PM Modi: Appeal for Educational Scholarship for Bangladeshi Minority Students

Religious minorities and indigenous peoples ("khudro nrigosthi", as they are called in Bangladesh) are the most discriminated, disadvantaged, marginalized and persecuted communities in Bangladesh. Students from these communities severely suffer from lack of financial resources and skills which are essential for their self as well as community empowerment and development. These communities have no ability to send their children to higher educational institutions. It plunges them into a vicious cycle of illiteracy, poverty, malnutrition, underdevelopment, sub-human condition and human suffering.

India is a regional and responsible economic power with world class educational institutions. It provides scholarship to many students from developing countries through ICCR. Students belonging to religious minorities and indigenous peoples of Bangladesh will greatly be benefited and grateful if India provides scholarship to them on priority basis. It will help them and their communities improve their appalling situation.

We, therefore, urge the Government of India, especially Honorable Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi-ji, to kindly consider providing scholarship to students belonging to religious minorities and indigenous peoples of Bangladesh on priority basis for their education in Indian higher educational institutions. We believe it will help them realize the motto of the Modi Government -- "Sab Ka Sath, Sab Ka Vikas" -- in their home-country as well. We hope India will be humane and incredible in this case also.

With regards,
