullah and Nawab K Hassan Askari. His mother Bilquis Begum is from the royal family of Surat and his other siblings are K Salimullah, K Samiullah, K Amanullah and Shahriar Begum.He is now living in New York with his family.

The DNF website team recorded this exclusive interview which encompasses most of the arrears involving The Dhaka Nawab Family- its past present and future.

Part one (11 minutes) covers the following topics- The young Nawab’s feeling about his son’s heroic act, memories of his father, reasons for decline of Dhaka Nawab Estate, Bangladeshi politics, his return from Karachi and his effort to recover the family property.

The second part ((12 minutes) is about his view on Sir Salimullah orphanage, B Association, ongoing litigation, Askari Jute Mills , Dariya I Noor, and his future plans.

We got to know the Nawab’s view first hand through his own words. Hope this will clarify any issues and enrich knowledge to the Nawab Family enthusiasts.

  3. Syed Reaz Salim Says:

    Interview of Habib Askari on your website has been informative.Few points I would like to add.
    The Estate properties under Court of ward is not repeat not the properties of Nawab Salimullah.It is the properties of Nine Sharer.Habib Askari after returing from Pakistan claimed the properties to be of Nawab Salimullah.Even his dear father nor Nawab Habibullah ever claimed.He was many time offered to join the BE association and to fight for our rights together.Even Khawja Zaki Ashanullah,K.M.Harris,Naim Murad and others refused to be in the Association.They challenge every were and made our case week with the Govt.The Govt took full advantage of our disunity and did whatever they wanted with our vast properties.Even they gave lease of our properties to outsider and none to the owners.
    With due respect to Habib Askari,We would have been happy if we all together unitedly fought for our rights.Some members sold our lands for small amount of money,knowing that only Court of Wards could do it.It became Hure loot.WE are responsible for our own destruction.I can go on and on,maybe later.It will hurt a lot of people.Before I end would like to say that a lot of our Elders left Bangladesh for Pakistan And that also was a very good reason.WE had no Nawab during the early stage of bangladesg.WHY

    Askari Jute Mills has been looted by the members of our family.Even now they are trying to sell it.Who are responsible for it.Please commentIt is very sad that our very own members have done it.


    IN RESPONSE TO SYED REAZ SALIM , IT IS TO BE POINTED OUT THAT THE MYTH OF THIS NINE SHARERS PROPERTIES HAS NOW BEEN FULLY EXPOSED..The Supreme court of Bangladesh disallowed the petitions of the BE association members ,who were trying to be party,to the case filed by me against the government of Bangladesh. The supreme court appellate division in its granting of leave to appeal against the high court order,has directed the government that they have bring a full tally of all moveable and immoveable properties ,irrespective of their position and place it before the supreme court. The petition of the so called nine sharers to the properties of the Nawab of Dhaka and there attempt to be a party to this Historical has been firmly rejected. people should Know facts before casting aspersion,or attempt to bend any facts… today the bangladesh government cannot sell any land , or lease any property for more then a year. The documents are all placed in the courts. so there is no hearsay. you must back up with facts -records etc.people who want to know shall be informed in the future . Thank you

  6. Syed Reaz Salim Says:

    Sorry Habib I did not know the latest decision of the Court.Good luck to you.
