Brutal killing of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and almost all his family members on 15 Aug 1975 represents Bangladesh’s darkest chapter. This was followed by killing of our four National Leaders in jail custody and shocking rehabilitation of killers. #NationalMourningDay
Privileged to plant this Tree of Peace & Unity on behalf of @UN Member States seven years back in 2015 at UNHQ to commemorate 70th Anniversary of end of 2nd World War. It’s growing well, looks healthy - wish peace, unity were thriving too. @IPUparliament
Good to interact and exchange views, share perspectives on energy mix and way forward for this important sector. Ensuring good governance, transparency and exercising robust oversight represents a win win for all.
Privileged to welcome and address 7th Batch of students for MBBS course at Mugda Medical College. This year 75 meritorious students from all over #Bangladesh with GPA of 4.5 plus have joined the college which started its journey in January 2016.
Deeply saddened @ passing of Deputy Speaker Bangladesh Parliament Advocate Md Fazle Rabbi Miah (while undergoing treatment in New York). Condolences to his family. A veteran parliamentarian, he will be much missed. May Allah grant his soul eternal peace. @IPUparliament
Watch this because this is history in the making in Sri Lanka!
A history of ousting bad leaders
A history of leaderless protest
A history of nonviolent protest
A history of perseverance
A history of people power

Horrified at assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinjo Abe, a towering global figure of our times and a friend of Bangladesh 🇧🇩. As the world mourns his death, our thoughts are with his family, friends and the people of Japan 🇯🇵.
On the first day of the training, the participants had the honour to meet @AKAbdulMomen and @saberhc at the @FSA_Bangladesh which is housed in the historic building where Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had his first office as Prime Minister of Bangladesh.
Always had a high regard for Dr. Selina Hayat Ivy, popular & dynamic Mayor of Narayanganj City Corp - deeply passionate about environment and public health. Look forward to working with her on “Green Narayanganj 2025” campaign and hopefully this can be a model for #Bangladesh.
Good to meet Hon. Agni Prasad Saptoka @speaker_nepal and Nepal Delegation to Baku Conference on Non Aligned Movement Parliamentary Network. With #ClimateChange global-warming accelerating glacial melt, how long before snow capped peaks of #Himalayas disappear?
Parliaments should not simply be mouthpieces of their respective Governments. Our accountability is to our citizens who have elected us. Our responsibility is to enforce #RuleOfLaw at national, regional and global levels.” #WorldParliamentDay@IPUparliament
'It is our responsibility to do more when it comes to building strong, inclusive + accountable #parliaments. Without #MPs committed to carrying out their constitutional mandates, our societies cannot deliver on the needs and expectations of citizens'

“We have been losing our entire life” says person who has been at the helm for over half of our Test cricket life. No shame, guilt .. only excuses. We won our 1st Test within 5 years of Test Status and now under him #Bangladesh races to 100 defeats. 😞 thedailystar.net/sports/cric…
