General Secretary’s Message.


Since I returned from the UK after the completion of my Ph.D program in 1996, I was wondering and looking for a platform where the memorable days in the UK and as a Commonwealth fellow, the achievements I have had in my career can be shared with other fellows of similar feelings. The historical moment at Hotel  Sarina on February 22, 2014 was a turning point for the  Commonwealth Alumni in Bangladesh to seedling that for the wider horizon of social connectivity and sharing of professional expertise. I feel honored to be the part of that journey and that I could contribute into the development process of BACSAF. I understand the journey for a wider mission and to bring the collective efforts of scholars and fellows through BASCAF initiatives into the nation building process and to raise voice for global peace, prosperity and harmony is a challenge.  However, BACSAF members of high level intellectual foresight and professionalism can not only play a vital role to leading the nation for a sustainable development goal but also to enhance and establish social equability, social justice and cultural value.  BACSAF members with their colourful dreams and multi-dimensional expertise can make Bangladesh different and present a bright future for the next generation.
