Late AKM Fazlul Haque Majumder
Our founding father, Late AKM Fazlul Haque Majumder Majumder was born on September 1, 1926, in Betiapara village, Balakhal, Comilla District. He was the eldest son of Al Haj Kashem Ali Majumder, a school teacher. Despite achieving first division in Matriculation under Calcutta University in 1944, his academic pursuits had been interrupted when he actively became involved with the Indian Independence movement during his college days and joined the Azad Hind Fouj under Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. Following the partition of India in 1947, Mr. Majumder joined the then Muslim Commercial Bank (now Rupali Bank) and after a few years switched career and joined the then IGNRSN (now BITWC), the inland multi national company where he served with distinction until 1964. That very year Mr. Majumder decided to venture into something he can call his own and founded his own business Majumder Jute Baling. The company was trading exceptionally well and eventually became one of the top exporters of the nation. Mr. Majumder enjoyed spending his leisure time at the chess board, playing Billiards at Narayanganj Club and fishing in remote areas. He was a Billiard champion himself, General Secretary of the Narayanganj Club in the early seventies and also a founder member of the Bangladesh Billiards and Snooker Federation. During his lifetime he established several Madrashas and Schools and donated generously. Our founding father's legacy of initiatives and dedication is a strong source of our inspiration for all that we have achieved with Majumder till now. We pray that he rests in peace in the eternal world.
