AR Sumon Khandaker Azizur Rahman

I Khandaker Azizur Rahman am a business graduate living in Dhaka, Bangladesh. At 2009 I started photography. My photography graduation is still going on. I am very much interested about human life and along with its natural environment. From my childhood I wanted to roam around places and was interested to meet new people. In my country my observation is people behave differently according to their region, culture and religion but from surface the behavior is not so different. I would like to share it thus people like me on the other corner of the planate can know my country through my images. And I want to know the other people who live other side of the globe.
Currently I am using a Canon EOS 5D Mark 2, lens is a 50mm lens. I usually correct my photos with photoshop.

Violent Unrest in Bangladesh
Tongi, Bangladesh
By Khandaker Azizur Rahman
21 Jan 2015

Arson attacks, killing and injuring scores, have become more frequent amid political unrest in Bangladesh. The human rights situation continues to deteriorate as the government and opposition supporters have battled each other in the streets of Dhaka and other major cities since the January 3, 2015.

Street violence continues to claim lives and lead to injuries, against the background of an opposition-imposed blockade on transportation. To stop the violence security forces have announced their intention to open fire on anyone suspected of carrying a bomb. Violations of the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly are occurring in the context of a long standing conflict between the governing Awami League party, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, and the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), led by Begum Khaleda Zia. Both leaders have alternated in government since the early 1990s.

The current BNP street protests are in response to the January elections, which it had boycotted. The party (BNP) had demanded that the elections must be held under a caretaker government as they had since 1996. The government responded that with the changes to the constitution, a caretaker government was not possible and offered to hold elections under an interim all-party government headed by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The BNP rejected the offer. Consequently, the Awami League and its allies won the majority of seats in the elections without contest, more than half of them uncontested.

This year, the BNP announced plans for protest rallies from 5 January to mark its opposition to the outcome of those elections, calling on the government to resign and for new elections to take place. Government supporters also began preparing for counter rallies. Police banned all rallies, saying this was to prevent violent clashes between government and opposition supporters. In response, the BNP called on its supporters to observe an indefinite nationwide blockade on cars and buses until the ban was lifted. In addition, police cordoned off the office of the BNP leader, Begum Khaleda Zia on January 3.

More than 100 vehicles and buses have been set on fire since January 5, when the opposition declared a transport blockade, with the government and opposition blaming each other for the violence. Unidentified people have hurled bombs at cars or buses, before fleeing the scene. Scores of people have been injured and more than a dozen killed in these arson attacks. Among the dead were four people whose bus was travelling from Kurigram to Dhaka when doused with petrol and set on fire on January 13. Six other passengers in that bus were reportedly injured in the attack and needed hospital treatment. A similar attack on a bus on January 19 caused severe burn injuries to at least two women after a petrol bomb was hurled at it in Rajshahi.

Bishshow Iztema 2014

Bishshow Iztema 2014
The Bishwa Ijtema the World or Global Congregation or Meeting is an annual Tablighi Jamaat Islamic movement congregation held at Tongi, Bangladesh by the river Turag. It is the 2nd largest Muslim congregation in the world after the Hajj. The event focuses on prayers and supplication and does not allow political discussion.
The first meeting was reportedly held in 1946 (although various sources indicate other dates for this) and continues to be organized by the Bangladesh Tablighi Jamaat. It lasts three days and is attended by over five million Muslims, making it one of the largest congregations after the Hajj to Mecca and the gathering of Muslims in Karbala, Iraq to commemorate. Ijtema was initiated by an Indian savant named Muhammad Ilyas al-Kandhlawi and began as a small group of religious-minded individuals gathering at a local mosque. For forty-one years Tongi has been the chosen location, although similar programs are held on a lesser scale in other countries. The Ijtema is non-political, and therefore it draws people of all persuasion. Prayer is held for the spiritual adulation, exaltation and welfare of the Muslims community. This immensely popular program gives the people of Bangladesh an opportunity to interact with Muslims from other countries and is commonly attended by prominent political figures.
The congregation takes place at an area comprising 160 acres (0.65 km2) of land (0.25 square mile). Devotees from approximately 150 countries, including the host country, Bangladesh, attend the three-day Ijtema seeking divine blessings from Allah. In recent years, over seven thousands foreign delegates attend the congregation each year. Special rates are provided by Bangladesh Biman's world wonder fund.
