Film activist Khasru dies

Muhammad Khasru, the pioneer of film society development in Bangladesh, kicked the bucket at a city medical clinic yesterday. He was 70.

"He has been experiencing pneumonia, breathing issues, diabetes and asthma for quite a while," Anjan Jahidur Rahim, leader of Bangladesh Short Film Forum, told UNB.

Khasru had been living alone in Mohanpur town of Rohingpur. He was conveyed to Dhaka a month ago after his wellbeing crumbled and was admitted to Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital.

His body will be kept at the Teacher-Student Center of Dhaka University today from 11:00pm. His namaz-e-janaza will be held at the college's focal mosque after Zohr supplications.

He will be let go in Mohanpur town.

Khasru was famous for his editorship of the "Drupodi" magazine and had been included with the film business for over five decades.

His endeavors prompted the development of the Film Studies Center under the supervision of the Bangladesh Film Society Association. He drove the development which built up Bangladesh Film Federation of Film Societies and the National Film Archive.

He was regarded with a lifetime accomplishment grant of Dhaka University Film Society in 2017.
