Leaders must know...

Often it is heard that some of the leaders of the BNP-Jamaat led coalition government say that the media are maligning country's face in the outside world. I found them very inexperienced about the present fast world where one can have all information within a moment from any part of the world. The 21/8 attack on AL's rally, targeting its main leader Sheikh Hasina, was widely covered in CNN, BBC and newspapers of the world. I myself saw the news on Markiza TV and some TV channels in Slovakia. Thus, many a time I saw news like, for example, "a child was sold by its mother in Bangladesh". Who came here from Bangladesh to publish this news? Who came here to disclose that one professor in a university in Bangladesh was stabbed to death? Who came here to give the news of the attacks on Dr. Humayun Azad?

The politicians should know that the world is now highly developed in information technology.
