Bangladesh: Islamic Student Movement

Unheard Voices links to an article on Hizbut Tahir, which it brands as the Islamic Student Movement in Bangladesh, provoking an interesting discussion in the comments space. “Also, we can complain as much as we want about brainwahing, but there is a qualitative difference between the stereotypical youth fundy of yesteryear – uneducated, rural, lower-income, marginalized, raised in madrasah, susceptible to indoctrination – and the profile of the new activitists described in the article – educated, urban, from the mainstream, and high income.”
