I have been living outside Bangladesh for decades. Every time I visit my beloved country, I buy gift items from Grameen Check that Muhammad Yunus helped establish. I engage in chats with Grameen Check employees. Like others, they are also effusive in their praise and admiration for the renowned entrepreneur and regard him as a father-like figure. Needless to say, through Grameen Check and other entrepreneurial initiatives, he created employment for thousands of people, especially in rural Bangladesh. Sadly, while the whole world ‘approved’ him, this great hero has been mistreated in his own country. Though it was too late, Rustam eventually came to his senses and regretted what he did to his own son. I wonder when or if Bangladesh will ever realise what it did to its Sohrab.
