Bangladeshi community grieves as Nadia died in accident in Toronto

TORONTO – The 17-year-old 12 grade student from Bangladeshi community in Toronto, Nadia Mozumder, who struck by a minivan nearby her school, Birchmount Park Collegiate Institute while crossing the intersection of Birchmount and Danforth, died on the way to hospital last Tuesday. 

Her father Azizul Mozumder tearfully told reporters “I lost my everything” at the Islamic Research Centre Canada, where his daughter’s funeral prayers took place on Thursday afternoon.

He further added that “I loved my daughter so much. I’m going to miss her for the rest of my life. I need justice for my daughter, so that no parents lose their child the way I did”.

A family friend said, “Nadia was born in Hamilton in Ontario and she was wise beyond her years and had only recently spent two weeks at her grandmother’s home where she talked about her dreams for the future for becoming a nurse. Also, her peers described that, “She was always cheerful; a community volunteer with lots of big dreams and hopes to support her community.”

As mourners buried Nadia on the same day at Richmond Hill Muslim Cemetery, they all felt her deeply in their hearts.
