Who is affected by the dark side of student politics.
At list it can say that, by this report we will give a clear aide about the present time student politics. Student politics Generally the politics in which the students play chief role is known to us as student politics. STUDENTS are a component of civil society who can lead the nation towards sustainable development. From time immemorial the student community has been playing an important and unparalleled role in nation building. In China, Japan, the USA and many other countries, the students are contributing a lot for social mobility. Democracy, good governance and ight-based development depend on a vibrant student community. Though every human being is a student from cradle to grave, there is a specific time — the periphery of life in educational institutions, which is considered ‘student life’. Student life should be spent in study and interaction with all in order to develop the human caliber for future leadership. As Lenin rightly mentioned in his university lecture, “read, read and read. ” History of Student politics Student Politics gave a new dimension to Bengal politics in the early twentieth century.
The revolutionary terrorist movement, swadeshi movement and the non-cooperation movement made student politics institutionalised in the first quarter of the 20th century. But it cannot be asserted that there was no student politics in the nineteenth century. The young bengal movement was an act of students, though it was essentially an intellectual response to western education. Non-conformism was their hallmark. But the Young Bengal group also addressed social and other issues which later became a part of politics.
In early 1870s, surendranath banerjea formed an association of students with an object of infusing nationalist feelings among the Indians. During the same period, ananda mohan bose invited students to join politics, and he held political classes with students. But the existing political, economic and social conditions and most importantly, disciplinary styles of school and college authorities, debarred the students from showing interest in politics. Qualifying oneself by some education for a job under the colonial government was the highest ambition of students of all classes until the end of the nineteenth century.
Student Politics in Bangladesh Brilliant students have to come in the field of this politics. Let’s go back to the history. In 1952, 1969, 1971 students played vital role to save this motherland & language. At that time student politics was used for the welfare of country. Most brilliant students leaded at that time. In those days there was no quarrel among the student politicians for money & power as of today. In our history, the students have played a glorious role at different critical times.
The Language Movement of 1952, all the movements against the dictatorship of Ayub Khan in our Pakistani days; the 1969 students movement that paved the way for our glorious war of liberation, are all movements in which the students played the major role. In fact, in many instances, the students paved the way that the politicians followed. With the emergence of Bangladesh, one expected that the need for the students to worry about national politics would be over and they would be able to spend their time as studying so that they could empower themselves with knowledge in building the nation.
During our Pakistani days, there was also the lure of international communism that was an added attraction that encouraged the students to participate in national politics as some of these parties were based on the communist or socialist ideology. Bangalee nationalism and international communism that provided the rationale for involvement of students in national politics are history. For a brief period during the Ershad era, it was necessary for the mainstream parties to be assisted by their student’s wing for sake of democracy. Since the fall of Ershad, that reason is also a part of history
Positive side of Student Politics Students are called the future leaders of the country. The participation of students in politics, which gives them the scope to practise leadership. Mainly the meaning of student politics is for the students, of the student and by the student. The students may have their own political views but they should be concern themselves only with national issues. In general, they should mainly fight for the realization of their rights as students. In 1952, 1969, 1971 students played vital role to save this motherland & language.
At that time student politics was used for the welfare of country. Most brilliant students leaded at that time. In those days there was no quarrel among the student politicians for money & power as of today. In our history, the students have played a glorious role at different critical times. The Language Movement of 1952, all the movements against the dictatorship of Ayub Khan in our Pakistani days; the 1969 students movement that paved the way for our glorious war of liberation, are all movements in which the students played the major role.
But there is hardly anything to be proud of, in their conduct in the recent times. Dark side of student politics Though student politics has a lot of positive side, in recent times it has seen engaged in misuse of politics, occupying posse in, fighting, misuse of power and many of other illegal activities. A bright student can make it to the top of the main stream politics, but the greed of power detaches from constructive politics and due to this reason our main stream politics are suffering. So its clear to all students’ politics has turn into a ferocious part of politics.
Depoliticalization ? Illegal occupation of position ? Action not attached to politics. ? creating political instability ? Campus Violence ? Misuse of Power ? Terrorisms ? Drug Trafficking Conclution It’s our bad luck that a big portion of student politics has been spoiled at present. But why? Who are responsible for it? Two big parties BNP & AL have student organizations. BNP has ‘Chattradal’ & AL has ‘Chattralegue’ It’s funny though these parties are for students only but most of the central leaders of them are non-students.
Other alarming matter is no brilliant students who obtain merit position/ A+ in SSC/ HSC are interested in student politics. The present student politicians are not interested in studying. Most of their interest is grown for money & powre not for welfare of country. We should immediately conscious about the matter of spoliation of student politics. Because today’s student politicians are future’s leaders of the country. Can we go back to the golden age of student politics as like as 1952, 1969, 1971………? …………….
