Early life[edit]

Born on 5 June 1957 in the Kidderpore area of South Kolkata to Azizul Haque, an employee of Kolkata Port, and Ladly Haque, Salim was one of nine siblings. Their family could barely make ends meet and survival was a struggle, perhaps that is what instilled mental toughness and calmness in front of adversity, in Salim’s character. From his childhood days, Salim was a studious boy, though he excelled in playing football and himself was an avid football fan. He did his schooling from St. Barnabas High School, Calcutta. Due to financial constraints, he would tutor his juniors or classmates to pay for his school fees and tiffin expenses. From his schooldays he came in contact with the communist ideology that he would be identified with in the future. After finishing his schooling he decided that he would study Humanities, so he decided to spend some time away from home during the time science stream forms were distributed. During this time, he was saved from drowning in a village in Uluberia by a woman, with whose family he still maintains contact. He joined the prestigious Maulana Azad College to studyphilosophy. During his college days, he became a part of the contemporary student’s movement in West Bengal and became an active member of the Students’ Federation of India. He was elected General Secretary of the student’s union of his college immediately after re-imposition of democracy post the Indian Emergency. He has claimed that the Emergency was the most influential event in his life, which made him opt for politics. After passing out from Maulana Azad College he enrolled in Jadavpur University to obtain his Masters in Philosophy. During his days of student activism in Jadavpur, he met up with his future colleagues at CPI(M) Nilotpal Basu and Manab Mukherjee.
