    Ezjar Bhai,
    I am not clear here on your view.

    I quoted this news form the Weekly Thikana -the largest circulated Bengali newspaper with over 4,000 subscriber in the USA.
    From journalistic point of view, this event meets all the criteria to qualify to be written in this blog.

    As far as other DNF members donations for Sidr is concerned, unfortunately I do not have the names of the other DNF donors or the figure of their donated amount (if there were any).

    Allah granted Mizan Bhai this respectable position to represent the community and may Allah accept his time spent on other social work.
    Thanks Anas
