Our lone Nobel laureate and global anti-poverty campaigner Prof. Yunus has recently been made the chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland. This is perhaps for the first time a Bangladeshi has become the chancellor of a university in a foreign country.
Actually, Prof Yunus' dedication to alleviating poverty through micro-lending and his innovative concept of social business have made him one of the most honoured personalities of the present day world.
But it is a matter of great regret that such a globally-renowned iconic figure is being humiliated and belittled by the leaders of the ruling political party in his own country! While Prof. Yunus is being praised and honoured for his pioneering achievement in different foreign countries, the Bangladesh government is hell-bent on discrediting him!
What a shame! Such vindictive attitude towards a man who has immensely raised the image of the nation in the world is totally unacceptable and of course, disgusting. Will our government mend its ways and give Prof Yunus and his Grameen Bank their due?
