Jamaat's mindset

An acquaintance of mine went to appear for an interview for the post of medical officer in one of the hospitals owned and managed by the Jamaat supporters. He was asked many questions from medical sciences which he could answer properly, and then he was stricken with the ultimate question. He was asked a specific difficult question about a religious practice which an ordinary person would not be able to reply. A Jamaat supporter might have replied it correctly. That doctor was disqualified. The appointing authority wanted to make sure that they were recruiting a man of their choice This story is true for all the outfits owned overtly or covertly by that party. They are a state within a state, a country within Bangladesh. It's very difficult to penetrate their minds. Devoid of any logic, they act like being 'possessed' by some spirits, keep on destroying our culture, society and people.

It's high time that they are identified and isolated.
