Colonel Shahid Uddin Khan, psc (Retd), the CEO of Prochhaya Limited Must Be Honoured And Saluted.
1. It has always been found that most of elites of the society say, “If require somebody should sacrifice his own position/service/interest for the cause of national interest, justice and honesty”. But when somebody has practically done so, none of those elites found to raise their voices for upholding that individual who sacrificed himself for those good causes. Colonel Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, psc (Retd), the CEO of Prochhaya Ltd is one of those great personalities, who did not care for his outstanding military career while fighting against the corrupted people. He is not much senior to me; but while serving under him, I found him to be a personality of honesty, courage and above all a man of justice. I can cite here a few examples in this regard. The Chairman of Anti-corruption Commission (ACC-Dudok) Mr. Golam Rahman has been telling that the ACC is without its tooth and nails since the day he joined the commission. His this sort of statement expresses his duplicitous or fraudulent type character, because neither he undertook drastic action to shape up the things nor he resigned his post for his dissatisfaction on the systems. Ultimately what he did, he even kept holding his post more than a month after the expiry of his date of retirement; this is also a kind of corruption. Besides, many retired Military Generals, Secretaries, Higher Officials are also found to make adverse comments on the systems; they talk all these rubbish after retirement to get more benefits in some forms or the other. But they never resigned or revolted against the bad systems whilst in service, they rather took every bit of benefits from the systems or Govt and exploited their positions to their optimum advantages and gains. We also find our Higher Level Politicians of both the govt party and opposition blame each other for corruptions, whereas all of them are fully corrupted; this is where our Nation stands. But what Ex Col Shahid Khan Sir did, he did not compromise with any unethical or immoral acts since his boyhood, as I know. He even faced court-martial with courage and accepted a miserable life following the dismissal, but ultimately he won battle and Allah duly Awarded him in due course of time, although the elites of the society are still silent on these noble grounds.
2. Off late, I could find some stupid type comments against our most respected Shahid Khan Sir in some of the fake online medias. I tried to contact him several times, but failed; he actually keeps hardly any contact even with his close relatives after his departure from Bangladesh Army. As I came to know, he is very busy with his studies for PhD in the UK and also with his charity programmes of his foundation (Prochhaya Foundation). However, I wish to give a brief record of our most respected Colonel Shahid Khan Sir:
a. Everyone knows that Colonel Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, psc (Retd), the CEO of Prochhaya Ltd had an outstanding military career; but he was never careerist type, he is rather professional one, who always kept common or professional interest above any other. He never compromise with the unethical and illegal acts; he fought against all these undismayed by any danger, which he is still pursuing, I believe.
b. During Col Shahid Khan’s service in BDR now BGB, he seized smuggled goods of about Taka One Hundred (100) Crore and arrested more than 300 culprits within only Eight (08) months time. He was officially awarded for that. He did not even spare the relatives and brothers of Ministers, serving Generals, DG BDR General Jahangir etc. He had broken BDR’s record of last 32 years in anti smuggling and as I know that none could break his record till today. Thereafter, rest of his BDR service tenure completed with FGCM convened based on an anonymous letter, which is politically motivated; of course, there was no charge against him on dishonestly misappropriation of money/properties in the said FGCM. An officer cannot make such an achievement without honesty and integrity. All these information about Colonel Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, psc (Retd), the CEO of Prochhaya Ltd were published in the first page of most of the print medias of Bangladesh about 04 years before (Paper Cuttings Attached), no one raised any doubt or question on all those; now where from these fake type media people got such information about Shahid Khan Sir all on a sudden? I will introduce most them at the end of this article.
c. Ultimately Colonel Shahid Khan Sir had to face FGCM convened based on an anonymous letter, which was written against the top leaders of the then 4 Party Alliance govt. Although it was disproved that Col Shahid Khan did not write the letter, but the court had to dismissed him under political pressure. The then CAS Lt Gen Hasan Mashud once sent back the FGCM file to review and give verdict again to put Shahid Khan into jail. Allah saved him, because he was innocent, which he also proved in later stages. In two of the verdicts, the court has written, “No act against the accused found linked with money for his personal interest”. Generally military accused does not get such highly honoured remarks/observations in the verdicts of this kind of harmfully motivated FGCMs held in a country like ours. When Shahid Sir’s FGCM started, most of the junior officers were seized by panic and unequivocally commented, “None should ever believe that Shahid Khan Sir would face FGCM for any unethical or morale turpitude related acts, he must have broken someone’s head for which he is facing this FGCM”. Actually this is what the impression we all juniors always cherish about Colonel Shahid Khan Sir.
d. Colonel Shahid Khan Sir did not forward any mercy petition to Army Headquarters after his dismissal through FGCM, because he has been confident that he would get justice one day and he believes in seeking mercy from Almighty Allah only, none else. Had he had sought mercy from Army Headquarters, he would have got minimum Taka 45 Lac as a retired person which he badly required for his survival during that time. He rather suffered a lot for about five years when his children’s studies were also at stake because of acute monetary crisis. Within 03 months of his dismissal, he applied to the then Premier Khaleda Zia possibly as per Army Acts 130 and 131 to get his rank back i.e. for reinstating him to Army, this was simply a judicial process as per the military law and he had ultimately won the judicial battle accordingly after about five years. When he fell in problem with the BDR HQs, we told him to go to DG, BDR Gen Jahangir. He said, “No and there will no personal liaison, I will face by law”. Lot of officers having many allegations like womanizing, corruptions, illegally misappropriation of money etc got rid of all these, because they either establish monetary sharing or go for holding legs of their superior officers. But Shahid Khan Sir wanted to face the FGCM by law with courage; he did so and won judicial battle after about five years by incurring huge physical, mental and social losses. However, he believes that our Prophet Hajrat Muhammad (PBUH) had Suffered a lot by the non-believers during His Prophesy, but ultimately He (PBUH) remains amongst us with highest honour and dignity and will remain so till the doomsday. Therefore, Ex Colonel Shahid Khan Sir says, “I, being the Ummat of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), am yet to suffer one thousandth of it or even much more less than that, so why to worry”.
e. Retired Colonel Shahid Khan Sir used to cherish his intuition and also strong conviction that someday he would get his respect back and Allah Has Awarded him accordingly as he got his respect back after about five years through judicial process. It is not like others, who got retirement or some promotion on political grounds. In Shahid Sir’s case, the FGCM was cancelled through judicial process, he got his service back and promoted to the rank of Colonel and then retired. So far I know it is a unique case in the history of not only Bangladesh Army but also others. None of the elites of the country is found to bring this brave and honest gentleman in the forefront to encourage others. This will not happen because our society is so politicised that a non-political person like Shahid Khan Sir could be honoured. Of course, Colonel Shahid Khan Sir is not worried about all these at all because as I know that he will never do politics and he is rather dedicated to do something for the poor people; this much I could assess about him by studying his foundation’s website (www.prochhaya-foundation.com).
f. I had visited Colonel Shahid Khan Sir’s In Law’s Cold Storage named Bandishahi Cold Storage Ltd several times in Comilla in late 1990s during my posting in Comilla Cantonment. This went bankrupt soon because of the non-cooperation of the bank and they had to experience lot of sufferings for this. Colonel Shahid Khan Sir’s In Law died in massive heart attack mainly due to this bankrupt. After Ex Col Shahid Khan Sir’s dismissal from Army, he got involved with this project and after about 03 years of struggle he could clear everything from the Hon’ble High Court. This is how Allah Gives lifts to the good people like him; our beloved and excellent lady, Shahid Bhabi became rich by selling the cold storage in 2008 and later made huge profit by investing in another land in Darussalam, Mirpur.
g. This is how Ex Col Shahid Khan Sir’s family became monetarily sound by 2008. People say that Col Shahid Khan Sir did lot of businesses during this Govt; doing business honestly is not a crime, but still Col Shahid Khan Sir did not do any business during this Govt, so this is totally false and fabricated. I had a search through his documents in Tax, NBR and other offices, where I found no trace of those fabricated stories; anyone can search like this about him before making any comment. Col Shahid Khan Sir neither took any monetary benefit nor any undue advantage from the present Govt, whereas his politically motivated dismissal created some degree of negative impression in the Army against the then Jamat-BNP Govt and the same in turn gave some count of political benefit to Awami League. As I, know Col Shahid Khan Sir has again come back to bankruptcy, because he has invested all his funds in a land in Hatirjheel, he cannot come back to financial strength unless he sells off this piece of land immediately and I sincerely pray that Allah Will Definitely Continue to Rescue him like before. I have my account in the same bank, where Sir’s company also maintains its account. The Manager of the bank suddenly commented about Shahid Khan Sir saying, “Col Shahid Sir is taking huge loans from our bank and continuing his foundation’s charity programmes expecting that his land in Hatirjheel would be sold soon at high price, how is this possible, has he lost his sense, if the land is not sold, where he will stand?” I replied, “We saw him like this about twenty years ago, when he used to take OD from the bank for helping his relatives and friends, but Allah always rescued Him at the end”.
h. Here I remind those fake online writers that Col Shahid Khan Sir has not got any DOHS plot from Bangladesh Army till today, whereas many of his juniors have even started constructing buildings on their DOHS plots; I believe everyone knows that the DOHS plots are simply precious and also lucrative not only to the defence officers but also to the rich civilians. If Col Shahid Khan Sir would pursue for this plot, possibly he could have got it even another five years before; actually he never runs for money, that’s why Allah has given his family a lot. When he lost his job, many told him to go abroad or to join the UN mission. His reply was simple, “No, I will not leave the country, I will die here.
j. There are people who make money through lobbyist or Dalali business during any govt; for that somebody has to continuously remain in the country. But Col Shahid Khan Sir is still living in the UK and it is for about more than four years. So, lobbyists or Dalals are to remain always in the country and around the govt’s office. He had to go to UK for his own studies and also for his daughter’s Bar-at-Law; because he does not want that his daughters should stay in the hostels for studies; they should be with their parents. He will come back to Bangladesh soon after the completion of their studies.
k. Col Shahid Khan Sir’s developer company named Prochhaya Limited is of about seven years old. Till today, I did not find any advertisement of this company for selling plots like others do by using only “Sign Boards”. He could have made huge money by cheating the people like most of the developers of the country do. As I have gone through his company’s document, he did only one business in 2008 and made huge profit through the land of 1. 5 acre in Mirpur and now he is struggling with the second one in Hatirjheel. Another thing I found in the document, that is Col Shahid Khan Sir is not the owner of the company, he is rather serving as the CEO and takes monthly salary; his wife i.e. our respected Shahid Bhabi is the owner, who was also one of the owners of her father’s Bandishahi Cold Storage Ltd. It confused me, because a man who did everything and also doing everything of the company still now, does not have anything in his ownership. Now, I understand that Col Shahid Khan Sir tries to practice true Islamic norms by heart and soul, not by outwardly show off and pseudo type Muslims like many of us.
l. Till 2011, hardly anyone of outside world knew about Col Shahid Khan Sir, but when he had to join Westmont Power (BD) ltd as CEO, he had kicked out few foreign and domestic mafia type persons from the company, right from then onward those guys started working against him in the medias. There are two main men behind all these, one Mr. Arif Neaz, a Muslim guy who has converted to Christianity, now known as Francis and the other is Mr. Finn, a Danish guy who is known to be one of those twelve Danish Cartoonists of Denmark and insulted our Prophet Hajrat Muhammad (PBUH). Both of them are the blackmailers in the Energy Sector of our country and there are many cases on money laundering, cheating, extortion etc against them in our courts, but they are so strong by foreign blessings that they are still untouched. Shahid Khan Sir did not care for all these; he just kicked them out, from then onward these culprits started writing against Shahid Khan Sir through fake online medias. Westmont power still could not stand up for these guys. These two guys along with Shoaib Chowdhury of online weekly ‘Blitz’ started writing all fabricated stories against Ex Col Shahid Khan Sir, but Sir did not pay any importance to those. However, Shoaib Chowdhury begged pardon from Retired Col Shahid Khan Sir and published a rejoinder in his weekly Blitz. Now, Shoaib Chowdhury is in jail for cheating of money with somebody named Mr. Sajjad. In fact, Shoaib Chowdhury, Francis, Finn etc are born and shameless culprits. I don’t know as to why Govt fails to fix up these mafias in due course of time.
m. Some of the senior Army officers are working against Col Shahid Khan Sir’s company. They tried to entangle Col Shahid Khan Sir with the case of Destiny 2000 Ltd; but ultimately they failed. I went to Dudok to know the fact. There I found that Dudok has taken a report/explanation from Col Shahid Khan Sir’s company; those documents clearly reveal that Destiny 2000 Ltd had purchased the land of Shahid Khan Sir’s company in Mirpur in 2008, there is nothing else. Col Shahid Khan Sir’s company rather incurred huge losses by selling the land to Destiny 2000 Ltd. We can now imagine how people can make so fabricated stories without knowing the truth. Honourable Prime Minister could not even stop the arrest of her the then beloved Army Chief General Haroon in connection with the case of Destiny 2000 Ltd. If our respected Col Shahid Khan Sir would be involved in anything adverse or unlawful acts with Destiny 2000 Ltd, he would have been also in jail like others. However, this is a smaller ground for taking Col Shahid Khan Sir to jail than the attempts taken by the then Jamat-BNP Govt to put Col Shahid Khan Sir in jail after repeated interference from the top levels, because he is a born honest personality and man of justice, which are proved through many major events of his life and we can also see the same in clear picture through the documents and the state of his dignity with huge prosperity because of Allah’s constant Rahmat on Col Shahid Khan Sir.
n. As I know, one of those senior Army officers is Major General Hasan Surwardy of Savar Cantonment, who is acting against Col Shahid Khan Sir, but for nothing. I also know that Col Shahid Khan Sir considers Major General Hasan Surwardy as an unfit and immoral military officer, which is also believed by most of the Army officers. We also know about his character and also his wife’s one. We all are waiting to see the end-state of the Drama, which has been designed by General Surwardy with the so-called 17 days’ survivor Reshma in consultation with two of the BNP top leaders. General Surwardy had convinced the Honourable Prime Minister to come and see Reshma physically instantly on that day and thereby put herself into a trap; possibly our all previous Honourable Prime Ministers in ages do not understand the tricks/games always played by this General Surwardy type people, therefore they are always put into traps like this way and as a result they lose people’s support just for nothing, even after having lots of credibility on their performances.
3. I was lucky enough to talk to Col Shahid Khan Sir just few days before over phone after a long month’s attempts. I just ask him to take legal actions in the courts of law against those, who are writing all these fabricated stories. I also told him some of the culprits’ names, like Barrister Munshi, Major (Retd) Sarwar, Francis, Shoaib and a few other retired ones, who live abroad. There is another retired Major, who is also working against Col Shahid Khan Sir clandestinely, whereas he is now serving under Col Shahid Khan Sir in his office; Sir has rescued this officer from his crisis and gave him the job; I do not know whether Col Shahid Khan Sir could identify this officer or not. Munshi, a branded bastard, who runs on others’ money; he was the chamcha of General Amin (Bihari Amin) during 1/11 and made huge money through Bihari Amin, now he is the chamcha of Jamat-BNP. Most likely Munshi is a fake Barrister and there are many bogus Barristers like him in our country, which must be addressed and brought to justice. Major (Retd) Sarwar, now Barrister Sarwar is the most awful officer that the Bangladesh Army has ever produced. He divorced his first wife for not getting dowry from her. He then married another girl, who is the daughter of a most corrupted Union Chairman of a village in Jhalokathi District. Major Sarwar took huge money from this new father-in-law and went to London for Bar-at-law. He was caught for corruption while in the Army and the documents of which are still available. But he held the legs of his Boss and got retirement instantly during Jamat-BNP Govt; now he is the active politician in BNP. This is how the corrupted people can escape trial and most of the people like him are the politicians in our country now. If they get money from Col Shahid Khan Sir, they will start writing in his favour, as I believe. One of them commented that Col Shahid Khan Sir is doing Dalali now. If Col Shahid Khan Sir could become Dalal type, then he would not have lost his job by arresting General Jahangir’s smuggler brother, Minister’s nephew, hundreds of smuggles etc and he would not have seized the smuggled goods of about one hundred (100) Crore in only less than eight months time. He rather could have established good links with those corrupted Generals, Ministers and make huge money and also he could have become General by now. He did not do so. He rather believes that discharging duties sincerely and honestly is the honest way of loving the country and this is how somebody can become freedom fighter during peacetime. I told Sir to do something against those culprits.
Col Shahid Khan Sir replied, “Listen Bhuyan, why to read their mails, it’s better to avoid. Because they will carry on backbiting and you will find that they will never go up, because Allah hates backbiters. When you are having Allah’s Rahmat, you should continue to go forward. If you look back, you will fall and join these backbiting groups. Remember, the man who always practices unethical acts and always has been the corrupted one, they will always consider others in their same footing, they will never think that others could be honest. To them all are corrupted like they are. They also do not know how to earn honestly and they also do not take pains to receive Allah’s Rahmat. So, do your job honestly and don’t pay any attention to these people’s silly acts. If I now entangle with their media hypes, these mean-minded people will get lift, which they desire from us. So, forget it, Allah is already taking care of them and they will continue to suffer, not we”.
I again asked him, “Sir, I have seen your foundation’s website; you are spending thousands and lacs of money through your charity programmes both at home and abroad, but nobody sees all your these noble acts in the public medias. It is found that people spend only few Takas for charity and exposing it with big highlights in the medias. Sir, they must know what you are doing. Col Shahid Khan Sir replied, “ Listen, Islam does not permit the person to expose his identity for his charity programmes; the price of the charity will be paid back by Allah. So, why others to know, what gains I need from them. In fact, the bad politicians and illegal gainers require this type of gains. Buddy, remember one point, you may escape the eyes of the Law of the Land or the people after committing sins, but you cannot deceive the Supreme Eyes; nothing goes unpaid. People of immoralities could never escape during their lifetime and they shall also face severer punishment in Hashor; someone or his/her children or spouse have to expiate for their committed sins. Sometimes, we see somebody is severely suffering, who is known to be innocent; but he knows the reasons for his sufferings. He might have escaped the eyes of the Laws, but the Supreme Eyes were always unavoidable, which possibly he did not believe while committing sins.
I could not tell anything else in response to Col Shahid Khan Sir’s comments. So, we understand as to where our respected Col Shahid Khan Sir stands. We must explore the people like Col Shahid Khan Sir in the society to bring them to the forefront to rescue our bygone values, ethics, dignity etc. I salute Col Shahid Khan Sir and he is also my Role Model; I am trying to spare sometime to write a book on our respected Col Shahid Khan Sir. May Allah Bless him with more and more honour and dignity. Please contact me if anyone has got anything to query. Thanks.
