In the recent election, the secular party in Bangladesh secured a victory over the Islamic party. ++ The election of Sheikh Hasin as PM marked a victory for those aspiring to democracy in the country, indicating that the majority of the people in Bangladesh desire a ‘'secular and stable future for their country [and] warm relations with their giant neighbor, India.'' ++ If the current attitude is to be maintained, the PM should address some of the core social problems, facilitate the provision of social services and fight corruption.
