President, PM Hasina reaffirm Bangladesh’s position on independent Palestinian state



DHAKA, Nov 28, 2020 (BSS) – President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have reaffirmed Bangladesh’s position for the establishment of an independent, viable and contiguous Palestinian state within the pre-1967 borders.

In separate messages on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, the President and Prime Minister have also reiterated Bangladesh’s unswerving supports for the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine.

“On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, Bangladesh reiterates its unswerving supports for the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine. We reaffirm our principled position in favor of the establishment of an independent, viable and contiguous Palestinian State within pre-1967 borders with East Jerusalem-Al Quds Al-Sharif its capital under a two-state solution,” said the President in his message.

In line with the guidance of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the constitutional obligation, Bangladesh always supports oppressed people throughout the world waging a just struggle against imperialism, colonialism or racialism, he said.

He said Father of the Nation in his maiden speech delivered in the United Nations General Assembly in 1974 as well as his statements in the 2nd Conference of OIC in 1974 and 4th NAM Summit in 1973 expressed Bangladesh’s unflinching support for the legitimate right and just struggle of the Palestinian people. Bangladesh has remained consistent in this position from the very beginning of its statehood, he added.

“In fact, our own struggle for independence and the painful experience of the worst form of genocide in 1971 inspired us to stand against injustice and oppression that people of Palestine had been subjected to for many decades and advocate for an early resolution of this protracted crisis. Guided by a similar spirit, Bangladesh has given shelter to more than one million Rohingyas from Myanmar and has been urging the international community to work with Myanmar for repatriation of the Rohingyas and a sustainable solution to the Rohingya crisis,” said the President.

In her message Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said: “We reaffirm our principled position in favor of the establishment of an independent, viable and contiguous Palestinian State within pre-1967 borders with East Jerusalem-Al Quds Al-Sharif as its capital under a two-state solution”.

She said Bangladesh has remained consistent in this position from the very beginning of its statehood. “In fact, our own struggle for independence and the painful experience of the enduring worst form of genocide in 1971 inspired us to stand against injustice and oppression that the people of Palestine had been subjected to for many decades and advocate for an early resolution of this protracted crisis”.

“Guided by a similar spirit, Bangladesh has given shelter to more than one million Rohingyas from Myanmar and has been urging the international community to work with Myanmar for repatriation of the Rohingyas and a sustainable solution to the Rohingya crisis,” she added.

That the crisis of the Palestinian people lingers for ages is a stark failure of the international community including the United Nations, she said, adding that Bangladesh strongly opposes the use of force by the occupying forces against the Palestinian civilian population including women, children and the elderly.

“We call for an immediate cessation of the continued aggression, illegal settlements and demolitions of homes,” she said, adding that on this day, Bangladesh joins the efforts of the international community to support Palestine and its territorial integrity as established through UN Security Council resolutions.

“We call for an end to the repeated violation of human rights and international humanitarian principles in Palestine by the occupying Israeli forces. The international community must show urgency for the cause and redouble efforts seeking to find a durable, peaceful, and just solution to the Palestine crisis in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions, the Arab Peace Initiative, and the Quartet Road Map,” said the Prime Minister.

I do not see the point of this....

Bangladesh first must always be the motto.....

Palestinian should be supported as fellow muslims but our interest must take precedence over emotion.

BD should maintain calculated ambiguity in this topic. What do we get by harping on about this? This is an issue for arabs to solve not us.

Nationalism shouldn't go over humanity.
Having relations with Israel won't make Bangladesh a 1st world country, and there is nothing the country cannot get from Israel that it cannot get from elsewhere in the world.

Israel can not help us in any significant way. Israel has diplomatic relation with over 160 countries in the world, many of them are pisspoor. Relation with Israel did not turn them into a first world developed countries. We are not going to buy American F-35 jets, we are not in the Middle East, we do not perceive Iran as a threat. So we have none of the excuse to coozy-up with the zionists like some treacherous Arab sheikhs are giving. But our support for Palestinian cause is important as a part of international community. This international solidarity with Palestinians deligitimize Israeli aggression and unlawful acts. We should not let go this just position.

I am not proposing normalising relationship with the zionist entity but I am proposing that BD does not take a stident pro palestians position either.

Our position should be calibrated to further our interest in each and every scenario. In this tussle i do not see any gains for BD so we should desist from participating. If arabs themselves dont care what is our support or lack of really matter..

ISLAMABAD, Sunday, November 29, 2020 (WAFA) – On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the republics of Bangladesh and Pakistan expressed their firm support for the Palestinian people in their just cause and their struggle for independence and freedom.

Bangladeshi President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina reaffirmed Bangladesh’s position for the establishment of an independent, viable and contiguous Palestinian state within the pre-1967 borders.

“On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, Bangladesh reiterates its unswerving supports for the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine. We reaffirm our principled position in favor of the establishment of an independent, viable and contiguous Palestinian State within pre-1967 borders with East Jerusalem-Al Quds Al-Sharif its capital under a two-state solution,” said Abdul Hamid a message quoted by the Dhaka-based Dhaka Tribune daily.

He recalled Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the founding father of Bangladesh, who was a strong supporter of the legitimate right and just struggle of the Palestinian people, adding that Bangladesh remains consistent in this position from the very beginning of its statehood.

“In fact, our own struggle for independence and the painful experience of the worst form of genocide in 1971 inspired us to stand against injustice and oppression that people of Palestine had been subjected to for many decades and advocate for an early resolution of this protracted crisis,” said the Bangladeshi president.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Munir Akram said Pakistan has always remained a staunch supporter of the Palestinian people.

He said supporting Palestinian right to self-determination and calling for an early creation of a sovereign Palestinian state is a cardinal pillar of Pakistan's foreign policy.

Akram said Pakistan will continue its unwavering support to the struggle of the Palestinian people to attain self-determination and achieve their independent state.

Some struggles of our own are continually discounted, disputed and mocked, we are conscientious people but somethings need to give from both sides.

That question you should direct at Hasina, It's maybe a personal issue for her; the Palestinian conflict.





Everybody is selective...

We express our support with deeds not words.

Every year we train many Palestinian and Kashmiri doctors and maybe engineers as well. Possibly using grants and free of cost. At all institutions. These causes have widespread public support and sympathy.

Number of Kashmiri medical students in Bangladesh is now about 600 per year, and it is rising rapidly. This number from India will exceed several thousand, and there are many Pakistani medical students too as I've detailed in some threads in the recent past.


Same with Palestinian military cadets etc.

I am sure Pakistan does this too.

This is a question of decency and our collective humane behavior as a society. Everything cannot be measured by a quid-pro-quo equation.

If we are doing something like this for Rohingya, why not Kashmir and Palestine?

The fact that Arabs are capable of resolving the issue (and won't), doesn't mean we cannot be humane.

I am all for humatarian actions such as you have mentioned.... my opposition lies in the messaging. BD should keep out of contentious
Issues publicly.
