Bangladesh: Can A Journalist Throw Shoes To A Leader?

“I cannot undermine the sentiment of Al- Zaidi and ordinary Iraqi people who are the sufferer of invasion and war. But he has misused his access and accreditation rights by throwing shoes. I would be happy if Al-Zaidi were a member of any other community except journalist,” comments Bangladeshi blogger and journalist Mahadi754.


  • Hi aLL

    Al-Zaidi is a journalist and same time he is member of the society too. So I think he has done the right thing. He did not go to NY to through shoe, a cowboy came to iraq who has murderd many children and reaped many women in iraq, and he was attacked by a patriotic man. NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.

  • Kamran

    I understand, sometimes some misdeeds of our community people forces us to face trouble. I agree with the points of the writer Mahadi754. Nice write-up
