political terrorism | The Daily Star
  • In the grip of madness

    Bangladesh's experience with ribald extremism and terrorism is more recent and, so far, has been less painful in terms of mass attacks or casualties. But there has been a slow, but steady gnawing at the very soul of this country.

  • Arguments you cannot brush aside

    The operative words are extremism and terrorism; so what's in a name, terrorism is terrorism. The threats have always been there and to be fair to ourselves some of the major terrorist acts have not seen handing out of convictions to the perpetrators.

  • AFTER THE KISS OF DEATH

    The redeeming feature in these bleak circumstances though, is the Zimbabwe national cricket team's firm indication that they are visiting us next year.

  • Is the wolf just around the corner?

    The nature of the crimes tells us one thing for sure, that these are the work of professional men. Whether those men acted on their own, or on behalf of an extremist group, or a political cartel is critical because that can give us an idea at what rate the fuse is burning to set off explosion.

  • victim support

    Who will compensate the victim?

    Countrywide political terrorism and agitated entreaty of the victims and their family for 'justice' require a revisit whether our 'sentencing policy' and 'penal scheme' are capable of providing them 'just remedy' or widely cherished 'justice'.
