7 injured as gas cylinder explodes

Something like seven individuals were harmed as a gas chamber of a stockroom detonated in Khagrachhari area town early yesterday, police said.

In the impact, the distribution center dividers and adjacent shops were harmed in Khabongpuria region.

Of the harmed, five are distribution center laborers and two others are a businessperson and his better half.

The harmed were first admitted to Khagrachhari Sadar Hospital. Afterward, four of them were alluded to Chittagong Medical College Hospital.

Urmi Chakma, proprietor of a shop adjacent to the distribution center, said she went to the shop from her home in the wake of hearing a noisy blast.

Her shop was totally obliterated in the impact, she included.

Mohi Ranjan Chakma, a retailer who was harmed in the impact, said more often than not laborers did not remain in the distribution center around evening time. Be that as it may, he heard someone working in the stockroom on Monday night.

Around 4:45am, a distribution center divider abruptly fell on his shop where he and his better half were dozing, abandoning them injured, Mohi said while conversing with this journalist at Khagrachhari Sadar Hospital.

Harmed Newton Chakma, a distribution center laborer, said he was snoozing when the occurrence occurred.

"I didn't have even an inkling how the blast occurred as I was dozing. I woke up when I felt flares on my body," said Newton, who endured consume wounds to his face and hands.

Abdul Kader, station officer at Khagrachhari fire administration, said the explanation for the impact couldn't be known quickly.

Sanwar Hossain, sub-examiner of Khagrachhari Sadar Police Station, said they were researching the episode.

Distribution center proprietor Canton Chakma has been called for cross examination, said Shahadat Hossain Tito, officer accountable for the police headquarters.

The abhorrent act of 'generalisation'

Without realizing that it tries to build up balance, some feel that women's liberation is a forceful belief system. That it looks to lay attack to the privileges of "men". Without realizing that Islam doesn't mean being a Bin Laden, some believe that Islam is permeated with psychological oppression. That it looks to set up a Caliphate by rough methods. An Islamophobic individual will despise Muslims with each fiber of his being. An enemy of women's activist will do likewise with women's activists. Obviously, the individuals who think like that are blinded by the shadow of "speculation". What's more, it is because of the very idea of speculation that we have seen clashes tearing through nations and time, gulping lives and eroding the establishment of tranquil conjunction.

At the point when the Myanmar security powers took action against the Rohingya individuals, they didn't see them as ordinary individuals with typical lives. Or maybe, they were viewed as fear mongers. Regardless of having nothing to do with psychological oppression (for this situation, exploding police stations), the security powers reprimanded them for something not they, however a couple of extremists had done. Concerning the outcomes, we currently have rambling evacuee camps in zones that had once been evergreen woods with tough slopes. Those camps are pressed with awful accounts of brutality. All as a result of resentment against the "wrong agents"— the extremists.

The 9/11 assaults gave route for despise wrongdoings to rise. The union of contempt has made numerous Americans see all "Muslims" in an awful light regardless of their guiltlessness. In 2017, detest violations against Muslims rose to 15 percent in the United States, as indicated by The New York Times. A report around the same time by Pew Research Center demonstrates that attacks against Muslims have outperformed the dimension of 2001.

Give us a chance to review the instance of Yusor, Deah, and Razan, who had been severely murdered by their neighbor in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, execution-style. Give us a chance to review the instance of Nabra Hassanen, who had been assaulted and executed amid Ramadan by a man in Virginia. Give us a chance to review the instance of a man prepared to shoot up a mosque in Canada, asserting five honest lives.

The reasons? The confidence of the people in question and the assailants' visually impaired scorn towards it.

In the wake of the ongoing Kashmir assault which left 40 Indian paramilitary police dead, my newsfeed was loaded up with dehumanizing suppositions against Pakistan all in all (the credit goes to some Indian "image pages"). Remember that the assault was completed by a Pakistan-based fear based oppressor association, Jaish-e-Mohammed. It was not done by the blameless Kashmiri individuals who are presently confronting individuals' fierceness. With respect to engendering scornful assumptions, the general population remarking under the images are naturally determined by wrath, and obviously, the shadow of speculation. They, much like the security powers of Myanmar, the Islamophobia-driven individuals in the US, and each one of those slamming woman's rights, are communicating their fierceness towards a whole network.

They neglect to comprehend that the network and its guiltless individuals ought not be accused for something a "wrong delegate" has done. As per an article in Scroll.In, in Dehradun, Kashmiri understudies are being pursued by hordes. They are seeking isolation, abandoning their colleges. The article states how an understudy has seen his companions and instructors join challenges the Kashmiri individuals, which made him feel separated. Retailers are declining to pitch anything to Kashmiri understudies. Proprietors are discreetly approaching them to search for elsewhere to remain, as their "Kashmiri" nearness may convey inconvenience to the landowners.

The Kashmiris are presently confronting the outcomes of speculation. This post-Kashmir-assault air echoes the environment of the fallout of the 2002 Gujarat slaughter. In the slaughter, around (at least 2,000) guiltless lives were lost. Lives that had nothing to do with the consuming of a train in Godhra (that year) which murdered 59 Hindu travelers. Basically having a place with indistinguishable confidence from the supposed enemies of the travelers made the honest at fault and focuses of Hindu fanatics. The chafed hordes didn't once imagine that those executioners had been the wrong delegates and that those executioners' activities had nothing to do with those guiltless individuals. However, they assaulted numerous ladies, set properties burning, started a slaughtering binge, and decimated any plausibility of serene concurrence. One can dare to dream that history doesn't rehash itself and that the consequence of the Kashmir assault isn't equivalent to that of the Gujarat slaughter.

The demonstration of speculation has fatal results. It has cost a huge number of lives from the beginning of time. More Yusors, Deahs, and Razans, progressively Kashmiri understudies in limbo, and increasingly guiltless individuals will keep on becoming involved with the line of sight of contempt and speculation except if we quit considering the numerous in charge of the demonstrations of a couple.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 Coupe

The world has changed in the previous decade. Conservative extremists are running the world, twenty to thirty year olds are presently in places of intensity and managing patterns all around (or if nothing else being uncertain about it), NickiMinaj is a true blue rockstar and sexual orientation ease has achieved vehicles. Gone are the days when you'd almost certainly classify autos dependent on their shape and appearance—expanding dimensions of plan experimentation and item decent variety has prompted hybrid SUVs, four entryway roadsters, just as the current week's test vehicle, the Benz GLC 300 Coupe. Try not to give its saucy backside and slanted rooftop a chance to trick you—this is a hybrid SUV underneath, using the 'standard' GLC 300 running rigging.

Why, however?

MB unmistakably feels there's a business opportunity for energetic hybrids like the GLC Coupe—with boss opponents BMW promoting progressively 'stylish' hybrids like the X4 (see underneath) and X6, the SUV showcase is inundated with vehicles that apparently have interminable interest. With more individuals living in urban regions universally than any time in recent memory, the going 4x4 romping capacity of SUVs and hybrids are exchanged off for on-street execution and nearness. The high-driving position is intended to summon sentiments of raised status, while the general attitude of the GLC Coupe makes it more at home before a top of the line bistro than a rustic farmhouse.

Great vibes just, at that point?

It's not ailing in visual punch, that is without a doubt. It knocks some people's socks off anyplace, particularly in the selenite dark of our test vehicle. Children from different autos point and gaze at the swoopy profile, drivers before you bounce off the beaten path for a forceful front end. It's very preferable investigating BMW's X4, with rich lines and perfectly incorporated back structure that may very well age superior to the muddled, scattered feel of the BMW. In case you're of the Instagram age and you need some distraught props via web-based networking media, the GLC Coupe is more than proficient.

Be that as it may, is it adequate to shoot my video blogs in?

The GLC Coupe is refined, calm and has every one of the fancy odds and ends to wow your developing YouTube following. Regardless of the slight proof of motor commotion crawling into the lodge at speed, you'll generally be encompassed by quiet—or the most recent case of mutter rap streaming in from the Burmester sound framework, in the event that you favor. Back headroom is somewhat traded off because of the pointedly raked rooftop, so on the off chance that you need to bring along your companions, request that they get a hair style first. The lively, hardened suspension loosens up over knocks and slips into potholes a bit brutally. The exchange off is in sharp dealing with—valuable for maintaining a strategic distance from troublesome worker people on foot intruding on your session of conversing with the camera in the driver's seat. In the event that troublesome walkers aren't diversion enough, the Benz infotainment framework, with its broad scope of vehicle data shows, should keep you genuinely involved—in spite of the fact that the non-contact screen controls are a little fiddly for the un-started.

Imagine a scenario in which I need to maintain a strategic distance from my crowds of adherents.

The Coupe won't leave a trail of blazes behind it as it quickens (0-100 km/h takes about 6.4 seconds) however it'll get you puts quicker than you'd anticipate. The 2.0 liter turbo 4-chamber is useful for around 241 HP and 273lb-ft torque—extraordinary for a vehicle saying something around 1834 kg. The 9 speed 9G-TRONIC gearbox, combined with the 4MATIC all-wheel drive, makes the drive loosening up when you need it with close intangible movements. 13.5 inch cross penetrated brake rotors in advance and 12.6 inch back circles conveys the Coupe to a stop when everything gets excessively.


The GLC Coupe is gone for the youthful on a fundamental level—the sort of individual who wants to drive themselves all over and touch base in style. It's not ailing in utility regardless of what appearances propose—the boot is sufficiently huge to swallow your baggage, with overlay down back seats for extra stockpiling. It performs well and handles like an a lot littler, sportier vehicle with slight exchange offs in solace. The way that a four entryway SUV-car thing even exists is more a blame of the occasions than the maker, so lay off it and search inside if this isn't your sort of thing. As Captain Raymond Holt of Brooklyn Nine once stated, "Each time somebody ventures up and says their identity, the world improves as a spot."

Muhammad Khasru, the pioneer of film society development in Bangladesh, kicked the bucket at a city medical clinic yesterday. He was 70.

"He has been experiencing pneumonia, breathing issues, diabetes and asthma for quite a while," Anjan Jahidur Rahim, leader of Bangladesh Short Film Forum, told UNB.

Toothless Barca held to a draw by defiant Lyon

Barcelona were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw at Olympique Lyonnais in their Champions League keep going 16 first leg on Tuesday as the two sides stayed undefeated in this current season's competiton.

The La Liga pioneers ruled the match at the Groupama arena however needed exactness in advance and were appreciative to their goalkeeper Marc Andre ter Stegen who made two incredible recoveries.

Lyon were enthusiastic in the primary half yet came up short on steam after the break and were hanging on in the end organizes as Lionel Messi attempted futile to open up the home protection.

The second leg will be at the Nou Camp on March 13.

OL mentor Bruno Genesio sprung an amazement by handling Martin Terrier on the left wing rather than Maxwell Cornet and the 21-year-old did not baffle.

Barcelona overwhelmed the ownership at an early stage, however Lyon had the initial two shots on target and it took several magnificent recoveries from Ter Stegen to deny the hosts.

He extended to one side to repel an awful low shot by Hassem Aouar in the fifth moment before making a one-gave spare to tip a 25-meter Terrier rocket onto his crossbar.

Barca forward Ousmane Dembele approached in the nineteenth moment when he spilled past Leo Dubois on the left flank, just for manager Anthony Lopes to deny him in a one-on-one.

The guests had the advantage with 25 endeavors however were strangely inefficient with just five on focus as they spurned a few counter-assaulting openings.

A Dembele endeavor shaved Lopes' post before Terrier skied his shot over the bar after a magnificent arrangement of one-twos shredded the Barca barrier as the two sides attempted to break the halt.

Lyon were under attack right off the bat in the second time frame however their safeguard was splendidly marshaled by Jason Denayer with Dubois likewise demonstrating unequivocal against Luis Suarez.

Lopes beat Messi's calculated shot away to keep his side dimension before Dembele was supplanted by Philippe Coutinho, who had a reasonable possibility in the 76th however was denied by in-structure Lopes.

Barca have now neglected to win any of their last six away recreations in the Champions League knockout stage, with their last triumph coming at Arsenal in February 2016.

The lack of youth participation that we see

Of late, I've gotten the opportunity to inquire about a great deal about the condition of youth joblessness in our nation. This included perusing numerous reports discharged by various national and global associations, articles composed by specialists from various fields of skill, just as passages of books by analysts concentrating on the different monetary and instructive parts of it. While it was obvious from before that the issue of youth joblessness is a noteworthy issue, just through this more profound research did it wind up evident exactly how enormous of an issue it genuinely is.

For instance, the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) evaluated youth joblessness rate to be 10.6 percent in its Labor Force Survey 2016-2017, while the general joblessness rate was not exactly 50% of that—4.2 percent. Be that as it may, as Dr Fahmida Khatun and Syed Yusuf Saadat notice in their book, The Ignored Generation: Exploring the Dynamics of Youth Employment in Bangladesh, "The thin meaning of joblessness utilized by the BBS depicts a lopsidedly little jobless populace," before proceeding to clarify, in detail, why that is the situation.

There are numerous explanations behind joblessness being so high among youngsters. Many are unpredictable monetary reasons. And afterward there are instructive reasons likewise, as indicated by the recently referenced study, joblessness among the more taught segments of youngsters is higher than their less taught countrymen, a pattern that has been on the ascent, as proposed by a similar study and by figures from different sources.

In any case, the measurement that is maybe most concerning is that 29.8 percent youngsters are not associated with either instruction, business or preparing (NEET)— that is more than one-fourth of every youngsters not partaking in any type of monetary or instructive exercises. Also, here is the place I'd like to take a gander at things from an alternate point of view.

Specialists, educationists and different specialists have had a great deal to state about the financial and instructive parts of why the adolescent are not taking an interest to such an extent. And each one of those are critical. In any case, the truth of the matter is that it isn't just on those two fronts that the young have been left minimized. There are other socio-political fields from which the adolescent have likewise been forgotten.

For instance, in 2018, the two noteworthy showings that we saw were both started and driven by youngsters—one was to request the decrease of standard in common administration employments, and the other to request expanded street security. What's more, the administration's response and reaction to them were telling.

In the two cases, the assessments and complaints of the youthful dissenters were not given much, assuming any, regard, to the degree that the organization wouldn't hear them out legitimately before gauging whether those suppositions or complaints had any legitimacy. That is the reason, rather than decreasing share for common administration occupations as proposed by the youthful dissenters, it was unconventionally discarded inside and out, in the wake of attempting and neglecting to disregard them for a significant lot of time at first. What's more, that is additionally why such blundering strategies were turned to against dissidents as youthful as school and school going kids. The organization thusly neglected to bring any similarity to wellbeing or request to the streets, regardless of making various elevated guarantees.

The reason I feature these two developments is on the grounds that they are a piece of a more profound issue—which, essentially, is this culture of a pretentious frame of mind on part of progressive governments towards the sentiments and sentiments of our youngsters, which in every case communicate in manners that send a similar message: "We know superior to you." Without ever even appropriately tuning in to what they need to state.

The main thing this does is unsettle youngsters, who have each motivation to imagine that they have literally nothing to do with the bearing their nation is going, the manner in which their general public is organized and working, no opportunity to create or express their own contemplations and, at last, no influence over or capacity to shape their very own lives. When they have been given this impression, the main determination that they can make is that they have no stake in their general public nor their nation. Furthermore, normally, for what reason would it be advisable for them to then try partaking in it?

Indeed, even our instructive foundations, which are presently a subject of much discourse, especially given the non-support of youngsters in financial and instructive exercises, as referenced prior, have also disappointed the adolescent, by cutting off a significant number of the roads for them to take an interest in the basic leadership process. For instance, the Dhaka University Order, 1973 states that the Senates of the four noteworthy state funded colleges—Dhaka University, Jahangirnagar University, Rajshahi University and Chittagong University—ought to have understudy delegates, so issues concerning the bigger understudy bodies inside those colleges, individually, can be communicated and tended to.

In any case, without any race being held in those colleges in decades, their Senates have excluded any understudies speaking to them through such popularity based practices. How at that point would students be able to tell the college experts the issues and worries that they have? Furthermore, without knowing those issues and concerns, by what method can the specialists hope to fathom them?

What's more, this, maybe, is characteristic of an a lot bigger issue. As we witness diverse segments of society scrambling to make sense of what turned out badly, and why youngsters are not taking part in the different exercises of the state, just as how to best comprehend them, what is as yet missing to a degree is the ticket and routine with regards to including those youngsters, whose fates are being examined and whose lives are in question.

What is additionally being missed is the way that youngsters, by their very nature, will in general be defiant, and despise especially being managed to and, indeed, never acknowledge the pushing down-one's-throat demeanor. Also, this isn't really a terrible thing. In any case, what this means is that we should figure out how to collaborate with them better, and be eager to pay enough regard to them to give them a reasonable hearing, in any event with regards to issues that worry them.

Something else, on the off chance that we keep driving them out of dialogs and basic leadership forms, regardless of whether they be financial, social or political, it would be gullible, best case scenario to expect any adjustment in the absence of youth interest that we right now observe, as it is our very own strategies and social mentalities that lie at its very foundation.

After the gathering with Mordaunt yesterday evening, State Minister Shahriar told journalists that the legislature had worked out some new procedures subsequent to checking on the general circumstance to manage the Rohingya repatriation issue.
