“Bring the 1971 war criminals to Justice” – is it a timely demand??




I believe and I feel the Rajakars (War criminals) should have been punished already. But is it the right time now? I know many of you would say that there are examples of war criminals of World Wars been punished after long long time. But my dear brothers and sisters, those were International cases, and were fought among many countries. Many complicated situations were there for which the trial took so long to be implemented. But what about the Rajakars? Everybody knew what they did and also everybody knew/know who they were/are. What took people 36 years to think about the punishment of them? You might say – “better late than never”. But is it acceptable in this case? The demand definitely started from the campaign of our beloved (!!) leaders. Now it has almost become a demand of many of the people in Bangladesh. My question is, why didn’t our beloved leaders and political parties themselves didn’t bring the Rajakars to the justice???? The reason is- all the parties used them as a ladder towards the power.

For last one year, the real faces of our leaders were brought infront of us. Just try to figure out the number of our patriot political leaders currently staying in the jail. Now try to figure out what not these leaders have done!!! Now when both the parties are finding them in trouble they are trying to divert the attention of the current government to something else. Awamileague ruled the country for about 9 years, BNP ruled for about 15 years, Jatiyo party for about 10 years. All of the parties got more than enough time to bring the war criminals to the justice. If these three political parties were really interested in bringing the criminals to justice- they could have easily done that. But their consciousness took 36 years!!! isn’t it mysterious??

Now question might arise, what’s the problem if it is late?? The problem is the the aftermath of the punishment. It is so late that, by this time some of the well known Rajakars are in the top of a big political party. And that party consists of millions of members and supporters (Don’t think I’m one of them ). How will their followers react if they are punished? If there was no emergency now, what would the followers of Khaleda Zea and Sheikh Hasina do? Supporters of BNP and Awamileague would almost bring qayamat in Bangladesh. Why these two leaders are in the jail are known to all. They were engaged in corruption and they influenced corruption and what not else!!! Still their supporters are ready to become martyr for their great (!!) leaders. Things will certainly be same with Jamat-E-Islami. People voted them and eventually sent them to the parliament and to the government also. Still people will vote for Gol*M Az*m and Niz*mi knowing how they participated in the genocide in 1971. The reason is, they got into the veins of the political system of Bangladesh. Punishment of them will lead to more violence and terrorism . A Rajakars son/daughter and relatives are not rajakars. Punishing the Rajakars after 36 years will draw a negative impact on their relatives and also followers. It will reignite the RAJAKARISM inside them. After 36 years of the independence these segmentation/division will bring no benefit to the country if not more harm.

As I mentioned earlier, our political leaders are successful enough to raise our voice in this issue. These leaders are not much behind in the race!!! Just try to calculate what the Bangladeshi people have achieved being a citizen of an independent democratic country. I know it is almost impossible to control emotion in this regard. But emotion can lead to great difficulties. It’s time to progress. We (who ever think alike me) want no more segmentation/division among people. We are already far behind in the race compared to some of our neighbors. We want to raise our nation and mark our position in the developed world.



The above statements are solely my personal views. It is usual that you might have other opinion. Many of us lost our loved ones in 1971. So did I. I can feel the emotion too. I will also support them who demand the punishment, if they ensure that there will be no deterioration in the situation. Can they ensure it? Because, I believe we have got a life to lead. It is my right to think of my future security.


Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

All the websites developed carries a common goal- to be viewed by more visitors and more frequently. When there’s a new product in the market, a very intelligent marketing or publicity is required to attract the desired and potential clients. Same goes with websites. People have to know that you have a nicely designed rich website. Fortunately, the publicity for the websites are not going to cost you anything if you are smart enough to know how to do it.

Search engines are the places where every and almost all the internet users are likely to go through to get the relevant information they are looking for. And the proof of this is the giant Google. The success of google reflects how much people are dependent on search engines. Google is not the only one- YAHOO, MSN, ALTA VISTA and many others are also operating to serve people. Now if you ask “why they are doing so and what’s their benefit” – that will require another article to describe, so lets get back to track. Just think again how much efforts I’m giving in writing this article, and if no one gets through it, it will be totally worthless. That’s the point, I want people to know that I have written something. I need to do something which will allow the search engines to keep the records of the things in my site, and when people will search for relevant info, they will be directed to my article. Search engine will have many results and you will always desire that your article/link should be there in the beginning if not the in the TOP. Its not that by studying more hours than any other students in the class you can score most, you have to apply some technics and also maintain some basic guidelines to get a good score in the exam. Getting in the top in the search engine results also don’t really require any website to be rich in resources. As I mentioned, some technics- some algorithms or some configuration, are required. Now let’s talk something technical !

Wait… I had to attend a final exam this evening, and I am completely exhausted, I’ll be back with the same topic and resume from where I am stopping… In the mean time please go through what google has to say about SEO…

SIDR Rattles Bangladesh!!

The whole country is stunned by the effect of the category-4 cyclone in Bangladesh. The southern part of the country is battered so badly that after one day of its destruction more than thousand are reported to be dead where as the number is surely going to multiply many a times as time progressing. The communication system has not been restored and it is still not accessible to many a parts of the country. The power grids have tripped and the country was literally without electricity for a complete day. The power has been restored in my area at 1 am the next day, 26 hours since it went out. When I went out in last morning I was shivered seeing the aftermath of the storm in Dhaka, where the speed of the air was hardly 100-120 Km/h. I just can’t imagine how the people of the southern part of Bangladesh were feeling where the storm had a speed of more than 240 Km/h. The property loss is going to be much higher than the mortality rate as it is believed that drastic action was taken to save human lives by taking them to the Cyclone shelter. People could hardly do anything to their properties and livestocks. We were in complete ignorance of what happened to the fate of the people of the effected area as there were no electricity. The mobile communication to those area were destroyed. We came to know that the direction of SIDR was towards Dhaka, and it was at 9pm. The cyclone started to hammer Dhaka region at 12 am that night. So the inhabitants were still not prepared for such a disaster. Trees were uprooted, electric lines were tore, advertising boards were shattered throughout the city. This is the situation where the cyclone was way less powerful than what it was in the coastal areas. It is assumed that a huge number of animals also suffered death in the Sundarban region, the largest mangrove forest in the world. The greatest problem lies ahead as people have literally nothing left in their home in the effected ares. They have no home, they have nothing to eat, even if they have stored their food somehow- they can’t cook. They need medical assistance as well. Thousands of volunteers and social workers are trying their best to help the people. We, who can’t lengthen our hands to help them, can atleast pray for the poor people of the effected areas. May Allah give them the power to survive the hurdles.

Traditional NSUFRENDZ Iftaar party!!!

It has been a tradition of NSUFRENDZ (name of our group) to organize an iftaar party every year. The first party took place at Mashook’s (currently residing in Canada) place and that was the first ever g2g of our frendz group. Since then there’s been such a g2g as a form of Iftaar party most of which took place at Asif’s (we call him Khala Asif) place at the rooftop of Concord tower at Bangla motor. This year’s party and the last one held at Ripon’s place at Dhanmondi. We started our journey as university students and now many of us are working at reputed places. Yet they were able to join the party and it was a true fun. We, NSUFRENDZ, feel proud that we are a group which are still intact after getting detached from where we started. Not everybody could make their way this year because of time constraints and other unavoidable reasons. Still many of us were there and they were: Arif (cadet), Asif (Khala), Asad, Musfiq, Mizan, Ripon, Najah, Sharier, Sayeed (Syed Khandakar), Muntasir, Imran and myself obviously. Thanks to Ripon for such a nice evening!!!

A Shocking Story – A great loss…

Original writer: Faiek Fazal (BBA Student, NSU)


Reading the first few lines of this article will probably get you thinking that this is one of those same old boring articles trying to get a point out to the world, blah, blah, blah…. I assure you this is nothing like that. It takes a lot of nerves to sit down right now and write this article. Let me tell you why. I went to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital last night. Not some place anyone would like to go everyday, but unfortunately some of us are unlucky to end up there somehow or another.

Since you already heard the word hospital you can guess this is not going to be pleasant. Well I’m sorry to disappoint you but I have been left with no other choice. Last night one of our respected teachers has passed away. Everyone must go when their time comes, I’m not arguing about that. But how does it feel if that person is a young man in his early thirties? To make things worse he had no physical complications. The reason why he has passed away today is because he was murdered. Yes!! I repeat HE WAS MURDERED. A simple man living his day to day life was returning home, but he was unlucky to become one of the victims of our well known hijackers.

Do you know how people in distress are treated in Bangladesh? Let me help you if you don’t. Mr. Dewan Rahman Khan was a lecturer of North South University. He used to teach us accounting and management. He was a fun loving person. Someone you would love to become friends with and believe me when I say this none of his students will disagree to that statement. He had Iftar with our honorable Vice Chancellor and then took class from 7 till 8:20 pm. After classes he doesn’t roam about but rather goes straight back home. A couple of hours went by and his family members started to worry. His father-in-law went out to search for him. Tragedy struck when he found sir at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

The police said they found him near the army stadium, but there was no reason for him to go in that direction, he lives in Dhanmondi. When his relatives arrived at DMC they found him locked in a room with no doctors or even nurses to aid him. His brothers cried for help. They looked everywhere for a doctor but no one came. The doctors have already announced him dead. His students ran and got oxygen for him. Some of them even said they could feel a pulse, but who cares? They tried to take him out to another hospital, they weren’t allowed. Apparently it’s the law. Funny, isn’t it? We have a law to take a person all the way from Uttara to DMC regardless of whether that person could have survived if he received treatment a few minutes earlier.

Two hours went by and a doctor finally came. But its no use he’s already long gone. Are these people actually doctors? Who gave them their degree? Oh opps maybe they are doctors with a degree and all but you know what I’ll let you in on a little secret. They’re not human beings.

Anyone reading this right now would agree with me right now a person’s life comes above all else. I guess the doctors at DMC disagree with us here. To them its already too late, “what’s gone is gone” I guess. Well what can we do? Nothing I guess. All of us just sat there outside the room and watched as Sir passed away in front of our eyes.

If you haven’t stopped reading yet I suggest you spend just 5 minutes of your life and read the rest of this article. This is a humble appeal to everyone out there – men, women, children, it doesn’t matter. Help us. Help us change the situation of this country.

What would you want to do if your brother, God forbid, passed away. Wouldn’t you want to wash his body and make all preparations for his burial? Poor Mr. Dewan’s family isn’t that lucky tonight. They have to wait till the morning when someone performs an autopsy. Why cant they just do that now? Well there’s no one to do it. Ridiculous isn’t it? Why’d you keep the hospital then? There’s no doctors to attend the patients, there are no doctors to perform an autopsy, there even isn’t someone to get a freaking oxygen cylinder!!

As we stood there weeping. A police van came along. They brought three men in handcuffs. One screaming at the top of his lungs in pain. They were brought here for medical treatment. Now here’s the interesting part. Let me take you through the procedures. The men stood there as the police officers shook hands with numerous people. Then they went and filled up some register books and then everyone just stood there. 20 minutes already gone by. No one came to treat the men. Guess it was too much to ask for or they’re criminals why should they be treated?

As for the people who did this to our beloved sir I hope you’re literate enough to read this. How could you be so cruel? How could you do something so inhuman? You want the cell phone? Take it. You want the wallet? Take it. Take everything for god’s sake, but why do you have to kill someone for it. Doesn’t anyone ever think about the consequences? What will happen to his wife? They were married for just a couple of years. What will happen to his father? His mother? Will all her screams and tears bring her loved one back?

Sir was strangled to death and then dropped in front of army stadium where the police apparently picked him up from. They found spices in his eyes I’m guessing the muggers rubbed it in so that he couldn’t see their faces.

As for NSU Authority congratulations you just lost another great teacher. Because you can not assure a safer transport system for your faculty members which would cost you lesser then half the amount of 1 students semester fee.


I don’t know where I was in last few days… May be I was in Hibernation mood… Anyway, I am back!!! Just a moment ago I came back from the Marriage Ceremony of my friend MILON… So I am a bit exhausted now… Be right back….

Going to Sherpur – My native land

My native land, which we call in bangla as “Dada Bari/Graamer Bari”, is situated in the District of Sherpur. It is among the least popular districts and people often mix it up with Bogra-Sherpur. But the district is very rich in the sense of natural beauty. Few people other than the district people could explore it properly. Those who couldn’t yet figure out where the district is actually situated, It is straight above Dhaka in the map of Bangladesh. It is also a border district neighboring the TURA in the Indian side, and Mymensingh, Jamalpur and Netrokona inside Bangladesh. The distance from Dhaka is about 180 KM, but the distance may vary as there are some other routes other than the main Dhaka-Mymensingh-Sherpur route. The old route was through Tangail-Jamalapur. I still remember the days when we used to go through that route, as it was like a journey with a BUMPER CAR. But the communication is so easy now a days that, I start from the garage of my Dhaka residence, and I get down from the car at the garage of my “Graamer Baari”. “Gazni” is the most well known place in this district, full of hills, forests, picnic spot and a nice lake… I’ll definitely write more about sherpur as I think people should know about this district. But I’ll have to go to bed early because my mother came to my room while I was writing this post and warned me that its me who have to drive the 180 KM distance. Inshallah, I’ll try to write something about my native land while I’ll be at my native land… Till then… Goodbye…

Curfew – Behind the scene…

Last few days were so lifeless that I am feeling I’ve been in the jail for decades. I believe it’s not me only, its the general feeling of all the city dwellers… The impose of curfew by the government has almost stopped the wheel of the country literally. But the question is, whether this is acceptable or not?? Curfew is not acceptable, but the circumstance which brought this drastic decision to be taken by the government is much more responsible for the sufferings of the people. We all are well aware of what happened at DU between the Army men and the students. It is true that the way police reacted on the students was not acceptable, but what about the aftermath? That was nothing but an attempt of deteriorating the situation to such an extent which would further worsen the political situation of Bangladesh. Some of the so called experts mentioned that it was public grief and agony which helped this incident to extend to such a destructive actions which grew because of the uprising in the expenditure of the lifestyles. Was it really true?? Reformation can’t take place without some considerations. We all know that the present government is trying heart and soul to bring the clarity and establish a clean and clear atmosphere in all the sectors of the country. Unlike the traditional politicians the advisers of the current government are from the group of people who led life like us even a year ago and are also well educated and experienced in the sector they are working for. So they really know what really the public demands are and where the fault was… As a part of their cleanup operation one of our great (!!!) leader is in to the custody and another one has almost one step in there too. There is a big number of people who have been sufferer as a result and the incident of the 20th August gave them a chance to take a hand against the government. They are the politicians and they are ready to sacrifice everything (except for their own benefit) for the sake of their interest!!! The thing that happened with the DU students is definitely not acceptable but what happened outside the DU campus is not acceptable either. The flare was supplied by those selfish people who were the sufferer for the drastic actions taken by the government. I believe that these weeds will soon be removed from the society and no more incident like the 20th August (2007) incident will take place in Bangladesh.

NB: All the statements above are solely my personal opinion and it is not unusual that others might have different ideas/opinions.

NSU… Again!!!

It has been more than six years since I got my self engaged with NSU (North South University). The relation has become so deep that I can hardly think of missing NSU life… And probably I’ll not miss it for a couple or three more years… Yes, I have been selected as an MBA student at NSU. After being selected in the written test, it was my viva today. I went to the Business department and was waiting for my turn. At about 11:45 am, i was called into the viva room. I really become very nervous seeing so many people in the room including VC sir, Meshqat sir, GMD sir, JK sir and many more. The continuous bombardment of question destroyed my  moral, and it seemed like i was infront of some hungry lions/tigers and they were about to tear my flesh!!! I planned myself in such a way that I could answer all possible questions, but as soon as i entered the interview room, I almost forgot the reason I went there. They insisted me to set my mindset that I am not going to make it. I was told that the result will be published the next day, and after a very tiring day at the evening when I came to NSU again, I saw the list of the selected candidates for the MBA program. I wasn’t prepared for that, and i wasn’t prepared to see my name in the list either. However, I will keep coming to NSU inshallah… See you at NSU….

My first travel Experience with my friends!!

I didn’t have any travel experience with friends till April 2002. It was my first travel experience with friends and without any guardian. So it was like- bird flapped its wings for the first time to explore a whole new world. As I said there were no guardians and we friends had this tour on our own, it was a total responsibility of us, and this was a very new experience for me. We traveled to Cox’s Bazar, which is one of the most attractive part of Bangladesh to travel. I’ve gone there thrice, but the first time experience is always the unique.

Our first initial destination was Chittagong not Cox’s Bazar. My two other tour partners were Asif and Babu (both of them are school friends). We planned that we’ll go to Babu’s aunt’s residence, but later we had to change our plan and we had to stay at the Hotel in Chittagong. Our train journey from Dhaka to Chittagong was very interesting. We started in the afternoon and reached Chittagong in midnight, as the engine of our train went out of order twice. However, after reaching Chittagong, we felt that we should go to Cox’s Bazar. Initially we thought that we’ll not inform our family. But I couldn’t help saying to my mother. I called her and told that I’m going to Cox’s Bazar. She was a bit worried by I assured her that I’ll maintain my safety. We went to Cox’s Bazar by a Micro Bus, which Babu’s uncle (Khalu) managed for us. Just before we reach the Cox’s Bazar hotel zone, I saw the Bay of bengal for the first time as we were crossing the circle at the new beach. I can’t explain what my feeling was!!! It was a blue endless scene and my heartbeat grew double. However, we checked in to the hotel named -“Bay View”. It was a moderate enough hotel at the beach. In the balcony we had both beach view and also the hills. For two days we explored the beach and also explored what freedom means.

Babu and myself at the Beach

After two days and three night staying at Cox’s Bazar we started back for Dhaka, but didn’t forget to do some shopping. It has been five long years and I have traveled a lot since then, but the splashes of this tour will always remain in my mind…
