Prof. Abul Kashem Fazlul Haque, Academic : Students taking part in the quota reformation movement have come under attack. The society would definitely not condone this. But where will the students get an answer for this unprovoked attack?
The students’ demand is just and fair. However, the prime minister is not acknowledging it. Now we have to wait and see whether she makes any further comments. Recently at the Parliament, the minister said those who are making “reckless” protests in the name of quota reform, are doing it all to stop everything. But would ordering to stop everything really fix anything at all? Thus a committee has been formed, and it is to be seen what assessment it comes to. Yet, the BCL attacked the reformists. even before the committee gave its recommendation. The university must say something about this. Is there anything else that can be done? I do not think so.
A just movement will always be supported. The movement was on the right path, but attacking the Vice Chancellor’s premises was reprehensible. Based on an interview by Ashiq Rahman, translated by Abrar Hussain
