Hasina Not a Dictator: Bangladesh High Commission hits back..!

14 0 0

GVS Online had republished an Opinion piece by Mohsin Raza Malik, on Jan 17, under the title, “Bangladesh: Hasina becomes a ruthless dictator” (originally published in The Nation). Writer, a lawyer, argued that in recent elections in which Sheikh Hasina’s party won 288 seats out of 298, were marred by allegations of rigging and ballot stuffing and even 2014 elections were controversial and that Hasina has become an “elected dictator” ruling over a “One party state” using laws like “Information & Communications Technology Act” and “Digital Security Act (DSA) that have curtailed civil liberties. Bangladesh High Commission in Islamabad has expressed serious reservations to this point of view. GVS publishes the rejoinder of High Commission, in full, without any editing. Readers eager to know both points of view can make their own judgments.

The prejudiced and jaundiced article is full of distorted information and biased commentary on Bangladesh. It appears more like a mouthpiece of the opposition political party and anti-liberation forces of Bangladesh.

Echoing the losing opposition party,........
