Strikes: Vandalization of Nature.

by Mahsinur Rahman | 24-04-2013 02:25 recommendations 0 recommendations

Hartal* (Strike) is now one of the ways of ?protesting? in Bangladesh. Although, it looks like a way to harm the nature and the Human beings at the same time. Most of the political parties of Bangladesh have used this as their way of ?protesting?. Well, I just want to know:  What will burning cars Cutting Trees and bombing bring on the society? I don't think any good.

In Every Hartal, a lot of cars are burnt without any specific reason. Many trees are cut down and many tires are burnt to make a road-block. This is a serious harm to the environment and Human Life. I urge upon every Bengali's and others to stop this nonsense.

Many people become injured even faces death during this so-called "strikes".

# A banner saying HARTAL.
# A bus torched by the protesters.
# A car torched by the protesters.
# A road-block created by cutting trees.
# No. of vehicles vandalized by the protesters.
(Except the first one, all of the pictures were collected from various sources including post from newspapers)(The first one was shot by me)

*Hartal: is a term in many South Asian language for strike/action,

    Hartals or strikes should be avoided as much as possible. If not avoidable , it should be non violent by proposals and suggestions to management or govt. Nobody gains anything from violent strikes. Time to follow Great Mahatma Gandhi's footsteps of non voilence.

    Thanks Dhiroj&Pratap for more input. I've heard of the tragedy occurred yesterday in Dhaka.
    I wish the victims can recover from the demolition of the building soon and get proper compensation...

    The political situation is almost same in Nepal. Strike is not a new thing here. But after the step toward peace process, it is slightly reduced.

  • Geetika . says :
    oh well! You should think about laws such as "Right to protest" where peaceful strikes are organised with guidance of the govt., even if it's against the govt. This is a law in india. Helps escaping such fierce situations .
    Hartals are necessary for democracies! and should be made peaceful!

    Thanks for the report :)

    My freinds comment about Hartal: "It's more like a Amon Amarth concert."..........\m/

  • Mahsinur Rahman says :
    Yes.....I agree with you too...........Mahathma Gandhi started "Hartal" as a peaceful way of protesting. Now it is a plain terorism............ :/

    There's a saying like this : "Terror is the last resort for unheard voices"
    But I don't agree with that sentence at all.
    Throughout the history, nothing had been earned through these kind of destructive actions.

    Thank you for sharing, Mahsinur :)
