    My father K.M.Aziz (Mahboob Bhaiya’s mamma) was very close to him. I personally found him soft spoken and humble person. I do still remember the T shirts he brought me from England. Pictures taken from his lenses are still in my album. I wish I could visit Bristol when he was alive. May Allah grant him Jannat.

    Really its a very sad news. We played cricket together in 1973 in Nawabbari ground (Chacker). He was a very nice person. May Allah grant him Jannat.

    I am very sad to hear the sudden death of my dear cousin Mahbub bhai. I fondly remember the good old days in Dhaka when he used to come on his holidays and visit our family. He was a very soft spoken and good natured man who loved playing cricket with us. He once was seriously thinking about moving back to Dhaka and returned to Bangladesh to spend more time with his family.

    May Allah give peace to his soul and bless him with Jannat for eternity. We miss you very much dear cousin. Rest in peace.
