Muhammad Yunus removed from Grameen Bank!

It is Dr Muhammad Yunus, a  champion of the poor, an Economics Professor and a Nobel Laurete from Bangladesh; he is not Idi Amin, Saddam Hussain, Hosni Mubarak or Col Gaddafi.  He has been a saviour who showed a path to the rural poor women through Microfinance mantra and internationally acclaimed good samaritan.  If only he announces his intention to enter politics, the administration in Bangladesh resorts to remove him from the position he held in Grameen Bank!  Are we in a democracy and belong the the technology driven, modern twenty-first century or going back in history?
