What a con job, right? He fooled the entire world, but couldn't fool the bangladeshi people (sarcastic comment).
Congrats Dr Y!

Her Esteemed Highness Hasina and her coterie must be burning up in jealousy. Wait for another court case to be initiated against Dr Yunus.

I can think of four in addition to Dr Yunus.

Norman Borlaug
Nelson Mandela
Aung San Suu Kyi
Elie Wiesel

Can't think of the other two.

In any event, a very rare honor. A very good company to keep.

I wish it was just Hasina, because I encountered a lot of regular people who fell for Hasina's propaganda.


Correction: He is the 7th person to receive this joint honor. The original DS article had a typo. Thanks Mav.

The achievement places him in the company of Norman Borlaug, Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Elie Wiesel, Aung San Suu Kyi and Mother Teresa — personalities who have received the two medals from the US as well as the Nobel Peace Prize.

Sure there are definitely many blind followers of Hasina, who refuse to use their education or common sense. Aren't we seeing that in many recent political events as well. Put them all together and call it Hasina.

We are capable of finding problems with prophets, these are even more normal human beings with more errors. So, it's easy to find a hole if you want to. Question is, should we explore those human errors to demean a great achievement of this magnitude?

Blind followers decide to follow Hasina, what can u do about it. Unfortunate.

When a Real visionary, true patriot talks you listen carefully. You work hard to make his visions, give his ideas a reality. True visionary will always give you hope, will show you the way to light when you are lost into dark. Bangladesh is proud to have you Dr. MUHAMMAD YUNUS. A sad story is we are not fully recognizing and using your full potential.

That was one of the most thoughtful write ups on the tragedy. It also gives us an action plan as to what needs to be done. Something that hasn't come from the government other than passing blame or diminishing the tragedy (Maal, KMA, SH to name a few)

‘ক্ষুদ্রঋণের কিস্তি শোধে অঙ্গ বিক্রি’



ক্ষুদ্রঋণের কিস্তি শোধ করতে বাংলাদেশের গরিব মানুষ নিজের অঙ্গ বিক্রি করছে বলে বিবিসির এক অনুসন্ধানে বেরিয়ে এসেছে।

সোমবার বিবিসির অনলাইনে প্রকাশিত এক প্রতিবেদনে বলা হয়েছে, ঋণের টাকা পরিশোধ করতে বাংলাদেশের অনেক গরিব মানুষ নিজেদের অঙ্গ বিক্রি করছে।
ঋণদাতা প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলো মাত্রাতিরিক্ত সুদ নেয় বলেও ওই প্রতিবেদনে বলা হয়।
“দারিদ্র্য দূর করার একটি পদক্ষেপের অংশ হিসেবে অগণিত মানুষ ক্ষুদ্রঋণ দাতাদের ঋণের জালে জড়িয়ে পড়ছে। এরপর তারা এমন একটি অবস্থায় পড়ছে যেখানে তারা ঋণের অর্থ শোধ করতে অপারগ,” বলা হয়েছে সোফি কাজিনের প্রতিবেদনে।
“ঋণ শোধের সর্বশেষ অবলম্বন হিসেবে অনেকে নিজের অঙ্গ বিক্রি করেছেন এবং বেরিয়ে এসেছেন দারিদ্র্যের কষাঘাত থেকে।”
প্রতিবেদনে এ বিষয়টির ওপর গুরুত্ব দেয়া হয় যে, “এই ঋণ দাতা প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলো প্রকৃত অর্থে গড়ে উঠেছে ক্ষুদ্রঋণ প্রদানের মাধ্যমে সেই সব মানুষকে দারিদ্র্য থেকে বের করে আনতে, যাদের বিদ্যমান ব্যাংক ব্যবস্থা থেকে ঋণ নেয়ার সামর্থ্য নেই। এগুলো গড়ে উঠেছে নারী উদ্যোক্তা তৈরি ও নারীর ক্ষমতায়নের লক্ষ্যে।”
ঋণের অর্থ সংগ্রহের পদ্ধতি এবং ঋণগ্রহীতারা একাধিক প্রতিষ্ঠান থেকে ঋণ নিয়েছেন কি না, সে বিষয়ে প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলোর যথাযথ যাচাই-বাছাই না করার বিষয়টিও উঠে এসেছে বিবিসির প্রতিবেদনে।

This is actually based on a BBC article:

The Bangladesh poor selling organs to pay debts
28 October 2013
Sophie Cousins, BBC


"Kalai, like many other villages in Bangladesh, appears a rural idyll at first sight. But several villagers here have resorted to selling organs to pay back microcredit loans that were meant to lift them out of poverty. Journalist Sophie Cousins reports on an alarming consequence of the microfinance revolution."

^^ I was not doubting the source of the article actually but rather the attempt to link Dr. Younus to what seems like a case of mismanagement by NGOs and a ring of organ traders that are exploiting the situation.
