Two different situations

I have gone through the article “Egyptian tragedy and lessons for Bangladesh” by Barrister Manzoor Hasan. I beg to differ with the author. The intervention by the Egyptian army in ousting the democratic government is the reason for the present political impasse. But the situation in Bangladesh is totally different. Here a democratically elected government is in power and soon it will relinquish its position. Then who will remain in power till a new government is formed through elections is the question of the day. It is too early to predict any untoward incident in the present context. The two main political parties are yet to start any dialogue and if such a dialogue fails then a critical situation may arise. Please do not undermine the people of Bangladesh. They know what to do in such eventualities. Those who never dream of coming to power through popular votes would think of army takeover.
