However, the care-taker government formed for 2007-2008 elections suo moto extended its mandate by another 23 months in violation of the Constitution.

Denial of basic human rights of any individual is tantamount to denying him the right to live in a civilized world. It suppresses the prospect of creativity of individuals and thus his ability to contribute in nation-building activities. The various rights, such as the right to free political thought gives a person opportunity to think and make appropriate choices towards building of institutions of public policy, which are then able to function fairly and independently.

মানুষের মনে যখন কোন ভাব মূর্ত হয়ে ওঠে তখন তা নাকি স্বতঃই ভাষায় প্রকাশ পায়। একটি ভাষা একটি সংস্কৃতির পরিচায়ক। আমাদের বৃদ্ধাঙ্গুলির মতো এর এক অনন্য বৈশিষ্ট্য রয়েছে। ভাষা কেবল একটি প্রকাশ-মাধ্যম নয়, প্রকাশের বিষয় ও বক্তব্যকে ভাষা রূপ, রস ও রঙে অর্থবহ করে তোলে। ভাষা, মাতৃভাষা ও রাষ্ট্রভাষা সম্পর্কে গত বাইশ-তেইশ বছর ধরে বিভিন্ন রচনায় লেখকের যেসব সাধারণ বক্তব্য প্রকাশিত হয় তা আজ একটি গ্রন্থে গ্রন্থিত হলো।
