Late Public Administration Minister and former Secretary General of Awami League Syed Ashraful Islam's daughter Syeda Reema Islam alias Reema Ashraf is coming back to Bangladesh from London permanently.

Reliable sources from Awami League have conveyed this information. Reportedly Reema Ashraf is most likely to contest in the by-election from the constituency in Kishoreganj which has become vacant due to Syed Ashraful Islam's death.
Reema Ashraf is at present in an aggrieved mental state losing both  her parents. Her mother Sheila Islam died on 23rd October 2017 while her father Syed Ashraful Islam passed away on 3rd January 2019.

However, Reema Ashraf has seen how much the people from all walks of life in Bangladesh love Syed Ashraful Islam. Syed Ashraful Islam was a veteran and devoted Awami League leader and a competent minister with a thoroughly clean image. For this reason Bangladesh's people were profoundly shocked when Syed Ashraful Islam died around one week ago. Sources from Reema Ashraf's family have informed that she is preparing to come back to Bangladesh very shortly.

Reema Ashraf was born and brought up in London. She accomplished Master of Business Administration (MBA) in London. She has been working for Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) in London as a senior officer for several years.

Reema Ashraf knows about the immense popularity of her father in the political arena of Bangladesh. She was overwhelmed to see the participation of lakhs of people in the Namaj-E-Janaza of her father at Sholakia in Kishoreganj and the attendance of a massive crowd on the parliament premises where another Namaj-E-Janaza was held.

Thus Syed Ashraful Islam's death deeply saddened Reema Ashraf while it at the same time made her proud to see how the entire country broke into tears over her father's death. Reema Ashraf has meanwhile gone to Bangkok wherefrom she is supposed to fly back to London and get ready to return to Bangladesh very soon.

Syed Ashraful Islam's cousin Syed Tarequl Islam Victor said that Reema Ashraf is expected to complete the required formalities to leave her job in London before long to come back home.

Family members and people associated with Reema Ashraf have stated that she is polite and diligent like her father. Lots of people have in the meantime posted comments on social networks expressing hope to see Reema Ashraf on the political turf of Bangladesh upholding the integrity and patriotism of Syed Ashraful Islam. Some people have even called upon Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to enable Reema Ashraf to officially join Bangladesh's politics.

Former student leader Jahangir Alam has said that Reema Ashraf certainly can become a capable successor to Syed Ashraful Islam in Kishoreganj. Some more political leaders have also remarked that Reema Ashraf possesses the quality to become an uncompromising political figure like Syed Ashraful Islam.
