A top Bangladesh’s ruling party leader indicts Facebook as the main cause of divorce and growing trends of detachment in study among students of all levels.

“95 percent divorce was caused due to Facebook. Students are being addicted to Facebook leaving study,” acting secretary general of ruling Awami League party, Mahbubul Alam Hanif, said on Thursday while addressing an anti-narcotic and safety road rally in capital Dhaka.

At least 30 million people in Bangladesh [mainly teenagers] are using social media, according to the Digital in 2018 report jointly prepared by We Are Social and Hootsuite.

It also showed that around 18 per cent of the country’s people are active social media users.

Interestingly, around 94 per cent of the social media users access the social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter through mobile phone devices.

Indicating to the rising trend of Facebook use, Hanif urged guardians to think over the evil factors again and again before providing their children with smartphone.  

He added, due to chatting through Facebook relations between husband and wife deteriorate rapidly, they become skeptical to each other.

“If there is five members in a family, they hardly sit together and share family matters; rather, all are engaged individually with Facebook,” Hanif observed.

He added that if country’s annual divorce record is 30 thousand, 95 percent is caused due to Facebook.  

About Feni’s madrasha student Nushrat murder incident, Hanif said that all responsible for that brutality will be served exemplary punishment so that none dares to repeat such crime.

Hanif also slammed authorities, who issue driving license and road permit, for unrestrained level of road crashes across the country.

“Most of the bus drivers, who served license are illiterate or half-literate, they do not know laws properly,” he said, adding that after every road accident lawsuit should also be filed against transport owners so that they are aware of appointing educated and expert drivers.       

Presiding over by Dhaka Municipality South general secretary of ruling Awami League party Shahe Alam Murad, the rally was also addressed by left political party, Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JASAD) executive president Moinuddin Khan Badal, general secretary of the Bangladesher Samyabadi Dal Dilip Barua, Jatiya Party (JP) secretary general Sheikh Shahidul Islam, JASAD general secretary Shirin Akter, Ganatantrik Party general secretary Shahadat Hossain, Dhaka Municipality South Awami League president Abul Hasnat and representatives from guardians and teachers.
