Through the War of Independence Bangladesh got liberty in 1971 from the ruling class of Pakistan.There were seven crore population and 1.52 lakh freedom fighters to ransom their lives to free the nation from the clutches of the west. People of Bangladesh started to dream a new life and change after the end of Pakistan misrule and torture. Brave freedom fighters fought against the Pakistan army to put an end to looting and concentration of wealth by the
then 22 crorepati families– all of them from the western part of the country (Pakistan). Before that Awami League
won brute majority in 1970 elections under the stewardship of the founding president of Bangladesh Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
With the birth of the new nation aspirations for peace and prosperity went very high with much fanfare.But after much funfare the same people began to be frustrated and defranchaised about the misrule of the Bangladesh govt
in between 1972-75. People lost the right to form parties as the govt banned all political parties except one ruling party- Bangladesh Krishak Sramik League- popularly known as BAKSAL. As a result of utter mismanagement of the regime Bangladesh experienced famine, leaving several lakhs dead. People were left into despair. A vacuum was created. People were looking for a platform to heal their wound, vent their anger above all they to speak up against the then one-party rule.
A counter organisational instead of opposion political force replacing the ruling quarters (parties) like Muslim League was working to flourish then and that was Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD). At the same time
In this backdrop grooming up of some patriotic, honest and competent political activists was the demand of the time. Creation of a platform was inevitable in the dark time.Some platforms came into being then including BNP. The space was filled after long 8 years inside the independence.
History repeats itself. It took only 25 years for BNP to take u-turn, toeing the footsteps other pure capitalists and
pro-corporates or disbelieving in the market intervention on the social democratic lines or on Islamic market
monitoring lines.Starting with the professionals the party started to deviate by selling nomination to businesses in
1991 parliamentary polls and lost the ground to do something for the welfare of the people.
Businessmen turned into policymakers of the party, transforming it into businessmen’s and crorepati contractors’ party
BNP hegemony, to change pro-people BNP into pro-business or pro-rich BNP, wholesaly supported the contractors
and other businesses to flourish.Primarily politicians coming into the fold of BNP, turned into business barons
vice versa basically businessmen came to be politicians. Same fate has befallen on the commons with few exceptions of dictators’ days.
Over the years people have seen political wrangle between two capitalists–BNP and Awami League–and it again
frustrated people.Despotic nature of the government prompts the opposition to resort to confrontation
course, creating space for third party. Scope to come to power without people’s mandate was also widened.
So some brave enthusiastic and visionary young guys need to be organised. The organisation will give priority to people’s welfare, check concentration of wealth, practise democracy and social welfare activities. It will promote scholarly people, address farmers’ woes, set up a good number of educational institutes for crores of students to groom up.
Freedom Fighters, national leaders including Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhasani, founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Major General Ziaur Rahman and others will be duly honoured. With organisational strenght, love among the activists, sincerity in grooming students and furthering their career and creating around 25 lakh
jobs along with the vision to safeguard the whole nation from all forms of oppression, repression and exploitation the third force will turn into the alternative to BNP and Awami League in Bangladesh… (to be continued)


Criticise the contemporaries, spare the dead

History of not taking lessons from human history is as historical as the history itself. Only sensible persons and true believers take lessons from history. A person, who kills his conscience, suppresses insisting inner voice and goes on compromising immorality for sure, will not pay heed to good suggestions. Among the leaders prophets were the most sincere to take lessons from rise and fall of different civilizations of the world. Hope the majorities, be they Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, Hindus or Jews of the world, will take lessons from the history and behave with the minorities in their neighborhood accordingly because all of them are majority in one country when minority in other country. While behaving with the minorities the majorities should remember that they are minority in a distant land apart from religious values and universal declaration of human rights.
There is a cultural savagery ritually practiced among the leaders and activists of Bangladesh Awami League, Bangladesh Nationalist Party. Toeing the lines of them a few of the Islamic political parties also criticise the dead leaders of the BNP and AL. In most cases in the parliament when AL in power hurls abuses against BNP’s dead stalwarts including President Ziaur Rahman and other nationalists the later walk out in protest. On the vice versa the former walks out of the parliament in the face of BNP’s abusive tirades against Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and other secularist leaders.
As Bangladesh experienced the lowest ever temperature last winter it is widely anticipated that mercury most likely to go to the top, breaking a new record in this summer. Those of you are physically stout and disease-resistant couldn’t have been careless about health in this simmering summer let alone those who are vulnerable to severe heat. Apart from weather being extremist many sociopolitical and religio-economic incidents and developments in Bangladesh are seemingly taking extremist turn. Suppose when atheist bloggers extremely outshined Salman Rushdie, Dawood Haider and others in blaspheming Prophet Muhammad sallahu alaihi wasallam and in response to that several million people gathered in Motijheel on April 6 to denounce the defamation, blasphemy, character assassination and stigmatizing — which are prohibited in the laws of the land— the Prophet of Islam only. It was the manifestation of extreme capacity of an apolitical organization— Hefajat-e-Islam. Misinformation, disinformation and maligning to their new extreme point are going on in full swing by some so-called insiders primarily to serve the purpose of the anti-Islamic forces and countries and secondarily to debilitate the predominantly Muslim countries including Bangladesh. Speaking ill of others, backbiting of contemporaries and even back-lashing of dead leaders are done indiscriminately both by the activists of main two political camps— AL and BNP.
Even a section of good Muslims mistakenly follow the footsteps of nationalists and secularists whereas Islam teaches to spare the dead persons of being backbitten, as in the presence of Ikrama and his father Abu Jehel in the present case . It also teaches ‘la nufarriku bina ahadimmirrasuli’ not to differentiate between the Prophets. On top of all Prophet Muhammad sallahu alaihi wasallam even taught his fellows not to speak ill of the idols like Laat, Hojja and others in front of their worshippers who in retaliation may speak ill of Allah. In case of facts and concrete documents one can place them very positively.
