To ensure the justice in a state, there must have a higher ideal based on what all political parties will formulate and propagate their agenda. No political party will dare even to question that higher ideal. Unfortunately in Bangladesh, there is no such higher ideal acceptable to all the political parties. The colonial psyche has played a role in this regard, no doubt. Apart from this and keeping the Islam subordinate to the secularism which the seculars claim as the basement of the liberation war, the secularism what seculars propose to be the politically higher ideal for the state is basically of double standard. Like other secular tendencies functioning beyond the South Asian countries, Bengali secularism can hold the Islam in no means, especially as a political force. It likes to deal Islam and Muslims without understanding the basics of Islam. The secularism what we see in Bangladesh is basically another form of Islamophobia. For that, they can barely understand the Islam as a theology, Islamism as a modern political phenomenon and its cultural, economic and all other possible forms of exhibitions. When Islam confronts them as a political force they cannot hold it as Bengali secular ideal is no means higher than that of Islam and they react against the Islam even breaking down their own set standard. We have experienced such exhibition in Shahbag assemblage when they denied their own formulated laws and own set trial and as an anti-force, we have experienced another form of political force in Shapla Chattar in Motijheel. The Shapla Chattar was surely unique for its form, figure and style. We have passed 10 years, ‘The Perspective’ thinks that we should have a look back to that time and analyze that period in a fair and just lance to come to a conclusion as to what actually happened at that time, the reasonability of the Shahbag assemblage and its impacts on the state and how it framed the current Bangladesh in terms of Politics, economy and justice and so on.
