Bangladesh: Anwar Hossain and the Military

Mash on the disregard for human rights in Bangladesh, and on the specific case of Dhaka University professor Anwar Hossain, who was taken away by the military in the middle of the night.


  • Priority is always an issue. First let the issue resolved according to law. Let us start from zero and respecting law can be a good one.

    By the way, did not see much comments about the Human Rights in Bangladesh on every Hortal/General Strikes for which I suffered and on Oct, 2006, Aug 21-23, 2007.

    I guess I’ve the right to walk on street, protect my property and work to living. What about if I fight for my right. No one have the right to take away my right. As a non political activist I represent at least 110m people of 150m. Even if I’m alone, I have the rights I’ve mentioned.

    It is also your right as a citizen of bangladesh to make corrupt pay for its action. Current citizen should sacrifice their right for few months/year for rights of their children to come. Sacrifice so that their future is brigther, non-violence and better hope then what last 2 governement offered.
