I got the word ‘crazy horse’ in the speech of Nurul Haque, former VP of Daksh, Member Secretary of the People’s Rights Council, who became a leader after being beaten by the BCL. He said at a protest rally in Paltan last Saturday, ‘Today, Chhatra League and Juba League have been left reckless like crazy horses. They have attacked other parties and dissidents. Not only is it attacking, the country’s court premises have also been bloodied. ‘ Opposition parties have been critical of Nurul’s politics. He may not like me or you, but he is another discussion.
As soon as I heard the word mad horse, I remembered a famous song of Quddus Bayati. That is – ‘Where’s my crazy horse … Where’s Thaika?’ The character of the mad horse is like that আসলে from where to where, where from where to go, what not to do, what not to say, there is no exact address. As can be seen in all the video footage who attacked Chhatra Dal, some leaders and activists of Chhatra League have beaten them brutally with sticks, bamboo, rods and pipes. But the BCL says there was no attack or protest. Even the Chhatra League did not do that, it did the ‘ordinary students’, again it says, it did the ‘progressive students’.
