National unity essential

National unity essential

In order to prosper and flourish, any country needs national unity regarding certain key issues. Very unfortunately unity is being eradicated, as everyone is trying to overpower the other in every aspect, be it politics or even more unfortunately academia. Against this background President Abdul Hamid’s call for national unity to achieve prosperity comes as a beacon of hope.

The concept of being a Bangladesh is what should ideally sum together the individual groups within the country, with the constitution and the government creating an environment where people belonging to any strata of life would have an equal chance to make a prosperous life for them and collectively for the country. Such a system would celebrate the concept of one nation inhabited by Bangladeshis where individual differences on region, religion and ethnicity would be overridden. All the individuals within the country should first think of themselves as citizens of this republic, excited by the potential that their efforts can bring about a prosperous future. At a very basic level, even a frank exchange of ideas across different classes of people can lead to better understanding, acceptance and exposure.

A very important thing to remember is that great nations are not born, but made, and they are made on the strength of their people. The question is whether the individuals within this country can truly be who they were meant to be, a diverse group of people working for their prosperity and the country’s prosperity, rather than fighting with each other for petty individuality. The only way to achieve that is to transform our way of thinking and not to forget why we came to be and that we are Bangladeshis first and foremost.

The one thing which can really help us is our unity, and our belief in one another. As is well known, even the weak become strong when they are united. So, putting their differences aside the people should all categorise themselves as Bangladeshis and show the world that through their united initiative Bangladesh would indeed carve a niche for itself in the world. All Bangladeshis should follow what John F. Kennedy once said “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask that you can do for your country”. All Bangladeshis should rise and begin a new era as one.
