He was very well known in the Bangladeshi community. He was the mosque chairperson and was always involved with all activities and events.

“Abdul had his own business which he ran for more than 40 years in Cardiff. Both his current and previous employees, customers have expressed their shock and said what an easy going person he was.”

Abdul’s only child Luma, who works as a teacher, said: “Dad was an extremely kind, generous and helpful person who always had a smile on his face. To lose him in such tragic circumstances has come as a massive shock to the family.

He will be immensely missed. The emptiness will never be filled. Thank you dad for everything. Miss you so much.”
