Let him think that way.

Quader Molla also showed V sign. You know what happened next.

Even with the assumption that AL will pardon him in future, with current situation there is no guarantee how long AL gov will survive.

On the other hand if the assumption is: he thinks as he have done crime against minority and therefore Jamat will not execute that verdicts... then he have some hopes.

Yeah i agree. But i think it will go through another round of trials, either high or judge court. People with more legal knowledge can elaborate further.

Mollah's v sign was his downfall because his audacity was a shame for the rest of us and that prompted massive awakening. AL might not have enough time to execute all of them but the quick trial was a good example from them and might set some precedent for future. So credit to AL. Previous BNP rule failed to do similar things.

Even if they are not executed, make them rot in jails.

Why is 19 party alliance asking for protest during the Test series?
this permission was to protest harrasment of Tariq Zia Shashuri!

Here we go again...

Ulfa is India's enemy, and yet I wonder how many Ulfa members have been sentenced to death by Indian courts themselves..

Felani case is another example of how much India values our lives

BRTC bus now gets Wi-Fi’ed
As per government’s commitment towards a digital Bangladesh, Ministry of ICT and Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) came up with an exclusive venture: BUS with Wi-Fi service. Despite being very common in North American, European and countries in Asia Pacific, this would be the very first time in Bangladesh were passengers will be getting wireless connectivity throughout their entire commute.

Under the active supervision of Access to Information project (a2i) of Prime Minister’s Office, 20 buses would be rolled out in the streets. This concept was proposed months ago but it took awhile for the ministries and the bodies to actually come to an agreement to start and manage the service.

Quote:


Every year, from June through October, Jashim Salam’s house in Chittagong, Bangladesh, floods. Not once, or twice, but five or six times—per month. It’s like that throughout the city, where several million people live alongside the sea. The water flows in from the Karnaphuli River, pushed beyond its banks by the rising tide of the Bay of Bengal.

This is a recent phenomenon, one many blame on climate change and rising seas coupled with the annual monsoon season. Residents have had to adapt and adjust to the enormous hardships of a life too often lived under water. Salam has been documenting just what it’s like for him and his neighbors. The photographer has produced two series about the flooding. Water World offers an intimate look at life in his neighborhood during a flood. Water World 2 is a powerful series of portraits of people standing in their homes, or in the streets of their communities, surrounded by water.

The portraits are meant to show just how absurd life has become. But it also offers a timeline of sorts. He’s photographed children who have grown up with the flooding and consider it, if not normal, than at least a regular thing. But subjects his age—Salam is 35—and older appreciate how radically their lives and communities have changed. His portraits are both beautiful and shocking. For most, the idea of living knee-deep in water for days on end is incomprehensible.

“It’s very annoying and the people are very fed up,” he says.

I'm sure free thinkers have no problem in Bangladesh, it's the abuses & bigotry being responded by their equals. We always had free thinking at the intellectual level, since our independence. Our media was always able to be critical of even Islam in many ways. Our TV dramas have always been portraying religious bigots in a pretty demeaning way and was accepted by the mass too.

I'm sure you know the reasons for actions and counter actions, that's happening now. Free thinking should be done in an intelligent way, not through abuses & by bigotry. That attract and inspires bigots on the other side.

Could you provide an example of something you consider bigoted written by the three bloggers who've been murdered in the last few months? From the excerpts that have been published in the English press of these bloggers' writings, they seem to have been thoughtful and serious individuals, critical of religious fundamentalism and dogmatism and supportive of humanism and critical thought.

To take the most recently murdered blogger, Ananta Bijoy Das, as an example, here are his final published words:

Quote:
“No one [should] limit themselves within the walls of narrow-mindedness…it’s time for them to crawl out of the well and view our enormous universe from a new perspective. All of us are human, and all of us are Bangladeshi Bengalis.”
http://www.economist.com/news/asia/2...ther-way-third

These words don't seem like those of an abusive and bigoted person. And in any case, even if you consider him a bigot, his worst crime was to express his thoughts publicly, while the "bigots on the other side" are responsible for murdering him and the other bloggers in cold blood. There's simply no equivalence whatsoever.

34 attacks by extremists in the last 14 months. Will it get better or worse depends on if our police is competent enough to catch any of these guys and uncover the network. So far the signs are not so promising.

Problem is there seems to be a limitless supply of youths willing to commit these acts. Simply catching one or two of these scum won't lead to much as often the perpetrators don't have direct communication with the masterminds. If I am correct two of the attackers who murdered one of the bloggers last year were caught by locals and arrested immediately after the attack. Don't think much came out of that and these attacks are continuing. Bangladesh needs a specialist anti-terrorism unit. Train agents, send them in to infiltrate suspect groups and see where the chain leads to, identify mullahs encouraging these acts in their sermons and lock them away (if it were up to me their punishment would be much harsher but anyway) and crucially monitor online activity. The stuff I've read just on facebook pages and comments (getting hundreds of likes) doesn't even make me surprised when attacks like these happen anymore. Extremist ideology is slowly but surely permeating through Bangladeshi society and I'm not sure if anything can be done about it if the people aren't really concerned which seems to be the case. Obvious steps would be to comprehensively review the madrasa system and closely follow where funds from the Middle East are going.

I'd also like to salute the brave lady ASI Momtaz who chased these bastards on her own and managed to snatch a bag from them getting injured in the process. Praying for her quick recovery. Police claim they have obtained significant intel from that bag. Let's see if anything comes out of it.

I dont think ordinary youth can murder someone and escape like the way these guys are doing. Bangladesh is a crowded place but they are managing to get away every time which leads me to believe there is a lot of training and planning involved.

Totally agree on the need for anti terrorism unit because the current police force looks to be clueless.

Disillusioned youth and the lure of instant paradise is a deadly combo.

I think Bangladesh has managed to control major terrorism however they are failing to manage such acts of micro terrorism. High resolution CCTV with minimum blind spots can be a good option going forward. We can blame the cops, but we need to realize that they need to work with very limited resources.

It's very frustrating to see the country going into this wrong direction. I was always very proud of our moderate stance. People getting murdered for difference in opinion is never acceptable.

And also why was the Rajshahi professor killed? Its not only atheist and bloggers. This prof was cultural but also religious and built madrasa and masjid in his village. Hard to see why he would be targeted.

I have no words..this is just beyond sad.

I am not sure how the Bangladeshi society is now. But all throughout 80s-2010s, there was a good balance between religion and culture. Our families would reflect that too. We would have some very devout uncles or cousins and some others who were into music or "shongskriti-mona". But at the end of the day, we will get along. The murubbis would be annoyed by the kids' song and dance and would yell at us and then its back the normal. And in times of Ramadan, Eid, and other events everyone would join in too.

I miss those days

We need a revamp of our security forces. A sizable portion of our budget should go to our police forces so that they are better trained and are given better equipments to combat terrorists. The incompetence right now is just shocking.
