Here are some comments that came in response to Sunday's The Daily Star report headlined “Khaleda, Blake shares same view”
A dignified issue might be solved in a dignified manner. Kindly uphold the dignity of law of the land and image of the highest court in the country. We can request Mr Blake, the GOB and Dr Yunus to uphold the dignity of a nation through an amicable settlement of Grameen and Dr Yunus's issues. Thanks to the foreign TV network to put us in such a political impasse. Please speak again.
The attitude of our PM towards Prof Yunus the lone noble prize winner in our history is really deplorable and sad for all of us. We find no word to condemn her vindictive attitude. She seems to regard him as a political rival and treating him in the similar way of treating the BNP leader. What a menace! It is totally unbecoming of an elected PM Now US assistant secretary of state had to come in person to stop her from abusing her position to relish her sadist mind.

As I read the various newspapers of Bangladesh, I get the feeling there will be a show-down between Friends of Grameen and Friends of Bangladesh. If Friends of Bangladesh wants to fight out foreign aggression, it should try to make Bangladesh self-sufficient and fully independent. If you keep a door open for aids and loans, that door may remain open for other matters also.
I think government should co-operate with Prof Yunus. He is our pride.
We also support this. We hope the issue involving Prof Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank would be resolved amicably.

The question of Dr Yunus and Grameen Bank has become an issue of whole world vs. Bangladesh. While the whole world is supporting Dr Yunus only the Bangladesh government is against him. This war will have negative effects on the employees, the borrowers, the microfinance and the Bangladesh economy as a whole.
In the wake of the visit of Blake, all justification put forward by the Govt. about the removal of Dr Yunus will be swept away. Can the government turn away from what Blake will say? Now, the nation will expect another press conference by foreign minister Dipu Moni swallowing all the words said before about the Noble laureate. The nation will be happy, nonetheless. It understands that it was uncalled for, after all, raising the dust over the issue.
