I did not witness what happened in 1971 but here I am, in 2018. Witnessing what the world never did, and I pray, never does.
A war of teenagers, with the government of the country.
The very body that was supposed to protect the future, the backbone of the nation, is upto crippling it. Why? Because they demanded safer roads and vehicles.
This uproar begin after the murder of two young, school going children, Meem and Rajib by a bus who were racing on the main roads. And the humiliation by current Minister of Shipping of Bangladesh who disregarded the matter laughing on it.
This resulted in a movement by high school going teenagers who got on the streets to show the government how roads can be managed, which went quite peaceful and successful until the government released their students body to attack these teenagers.
All these children asked for were 9 pointer demands for road safety, and this is what they got- beaten up by police and pro govt student body. Certain deaths and molestations have been reported too.
Now the point is, if this is how the government body treats the backbone of the nation, who is supposed to protect them?
