Exposing the most serious human rights violations in Bangladesh through a nationwide network of defenders

Biography

ADILUR RAHMAN KHAN is one of Bangladesh’s most devoted human rights defenders. In his decades of activism, he has established a nationwide network of rights defenders and leads Odhikar, the country’s premier human rights organization. Odhikar monitors an extraordinary array of human rights violations, including restrictions on freedom of expression; abuse by security forces; enforced disappearances; extrajudicial and border killings; torture; violence against women; and voter suppression. Odhikar staff face significant pressure from the government and Mr. Rahma Khan has received numerous death threats. He has also served time in prison and currently faces trial on trumped-up charges of “fabricating information” and “damaging the image of the state.” An attorney, Mr. Rahman Khan holds degrees in law from Dhaka University in Bangladesh and Vrije Universitiet in Belgium.
