Bangladesh: Massacre Cannot be Justified

“What do you call it when a group of ‘disgruntled’ BDR soldiers [Bangladesh border guards] started their expression of grievances by open-firing on the commissioned army officers? Mutiny? Rebellion? Revolt? Uprising?” asks Kotha-Chilo. The blogger concludes the post with: “BDR soldiers – now I feel ‘disgruntled’ at your massacre. I wish I had a way to express my ‘disgruntled-ness’.”

    The action cannot be condoned in the matter. But Blogger re read what you your self have said and then called mad. As we stand today 1000 of these disgruntled persons as they call themselves are being called to stand for the missing 200 officers. How then can 1000 of what in all reality is only some or only part of the 1000 people that have committed the crime? When the rule of law decides to man handle the way in which law is prescribed for only some people not all then you can sometimes get what you saw in Bangladesh. There is no way that all 1000 persons can all be guilty but you have already in your statement condemned them all.
    Reading, writing and communicating today is a right for all, but speaking, being understood as well as being worth the time to be heard is a privilege that only some get to experience.
    Now can you tell me what that is called? If you print this or not I have also posted this reply some where else where your comment is looked at as needing a reply.
    Should we condemn them too?
