Shame on BCL

The day the whole nation expressed solidarity with the demand for capital punishment of Rajakars, a disgraceful incident took place in Barisal that put the nation to shame. Some activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League physically assaulted Prof Shankar Chandra Dutt of BM College when the newly appointed principal went there to take charge. A principal of a reputed college of our country was assaulted and humiliated publicly by his own students! Shame! Shame on you, BCL; shame on all of us that we let this happen.

We don't care who these men are; we don't care which party they belong to; we just want them to be punished. They may have done many other horrid things in the past, but they must not get away after disrespecting a teacher. As a nation we must respect our teachers and punish those who do not.

The prevailing political culture has spawned such ugliness in our society. The culture of hooliganism is being sustained by our political leaders. No wonder these goons have taken over the way of life in Bangladesh today. Because, their behaviour is rewarded by their political bosses. These goons need to be thrown behind bars for life so that they don't get to see the light of the day. Only, then will these unruly behaviour cease.
