Stop campus bullying
Almost every school in our country is proudly boasting about having the best facilities for their students. But in utter despair, those facilities don't seem to cover prevention of bullying. In fact, it's the schools' duty to look after their students' well-being - both physical and mental.
Very often, victims of bullying are too intimidated to share their feelings. Therefore, schools should carefully handle these matters. Every student should be treated equally and teachers must be mindful of any kind of alien behaviour observed in the classrooms. Measures should be taken against any kind of bullies.
Keep prices under control
A rise in the prices of essential food items has reached the highest by this time. Greedy traders have now the excuse of a war in Europe on their side, even in cases of non-imported goods. But will our authorities simply accept this hike in prices as the norm?
Especially when the job market is still recovering from the effects of pandemic-induced lockdowns, do citizens not deserve some empathy? Instead, the price hike for food only seems to be getting worse. This cannot be acceptable and authorities must stamp down on traders who are merely taking advantage of the situation.
Need action against rape
The horror of rape is increasing in Bangladesh. Where is our country going? Where is this society going? After every rape incident, there was a momentary outcry from the public. Voices are raised, protests take place and then it loses momentum. But there is no justice.
It is hoped that the government will take action against rape and implement law strictly by imposing harsh punishments to the accused. It is time to ensure security for women. Let's build a strong protest against rape. Then peace and order will return to the society and thus, an enlightened society can be formed.
