Today’s Call-In Show focused on the subject of Victory Day in Bangladesh. While answering the questions of the callers, the panelists discussed the successes and failures in Bangladesh gathered over the last thirty eight years of victory.
As the callers inquired about the kind of success the independent Bangladesh has achieved, the panelists acknowledged that we have also faced many failures. We need educational reforms and more concentration must be given to solve or lessen the problem of corruption. The politicians need more awareness so that they can work harder to give the kind of qualitative change that Bangladesh needs.
Despite the failures, they agree that the nation is on the right track. The people of Bangladesh still believe in the ideology that led us to independence in 1971.
They honor the sacrifice of the freedom fighters and believe that the people of Bangladesh are capable and willing to continue the effort in the years to come in order to make the country a better place with more successes than failures.
The panelists were: Advocate Sultana Kamal, Former Advisor of Caretaker Government in Bangladesh and Advocate for protecting the rights of women and children, Professor Abul Barakat from the Department of Economics, University of Dhaka, and Professor A K M Shelly Shahabuddin, writer currently living in Pennsylvania, USA.
Anis Ahmed hosted the show.
