How Trump Won: The Revenge Of Working-Class Whites

For the past 40 years, America's economy has raked blue-collar white men over the coals. It whittled their paychecks. It devalued the type of work they did best. It shuttered factories and mines and shops in their communities. New industries sprouted in cities where they didn't live, powered by workers with college degrees they didn't hold. They were not the only ones who felt abandoned by a rapidly globalizing economy, but...

Deepak Zazia ||  from J&K Some people have been using deaths of terrorists as an instrument of showcasing strength in the Kashmir valley. This scripted strategy supported by internal and external forces is aimed at derailing the process of peace and development. Exposing such elements and strengthening the nationalist voices is the biggest challenge before the State and Centre. Amid widespread violent protests, arsons...

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...

Blame Game Won't Solve It

Dhaka:: Strong intelligence gathering, professionalism of law enforcers and thwarting of the ideological roots of militants could prevent future militant attacks, security experts said yesterday. They also suggested uniting people irrespective of cast, creed and political affiliation against militancy and creating awareness among people. Security analysts also advocated stopping the political mudslinging and blame game after such...

When the Santhals rebelled

Moyukh Mahtab || “It was not war; they did not understand yielding. As long as their national drum beat, the whole party would stand, and allow themselves to be shot down. Their arrows often killed our men, and so we had to fire on them as long as they stood. When their drum ceased, they would move off a quarter of a mile; then their drums beat again, and they calmly stood till we came up and poured a few volleys into them. There was...

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...

A Mind Blowing Open Letter Of A Love Jihad Victim

I’m a Delhi girl, & he belongs to Pune. I met this guy in college. He was sweet, polite, & had a charming quality about him. As we spent time together, we became close friends, & started dating. But my friends were always wary of him. And they being typical superficial jerks that all friends are, claimed that I could do a lot better given the vast differences in our personalities. His financial background, his looks, the way...

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 is democracy, If our democracy could talk, what would it say"?

Sushmita S. Preetha।। Does our democracy bleed when 12 people are killed in just one phase of UP elections? Does it reek of half-rotten flesh of the masses, of mouldy dreams and broken promises? Does it feel ashamed, weary, angry, when, in its name, school children are shot dead, and youth tortured, in broad daylight, shamelessly, unapologetically, with impunity? When, in its name, more than a hundred are reportedly killed in the...

Bangladesh reaching towards mono-culture of “purity” trend

Atiqur Rahman।। In recent years Bangladesh turned into the hub of Islamic fundamentalism; seriously threatening its previous entity and established neighbor Pakistan, Maldives or Afghanistan in such business. The growth of fundamentalism in a country does not happen in overnight. It takes long process, political corruption, political dating with religion and try to be in power by hook or crook.  The world has seen the...

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...

Radical BNP & jihadist mindset

Smriti Sen Gupta || Mendi N Safadi, member of Israeli Likud Party & Chief of International Diplomacy and Public Relations is now a name that has suddenly grabbed spotlight of Bangladeshi media. He is portrayed as ‘an official’ of Mossad who hatched conspiracy with a leader of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), sitting in New Delhi, India, to unseat the government of Sheikh Hasina in Bangladesh. This conspiracy theory...

Minorities’ persecutions perspectives from ending British regime to now

Birendra Nath Adhikary।। Historically, in specific, starting from the ending of British regime in the Indian sub-continent, the geographical part of present Bangladesh has become a fertile land of persecution on the religious minorities. The proposition of independence in early 40s of the Indian sub-continent based on 2-nation theory was the blander most to make this land ever vulnerable of communal incidents between people of...

Murder of Nikhil Joarder : Four points to ponder

Ali Riaz || The brutal killing of Nikhil Chandra Joarder on Saturday is yet to draw much attention of the international media, or engender an outrage in the social media, particularly compared to previous murders in Bangladesh. The modus operandi of the attack and killing is identical to the spate of killings perpetrated in the past months. The IS has claimed responsibility for the killing via Twitter according to media. The...

Gandhi's experiment with celibacy

Dr Radhasyam Brahmachari || It is well known that Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the most trusted and the most loyal stooge of the British crown, served the British interest through his Satyagraha or the nonviolent freedom struggle. But most of the people of this country, who take him to be a man of high moral, do not know what short vile lechery he indulged in in the name of keeping Brahmacharys or celibacy, or in experimenting with the...

I am a Pakistani Hindu

Sanjeev Newar ।। I don’t know what my bigger crime is. That I am born in Pakistan. Or I happen to be Hindu. Since beginning of civilization, my ancestors had been nurturing this western part of India with their blood and sweat. When British overpowered us, they sacrificed their lives with slogan of Jai Hind to realize our dream of independence. But then suddenly things changed. Some intellectuals held round table...

Even if you don’t like India, here is why your best bet is to integrate J&K with India.

Chetan Bhagat || Dear Kashmiri friends (the ones who don’t like India), I write in this open forum because something terrible is happening in the Kashmir Valley. The recent events at NIT Srinagar only brought the situation to national attention. Some students burst crackers when India lost the T20 semi-final. Many students were beaten for raising the Indian flag. Thereafter, bloody clashes have broken out in north Kashmir. I...

The Politics of Bangladesh’s Genocide Debate

DAVID BERGMAN || In 1971, Bengali nationalists and the people of what was then called East Pakistan waged a war of independence against the Pakistani Army. The conflict culminated in the birth of a new nation, Bangladesh. The war, which lasted nine months, was a brutal one: Depending on the source, some 300,000 to three million people were killed, and millions were displaced. There is no question that there were many atrocities,...

Diminishing Hindu Population in Bangladesh from the Perspective of Ethnic Cleansing: A Conscious Unawareness?

Samir Kalra || “The dead, it is said, do not live to tell the tale, but this is not true in ethnic cleansing. The dead do tell the tale; it is the living who are reluctant to speak.“ – Horowitz, 2001. A bitter fact in today’s Bangladesh is that the Hindu population is dying out. The narrative that describes the vanishing Hindu minority, which once comprised 31% of the population in 1947 and dwindled to a meager...

Bengali Hindus in Muslim-majority Bangladesh

GARGA CHATTERJEE || The ‘Partition’ was swift and vicious in the Punjabs and Sindh where religious minorities have ceased to exist for all practical purposes. This is not so in the Bengals, where many still live on their ancestral land Few moments in the past century have evoked as much hope in its stakeholders as the emergence of the secular nation-state of Bangladesh in the eastern part of the subcontinent. That nation is...

Banglastan: Do Hindus Have A Future In Bangladesh?

 PALASH GHOSH || In the wake of chaotic and disputed parliamentary elections in early January, the Hindu minority in Bangladesh finds itself in an increasingly perilous position in a country where they are overwhelmingly outnumbered by Muslims.
