How do people see religion-based politics in the current socio-political context of Bangladesh? Is religion used or abused by politicians? What do our listeners feel about the use of religion in politics in direct or indirect ways?
Professor Ali Riaz from Illinois State University, Dr Asif Nazrul from Dhaka University and well-known journalist Toufique Imroze Khalidi from BDNEWS24 respond to questions from callers on this sensitive issue.
The panelists answered questions about the effects of religion in politics and the society of Bangladesh in general. Callers also asked whether religion-based politics can be used in a productive way instead of banning it. The panelists spoke about the need for law and the mindset of the society to work together to avoid the internal clash that many countries are suffering from today.
