Ok, I have no problem seeing Hijab. My mom maintain Hijab and so is most of my female relative. But does Hijab means wearing black burkha, forcing young girl as young as eight to wear gloves in this oppresing heat just because you are his father than I have problem. Fundos study two paper of Bangla and English while others study four papers. Now these fundos want us to treat them as equal otherwise they vandalize VC's bunglow, there surrogates resist admission test. Fundos want 'No Concer' and instantly administration obliged though they previously approve that; Government commissioned sculpture, after spending the money some fundos want that the sculpture should be dismantled and government caved in instantly. This is talibanization at instutional levels; and you are claiming I am paranoid.

3) To date, I havent seen anything that resembles enforcement of Islamic laws by fundos.....

4) Yes, you have a few thousand marching against Ahmadias or Lalon statue some Fridays , but they are mostly harmless in that the police never allow them to cause chaos if their demands are not met, and also because our society is much less weaponized than Pakistan
I respectfully disagree.
1. As recently as last week police apprenhended some fundies. Fundies already applied for registraton. I wonder how many misses the net. With coming political government I have doubt policing would be same again.
2. Is it? With so many people living below poverty line Bangladesh is a fertile ground for fundies to prosper. Bangla vai and co was patronize by sympathetic police officers adminsitrators and politicians is well documented. And all of them are still in their respective domain (except The Rajshai SP who was forced retired)and never brought to justice
3. You forgot about Baghmara the fiefdom of Bangla Vai and just few days ago I heard about how he ruled from one of the eye witness
4. Police don't need that because their demand are instantly met. Though you are right about the last one i.e. our society is less weaponized
Twenty20 is not a gentleman's game. It's like a one-night stand and not a marriage. It is a street format and the goonda doesn't know what is a late cut or a cover drive
