A plot of land
Musa Ibrahim is a victim of gross injustice. Musa brought immense honour to Bangladesh by becoming the first Bangladeshi to scale Mount Everest. A remarkable achievement for any person, but for a man from a country that doesn't have snow, ice, or mountains on which he could practice, it's simply phenomenal. He risked his life to accomplish his dreams and bring honour and glory to Bangladesh.
Musa's exceptional achievement was rightly recognised and praised by Sir Frank Peters who branded him “a national and world hero”, and campaigned to have a postage stamp issued in his honour for the world to see and respect. We are hoping and wishing success for Sir Frank Peters' campaign.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina honoured the young hero by welcoming him home with a bouquet of flowers. But then, when the Bangladesh cricket team scored the historic win over New Zealand, the PM not only presented them with bouquets but also a plot of land to each. Doesn't Musa Ibrahim deserve a plot of land as a reward?
With due respect to the cricket team I would like to say- cricket heroes will come and go, but unique achievers like Musa Ibrahim will be rare.
