Eliminating a Social Menace
Nowadays stalking (popularly known as eve teasing) has become a major problem for the female members of our society. It is making their lives very insecure. Unfortunately, a segment of male members in our society has always been involved with this heinous act without any fear of repercussions. The shocking fact is that a considerable number of these men are actually from educated families. Nevertheless, the culprits who stalk young girls should get exemplary punishment. If we let the menace of stalking or sexual harassment on streets grow, it will virtually stop all forms of progress in our society. Women of all ages should raise their voice against this crime, instead of being afraid.

On Madrasah Education

I am writing this letter to congratulate Saad Adnan Khan for his wonderful Spotlight entitled 'Slates, Smiles and Ambitions' published on July 8, 2012, in Star Campus. I have found the story very well written and well researched. The story mainly dealt with the state of education in madrasahs and I could very much relate to the story since I, myself, had been a madrasah student. The cover photo of the issue with a young madrasah student holding his slate made me nostalgic about my days in madrasah. I believe if necessary steps are taken by the authorities concerned, we can improve the standard of education in madrasahs to a great extent.

Words of Praise!
I want to congratulate Star Campus team on the occasion of their 6th anniversary. Star Campus has amazed us with a number of remarkable articles throughout its six years of publication. I especially liked the Spotlight named 'The Charm of Greeting Cards' dated September 2, 2012. I wish the magazine will continue its legacy of publishing innovative articles in the coming future as well. I want to thank the editor of Star Campus and the young writers who run this youth magazine. For all the young writers and readers, I hope they can go beyond their imagination and discover new heights of success.

Politics for a better Bangladesh
We all know that for an effective democracy, both the ruling and opposition parties need to play an active role in national politics. However, in Bangladesh, both the major parties are more interested in realising their narrow interest rather than working for national issues. Another shameful trend in the political parties is to use their student wings as mercenaries against their rivals. Most of the members of these student wings are not even students. I believe that if the political parties in our country practice democracy among themselves and let young, enthusiastic political leaders flourish, we will definitely get a better Bangladesh.
