Arson attack is a terrible form of violence gifted to us by the politicians. A few days ago their agents torched a bus at Shahbag and in a few minutes, 19 lives were changed forever. They were ordinary people who probably were returning home after a hard day's work. When we are used as mere cannon fodder to achieve political agenda, where is democracy?
In all circumstances, it is the commoners who are the expendables, who will die and be burnt. It is our lives which are being sacrificed and used, while these politicians go on surviving and holding us hostages. It is an obvious truth that the political parties of Bangladesh do not think of our well-being. They have their personal and political agenda to fulfil and we are used as pawns.
