The Bangladesh Times.
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to voice the grievances of the people about the hijacking.
30, Mohammad Pur, Dhaka
Nowadays hijacking is very rampant in our country. Every day we find the news of many hijackings in all the dailies of our country. It seems that the hijackers are the monarchs of all they survey. There is none to raise voice against them. Everybody is for himself. So it has been very risky to move alone on the road nowadays. Life in the towns and cities are at stake. There is no security in life. If the hijackers don’t find any valuable things with the person they attack, he/ she is either stabbed or killed. The hijackers are very much united. First of all, they make a plan of hijacking and make themselves well equipped. They always lie in wait. They use sharp knives, guns, bombs, or any kind of weapon.
Sometimes they failed to do their crimes. But most often they snatch the valuables away without facing any kind of trouble. Though the victim wants help, the nearby people or the police force don’t go forward for helping the victims. If the hijackers face any kind of trouble, they explode bombs or shoot, create panic and disperse people and safely they make their way after the hijacking. There are many reasons behind the hijacking. Firstly our socio-economic condition is the root cause of hijacking. Again those who are addicted to gambling, drinking, and drug-taking do it to manage money for their addiction. Now, hijacking is a great problem in our country.
This problem can not be solved overnight. First of all the law and order situation of the country should be improved. Law enforcement authorities should always be on the alert. The criminals should be sternly dealt with. Exemplary punishment should be inflicted on criminals. The government should promote the judicial system regarding the punishment of the criminals. Because there goes a proverb that “Justice delayed is justice denied”. The concerned authority should import more law and enforcing authorities at important points. If they are provided with suitable jobs, many of them will give up this hateful criminal activity. Moreover, people from all walks of life should come forward to develop their morality.
