I have to disagree. I'm always for giving as much individual freedom to the people. No one should have to call him Bijoy, if they don't feel like it. Anamul and Bijoy are both fine as they are his names given to him by his parents. If you want to coin a new cool nickname, like Run-amul, you should be allowed to do that as well. But if Anamul himself has a particular preference,( which I doubt he does), then I think it's polite to oblige his wishes.
His excellency, Shere Bangla, descendent of Tipu Sultan, the Uniter of the Two Bengals, the Wily Bengali, the prince of all things cool, I present you Roey Haque the 1st.
