State of Emergency

Bangladesh under the state of emergency
Bangladesh, the land of green, my motherland probly came again under the Authoritarian regiem! Declaration of the State of Emergency means the articles of the constitution (36,37,38,39,40,42) are withheld. That means all the basic rights of mine does not have any value there. I can not say what i like or what i dislike. What i believe or what i dont believe - i can not exxpress. Where the barrel of a gun decides everything!
The metafore says -"The Dictator will be saving democracy" as the father of the nation -with his noble Responsibility towards the nations. Media will be dominated. Journalists will be tortured. Basic rights will be violated by the states. All these are common phenomenon under the state of emergency.
This is not the first time we are facing this situation. After the libaration in 1971, we have faced this situation couple of times. During the mid 70's to late 80's! All these years Bangladesh was rulled by the generals. The generals spend their vacations in Switzerland but the poor farmers still need to starving because of the food. Cheears Generals!!.
