Archive for history of people’s struggle for liberation urged
Dhaka University professor emeritus Serajul Islam Choudhury on Friday urged that an archive should be set up to preserve history of the people’s struggle for liberation since 1757.
‘Aversion to the study of history is observed nowadays…Ruling class is afraid of history…May be they lacks glorious history to present,’ Serajul Islam said at a discussion on his book.
He also said that sterility created by lack of free thinking and cultural exercise was the perfect ground for growing extremism.
‘There is a serious lack of cultural exchanges among the boys and girls and debate or knowledge building exercises…Thus, sterility has been created which is a nourishing space for growing militants,’ he added.
