Role of administrator being referred to: Brahmanbaria incident on Hindus

Sunday's assaults on the Hindus in Brahmanbaria's Nasirnagar Upazila could have been turned away had the nearby organization and police acted instantly and taken preventive measures, say casualties and local people. Strains had been preparing in the region since Saturday, as two Islamist bunches - Touhidi Janata and Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat - called two dissent energizes for Sunday over a neighborhood Hindu youth's charged...

Brainwashing from madrasa to private university; the breeding ground for militants

‘We have to remember that institutions like the NSU, Brac or IUB were strongholds of Hizb ut-Tahrir – that Islamist group’s recruitment went on unimpeded in the private universities until the government banned them’ Terrorist infiltration in North South University and several other private universities became the talk of the town after the Gulshan Holey Bakery attack. Suspicion arose also after it was revealed...

Contemporary death vs. public awareness

Moyukh Mahtab।। When blogger Rajib Haider was killed in 2013, the outcry was tremendous. But, over the next three years, at least 38 more were added to the list of those murdered, which includes writers, publisher, foreigners, religious minorities and LGBT rights activists. There have been reports about alleged IS involvement, and last week, the security forces launched a drive that resulted in the arrest of 194...

The Orlando bloodbath in the USA and the “Muslim factor”

Hasan Ferdous।। When I first saw the news flash scrolling at the bottom of my TV screen, my first thought was, please God, not another Muslim!  With Donald Trump waging his own “jihad” against Muslims – all Muslims, including those who are American – I was hoping that the shooter was from another religion, any religion but Islam. My hope turned into a nightmare when the shooter was confirmed not...

Islam vs. terrorism: Muhammad Ali

Shah Husain Imam।। Few men were rewarded and vindicated in their lifetime as Muhammad Ali had been. Such a man of action was he in professional boxing, against discrimination and for truth and justice that there would be little posthumous by way of honouring him. Fewer still come through as a man of substance dawning deeper and deeper on the consciousness levels of people after his death as he did. But more than that, as...

Golden rice revealed as the malnutrition fighting crop

Dr. Bjorn Lomborg।। Over the past two decades, Bangladesh has remarkably managed to feed an increasing population better - the UN's Food and Agricultural Organization estimates that in 1993, the average Bangladeshi had access to just 2,000 calories per day, whereas today that number has increased to 2,450 calories per day. To a large extent, this success comes on the back of ever-higher rice production - rice makes up 70...

English vs Bangla debate

This refers to the recent online hue and cry over the English medium vs. Bangla medium education debate. I do not think English medium schools offer superior education. I think all education systems in our capitalistic world are fundamentally flawed. Education should be about enlightenment, it should focus on helping us know ourselves, have better relationships, and navigate more efficiently through life, instead of focusing on...

Who's responsible for the deaths in UP elections - 2016?

Mohammad Badrul Ahsan।। Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote more than two hundred years ago that worse than a bloody hand is a hard heart, and the English poet had as if meant it to be an early indictment of the Chief Election Commissioner of Bangladesh. The chief custodian of our electoral process has presided over the bloodiest elections in this country's history. More than a hundred people have died and many times more that number...

What happens in a university run by IS?

Almost exactly two years ago, Iraq's second biggest city, Mosul, was overrun by the forces of so-called Islamic State (IS). But since then, the city's university, has remained open most of the time. This has raised questions about whether it has been kept open to provide a facade of normality, or whether it was being used to develop weapons, including for chemical warfare. But there are clandestine networks of Mosul...

Mossad link in Bangladesh politics

Abdul Mannan।। Many people in Bangladesh would not have heard the name of Israeli secret service Mossad. Founded on December 13, 1949 immediately after the State of Israel was carved out of Palestine, Mossad is the national intelligence agency of Israel and one of the main institutions in the Israeli intelligence community, along with Aman (military intelligence) and Shin Bet (internal security). It is responsible for intelligence...
