Staff Reporter: The Bangladesh Society, the largest organization in New York and the United States, has boycotted the Bangladesh Day Parade to be held in New York next Sunday (May 26) for the first time. Chairman of the Board of Trustees M A Aziz said that Bangladesh Society will not participate in the parade due to adverse comments about the Board of Trustees and the Chairman of the Society.
Also, after a long struggle between the leaders of the Bangladeshi community for the past 1 week about the ‘grand marshal’ of the parade, the organizing organization World Human Rights Development Organization in the United States has finally canceled the position of the grand marshal of the parade.
In the meeting held at Smart Tech last Wednesday, May 22, Convenor Shah Newaz made a negative comment about Bangladesh Society’s board of trustees and chairman M A Aziz. Shah Newaz said that the board of trustees of Bangladesh society is the third kid of the goat. Bangladesh society president Abdur Rob and general secretary Ruhul Amin Siddiqui strongly protested his comment. They also demanded immediate withdrawal of such comments. The leaders of the society mentioned that if the organizers wanted financial help from the Bangladesh Society before this, they would be informed after the decision of the committee. Chairman of the Board of Trustees M A Aziz said that Bangladesh Society will not participate in the parade after this incident. Not only that, Rano Newaj, wife of Convener Shah Newaj, raised her hand on joint convener Syed Akikur Rahman Faruq for objecting to the appointment of grand marshal.
Faruq said, in front of everyone present, a woman raised her hands on him. But no one protested like that. He sought justice for humiliating him.
In this regard, when the convenor of Bangladesh Day Parade Shah Newaz was contacted by phone message, he said that Bangladesh Society will participate in the parade. M A Aziz banned from participating, Tarop will also participate in the society. Convener Shahneyaz mentioned that he also wants to participate. However, there is no grand marshal in the parade. He is the convener. He did not comment on the news that made him a grand marshal.
Bangladesh Day Parade Chairperson Shah Shahidul Haque Saeed did not give any comment when contacted by phone message. However, General Secretary Abdus Sobhan said yesterday that he had spoken with General Secretary Ruhul Amin Siddiqui to participate in the Bangladesh Society Parade. The president cannot come because he is sick. Abdus Sobhan pointed out that the president and editor also disclosed the fact of participating in the parade in a TV channel.
Bangladesh Society Board of Trustees and Chairman M A Aziz said that Bangladesh Society will not participate in the parade, it is 100% true. There is no reason to be confused about it. This is the final decision of the society. If anyone says anything about participating, it is a lie. He said that he had spoken to the president and editor about this.
He mentioned that Shah Shahidul Haque Sayed, President of World Human Rights Development Organization and Chairperson of Bangladesh Day Parade, demanded $50,000 from him for the post of Grand Marshal. Ever since he expressed his inability to pay such a sum of money, the Bangladeshi community leaders have been fighting for the post of grand marshal. In the end, the organizers were forced to cancel the post of grand marshal.
