  1. Just to impress the Owner of the World, the Western World, we need a female prime ministers, female opposition leaders, now female speaker. Of course these measures may establish equal respect and opportunity for female, Islam’s one of the most important priorities and instructions.
    I am not one bit of opposition that Bangladesh has female heads – not a thing wrong with that; to me competency counts – male, female, muslim, christian, hindu, or jewish is not relevant to me. Important to me, are you honest, or you are a thief – that is more important than anything for Bangladesh. Bangladesh is the poorest and notoriously proven the most corrupted country of the earth. Thieves are from top to the bottom in the government, which is what hurts the country more than anything about Bangladesh.
    If we find top 100 leaders in the government are not thieves, not corrupted one bit, they might be male or female, from any religion including Jewish faith; I will respect them, love them and help them.
