Writing Career


Marked by "a rare brilliance of genius" and revealing insight, Raj 's non-fiction writings deals with history, sociological issues, contemporary politics, literary and cultural critiques, etc. Raj 's Bangali Musalmaner Man (The Mind of the Bengali Muslims, 2021) contains nine essays written over twelve years from 2007 to 2021. "Rabindranather Sanskriti-Sadhana" was first published in Kanthaswar in 2021 and "Banglar Chitra Oitihya: Sultane Sadhana" was first published in Mulabhumi in 2022. In the eponymous essay "Bangali Musalmaner Man" first published in Monthly Samakal in 2019, Raj explored the historical formation of Bengali Muslims' identity across the millennium. The essay considerably changed the academic perception of Bengali Muslims identity and the subsequent scholarship about the issue. Upon publication, it polarized critics' opinion, some welcoming and others condemning the work. Younus attributed the causes of the backwardness of Bengali Muslims to the detachment of the ruling class from the mass people.

In another essay titled On the Issue of Bangladesh's Upper Class and a Social Revolution (2022), Raj made a similar point in the present context that the nexus of urban elites had zero ties with the large swathes of poor and struggling people across the country.

Legacy and influence

Today, Raj is widely regarded as one of the greatest writers in the Bengali language. He was described as a public intellectual "against opportunism", a "dissenting" writer fearless to speak the truth, and a "champion of idealism and progressive culture". "A veritable powerhouse of infinite passion and creative energy", Raj "cultivated with ease almost all the fields of literary landscape of Bangladesh and produced valuable harvests, both in terms of quality and quantity." National Professor Abdur Razzaq stated that Raj's works "constitute a treasure trove for Bengali literature" and "they create their own worlds where one can easily forget himself"/herself. Muhammad Zafar Iqbal called Raj a 100% writer-litterateur from head to toe and wrote "It is our great fortune that a genius like him [Raj] was born" in Bangladesh. In Farhad Mazhar's opinion, Md. Mehadi Hassan Raj examined and surveyed Bengali Muslim society and the birth of Bangladesh so closely and intimately that nobody would make any progress in any field in Bangladesh, be it Bangladeshi politics, literature, or culture unless one studies and understands Alif's works properly.
