It is said that the different communities in Bangladesh in terms of religion, ethnicity, politics and other considerations have been in a harmonious position since time memorial combating various types of adversities, negativity and complexities where Bangladesh is considered as an imitative example of communal harmony amid the racial and communal clashes and conflicts in some affected countries of the world.
The assurance and materialization of communal, racial, religious and political harmony, unity and unanimity are the abject demands of our time since the world including Bangladesh is undergoing a considerable level of factionalism and segregation in which the vicious cycles have got the opportunity to manipulate this state of segregation of different sections rendering the conscious, sincere and vigilant citizens into mutual mistrust, misunderstanding, doubt, clash and conflicts among them.
Bangladesh has been suffered from varying degrees of communal violence in different parts of its history where the world including Bangladesh has been a victim of political anarchy, religious extremism, racial discrimination, economic slowdown and such types of socio-economic, socio-political and geo-political complications leading the common masses into lack of peace, harmony and discipline among them.
Hopefully, the conscious and sincere citizens of Bangladesh has inaugurated a socio-cultural organization called ‘Harmonious Bangladesh’ responding the demand of our critical time where the prominent persons and personalities from different classes, professions and groups have assembled under a common platform to combat all sorts of anomalies and abnormalities in preserving communal harmony, unity and unanimity in Bangladesh.
As the members of the society and the citizens of the country, invariably we have to preserve cultural diversity, diversity of thoughts, cultural pluralism, justified freedom of speeches and freedom of the press etc. for the greater welfare, well-being, goodness and properness of our common masses and conscious and unconscious citizens.
Though Bangladesh is blessed with sufficient natural resources, the hospitality of Bangladesh is satisfactory, the common people of Bangladesh has been affected from less magnitude like the war-stricken countries; Bangladesh is yet to establish itself as a good, welfare and progressive state in the world for its natural, political, communal, economic and social calamities and backwardness.
Although Bangladesh has progressed in some socio-economic indices over the years, the total Bangladesh is yet to achieve financial sufficiency, political stability, infrastructural and super-structural improvement, development in the basic needs of the people of the country and most importantly, the assurance of the regularity and discipline in its attitudes, initiatives, performances and activities.
Moreover, Bangladesh has to uphold good level of patriotism, sense of independence, good moral values, communal harmony and these types of good and righteous aspects for ages. Otherwise, Bangladesh will not be able to retain its continual improvement envisaged in the eyes of the international community and the emancipation of the common masses from all sorts of socio-economic adversities and anomalies will go under sheer uncertainty, doubt, backwardness and frustration.
Some experts opine that Bangladesh has been a country of ‘Development Dilemma’ like some countries in the world where the development and future of Bangladesh have been stumbled, frustrated and obstructed by some undeterminable, inexpressible and complex socio-economic, geo-political, natural and international factors for which Bangladesh is yet to overcome its obstacles while some of its contemporaries in terms of longevity and duration are thriving with flying colours.
More research work should be conducted to find out the trends and behaviours in the demographic, socio-economic, geo-political and such types of factors and characteristics in Bangladesh so that the common people will judge themselves how they are, what they actually do and what they actually should do to bring about a satisfactory change to turn the wheel of their fortune.
Besides, the authorities concerned can guide, instruct and operate others in materializing a Bangladesh free from all sorts of socio-economic complexities and complications and full of peace, progress, affinity, flourish, civility and discipline.
The introduction of ‘Harmonious Bangladesh’ and its subsequent public-affiliation will certainly help lessen the differences of opinions and factions among different parties and groups, preserve an environment of peace, harmony, co-operation and co-existence among all, and bring them under a common platform in case of national crisis irrespective of their affiliations with various factions.
It is imperative to note that the policy-makers and the authorities concerned of Bangladesh should follow the models of development initiatives taken in different parts of the world to receive instructions, messages and guidelines in order to bring about a satisfactory change in the socio-economic spectrum in the developing country like Bangladesh.
Bangladesh has to work hand in hand with its developing partners for years with mutual trust and understanding in order to implement its development initiatives with sheer professionalism, congeniality, sympathy and responsibility.
To raise public awareness, to highlight welfare, humanity, benevolence and other issues good for the people, to understand and guide public emotion, passion and behavior towards regular and disciplined development etc. are some of the good, effective and efficient measures to be taken for the betterment of a promising country like Bangladesh.
