"Dhaka's Messy Surgery"

Himal Southasian magazine fell foul of Bangladesh authorities for carrying an editorial, which said the country was under a military regime, and also for an analysis of the caretaker government actions written by an anonymous writer, both published in the May issue.
And Dhaka ordered the distributors of the publication to remove the report, “The Dhaka Regime’s Messy Surgery" and the editorial, “Khaki politics in Dhaka,” which hold the Bangladesh army responsible for derailing the democratic process and criticise the manoeuvres to send former prime ministers Begum Khaleda Zia and Sheikh Hasina into exile as having longterm effects on democracy, reports Gulf Times.
The Asia Media Forum, with permission from Himal Southasian, published both the article and the editorial.
