Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami (Jamaat) are now using their student wings--Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal and Islami Chhatra Shibir to create unrest on campus ahead of the next general elections. This clique has now become desperate to see bloodshed on the country’s prestigious university campuses especially at Dhaka University at any cost. They are now doing everything to create unrest in the country with a target to oust the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The armed cadres of Chhatra Dal and Chhatra Shibir had unleashed a reign of terror by carrying out killing and brutal torture and repression on general students at all universities and colleges across the country between 1979 and 1996. Many students were killed and injured critically by the activists of Chhatra Dal and Chhatra Shibir while heavy gunfire rocked the campuses round the clock during that period.

We all should keep in mind 

that the university is not 

a place for doing ill politics

Country’s all universities are now running their academic activities smoothly after the two years of deadlock caused by Covid-19 pandemic. Authorities of all the university are also taking necessary measures to maintain peaceful atmosphere on campuses. However, some public universities have already witnessed anarchy in the name of movement recently. BNP-led Alliance and Jamaat are instigating their student wings to carryout destructive activities on campus in a bid to make an issue.  

As the politics of conspiracy is still going on in country, the students should remain alert as there will be tougher challenges in the days to come. The workers of Chhatra Dal and Chhatra Shibir are no longer activists as they had turned into offenders, panicking the general students again.

People will have to resist those who want bloodshed on the campus. We hope the government will take tougher steps if the Chhatra Dal and Chhatra Shibir do not refrain from the destructive activities. The students and teachers will have to be united further in order to thwart any plot to create unrest on campuses. We all should keep in mind that the university is not a place for doing ill politics. To protect universities and its students and ensure peace on campuses, the Chhatra Dal and Chhatra Shibir, the defeated pro-Pakistan anti-liberation forces and their allies must be kept out of campus.
