Fas­cist Reign

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL -

The ar­ti­cle, ‘The Path of Fas­cism’ proved to be a real eye-opener as it pro­vided a no-holds-barred look at how democ­racy was sti­fled in Bangladesh and how the peo­ple of coun­try are forced to suf­fer at the hands of po­lit­i­cal lead­ers who are un­able to see be­yond their vested in­ter­ests. I am a stu­dent of po­lit­i­cal science and, dur­ing my stud­ies, I have come across nu­mer­ous cases sim­i­lar to such cir­cum­stances. Yet, it never ceases to amaze me how some peo­ple, who claim to be sons and daugh­ters of the soil, can prove to be so ruth­less and self­ish.

What sad­dens me is that, in the end, the true suf­fer­ers of this en­tire mess turn out to be the cit­i­zens of the coun­try. They are the ones who have to bear with cat­a­strophic de­ci­sions and ac­tions of the par­ties in power. One can only hope that things will even­tu­ally get bet­ter.
