While this mass hysteria is on the way to a cure and elimination for the time being, we should start talking about another mass hysteria that has apparently effected the whole nation. As a result of the above mentioned mass hysteria victims suffered from bodily pain, seizure, headache etc. But this other kind mass hsyteria effecting the whole nation is presenting as hallucination and delusions. The mass hysteria effected Bangladeshi nation is hallucinating that current ruthless military government is the ultimate savours and the great emancipator. Their hysteric support for the disguised military government has reached such an extreme that they have lost their sense of judgement and rationale. However it is expected that the nation will recover from the mass hysteria quite rapidly.
