May GOD rest his soul in peace. A great friend to Bangladesh in our hour of need, he will never be forgotten. The fact that his family is of Bangladeshi origin, like that of his great mentor's, makes this all the more painful for me.
I've never been a huge fan of his music, always preferring Nikhil Banerjee's (RIP) approach, but love what his daughters are doing. My heart goes out to his family and friends everywhere.
"O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant." (49:13)
