Huntington’s ‘The Clash of Civilizations’ as theory suffers uncomplicatedness in comprehension, and can generate allurement en mass. For its vertical unpretentiousness, it could be a useful mannequin for foreign policy strategists. It could be misinterpreted which in turn could make world a lesser safe place endangering the human species.
Bangladesh was born in the midst of cold war rivalry, through struggle against colonial rule by freedom loving people. At birth Bangladesh vowed to uphold secularist principle in its constitution but after 40 years it has now lesser people in …

গত সোমবার ঢাকার রাজপথে পরিকল্পিতভাবেই পুলিশের ওপর নজিরবিহীন আক্রমণে নেমেছিল জামায়াত-শিবিরের কর্মীরা। সরকারের গোয়েন্দা সংস্থা, পুলিশ বাহিনীর চোখে ধূলো দিয়ে তারা কেবল রাজপথে মিছিলই করেনি, ব্যাপক তাণ্ডবও ঘটিয়েছে। শক্তি প্রদর্শনের অংশ হিসেবে পুলিশের গাড়িসহ ভাঙচুর করেছে অসংখ্য গাড়ি, আহত করেছে পুলিশ ও পথচারীকে। জামায়াত-শিবিরের এ জেহাদি মূর্তিতে অনেকে বিস্মিত হলেও এটি মোটেও অপ্রত্যাশিত ছিল না। বরং আমাদের চিরচেনা, একাত্তরের ঘাতক-দালালদের উত্তরসূরি জামায়াত-শিবির যে সাময়িক নীরব থেকে বর্তমান সরকারের আমলেই মরণকামড় দেবে, এটা তাদের রাজনীতি সম্পর্কে যাদের সামান্য ধারণা আছে তারা সবাই জানে। অত্যন্ত পরিকল্পিত এ তাণ্ডব তারা এমন সময় ঘটিয়েছে …

The defence team of Croatian general Mladen Markac sentenced to 18 years in jail for war crimes, has lodged an appeal to The Hague verdict, in which it refutes the existence of “joint criminal enterprise” (JCI) formed with intent to permanently remove the Serb population from Krajina area in Croatia.
The appeal argues that the court’s finding of the existence of JCI is based primarily on the transcripts of a meeting conducted on the Croatian islands Brijuni (Brijuni transcripts) that should not have served …

It is possible that Dead Reckoning: Memories of the 1971 Bangladesh War by Sarmila Bose is the definitive impartial account of Bangladesh’s liberation war that the author smugly claims it to be. But if her previous scholarship on 1971 is anything to go by, I wouldn’t count on it.
The reason that I doubt her grandiose and self-satisfied claim is that her previously published work on 1971 is replete with shoddy research and riddled with bias. Indeed, her arguments in her two articles published in Economic and Political Weekly (EPW) on …

We are disturbed by the visible rise, in some parts of the country, of anti-Muslim bigotry resulting in sporadic attacks on Muslims and their places of worship. We deplore this and condemn it unreservedly. However, the authors of the letter you published (Islamophobia is a threat to democracy, 25 March) are quite wrong to equate legitimate concerns about the leadership of the East London Mosque and the Islamic Forum of Europe with anti-Muslim bigotry. To do so betrays those who have genuinely suffered discrimination. The East …
