Boots, chhuris and lathis
Saiful Rahman Tapan’s article on the Bangladesh Chhatra League’s activities and doings in Bangladesh, published on May 27, possibly qualifies the venomous organisation to be labelled as boots, chhuris (daggers) and lathis (stick).
The Chhatra League’s sole objective seems to be to carry out all types of violence as, when and where needed.
The Awami League’s promises of fair governance has no correlations to the Chhatra League’s; it seems to be the boots and weapons of the Awami League to trim down any thing not to the tune of the AL leadership’s desires, which are not openly mentionable by the party’s top leadership.
The AL motto for students is to ‘live simple’ and ‘think high’; meanwhile, the Chhatra League’s creed seems to be ‘live high’ and ‘think simple’, which boils down to go grab it, and if it is not available just destroy it.
Punishment, if any, the sufferers hope, will be in the afterlife, which the elements in the Chhatra League do not seemingly reckon to exist, as it is for them related to the fourth dimension, and not the materialist three dimensioned world that they live in and enjoy.
