A list of people who climbed Mount Everest made by the Nepal Ministry of Tourism and the Nepal Mountaineering Association did not have the name of Ibrahim on it. The list said that the first Bangladeshi man and woman to climb the mountain were MA Muhith and Nishat Majumder. However, they doubted Ibrahim’s claim. Ibrahim said that there was a plan against him and the NMA was affected by it. The case went to a court in Dhaka. O’Mahoney, who was with Ibrahim when he climbed Everest, said that he saw Ibrahim reach the third step, which is close to the top. In May 2010, it was proven and confirmed that Ibrahim was the first Bangladeshi to reach the top of Mount Everest.
