Debate on combating militancy with student politics
A debate organised by Debate for Democracy in this regard yesterday called “Combating Militancy and Student Politics at private universities” at BFDC, Tejgaon. The debate discussed the merits of having students participate in politics and the awareness that builds as opposed to specific strategic measures that can be taken in curbing terrorism. The debate was won by IBAIS University playing the opposition while Bangladesh University of Textiles played the role of the government. Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police for media and planning AKM Shahidur Rahman said at the debate: “The truth is that many young folks are becoming radicalised. This is a serious concern. Every individual should stand up against terrorism in the country and support the law enforcement.” The DIG added: “The misinterpretation of religion has derailed the youth. The meaning of religion should be taught properly. They should be more involved in cultural activities and engage in extra curricular activities.” Chairman of Debate for Democracy Hassan Ahmed Chowdhury Kiron said: “The universities that are registered as non-profit organisation but operate commercially should be held accountable. While the standard and quality of education in the private institutions should improve.” Chairman Hassan Ahmed Chowdhury Kiron presided over the debate.
