Dear Bro, With respect I would like to show the truth, People of BD were dying for independence even mujib become a leader. Only extra ordinary skill mujib had was his charismatic capabilites of preach. It people of BD who made Bangabhandhu. His 7th march preach one the best in the history human kind.
It was the people who fight for liberation not a single member of Mujib. But alas after liberation they started to think that BD is his father's property!! What happen after that I hope you also know How many opposition leaders were killed, How rokki bahini looted everywhere His govt seeded the deep rooted seed corruption in Bangladesh that people Bangladesh will never enjoy the freedom they brought by their blood.. What are talking about most difficult 3 yrs???

More observers say Bangladesh's economy is better than the years before as it exports garments, alleviating poverty and the like. On the opposite it comes out the mass fret over prices of essentials, chronic outages in the excruciating summer, slump in flow of remittances, arson in the garment factories, corruption and so on. How to believe Bangladesh has well economy. Confrontation over the next poll is no doubt eminent if the provision of neutral caretaker government is in place.
Rivalry between two large political parties is not merely for power, immense ideological difference made strife too.

This is not adapted with man and soil of this country in latest age. Vast majority of Bangladesh people has long been sustained this principle. India is in her support. Political murders, disappearance, raising fear and intimidation are marshaling of Awami plans. However, this is true Bangladesh is in a dangerous path, and more dangerous for Hasina and her party.

Because many misdeeds and failures of BAL government have not been included in the report. You should ask yourself about the left out items! Meantime, be informed that TE does not publish baseless facts as claimed by you. Be rest assured that TE is not scared of publishing news worthy items ever. Make time to go to TE archive--you will surely find news as well as comments on the London riots.
Probably you do not read this magazine regularly. Do you know that you are also unfit to classify the quality of a report published in a newspaper or magazine? Governments come and go interchangeably. But the fate of people remains unchanged. It reflects the image of ugly political phenomenon in the country. We want positive and healthy change for betterment of our bright future. Unfortunately we are living in such a country where every day we see the man-made disasters around us.
Clash among students, deaths by road accidents, killing, kidnap, corruption, lack of electricity, gas, oppression and so on are the scenario of Bangladesh. We want to get rid of these problems or of life.
Probably the almighty creator guides us an alternative way. The problems of Bangladesh are little bit more complicated than they were treated by your reporter and are rooted in a bundle of factors.
The squabbles of the two leading ladies surely are complicating factors but their personalities are the products of a culture that need to be analyzed more carefully and sensibly. The Kolkata-based Hindu elites, who didn't intend to live under the Muslims in Bengal, also supported partition in , according to historians Joya Chaterjee, Sheela Sen and others. Nor did ordinary Hindus wish for a united Bengal, having seen so much Hindu-Muslim violence, particularly during the riots of The United Bengal Movement collapsed under the burden of unshared history.
My mother would often tell us about how she witnessed a Muslim mob killing a Hindu milkman in Kolkata in His identity was his occupation, not his religion. It was bleached white. I wanted to escape Kolkata," my mother recalled. I would mentally compare the fatal wounds on the milkman to the deep scars on the skull of Kalo Chahcha, the male nanny who raised us. He was also knifed and left for dead in front of the jewellery shop where he worked as a gold polisher.
But he survived the attack and escaped to Dhaka. We would run our fingers across the deep scars on his head, his memento of partition. Bengali Muslims were mostly peasants, sharing many traditions with their Hindu and Buddhist counterparts. But most of the landlords were Hindus. Before , Bengal leaders from both communities tried to forge joint political activities and a ruling coalition, including the United Bengal state.
It never materialised.
Haunted by unification: A Bangladeshi view of partition
But the middle class from both communities, willing to work together politically, had built a tradition. After , it became a major political factor as the large Hindu community of East Pakistan joined the Bangladesh nationalist movement. When the United Bengal Movement failed, the young radicals of the Bengal Muslim League secretly formed a group to establish an independent Bengal. The man they thought should lead the movement was the popular firebrand Sheikh Mujibur. Almost immediately after its birth, Pakistan tried to weaken the power of its majority through exclusionary employment policies that used language as a tool.
East Pakistan, where the majority of Pakistanis lived, was told that Urdu, which no one spoke there but which was widely spoken in West Pakistan, was the sole national language. That meant that Bengalis would have no access to jobs, the media or policymaking. The language movement began almost immediately in response, and Dhaka observed its first day-long strike in the summer of The middle class, being the most anxious about jobs, led the movement. It intensified in , when police fired on agitating Dhaka University students, killing four.
The fallen students were hailed as martyrs and language took centre stage in the politics of East Pakistan. The Hindu parties, though supported independence, were not part of the official UF. The Hindus and Muslims of East Pakistan had voted together. But for some, it would be a death sentence, as the Pakistan army, which was then running Pakistan, instead of handing power to the Awami League, began to crack down on Bengalis, in general, and Hindus, in particular. Hindus were treated as Indian proxies and, therefore, as fair game.
And members of the Awami League were not considered much different.

By , when Ayub Khan, Pakistan's army chief imposed martial law on the country, Pakistan was on life support in East Pakistan. In early March , my father, who was the East Pakistan chief of the National Bank of Pakistan, was told he was being transferred to Karachi, in West Pakistan, and was accused of being disloyal. But he went on leave instead, until the Bangladesh war of independence ended in December that year. He would sit for long hours on an unlit balcony, waiting for the dreams he had first dreamed in Kolkata long before to become reality.
Those dreams were never of Pakistan but of Bengal. But my father the banker didn't see a professional middle class reign supreme in Bangladesh after A section of the middle class quickly became a wealthy hyper elite, their alienation from the reality of most Bangladeshis as real as their exclusive upper-class neighbourhoods. Ready-made garments and labour exports have played the biggest role in creating this moneyed class, which was largely based on cheap labour from the villages.
But the villages have changed, too. A new middle class has emerged in the rural areas funded by the remittance economy and positive agro-policies. Their socioeconomic clout can no longer be denied by the political parties, including the current ruling party, the Awami League.

The middle class of the s held many ideals dear, including secularism and socialism, but times have changed and neither has any ideological clout now. Perhaps the curtains fell on this liberal class most symbolically in , when hundreds of thousands of people gathered at Shahbag, next to the iconic Dhaka University campus, to demand the execution of those accused of committing atrocities during the War of Independence. The majority of the accused belonged to the Jamaat-e-Islami party, which had supported Pakistan in It was the largest display of force by a class who swore by the "values of " - secularism, a touch of liberalism laced with socialism and Bengali nationalism.
