Dear Allama Shafi,
I cannot find the words to describe my sorrow and indignation over what has happened and what lies in store should hathazari bounce back and rise again. Maybe we will meet on the planes of Arafat and discuss this eventually. Allahumma grant those who won't be returning to their families a place in the hearts of green birds near His Throne.
Dear Mir Quasem Ali
Of the party leaders detained and accused it is your diganta infrastructure that points to the future. We pray for you all, and for justice and that we might have the privaledge of knowing what the f@£k happened over those previous years. 69 to 72.
Most bloody expensive hobnobbing ever right?
Dear Mahmudur Rahman.
Our very own Julian Assange minus the rape allegations. May your wounds heal. If you were here in London I would invite you to our reading group and we could work on the non tribal religious language and decoloniality. Still. They would have arrested you regardless as you held the only press to challenge theur crown jewels.
Dear Delwar Hussein,
I read your party's dossier on you and wish you healing, freedom and guidance. Its a downright shame that you inherit unjust stigma and thus serve as the lightning rod for Awami hate and brutality. I have given up hoping for an answer to the shibbir violence problem.
We're still looking for that higher gear.
We need a more open and inclusive ummahstructure to make space for alternatives to the DJ juice degeneration.
The government of Bangladesh holds unbridled power, and its supporting media- industrial-NGO complex has the people in a triple bind.
The brutal events of May 6th are a sign of things to come. As Awami minded denial shifts to just desertification.
If our Islamist brothers were to find themselves in power tomorrow it probably would be a disaster, not for fault of Islam, but people and the lack of Tawhesion. This is not a secular position but a basic form of training and political due diligence.
The secular liberal hegemony over political space, the right to audience and debate is a problem.
The conditions for faith, life, intellect, dignity, lineage and property are what our activism should be about. These higher objectives of Sharia must come to the foreground in what we say and do.
Whatever happened to the religious left?
There needs to be a moratorium on hartals and a rise in explorations of the political street theater of love.
