We Will Miss MT Khan’s Affable, Reticent Presence Immensely

The Human Rights Forum (HRF) deeply condoles the death of civil rights activist MT Khan. Khan Saab, as he was affectionately addressed by friends, passed away at Hyderabad today, September 20, 2014.

A poet, journalist and writer, Khan Saab was actively associated with the human rights movement for several decades. He was close to all democratic, secular and progressive movements. As part of a human rights fact-finding exercise, he had, along with the late K Balagopal, also visited Jammu and Kashmir in the mid-1990s and subsequently spoke out against the Indian government’s repressive measures in that State.

For many of us in the HRF, he was a dear friend. We shall miss his affable, reticent presence immensely.
