U.S. Congress: Please Don't Make Any Policy Against Bangladeshi-American

I join the Bangladeshi-American community in condemning terrorism against the United States of America, and request members of Congress not to make any policy changes against Bangladeshis living in the United States or in Bangladesh.

More than 100,000 people of Bangladeshi origin live in the United States. Most abide by the laws of this great nation and live peacefully. Most are committed to a safe and prosperous America. They come to the United States to seek a better life and to build homes and businesses. For some famous examples, Bangladeshi-American Fazlur Khan designed the Sears Tower, Jawed Karim co-founded YouTube, and Salman Khan established Khanacademy.org.

Although Bangadeshi-Americans Mohammed M. Hossain, Ehsanul Sadequee and Rezwan Ferdaus were previously convicted of terrorism, and although Bangladeshi Quazi M. Nafis is now accused of terrorism, it would be unfair for the entire Bangladeshi community to suffer a change in government policy just because of a few individuals. As you make policy, please be mindful that most Bangladeshis are peaceful people.

      I lived pretty much all my life her in the US, grew up like any amearicans and loving the country as my home. There are good and bad people out there (regardless of race or ethnicity). One or two accusations or convictions should change the view of a certain ethnic or cultural background. Have we investigated enough to determine eveything about the suspects/convicts before labeling them and thinking people of the same background being the same? Those great Bangladeshi-Americans that have contributed to the country along with all hundreds of thousands people that live amongst us (americans) do their fair share for the benefit of the country.

      Bangladesh is the most tolerant Muslim majority country in the present world and fiercely fighting religious terrorism. Yet the country is getting little or no help from anywhere in this regard. It is totally unfair to label Bangladesh as a terrorist nation.

      Bangladeshi Americans have a rich history of compassions and tolerance. They are very hard working group with highest ethical values. They deserve due respect and opportunity to give their best in improvement of the society.
