If you are one of the few people who haven’t seen the pictures, see them here.
First we heard that Faruq was bad-mouthing the police.
Then we heard that he was assaulting the police.
A Member of Parliament is brutalized in front of the Parliament building, and yet the Speaker won’t let opposition MPs speak on this issue.
And today, our honorable Prime Minister told us he was vandalizing vehicles.
Lies, lies, and lies. How can there be normal politics in a country when one side is led by a habitual liar?
We all understand and expect political spin. But not lies.
And, we need to make a law that no members of political parties or student political organizations, whether JCD, BCL, ICS, or others, can join BCS, police, army, or any other government service. They cannot work as government teachers, doctors, or lawyers.
We need to start looking for solutions to the underlying structural problems. Outrage and indignation can only take us so far.
