The child that came to this world in this very moment, if born somewhere in Bangladesh, probably will cry out loud for the first time from the sound of gunfire. His or her security should have been the responsibility of the world. But unfortunately, it's the responsibility of his country which is in serious trouble. If it was sometime in the 1940's, it probably shouldn't have been said. But it's the 21st century and the nations are united now, technologically and morally. But the second part is probably not true. Because if it was, Bangladesh should have received some help from the outside nations. Why? What happened to Bangladesh again? Oh! is it the building that collapsed, or is it one more day of strike? No, it's not. There are people dying in here. They are not trapped under a collapsed building, they are trapped inside the politics of envy among the people who are now and once were the ruling class. Hundreds of people died during the ongoing protests against the government. What happened this Sunday was nothing but shameful. Three activists of the Opposition party were injured in the attack by ruling party supporters at the Supreme Court premises. A female lawyer was beaten brutally.
The people of Bangladesh are afraid to go out for their daily activities. They are uncertain whether they can return home safely. The people who seats in the parliament to protect their nation and its inhabitants has come down in the roads to beat them instead.
It's high time someone turned their attention towards Bangladesh. Not for the sake of democracy, not for the sake of the nation's pride, but at least for the sake of the next child to born. Please help us.
Well, who am I to say all these? I'm just another restless soul in search of the freedom to live in a better and safe tomorrow.
