The front-page report on the matter, published in the pages of a local English daily on August 22, is a very serious matter. One usually associates illiterates and criminals who tend to ignore court orders, but not responsible public and private organisations as such. From the report, and two other reports published alongside, it seems that private organisations like BGMEA and BGFEA too have disregarded court directives! The same is the case with public and private educational institutions too! It only reflects the indifference of the management of these large number of institutions, who think nothing of flouting court directives!
These guidelines were laid down by the High Court on May 14. Till date over three months have gone by, with no compliance from anyone! This indifference shown by the government departments, autonomous bodies and educational institutions, reflects sadly on the state of affairs in Bangladesh; where lawlessness has permeated to the highest level! Small wonder, breaking the law has become a common and everyday matter in our so-called civilized culture!
