ফিরোজ মাহবুব কামাল ১. বাংলাদেশীদের মুখে চুনকালী আল-জাজিরার ডকুমেন্টেরী হাসিনা ও তার সরকারকে উলঙ্গ করে ছেড়েছে। কিন্তু চোরডাকাত তো উলঙ্গ হওয়াতে শরম পায় না। শরম থাকলে তো চুরিডাকাতিতে নামতো না। তারা ভয় পায় একমাত্র সাহসী জনগণকে যখন তাদের মারতে ধাওয়া করে। কিন্তু বাংলাদেশে সে সাহসী জনগণ কই? জনগণ তো ইতিহাস গড়েছে দুর্বৃত্তদের কাছে আত্মসমর্পণে। তবে […]

Absence of an Islamic State & the Calamities in the Muslim World

The Deceptive Goal & the Earned Failures

 The genesis of failures A journey without a destination takes nowhere. Similarly, survival for the sake of survival only kills time and adds little worth to survival.

The Disconnection & the Debacle

The ­core issue & the betrayal­­­ The most important objective of Islam is to connect humans with the core agenda of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la (SWT).
