We knew there was corruption and violence in Bangladesh, but is not being reported through the most of the news agencies. Thanks Cal. Now this is government is one we should be withdrawing funding.

One of many we shouldn't be giving any aid...but no one is willing to stop any aid. It's too easy to keep taxing the poor, credit the rich and help all the dishonest and warring governments in the world - looks good on the resume.

Pull funding for all nations with this type of draconian dystopic behavior. We've enough problems at home to solve.

Bangladesh overpopulated,dire poverty,child labour etc. Sheik Hasina the prime minister greedy lady who wanted to lay claim to a lot more than she was entitled to. Gap,Walmart,Banana Republic together with numerous other co's making use of real cheap labour! All western aid must be stopped as the leadership in these countries upgrade their personal lives & downgrade their citizens who voted them in.Any uprising by these citizens is met with an iron fist, hail of bulltes to keep them in the gutters, ones that these poor people have no way of getting out of. Thats politics throughout the world.

Zero accountahility, endemic corrupt5ion, elections looming ... sound familiar?

Coming soon to your country, not yet, but soon. So busy fighting for crumbs, with never a reasonable and workable solution, this element of humankind will slide in unnoticed ... but you will.

As one of the most overpopulated countries in the world in an geographically unsafe place where the regular floods are increasing in frequency and magnitude because of climate change, Bangladesh never really had a chance to set-up shop after getting its independence in 1971. With corruption as part of its nations fabric and increasing religious unrest the population needs all the help it can get. Just pouring money into a corrupt government doesn't help, but stopping al humanitarian aid doesn't help either. Making the poor more self-sufficient, helping them build dikes and levies to keep out the floods and help farmers to grow more then just enough for their families and by-passing corruption may give this country a chance to get itself in order before it goes up as the next powder keg in the area.
