About Me

Shamsuddin Illius is a print media journalist. He has been working in the field of journalism (full time) since 2010. He is very much passionate about journalism since his early age. He is one of the fellows of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) Journalism Fellowship Scheme 2018.
He has been working as the In-charge of Chittagong bureau of The Independent, one of the leading English national dailies published from Dhaka in Bangladesh.
He has covered so many issues relating to crime, business, refugee, migration, human trafficking and human rights abuse so far. Many of his articles on refugee, migration and human rights got huge coverage and stirred up the readers of the country.
He has been covering the Rohingya refugee crisis since 2016 for The Independent and witnessed the Rohingya refugees fleeing from persecution in Myanmar crossing the treacherous Naf River for finding safe shelter in Bangladesh.
Now, he is covering the news on Business in Chittagong and Rohingya refugees’ journey to Bangladesh and their shelter, food, education, healthcare, trafficking and refugee management.
One of his reports titled, Cops ‘label’ teenage boy as sister’s violator’ ensured justice for a poor family. The report was treated as First Information Report (FIR) by the High Court of Bangladesh following a writ petition by a Supreme Court lawyer.
Reporting is a tremendously challenging and daunting task in many respects. He, however, always look for challenging tasks, so he decided to move forward.
As journalist at the end of day, there is a feeling of fulfillment when he can make a little change in the life of vulnerable people, bring changes in the society and hold the powerful into accountable by his write-ups.
