This week's program featured an interview with Supernumerary Professor Abul Quasem Fazlul Huq of Dhaka University who has written extensively on state, society politics, religion, philosophy, culture and history among other things over the past four decades. He is a staunch proponent of abolishing the principles of both secularism and state religion from the state constitution, which Professor Huq believes is the root cause of many issues in the modern Bangladesh state. In this interview he talks about the future form of state and the world order, and proposes a world government to deal effectively with the challenges posed by the forces of globalization and the west. This week's program was produced and presented by Obaidul Haque from Dhaka, Bangladesh.
