Political Disasters in Bangladesh and Affairs of the ‘State of Emergency- 2007’

Muhammad Ala Uddin


On January 11, 2008 Bangladesh stepped into its second year under a ‘state of emergency’ with the army backed caretaker government reeling under a number of difficulties on the political and economic fronts. Although Bangladesh has been experiencing ‘state of emergencies’ since the Pakistan period the pattern of this ‘emergency’ is distinct one in nature. This is going to be the longest episode of ‘emergency’ the country experiencing with truncated fundamental rights. Before January 11, 2007 the political situation over a parliamentary election turned so chaotic that it called for such stern action. Major political parties, general citizens along with the civil society are now demanding the withdrawal of the ‘emergency’. This paper looks at the ground and outgrowth of the first year of the ‘state of emergency- 2007’.
Key words: Bangladesh, state of emergency, ground and outgrowth
Résumé: Le 11 janvier 2008, la Bangladesh est entrée dans la deuxième année sous un « état d’urgence » avec l’armée qui soutien le gouvernement de gardien dépassé par un tas de difficultés sur les fronts politique et économique. Bien que la Bangladesh a connu un « état d’urgence » dans la période pakistanaise, le modèle de cette « urgence » est bien différent par sa nature. Il va devenir l’épisode d’urgence le plus long que le pays connaît avec des droits fondamentaux tronqués. Avant le 11 janvier 2007, la situation politique après une élection parlementaire s’avère si chaotique que le pays recourt à une telle action sévère. Les partis politiques majeurs, les citoyens et la société civile exigent maintenant la retraite de l’ « urgence». Le présent article examine la raison et la conséquence de la première année de l’ « état d’urgence - 2007»
Mots-Clés: Bangladesh, état d’urgence, raison et conséquence
