Rashed Khan Menon, the President of the Worker’s Party in Bangladesh said that terrorism in Bangladesh is not a problem of law and order . It is a very basic problem of politics and of political philosophy.
In an exclusive interview with VOA Bangla Service he says that the arrests and punishment of Shaikh Abdur Rahman or Bangla Bhai will not solve the problem, unless the philosophy which feeds them is uprooted.
He held the Bangladesh government responsible for the religious extremism in the country and an initial consequent denial of the fact that Islamic Terrorism do exist in Bangladesh. Menon emphasized on reforming the electoral system as well as the system of the caretaker government.
