Bangladesh: Women Power

Pakistani blogger Marvi Sirmed visits Bangladesh and comments: “One thing that I could not miss in Dhaka was, women engaged with all aspects of life. Economic activity, intellectual discourse or arts, women are everywhere. Gender segregation practically does not exist. Music is a pet of every household.”

    This is true. Bangladesh is land of cultures and humanity in reality. But the recent surge of ‘Jihad’ is drawing many people of Bangladesh to hard-liners terrorists.

    Bangladesh has hundreds of NGO funded by Muslim countries and Islamist hard-liners. Their motto and aim is to convert Bangladesh a Saria based country. They are parroting without understanding the need of the modern time that we the inhabitants of this sub-continent should remain ourselves far from the ‘ideology’ of Jihad. Jihad was introduced at the when Muslims were a very few in the Arab.
    The people should understand we need jobs, we need to uplift our children to high level of education which will help them to development in science, technology and art .
    By the hard-liners principle what the people will get?The hard-liners principle is an paralyzed ideology, ill virus affected ideology which can only break but can not build.
