A United Community Is Needed for Bangladeshis in Malaysia: High Commissioner
The out going High Commissioner of Bangladesh to Malaysia, Mr. Shahidul Islam said that there is no alternative to a strong and united community while leaving abroad. He added, it is not effective and united, therefore it has not become so helpful for all immigrants and Bangladeshis who live in Malaysia. Bangladesh Community Press Club’s journalists and its leaders met the out going High Commissioner of Bangladesh, Shahidul Islam on Thursday.
During the meeting, he also acclaimed Bangladeshi journalist who cover news in Malaysia. He expresses his words emotionally: “journalists write about the happiness, sorrow, laughter and tears, advantages and disadvantages of the expatriates in the midst of their busy schedule. Expatriate journalists are the mouthpieces of expatriates.”
Senior Vice President (of Bangladesh Community Press Club) Aminul Islam Ratan, RTV Correspondent Mostafa Imran Raju, General Secretary NTV Correspondent Kaysar Hamid Hannan and Member Bappi Kumar were present during the meeting. It was a friendly meeting where leaders of the Community Press Club responded to the courtesy call of the High Commissioner and met him at the Bangladesh House, which is the High Commissioner's residence in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In the courtesy call, the outgoing High Commissioner recalled nearly six-long-years of his service and said that he had a very good time in Malaysia. The community here has collaborated in every task. He also commented that these expatriates will be remembered forever.
He has also said that he has tried to bring the stranded expatriates and legalize those who are in detention camps.
