We watched in the media how Begum Khaleda Zia broke down at her Gulshan office as she was evicted from her cantonment residence where she had lived for nearly four decades. Whether the eviction was legal or not is not my concern. It is clear that she loved the house very much and that is quite natural.
We have a lot to learn from this incidence analysing related issues. People living on the banks of the rivers Padma, Meghna, Jamuna, and Modhumoti lose their homes very often due to erosion. They are not evicted by the govt. but by the nature's fury. They do not have a second shelter. Now we should realise - how much they are shocked by losing not only their houses, but also their belongings. Even then they live and survive showing much tolerance and praying to Almighty Allah. Normally, they build their houses with their hard-earned money and they cannot complain to anybody, and nobody is there to show sympathy to them.
Begum Khaleda Zia and her party could have set an excellent example by showing extreme tolerance before the Eid that could attract lots of sympathy from all levels of citizens of the country.
