Perhaps it is nobody but the fireflies that will light to mourn the victims of the political unrest of Bangladesh. It is expected from nobody to remember the names or the faces of the unfortunate innocents. The country is entitled to practice democracy where the political parties are nothing but violent among each other. Politics has been made synonymous to business here. The forever long last of power among the governments, have drowned all political parties in vein. Power has become money and the source of all troubles.
After a 9 month long war for liberation against Pakistan, Bangladesh emerged as an independent country in 1971. Soon after, in 1975, Sheikh Mojibur Rahman, known as the father of nation to all, was assassinated. Gradually the politics in Bangladesh shaped towards complication. Ziaur Rahman took the power in 1975 and upheld the ban on Jamaat-e-Islami. It allowed the leaders, who were directly involved with the west Pakistani army, in the genocide of Bangladesh to freely practice politics in the country.
The ruling party, Bangladesh Awami League has recently started war crimes tribunals to prosecute the suspects of the genocides in the liberation was of 1971. The major suspects have been found to be as the alliances of the political parties such as Jamaat –e–Islami Bangladesh and Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP). In 2013, the oppositions did not take part in the parliamentary election due to the demand of caretaker government for an interim period to conduct the election neutrally. The opposition parties are still on the street to fight for a new election under a caretaker government. They have been continuously calling strikes and blockades throughout the year. Petrol bombs, cocktail and flammable substance are regularly throwing on public buses, trains, other vehicles – innocent people are getting injured or killed on those attacks. The political parties are yet to take any responsibilities whatsoever of the subversive activities against the innocents.
