That did the century of rape
About 1997. One day it was learned through the newspaper that Jahangirnagar University student Jasimuddin Manik was distributing sweets in celebration of his rape centenary! His main identity was that he was the general secretary of the then JU Chhatra League.
Can't believe it? 100 rapes possible?
Listen, then, in 1997, these incidents started appearing in the form of a series in Manabjamin magazine. Many students, who did not want to be named, said that they were raped by the leaders and workers of Manik Group. Outside the campus, they also raped many teenagers and women in and around the area, regardless of their age or marital status. (Source: Manabjamin)
Everyone sat motionless after the report of Manabjamin. The movement granulated on campus. The students come down the street. The campus is closed indefinitely.
This Manik was the nephew of the then JU Proctor. People started running to save him. Tactically, the service was the first to try to swallow a theory. That is-
There is no group of rapists, the identity of the rapist is rapist. They are the enemies of the nation. They cannot be of any team.
The students of Jabir did not understand that their movement was being diverted. They did not listen to this. Eventually, Proctor resigned in the face of intense protests. Manik was expelled for 1 year.
Look at the incident in Sylhet, the girl screamed during the rape, her husband screamed. But no one came forward. Why? Because the rapists were known for a political identity, against which people are afraid to say anything.
There is no guarantee that everyone in an organization will be good. If an employee does bad things, he should set an example by punishing him severely without avoiding it. So that other employees do not dare to do that in the future! Avoiding one rape means giving another rape an unwritten certificate.
