“We have been trying to help the people struggling due to the crisis. There are many who are not being able to reveal their struggle publicly. There are many freedom fighters in my area who are stressed due to the situation. That is why myself and Tamim bhai decided to do something for them. We have gifted them with some cash and rations of regular use. Our UNO madam has handed those to them [freedom fighters],” Nazmul Islam Apu was quoted as saying by Dhaka Tribune.
The left-handed spinner termed the aid as ‘gift’ from them and mentioned it was for what the freedom fighters had done for the country back in 1971. “Our gift to the freedom fighters [in my area] is for what they have done for our country.
