Inspiring Person from Bangladesh : Professor Muhammad Yunus
Gold Medal Ceremony Honoring Professor Muhammad Yunus at US congress
Prof. Muhammad Yunus has received the Congressional Gold Medal from the leaders of the U.S. House and Senate on 17 April 2013, the most distinguished award bestowed by the United States Congress. The award in recognition of his efforts to combat global poverty. He is one of 7 people ever that has received the Peace Nobel Prize, Presidential Medal of Freedom and Congressional Gold Medal.
Since the American Revolution in 1776, the United States “Congress has commissioned gold medals as its highest expression of national appreciation for distinguished achievements and contributions” to humanity. These medals are given to honour individuals, institution or an event who are widely acclaimed by Americans for their sacrifice and contributions. All Congressional gold medal legislations must be co-sponsored by at least 66 per cent (290) of the members of the House. According to the rules of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, at least 67 Senators must co-sponsor any legislation for the Congressional Gold Medal before the committee considers it.
This award is a great honour not just for Professor Yunus, but for all Bangladeshis. He is uniquely a Bangladeshi, and could not have done his work on poverty alleviation outside Bangladesh. Every citizen of Bangladesh should feel justifiably proud that a fellow Bangladeshi citizen is being honoured by this most distinguished award.
