Interviewed by Lipe Parven Written by Afrida Ahmed
The future of the country’s politics is dependent on how the Rohingya issue will be tackled. Economist, researcher and development worker Dr. Badiul Alam Majumder gave such a reply when he was asked about the fate of Bangladesh’s politics in the year 2025. He made this comment in a recent interview. While explaining this, he said that there are many aspects to the Rohingya issue such as human aspects, economic aspects, geopolitical aspects and safety aspects etc. It has turned out to be very challenging for the socio-economic aspect of the country. Geographically, Bangladesh is in such a position that on one hand we are blessed and on the other hand we are cursed on some issues. Four lakh Muslim Rohigyas have fled from Myanmar and have taken shelter in this country as refugees. Many people are now sympathetic towards them due to their miserable and helpless circumstances. Dr. Badiul Alam Majumder thinks if Rohingyas start living in this country permanently, then at one point they might become competitive towards the people of this country which could turn into some serious conflicts.Alongside, he also mentioned about the current situation in Syria. When Asad government tried to tackle anti government slogan in some schools that later turned into a matter of internal violence. Afterwards, International forces were also involved in this civil war. As a result, in this way a country progresses towards destruction.
