Abdul Gaffar Chowdhury, a political analyst, was born on December 12, 1934, in Ulania village, Mehendiganj, Barishal. He was the son of Zohra Khatun and Hazi Wahed Reza Choudhury, a British Indian freedom fighter.

He received his bachelor’s degree from Dhaka University in 1959 and moved to England on October 5, 1974.

Among his many honors are the Bangla Academy Literary Award in 1967, the Ekushey Padak, the UNESCO Literary Award, the Bangabandhu Award, the Sanghati Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008, and the Sadhinota Padak in 2009.
