A festering wound
Among many bad things, General Ershad did one good that I always remember. He dissolved his Jatiya Party's students' front. I don't want to dig the background of the dismantling, I just want to consider the deed itself. This clicked to my mind while I was reading the article captioned “Thorn in Hasina's crown.”
I label policies of political parties entailing student front as the most damaging for country's healthy future. Students who are involved in politics are in the age group of early twenties. At this age they are supposed to be awfully busy with their studies and in consolidating their learning to prepare for ensuing career or for someone to go for higher studies or do researches, so that they can enlighten themselves as well as society.
But instead they, the student activists of political parties, are harming themselves and society and polluting the whole educational environment of the country. Peace loving students who are in good senses are failing to derive anything from their respective institutions due to malicious activities of their own so called class-friends. Some argue that banning the student fronts of political parties will lead to crisis of future leaders. There should be an in-depth debate in the National Assembly to resolve the issue.
I appeal to our Honourable Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina-- please take an initiative for the debatethe debate should reflect individual views without any party infused views and create an environment in educational institutions which is truly knowledge oriented. This initiative can set your administration free and pave the way to undertake the activities needed to materialize your envisioned Digital Bangladesh.
