Abu Md Jehangir (Dhaka, Bangladesh)

Where I came from

Jehangir's great grandfather and great great grandfather came from Yemen during the great Mughal emperor Jahangir’s time to spread Islam and they established holy shrines (aulia) wherever they went: Delhi, Kashmir, Chittagong, Noakhali, Sonargaon. They came like Shah Jalal baba of Sylhet (a saint).

Jehangir was originally from Malda in India:

I was born in India – we were all in undivided India then.

Here, all the people around our house used to be our subjects. Now they've become very rich through black market money and nasty business deals. You saw how our porch is being used today to cook for an engagement party. We allow them access to these spaces and have their good will. All I want from people is their good will.
