Last month we have celebrated our 43rd Independence Day. But now we are facing the question of “Are we really an independent country?” This question mainly arises because of the present situation of our country where a particular group is trying to divide us as theist and atheist. In addition, they are trying to make our country like Pakistan or Afghanistan for which they put forward 13 demands. The demands are nothing but a way of turning our nation into a rogue state, where the women will not have anything to say regarding their rights. Most significantly, they do not believe in the independent thoughts of the common people. In this context, it is worthwhile to note that we, the common people, should raise our voices to fix this situation as soon as possible.
