Atiur Rahman cries “Crocodile Tears”
Ashif Entaz Rabi
Finally the Governor has managed to do two things. He has resigned and cried out two drops of tears. Just these two drops has caused us to lose all our logical sense. We are now busy to prove that the Governor is not human, but a saint. Some people have taken it one step further. They are saying, the Governor is a Rabindra Sangeet fanatic. Therefore he is not the one to blame.
If the educated society of a nation surmises that a person cannot be guilty just because he likes Rabindra Sangeet, I can see no hope for that nation’s liberty. Rabindranath himself would have fled the country if he had heard this.
Money has been stolen from the Bangladesh Bank. The head of the bank must take responsibility for this. Even if the bank had been Bharat Bank, Nepal Bank or Swiss Bank instead of Bangladesh Bank, the primary responsibility of the theft would have fallen on the shoulders of the bank head.
Resignation and tears do not amount to 10 crore dollars. We need an impartial investigation. To ensure the unbiased nature of this investigation, the highest post holders of the bank must remain suspended from work until further notice, so that they do not affect the investigation.
No one can be considered above suspicion until proven otherwise. From the bank guard to the Governor, no one is above suspicion. Especially, Mr. Governor has to answer the following question:
1. When and where did he find out about the theft?
2. How many days had passed since the incident when he found out?
3. Who informed him?
4. What did he do after finding out?
5. Whom did he inform of the theft?
6. What is the reason behind not informing the Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Detective Agencies?
7. What is the explanation behind telling the Finance Minister a month after the incident?
8. What did the Finance Minister do after knowing?
And many more questions like these.
Rabindra Sangeet can be played in the background while these questions are asked. However, it is very important that these questions are asked.
Blindly trusting someone will make us infinitely blinder. The light will not be seen. 10 crore dollars is not an easy matter.
And I want to know the exact calculation of each paisa of this money. Where did the money go, who took it, how they took it, who are the people involved, I want to know every detail.
I also want to know the Finance Minister and Prime Minister’s roll in this. It’s the saddest thing that the Finance Minister himself found out about this incident from the newspaper. I am not giving up my fair share.
