No progressive force can be found in the country now

In seeking an answer to the question of which path Bangladesh is on, we must examine the clear objective of establishing a powerful, prosperous, and democratic state. Mere protest and resistance against malevolent forces yield no significant benefit; at best, they may only replace one corrupt power with another. Constructive thought and action are necessary. We must break the existing laws, regulations, and structures to establish better ones, not to perpetuate disorder. We need to break down the old to build anew, not just to destroy. The focus now must be on building.

Eviction of Mironjilla settlement of Harijan community by City Corporation is lack of conscience

The measure of a society's civilization is determined by the rule of law it upholds. Alongside race and religion, humanity is a significant aspect of a country. Ignoring this humanity and the rule of law, an eviction drive was carried out in the Mironjilla settlement of the Harijan community in Ward 33 of Banshal, Dhaka. In this eviction drive, one person, overwhelmed with anger and despair, attempted suicide. Despite being supposed to attend school in their uniforms, students joined a human chain to protest against this eviction.

What are the consequences of Israel Palestine conflict?

The horrific massacres in Gaza are undoubtedly distressing. Amid the prevailing discontent in the Arab world, various perspectives have emerged regarding the ongoing conflict in Gaza, leading to a divided public opinion. Questions have arisen about whether the decision to engage in intense conflict in Gaza was solely made by Hamas or if there were other resisting factions or allied forces involved in making this crucial decision. In such an unstable period, when the entire region was on the brink of a potentially catastrophic situation, this decision seems to have further exacerbated the situation

Unprecedented Benazir

No one Knows about corruption of powerful while they are in power!

I find it hard to believe the widespread allegations of Benazir Ahmed, the former Inspector General of Police, amassing substantial illegal wealth; after all, he had received the Integrity Award from the Ministry of Home Affairs. Integrity refers to righteous conduct, good behavior, and actions enriched with principles and ethics. The norm is to award officials and employees for honesty, integrity, and dedication to duty. Benazir Ahmed not only received the Integrity Award but also won the BPM Award five times for his brave role in the police force. If he lacked integrity, it would be unlikely for him to receive the BPM Award five times solely for his courage.

Is Bangladesh's food security really at risk?

If the news is true, it is indeed alarming. Bangladesh ranks among the top ten countries facing food insecurity. According to a report from the Global Report on Food Crises 2024, published in Bonn, Germany, Bangladesh is eighth in the list of countries experiencing prolonged food insecurity. The summary of this index states that nearly 176 million people, or 62.5 percent of the total population in 59 countries, are facing severe long-term food insecurity, with some requiring urgent humanitarian assistance. In this context, the top ten countries are Congo, Nigeria, Sudan, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Yemen, Syria, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Myanmar.

Historic June 7 marks inception of spirit of independence

Every year on June 7, we observe 'Six-Point Day' with due respect. The Six Points and June 7 are intricately linked in the history of the national liberation struggle. The significance of the Six Points and June 7 in our national life is immense. On June 7, 1966, under the leadership of the Awami League, the people of Bengal observed a comprehensive strike against the Pakistani rulers, demanding the release of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and all other political prisoners. This day is marked by the blood of many martyrs, including Manu Miah and Mujibullah, staining the historic Six Points. Later, at the beginning of the mass movement in 1969, the Six Points evolved into the Eleven Points, leading to the historic 1970 election, and ultimately, through the sacrifice of a sea of blood, we achieved the single point of independence in 1971.

Police custody means protection, not death

In Bangladesh, ordinary people fear the police and try to stay away from them. However, the police are supposed to be friends of the public. Let me first share two examples of this friendship. A few days ago, a thief went to a market to steal from a shop. However, by the time he had gathered the stolen goods, dawn had broken, and people started arriving. Hearing the noise of the people around, the thief got scared. He was afraid that if people found him inside the shop, they would beat him to death. The cunning thief called 999 and asked for police assistance. The police came and rescued the thief from inside the shop. Later, of course, he was arrested, but he was saved because the police arrived in time. If the market people had caught him, he would have been beaten to death.

Who won India’s Lok Sabha Election?

Until the evening of June 4th, the counting of Lok Sabha election results in India was underway, but it is now almost complete. The massive seven-phase election began on April 19 and ended last Saturday. The outcome of the election in the world's largest democracy was not unexpected. It clearly favors the BJP-led NDA over the opposition alliance I.N.D.A. The Lok Sabha, constitutionally the House of the People, is the lower house of India's bicameral Parliament, with the upper house being the Rajya Sabha.
