Where's the end of such man-made tragedies?

The fire in the garment factory took place when Bangladesh has been trying to change its image in the global market of readymade garments. Frequent incidents of fire would cause a negative impact on RMG exports in the near future. It's a matter of concern for our leading export sector.

Now the factory owners should start thinking seriously of how they can recover their images! I am sure they will do it. But do they know that Bangladesh's garment workers are the hardest working women and men in the world? These poor people are the most exploited and lowest paid in the world.

Poor workers have always been the victims because no guilty rich factory owners have so far been punished for their negligence towards the lives of the poor working people. Factory owners belong to the ruling class and always get the support and sympathy of powerful groups.

Over 100 people were burned to ashes in a moment! This is murder. Don't their lives have any value? Where is the end of these man-made brutal tragedies? Exemplary punishment of the guilty rich owners is the only way to make them sensitive towards the lives and livelihood of the poor workers.
