BNP wants "Stage Managed Democracy"
BNP-Jamaat alliance adopt a similar policy of terror and repression? Obviously, they also wanted to terrorize the members and supporters of Awami League to abandon the party. It is a matter of profound concern that a reprehensible crime such as rape was used by the ruling party musclemen as an instrument of terror.

Reign Of Terror In Bangladesh
Across the country, Awami League leaders are being killed, often in cold blood, one by one, according to a hit list. The murder of Mr. Manjurul Imam is a part of the grand design of the ruling alliance.

Why is Bangladesh such a troubled country?
Even those who supported the BNP-Jamaat alliance and voted them to power are uneasy in their mind. A pervasive sense of unease and lack of security prevails everywhere. A lot of people spend sleepless nights because the prospects for the future seem so bleak. Many people believe that the country has not seen such a situation since the days of the Liberation War in 1971
