Reformation of RAB Should Be Based on Their Types of Operation!
In Bangladesh,recently we are in an uneasy situation regarding RAB,the elite counter terrorism force of Bangladesh.I am not an Security expert but I have the minimum capability to make the deference between Terrorism and Criminal Activities.According to the law the state POLICE force is responsible to handle every aspect of criminal activities inside the country and special counter terrorism force like RAB should handle the Anti-Terrorism & Counter Terrorism activities inside the country.From my study on this issue I have got the following differences between Terrorism and Criminal activities:
• While terrorism as an international phenomenon is a more recent phenomenon, crime has always been there in societies.
• One can deal with criminals through a process of trials in courts and sentencing criminals into prison, it is hard to deal with terrorists as they have a strong motivation to indulge in heinous crimes and never plead guilty even when caught.
• Terrorists are also criminals but they commit crimes against humanity more than against individuals whereas ordinary criminals do it more for their own benefit.
Now how should our law enforcement & security experts and home ministry officials
take adequate steps to resolve the debate on RAB, this is just a matter of their honest evaluation of terrorism and criminology!!!
We the general people are waiting to see their expertise on this unexpected debate inside Bangladesh!...Thanks!
