Political violence in Bangladesh and the role of opposition (2006-2016)
Violence and the birth of Bangladesh are interconnected in such a manner that it is hardly separated. The political instability and lack of governance have become the obstacles to controlling violence effectively against the numerous sections of the society. A long period of military dictatorship, the persistent problem of political intolerance, and the growth of religious extremism supported these trends till now. The forced unlawful killings were not even investigated. The introduction of a Neutral Care Taker Government in 2008 gave some hope for good governance but after the abolition of NCG, the old trend of opposition-led political violence was reintroduced. Factional conflicts are a new feature of political violence in Bangladesh.
