    Nafiul Alam Shupto | Updated at 12:00am on July 07, 2019

    WITH a view to protect animals from human atrocities, Cruelty to Animals Act, 1920 was introduced. It was enacted in the British period and remains unchanged until now. However a draft of Animal Welfare Bill has been approved by the cabinet in 2017 in order to reform the existing law in current context. The law has a provision of three-month imprisonment or Tk 200 fine for destitution of animals. Imprisonment under the law will only be applicable if the accused does not admit his or her guilt and actually found guilty following completion of the trial.

    Promises of demographic dividend and poor funding

    Nahid Riyasad | Updated at 12:00am on June 30, 2019

    Despite the Awami League’s youth-friendly narrative in the 2018 election manifesto, insufficient allocations for education and youth development have drawn criticism.

With proper policy, budget and execution, Bangladesh can reap off benefits from this opportunity, writes Nahid Riyasad

    Cricket as shenanigans

    Ridwanul Haque | Updated at 12:00am on June 30, 2019

    Do we know that last year, in case of open budget index ratings we were behind war-torn Afghanistan and right there with the corruption-prone Mozambique? We should not keep our eyes off these events even though the World Cup is going on. We should bear in mind that even if we reach semifinals or win this cricket World Cup, these problems will remain the same. We should not allow corporate sponsorships, gung ho advertisements, frenzied celebration and attractive schemes distract us and let cricket weaponise nationalism, writes Ridwanul Haque
