In an exclusive interview with VOA, Badruddin Umar, noted writer and political commentator of Bangladesh, discussed the harmful rivalries between the two main political parties and how history has been contaminated in the educational systems due to political reasons.
Badruddin Umar commented on the recent clashes in parliament between the parties. He said instead of tackling the important issues such as human rights violations or the economic crisis at hand, the political parties are arguing over irrelevant issues that the youth of today have nothing to learn from. The history classes taught in schools are now biased depending on which party is in power.
He believes that the current state of politics of Bangladesh is influencing the educational systems and the future of the youth of Bangladesh in a harmful way. Not much has been done to make the situation better.
