Fears for the New Year

It is fashionable around this time of year to make predictions for the New Year. What’s in store for Bangladesh? If we look back to 2004, would we have guessed at the start of the year that bombs would be thrown at a British High Commissioner or the leader of the Opposition, Sheikh Hasina along with the top echelons of her party, the Awami League?None of us, except the perpetrators, knew. So what could lie in store for us in 2005? The groups who carried out these acts must be serious people and have objectives and goals. If they failed to achieve them then, is it not likely that they will try again? Where and against whom? It is reasonable to fear that there will be more violence and that there will be more destabilisation. 2005 is not going to be an easy ride.
