  26. Iftekhar Hassan Says:

    While it is good to note appointment of his excellency Mr. Khawja Alqama as Pakistan’s H.C to Bangladesh.

    This being said, it is also sad to see the present government of Bangladesh holding him out and not clearing him due to some ancient political differences with his father for organizing peace committee during 1971 war that led to the creation of Bangladesh.

    I wish and pray Hasina administration follow the rules of diplomacy with wisdom and accept nominated his excellency Khawja Alqama with open arm.
