  1. Reporter mentioned many stats and leader without mentioning the source. Is that how Independent Source (?) work? Or is it just to highlight a someone? Parkchester Bangladeshi community growth is not the result of a single person. Mr. Shahid is a good person, a retired restaurant worker who has a plenty of time to devote. I believe, he lacks education (no college education) to lead an educated (majority has some sort of college degree from US or Bangladesh) community.
