Dr. Mizanur Rahman, Vice-Chancellor of Jagannath University, is a well-known successful educator in the country and abroad with his wonderful combination of faith, labor, talent and effort. In response to various questions from journalists, he said at different times that teaching is a habitual addiction for those who consider teaching a great profession. He considers teachers to be the real craftsmen of building people. He always thinks that teachers are above morality, selflessness, greed and lust, honesty is always important. He thinks that those who can’t afford it should stay away from this great profession.
With the help of talk shows, Dr. Mizanur Rahman is a very well known name. At different times, he said, “There are many good, talented and honest people in our society. They work for the welfare of the country and the people through their own efforts. They also work tirelessly for the overall welfare of others. Their minds, thoughts and consciousness are always aimed at the overall sustainable development of people.” They spend their whole lives in the midst of human beings. We think of them as enlightened human beings. It would be wrong to say that there are more enlightened people in the society. There are only a handful of people – Dr. Mizan thinks that many people keep themselves behind the scenes because of their narrow mindedness.
Professor. Mizanur Rahman has been a staunch follower of the ideology of Bangabandhu, the greatest father of the Bengali nation since his student days. He loves to speak openly. However, since he was appointed VC of Jagannath University, he has been adamant in his ideology.
