  • Published at 11:07 am March 31st, 2014

Bangladeshi climber Musa Ibrahim will speak in public soon on the ongoing controversy over conquering Everest as the first Bangladeshi.

“I will present the evidence to the nation to prove the authenticity of climbing the summit of Everest,” he said in a post on his Facebook wall on Monday.

He also urged all to refrain from maligning his character and integrity by raising questions that he did not conquer the summit of the Mount Everest.

 “I have noticed that a few persons are propagating against me in 2/3 media outlets in Bangladesh, that I did not conquer the summit of the Mount Everest in 2010,” the facebook post reads.

A debate is going on in the country that Musa Ibrahim did not conquer the Everest as a recent Nepal government publication didn’t include Musa Ibrahim’s name in the Everest summiteers’ list.

In the post, Musa stated that he reached the summit of the Mount Everest through North Route, Tibet, China on May 23, 2010.

“I am out of country now on a family visit. As soon as I am back home, I will present all the evidences one more time to the nation and the media to prove the authenticity of the summit,” he added.

So far five Bangladeshis have scaled the highest peak on the earth.

MA Mohit climbed the Mount Everest twice in May 21, 2011 and May 20, 2012. Nishat Majumder, first Bangaldeshi woman to conquer the Everest, scaled the mountain in 2012.

Wasfia Nazreen was the second Bangladeshi woman to climb Mount Everest on May 26, 2012.

In 2013 Bangladeshi climber Sajal Khaled scaled the Mount Everest. He had died while descending from world’s highest peak.
