DHAKA: Bangladesh has sent a rejoinder of two reports published in the London-based weekly magazine The Economist in its online issue on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the ongoing political situation of Bangladesh.
In the rejoinder the foreign ministry said the articles were full of misinformation and inaccurate conclusions against the ruling government.
The magazine published the articles titled "Politics in Bangladesh: Banged about: The prime minister sets the country on a dangerous path" and "Bangladesh`s toxic politics: Hello, Delhi: It is up to India to try to stop Sheikh Hasina ruining Bangladesh".
The articles alleged Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is leading Bangladesh on a "dangerous path". The articles totally ignored Bangladesh`s achievements in the last three years, said the statement.
The rejoinder urged The Economist reporters to make investigative reports why the UN Secretary-General has termed Bangladesh a "model country" and on the achievements of the country in the previous years.
Earlier on July 30, 2011, the Economist published an article titled ‘India and Bangladesh: Embraceable You’ which made ‘objectionable’ comment on the Bangladesh-India relations, transit, International Crimes Tribunal and 2008 national elections in Bangladesh.
On August 5, 2011, the Economist published the four-page rejoinder of Bangladesh, signed by Shamim Ahsan, DG of the external publicity wing of the Foreign Ministry.
