Ethics, morality and justice in politics

People are caught in the middle of politics and government stupidity.

Governance is important


Moral standards of Killing and justice
This has been observed that the number of political killings and arrests during the period of this government have exceeded the number of killing birds in the winter, or criminal killings of any time. Thousands of arrests of oppositions in the name of different suits are also astounding. The recent law suits of War –criminals raised many questions with regard to its standard and due processes, where it has been blamed as partial and under duress. During war time killings and sufferings of innocent public is understandable and it happens where any war is broken out. But who would be held liable when many innocent people are killed in the street by the police and its allied agencies, apart from tortures and intimidation? Would there be any tribunal for those victims during the peace time. It’s a pity that who are formed to protect and safeguard people are killing people. The governmet who are for the people and elected by the people enjoying the killings of those people! How long would it take to get the Bangladeshis civilized? Recent interesting phenomenon in Bangladesh among the riot police we see a good number of tribal men too. Would it be significant point to analyse as we discuss the police behavior!

Ups and downs of Shah-bag movement
More and more it has been depicted by the Shah-bag programs that the total scenario is a ploy set up intelligently by the government think-tank. Very clever and cunning approach to divert the peoples eyes from burning issues of corruptions, unemployment and financial mismanagement, particularly in an election year. People become euphoric at the beginning, later the cover and branding remaining the same but the government parties at the driver seat, raising one after another issues which have blunt support and backing up the government objectives and safeguarding them from the oppositions and people. More interestingly media, both electronic and print, have turned their eyes from the key issues as it flown away with the wind of Shah-bag.

Role of different Medias
The media were deemed to be instructed or under undue influence to take side of the government and the Shah-bag, otherwise they would be considered as ‘Collaborators’ or anti-liberation. Seemingly when innocent people were killed in numbers by police and mercenaries were on the road with police back ups, media seemingly turning blind eyes, thank the Internet where we can witness this in our own eyes. The problem exists there too, the anti-government and anti Shah-bag writings were being deleted and blocked by unknown authorities, that’s why when the links are clicked pages not found. Yet, all the media remains quiet and saying nothing about it. People might think they are under-undue pressure or intimidated by the interested parties. Previously we supposed to get information and news from the newspaper and television channels, no more, now we search for the internet for the real news. This is absolutely information blackout under cover of the Shah-bag protesters.


Government stance:
Teachers and Garments workers had been protesting more strongly and legitimately for their demands lately but their protests and demands were strongly handled and quashed brutally by the police. But the recent Shah-bag protests are welcomed like anything by the government, which is against the law and court of justice. But no contempt of court and no allegation for disturbing public life were raised from any quarter, as if the government party is doing the protests. More interestingly the issues they are changing everyday, seemingly violating the rights of information and freedom of expressions, which only they are enjoying. One might raise the question if we are going to be a one party state! The majority of people in Bangladesh are democratic and peace loving, but the movement is expressing hatred and divisions among the people, which is unsustainable for the long term development and progress of the country. Time is for unity, not destruction and division. Time is for peace not fighting against one another. Government has the pivotal role to play in this case, but it seems not aware of that, or are they doing it deliberately to fish in the murky water!

Political killings and arrests are shameful for certain, a government not willing to admit it is not perfect.

These are 3 qualities that don't exist in politics. One has to accept it as a hazard of a nation

Such issue is often happen in my country too. Hopefully, someday Bangladesh and Indonesia can build good relationship to create the best future together.

I agree, but I am still not a policy maker in my campus.

Now, I am struggling to communicate with some students and lectures who have good willingness to change better.
Perhaps, Mr. Karim would like to suggest me to start the link.

No problem.. We may start doing something that would not interfere our university statutory or regulations much. Say, how would you like to publishing articles in each others' journals. I would be delighted if we could allow our teachers to publish articles on various matters..topics... What do you think?

I still don't know it exactly. I just submit my journal as task of student to institution publisher (In Indonesian language). Probably, you can contact website lipi.go.id. It is research central in Indonesia
