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.

25 Nov 2012

The Day of Ashura is on the 10th day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks the climax of the Mourning of Muharram.
It is commemorated by Shi'a Muslims as a day of mourning for the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala on 10 Muharram in the year 61 AH (in AHc: October 9 and in AHt: October 10, 680 CE).

For Shi'as, commemoration of Ashura is not a festival, but rather a sad event, while Sunni Muslims view it as a victory God has given to his prophet, Moses . This victory is the very reason, as Sunni Muslims believe, Muhammad mentioned when recommending fasting on this day.Sunnis also commemorate this day as the day of victory for Islam. The martyrdom of Hussain, gave new life to the message of Islam. Sunnis gather at the mosques, to remember the noble sacrifice made by Hussain and his companions, hold seminars and take out procession in the remembrance of this great martyr of Islam.
For Shi'as, it is a period of intense grief and mourning. Mourners, congregate at a Mosque for sorrowful, poetic recitations such as marsiya, noha, latmiya and soaz performed in memory of the martyrdom of Husayn
