Bangladesh

We have often praised the Bangladesh police for its hard work and dedication to keeping us safe, especially since the deadly terror attacks of last year, but a recent revelation points to a worrying trend.

 

Earthquakes are some of the most unpredictable of natural disasters that any country can face.

 

The announcement of the metro rail project MRT line-6 nearly four years ago was a sign that Bangladesh was steadily seeing the promises of Vision 2020 come to fruition.

 

Bangladesh is ridding itself of the effects of the 1971 civil war. On Monday night, the police arrested the top leaders of the country’s Islamist party, Jamaat-e-Islami.

 

With a staggering Tk119,000 crores in accumulated default loans, it is about time that the government took a long hard look at the banking industry.

 

With Purbachal being the country’s largest township plan, it has the potential to truly improve residential living for the people of this country.

 

An array of challenges face Bangladesh today, ranging from urgent to enduring and entrenched problems, from the refugee crisis to rampant corruption at all levels of government and even society, from militancy to climate vulnerability.

 

Myanmar has tentatively agreed to take back the Rohingya under certain conditions. But this is nowhere near enough.

 

 

Although the Rohingya refugees who have fled across the border to Bangladesh are overwhelmingly Muslim, there is a small minority of Hindus among them, and their accounts of the horrors encountered at the hands of the Myanmar army are similar to everyone else’s.

 

Let us remember that there is much beauty in diversity, and compulsion in.
