Assault on Freedom
This page is dedicated to the assaults on freedom both home and abroad. Because I believe that every single assault on freedom is an assault on every person who cherish Liberty . People who so patiently followed me I hope you will get some real pieces from here and never forget to leave a thought…
Mr.Roni and his personal soldiers
The july 20th newspapers came with the news that reminded (again) the people of Bangladesh – when you try to unveil the truth which are disturbing for politicians, rods and spikes will be there prepared for you. Member of parliament Golam Moulana Roni, unleashed his pack of cadres, which are more like personal soldiers, on journalists of independent tv (a private satellite channel). The victim journalists were Imtiaz Sony (reporter) and camera crew -Muhasin Mukul, who was in a very critical stage. A mentionable thing is that both of them worked for an investigation episode named- Talash, where the corruption in the society, injustice done to innocent people , social crimes were focused in an investigative way. In a country were corruption and crime is the essence of politics, no doubt Mr. Roni was seeking revenge on the people who might unveil his demonous face to the mass. And did I forgot to tell you that this guy had a previous record of threatening and torturing journalists of Prothom alo and Amardesh, when those reporters were working on the land grabbing episode of Mr. Roni.
It is a serious assault on freedom and liberty. But are these stories anything new here??… of course not. Here money and power have poisoned every establishment in the society including law enforcements. Human rights violation is regular here. Liberty is not valued as it should be in any civilised state.
Just after the incident senior journalists had expressed their protest against this member of the parliament and media boycotted him. Ministers got a little bit nervous and they gave their ‘word’ that justice would be served. But how much can we really rely on their ‘words’??how much can we hope to see that justice is served???…. Because people here are well accustomed about the worthlessness of the ‘words’ of politicians, after the end of the day which remains nothing better than just words.
