Why do people call RP Saha ‘The Great Philanthropist or Danbir’?
Bangabandhu called him 'Dada'
The court said his nobility started flourishing when he got engaged in continuing social activities around the localities under Mirzapur, Tangail. Pioneering deeds for developing education and health of people gradually placed him as an icon in the world of humanity, irrespective of race and religion.
“Danabir [philanthropist] RP Saha thus belonged to mankind, civilisation, not only to any particular religion or race. He was an incomparable architect of creating and mounting the school of humanity meant to respond to the need necessary for a developed society, by his immense and continuing noble deeds. RP Saha was not a mere human being,” the court said.
