Kurigram, Bangladesh – June 19 2012 (UNB) – The body of an elderly Imam was found fresh in a river erosion-ravaged grave on Monday, three decades after his burial at Charsitaijhar village at Mogalbasa union in Sadar upazila.
The deceased, Ghughu Munshi alias Basar Uddin Munshi, was the imam (religious leader) of a local mosque. He died of old age complications 32 years ago and was buried at the family graveyard on the compound of his Charsitaijhar village home in the vicinity of the Dharala River in 1980.
Late Ghughu Munsh’s son Hajrat Ali, 60, told UNB that their house along with his father’s grave went into the gorge of the river during an erosion in 2004 and the body of his father was found fresh in the destroyed graveyard.
Hazrat with the help of his neighbours recovered the body and reburied it at neighbouring Krishnapur Eidgah Maidan (field).
Eight years after the incident, Dharala has turned turbulent again devouring several hundred acres of land on its both banks. On Monday, the river engulfed Krishnapur Eidgah, including the spot where Ghughu was reburied in 2004 with part of his grave going into the river this time around.
Though incredible it may sound but it is true that the body of Ghughu Munshi has been found fresh in his grave by his son, relatives and the villagers three decades after his death.
As the news spread around, hundreds of people from the village, neighbouring unions and far-flung areas of the upazila have been coming to Charsitaijhar since Monday late afternoon to see the body of the former Imam.
His body was buried again on the premises of Fazlul Karim Rahmatia Madrasah after a namaz-e-janaza in the evening.
