The real reason of removal of Professor Muhammad Yunus is very simple.
The Economist did already break the fact in their 2nd March issue with this statement,

People of Bangladesh know all along that this is all about jealousy/ Hingsha and vandetta. Even the LA Times eluded to this theory of ‘Hinghsha’…
