I have already written an article regarding first step for stopping radicalization in Bangladesh. Today I will try to discuss my thoughts on second step for the purpose.
As Bangladesh is a Muslim majority country, that’s why radicalization is significantly observed in Muslim extreme activities. But it will be of great misfortune, if we only work on Muslim radical groups. There are few extremists from other religions and faiths who are involved in radicalizing Bangladesh.
There are still Hindus, who are extremely believer in their races within Hinduism, same to Muslims, Christians etc. If we look toward Iraq, both Sunni and Shiah groups are fighting against each other; though all of them are Muslims. Same issue available in today’s Bangladesh as well. Most of the people when they meet and greet each other, they behave so sober; but when they leave, their comments are directly opposite. We can not change this attitude overnight, this practice has been grown and developed over decades.
If we go before long long time, then we can know about how some culprits tried to modify the Hadiths of Mohammad slowly and gradually to establish them as the real sayings and acts of the Mohammad. These sort of culprits are still operating to misguide general simple people for their bad intentions. Most of the Maulanas ( called themselves knowledgeable in Islam) are actually not fully knowledgeable in Islam and they motivate and misguide people when and how they think more beneficial. I know some religious leaders who take bribe for misguiding people, they are like prostitute. take money for pleasure of others. But at the end, main sufferers are the general simple public.
Same pictures are equally true for other religions. There are some Bhrahmman (like Maulana) in Hindu religion, if you tell them to attend any program for free or to do anything for the society for free, you will not find any Bhrahmman. It’s all give and take policy they follow. Without money or gift, they will not move their feet a single inch. The more money you give, they will praise for you that much.
All these people are actually insects of the same dust bin. When this group, who are the product of the radicalization process, finds anything is going against them or against their wealth supply chain, they create a scene so that one race fights against another, one religion fights against another and it continues so that they can achieve their actual goal. This is a very common conspiracy theory.
So we have to motivate and clarify others on their bad intentions and stand against it. Without protesting against their ill motives, it’s impossible to minimize the damage done by these radical selfish group.
Where is that Gonojagoron Moncho? Ha, Ha. It’s divided now, isn’t it? It’s all game plan of the political parties and think tanks. We learnt this before. Divide and rule. They are also trapped into that. Some attacks on their activists,targeting some bloggers and all the voices are down? Why?
We are not police, we are not government; though we are supposed to be the owner of the republic democratic government, but we are not. We can not search for these radical groups. We can raise our voice, guide or suggest our authorities or government on these issues. We are always against radicalization and will be against it. We will be protesting against it so that responsible authorities ,who are 99% corrupt, at least bound to take actions against these radical groups for raising our voices.
