From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Farrukh Ahmed (Bengali: ফররুখ আহমেদ) (1918 – 1974) was a poet and writer of Bangladesh. He was born in the village of Sreepur Upazilla of Magura District. He graduated from Khulna Zila School in 1937 and did his IA from Ripon College, Kolkata in 1939. Then enrolled at the prestigious Scottish Church College to study BA (Hons) in Philosophy and English Literature, but was unable to his complete studies.

As a student, Farrukh Ahmed had been attracted to the radical humanism of Manabendra Nath Roy and had participated in leftist politics. From the forties, however, he supported the Pakistan movement. Despite his Pakistani and Islamic ideals, he supported the Language Movement in 1952 and, later, the liberation war of Bangladesh.
