Israel-Iran War Not Just Now

Israel on April 1 launched missiles at an Iranian diplomatic compound in Damascus, killing two generals and five other senior officers. Iran responded by launching missiles and drones at Israeli targets. They seem to have inflicted little damage and, Israel did not really need outside help. the United States and the United Kingdom used naval assets armed with anti-missile systems to intercept Iranian missiles over Syria, Iraq and Jordan. It was a signal to Iran that the attack on Israel could invite U.S. and British intervention. The U.S. has a long and unpleasant history with Iran, and it wanted to remind Tehran that it would face more than one enemy if it confronted Israel.

Boycotting India will not benefit Bangladesh

A social media campaign has been going on for quite some time urging the countrymen to boycott Indian products. The campaigners are announcing that they will use products made in Bangladesh or any other country instead of Indian products. Expressing solidarity with the social media movement to boycott Indian products, BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi set fire to an Indian shawl in front of the party’s Naya Paltan office in the capital. I assumed that BNP leaders and activists would now continue to bring Indian products including sarees and shawls from their homes and burn them on the streets. But after Naya Paltan there was no such burning campaign of Indian products.

Crime propencity during Eid

During Eid-ul-Fitr, people from various walks of life have different long-term plans associated with the event. To implement these plans, there is a year-round effort among the general public. If we focus on businessmen, we can see that Eid is utilized as an opportunity for livelihood not only by foopath traders but also by all other classes and professions. Businesspeople, including footpath traders and others from various professions, actively engage in planning and implementing business strategies to capitalize on Eid. No one refrains from striving to give their business establishment a new look. Businesspeople, along with people from all other walks of life, target Eid to infuse vibrancy into their businesses. There is an inclination to cultivate a commercial mindset (focused solely on profit, product marketing) among a particular class targeting the simple and honest general public in Bangladesh. Criminals also target Eid with the intention of committing crimes, as the economic wheel expands during the season, and the active nature of the economy increases the temptation among them to engage in criminal activities.

CHIN CHRONICLES, CHT COMPLICATIONS, COLLATERAL CONCERNS, COUNTRY CHALLENGES

COEXISTENCE: The Chin State is mountain terrain on the northwestern Myanmar and named after the Chin people who live there. The impoverished region’s inhabitants – Chin - are closely related to the Kuki and the Mizo communities. The Chin State shares borders India’s Mizoram state, which is inhabited primarily by the Mizos. The Chin State also has a common border with Bangladesh’s Rangamati and Bandarban of the hill tracts. These two districts consist of a noteworthy number of Kuki-Chin community members. So, the Kuki-Chin community is spread over hilly areas in Bangladesh, Mizoram, and Myanmar. While Bangladesh has had its share of insurgency and long internal conflict in the hill tracts, Mizoram and Myanmar continue to have their issues as well.
