Student Politics in Bangladesh needs to be Banned

What i think is the bad influence of the old corrupted Politics practice made these University Students protesting the current emergency state of Bangladesh. I should request to the authorities to think about Banning the Student Politics in Bangladesh for next few years.

The old fashion Student Politics Practice could be the main seed of facing the corrupted Politicians in future.

There are 3 types of Student in any University or College:

  • A type: Career Oriented (focused only in study and career issues)
  • B type: Mid-type Student (they needs proper guidance about their career)
  • C type: Politics Oriented Students (who always prefer the Politics Involvement rather then Career)
In usual scenario we loosed the fame and name of Dhaka University just for the reason of our Bad Political Practice which was practiced by the C Type students. And sometimes B type students were the ultimate victim of the Fight of C Type Students and Security Forces in different Protests.

From my past experience B type students gets the influence or sometimes forced to support the C Type students. Which makes the ratio of protesting supporters increases than the usual ratio of C type students. Then the conflict seems more strong and bold to different media. Even the media influences in any activities needs to be monitored cause a Public focus is very much influencing for those C type students. Sometimes you will see only to show their face in medias for different protest or awareness program they tries to get into focus by anyway.

According to the current need of our Developing Bangladesh, i don't think Bangladesh needs any more Student Politicians. I think the need of Skilled Practitioners in different Developing sector is more important than doing Politics or think about Politics.

I am thankful to our current state of emergency for taking many good steps as like removal of corrupted Politicians from Bangladesh Politics. But i think it's even time to think of banning Student Politics from all public Universities and even banning the Teachers involvement in Politics.

If a Teacher becomes biased on his/her own beloved politics, then he/she will never could guide his/her Students for a better future without thinking Politics.

There are many reason and logics behind the words i am asking to people think about it. Cause we really in need of Skilled Development Engineers, Architects, Doctors, Scientist, Economist, and even good healthy Politicians for better future.

Lets start welcoming the Ban of Student and Teachers involvement in Politics!
Lets Say No to Students and Teachers politics again!

Here is another old post on this Student Politics issue.

Tell me do you really like to see your country with a bad title in different News websites?

Student Politics - YES or No?

Suddenly surfing in internet i stopped by a Blog and got few of that author's (Tanvir) articles interesting to me. Here i am sharing one of his post: "Student Politics Dispute" and my reply which you might feel interested to read: See my Comment here

Here i am pasting my Comment:

Nice to see your Blog full of interesting topics :)
Just a simple question… How many 1st Generation Countries really have Student Politics in their Top Ranking Universities?

Can you go back to the history of Dhaka University? What it was and where is it now? Dhaka University was one of the Top Ranked universities Once upon a time! I don’t support that Student Politics which creates Corrupted Students, Session Jam or Faculties to be supporting different parties and Politics involved in Study and Guidance! If this Student Politics is the barrier of our future Leaders then why don’t we stop Student Politics!

At our past we didn’t look for the Leaders by promoting Student Politics! They were built by their spirit! They are not the Output of Student Politics Practice! But i should say that they had that Leadership and that’s how now we can’t forget them and still can’t think without Student Politics.

Leadership doesn’t mean always to Lead a Political Party. It could be running a Business, innovation of something new, Engineering new Technology, innovation of a new Medication, could be even in Leading a big Armed Forces! Do we need Student Politics in Army or Air Force or Navy? Now it sounds funny right?

How could you expect of a Computer Science Student or Math Student involved in Student Politics?

Computer Science could teach you a different Leadership Technique where you will be learning to be Team leads and sometimes Project Manager, and someday may be as a CTO or CEO of a Software Company. Do you think my Political Leadership Knowledge will help me to come up with better Codes? or Quality Software? or Better Requirement Analysis Report ? or some other better Algorithm? or something to get a job in Google or Microsoft?

It’s not that without Student Politics i am not learning any Leadership! Dr. Yunus! Was he a Student Politician? But how did he contribute to the Country? That’s what i should call the Leadership! He leaded us to a Fame and Name of PEACE! We are proud of him! He could be a good leader whenever we want him.

Did you ever thought from Root level? This Student Politics influence is more visible in Universities but did we ever thought the Influence works or starts from the School or College level?

Let me share a valuable reply of one of my School Life Gang star!

I asked - “Hey what are you doing now?”
He replied: “Dosto! Desh bachaite hobe! so Pora Lekha koira ki hobe? Party kori ..Then DU te Politics er power e Dhukum koidin por..Boro neta emnitei Hobo!”

(I don’t know where is he now, last time i met in 2001/2002)

Gang-staring in School and College are just nothing without the bad influence of our Student Politics of Universities! We loose more then 35% students from our total School and College level who motivates them as a Student Politician and becomes the Gangs of Corrupted Politicians!

Lets Stop thinking in the old Corrupted ways!
Lets Say No to Student Politics for sake of OUR Development and lets solve the Session Jam, be more productive and competent to the other Business Companies of the World!
Compete with the 1st Generation Countries in better ways!

- By Tahmid Munaz

Say YES or NO with your own logic!
