I fully endorse Ahmed As Sami's letter entitled "Exemplary act of a traffic officer" published in your daily dated November 5, 2012. Recently, we saw photo clippings in The Daily Star of activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatra Shibir vandalising vehicles, setting motorcycles on fire, hurling brickbats at police and vandalising police van, etc. We saw picture of a Jaamat activist hitting a cop with the rifle snatched from him.
We must appreciate the patience of the policemen while on duty. They could have retaliated, but they kept cool. What a great sense of responsibility and dedicated service to the nation! It's about time we saw such good things from also others in responsible position in our country. Hats off to Bangladesh Police Force. These police officers should be given letter of appreciation and rewards by the authorities concerned.
