Categories: South Asia, Bangladesh, Citizen Media, Development, Governance, Law

Faustina Pereira at BRAC Blog [1] protests against a newly promulgated law in Bangladesh which permits forcibly instituting the poor, the shelterless and beggars into “shelter homes” through arrests, and attempts to leave the shelter homes would be a punishable offence. An online petition [2] has also been put up and more than 8,000 people from all over the world have already signed it.
