The fact of violence and death on the streets of Bangladesh is sadly not new. Adolescents, opposition activists and business people regularly disappeared, killed and their bodies not registered on the white archive of pain. With the power to represent being as it is, an argument is being arranged whereby the sole victims of violence crime in the country are minorities, religious, atheist and sexual.
It is a greasy and sleazily maintained narrative, fed by scoundrels in internal and external corporate news agencies. What they should be doing is owning up to producing the current conditions of oppression, confusion and fear, and seeking to make amends, not visa applications.
