Muhammad Ali Bukhari from Toronto: A recent expensive new book of 546-pages titled as ‘Bangladesh: Political and Literary Reflections on a Divided Country’, published from Peter Lang International Academic Publishers based in New York, written by Professor Dr. Q M Jalal Khan has entailed the ‘fascist character’ of current government in Bangladesh and reached out to many university libraries around the world, while its second part to be published soon.
According to online largest book seller, the Amazon has described about it that, Bangladesh is now divided as ‘our’ country and ‘their’ country. This division has been solely created by the critically close to authoritarian and exclusionary Awami regime―belligerent and BNPhobic. Also, it is a detailed account of the divided Bangladesh, where there has been a near-total suppression and extermination (since 2009) of the political opposition, BNP. It is a recount of the horror and terror resorted to by the regime addicted to governing the country through a process of complete politicization and criminalization of all the branches of the state. Being a descriptive narrative of the regime’s abuses of state tools and agents, the volume launches a crusade against the nearly autocratic and despotic one-party government, boastfully bragging about its denial of moral, political, and economic corruption and its obstruction of the democratic rights of the opposition.
