Containing rising crimes in society

Containing rising crimes in society

There is no society where crimes are not committed. But when crimes increase in a society manifolds, this not only indicates that the law enforcing apparatus in that society is failing to control the crimes, increase in crimes may also reflect that a deeper social malaise is going on there. For Bangladesh where crimes have seen a rising trend in recent times, this is particularly true. It is in the right direction that the authorities here asked all divisional commissioners to take steps to curb criminal activities across the country, but it is equally important to identify why the crimes in society are increasing in the first place and take measures accordingly.

That the crimes have increased should not be disputed. Quoting the sources of the Cabinet Division, a report of this newspaper yesterday mentioned that in March this year alone, a total of 1,789 criminal incidents were committed, while 2,366 occurrences had been recorded by the police in April. Still, there might be a large number of crimes that might not have reported to the law enforcers.

All sorts of crimes have increased. Besides, cross-border smuggling and food adulteration, in recent days our society has seen a spectacular rise in crimes against women, particularly rape incidents. For flimsy reasons, criminals here are taking lives of the innocent. Recently the Supreme Court observed that moral decadence in society is responsible for a rise in crimes in society, but it gave no clue as to why the country’s overall moral condition has come to such a bad pass. If this question cannot be answered and the problem remedied, there will be no stop in surge of crimes, however the state become tough in curbing crimes.

Few will deny that country’s educational institutions have become infested with all sorts of crimes when these institutions should act as a beacon of light for the rest of the society. If the nation fails to rescue the educational institutions from its present free fall, these will, in turn, hardly produce morally enlightened and law abiding citizens.

Moreover, if truth and justice, the two fundamental values of human life, continue to take a beating instead of being upheld, the nation will also not be able to restore its moral condition that would automatically put a brake on crimes.
