Suddenly violence increases in the campuses. The latest incident of the series occurred in the JU campus. Two factions of Students League clashed with each other with rods, sticks and arms. People shocked with the development. The same sort of incident occurred in JU one month back for which the activities of the party was suspended one month back. The incident is not an isolated one, violence occurred in CU and other institutions also.

Why these violence? The motivation behind the violence is to capture the halls, control the campus, dominate the tender bidding, dictate the donations etc.

It is not student politics. It is a form of student terrorism. Nobody like to see the students to be indulged in such activities, neither their parents nor the citizens.

Prime Minister Hasina on the following day declared in the anniversary of SL in the Paltan Maidan that no violence in the campus will be tolerated.

Throughout the tenure of the Caretaker Government debate continued on student politics. There were attempt to absolutely close the student politics. But more were in favour of continuing student politics without being a part of the mainstream political party. EC also took attempt to make the concept accepted by the political parties as a part of registration of the political parties.

It is not a matter of imposition by the Election Commission how the student wing would behave, rather it is a matter of consensus among the political parties, the university authorities, guardians in general and nation as a whole to determine how the students will exert their political right maintaining the discipline and keeping the academic activities intact in the campus.

What is going on in the campus is not student politics. The government should ponder over the matter, the parliament should debate, citizens should participate to determine the ultimate form of student politics that would support us to achieve the target of vision 2021.
