Faisal Gazi Flees Bangladesh

Original article : http://www.spittoon.org/archives/8819

Members of Bangladesh’s secular class are not well known for bucking popular consensus especially if it means not siding with Bangladesh’s microscopic wealthy minority to repeal its toxic poverty (and discrimination against non-Bengalis). One notable and extraordinary exception is Faisal Gazi who has fled the country he claims to love in order to come to the UK:

THE FREELANCE
Faisal Gazi, 39, Bangladeshi. IT specialist. Lives in Woodford, Essex. Married. Arrived in the UK: 1999
“I was born in Bangladesh and first came to the UK in 1972. My childhood was split between both countries, and after studying engineering at Leeds University in the late 1980s, I went back to Bangladesh in 1991 to see if I could use the skills I’d gained. I got a job at Unicef, gathering data for its programmes. I also tried to set up an e-commerce website for a publishing company, but became disillusioned by the business culture, which is quite risk-averse.
In 1999, I arrived back in the UK with £40. I’ve now built a successful business as a freelance IT consultant, with clients such as Visa and Penguin. I couldn’t use the skills I’ve gained in Bangladesh.
This report surprised me; it must be inaccurate. I thought attitudes had improved. I must be contributing something to this country as I know how much I’m paying in taxes. I also know a lot of highly skilled migrant executives who must be adding to the greater good.
Migration doesn’t just involve economic benefits. If travel broadens the mind of the traveller, it also benefits the host country. Thanks to migration, Britain is an even greater country, a much more appealing, broader-minded place.
For migrant workers who want to give something back, England is still one of the best places to live. I have a lot of Bangladeshi friends who went to the States in the 1990s and now want to come here.’

Immigration: migrants in their own words

    fascinating to see such a propagator of hatred against muslims, who bans all criticism of himself,
    talking about britain being “a more broad minded place”!

    “um ..er…1971 genocide!….Islamist…..post colonial qurbism…1971 genocide….Bangladesh…..swami league……Islamist……..1971 genocide…..rape…….Islamist….post colonial qutbism…etc”
