Death of democracy



I believe, from now on, January 5 could be observed as the D Day (Death of Democracy) because on that day people of Bangladesh were deprived of one of their fundamental rights and became something like floating debris, as if they did not count any more. Everything is controlled by people who have power; they can turn nights into days and days into nights. The current government has been formed in the most unusual and objectionable manner.
Moreover, most people seem to feel suffocated by the political uncertainty. Hundreds of thousands of people made supreme sacrifice to give us a free land but we are shackled in deep fear and dismay not knowing what the future holds for us.
January 5 election is not acceptable in any sense so an inclusive election under a party-neutral administration must be arranged immediately. People’s right to franchise must be restored.
