BD Excluded from US HR Watchlist

Bangladesh has been dropped out from United States' HR list of the Human Rights list meaning that the US government is happy with the situation of human rights in Bangladesh over minorities, women and any that follow. It was said that because of the current Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, this was archived. The ambassador said, "The United States excluded the name of Bangladesh from its watch list on November 3 following the improvement of situation in various human rights fields." They also mentioned that during the BNP-Jamaat government, this was not possible,  and empowerment and development of women was another achievement for the Bangladeshis.
