আজ ১৪ ডিসেম্বর, বেদনাবিধুর শহীদ বুদ্ধিজীবী দিবস ……………

ঊনিশশ’ একাত্তরের এ দিনটি ছিল মঙ্গলবার। মুক্তিযুদ্ধের ইতিহাসে সবচেয়ে নৃশংসতম ঘটনাটি ঘটে শীতার্ত এই দিনে। আমাদের জাতীয় জীবনের আরেক শোকাবহ দিন এটি। নয় মাসের রক্তক্ষয়ী সংগ্রামের শেষ সময়ে বিজয় তখন চূড়ান্ত। পরাজয় নিশ্চিত, বিজয়ের চূড়ান্তক্ষণে বাংলাদেশ হারিয়েছিল তার শ্রেষ্ঠ শিক্ষাবিদ, চিকিৎসক, বিজ্ঞানী, সাহিত্যিক, সাংবাদিক ও শিল্পীদের। আজ পুরো জাতি শ্রদ্ধাবনত চিত্তে স্মরণ করবে সেসব সূর্যসন্তানকে; যাদের আত্মত্যাগে অর্জিত হয়েছে স্বাধীন সার্বভৌম বাংলাদেশ, আমরা পেয়েছি স্বাধীন মানচিত্র। বুদ্ধিজীবীদের হত্যার ঠিক দুই দিন পর ১৬ ডিসেম্বর জেনারেল নিয়াজির নেতৃত্বাধীন পাকিস্তানী বর্বর বাহিনী আত্মসমর্পণ করে এবং স্বাধীন দেশ হিসাবে বাংলাদেশের অভ্যুদয় ঘটে। Read the rest of this entry »

“Universal Declaration of Human Rights”

International Human Rights Day, December 10

Human rights are “commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being.” Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone). These rights may exist as natural rights or as legal rights, in local, regional, national, and international law. The doctrine of human rights in international practice, within international law, global and regional institutions, in the policies of states and in the activities of non-governmental organizations, has been a cornerstone of public policy around the world. The idea of human rights states, “if the public discourse of peacetime global society can be said to have a common moral language, it is that of human rights.” Despite this, the strong claims made by the doctrine of human rights continue to provoke considerable skepticism and debates about the content, nature and justifications of human rights to this day. Indeed, the question of what is meant by a “right” is itself controversial and the subject of continued philosophical debate. Read the rest of this entry »

“Get Involved, Be the Difference”

Everyone has their own reasons for giving back. For me, it’s simply about making the world a more fair, equitable and little better place than what I found. I know I have been blessed to grow up where I did, when I did. I believe everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy, productive life. Those are the values I learned from my family, and they’re why I started UDiON Foundation. Read the rest of this entry »
