What does it mean to have

Individual Freedom

As a Bangladeshi?

Freedom? What is Freedom? In the broadest of definitions, Freedom is the idea of Individual Freedom – and should therefore be aspired by all Freedom-loving people in the world. Unfortunately, reality is not that simple. The well sounding term Liberalism is often misunderstood. Some misrepresent Liberalism because they don’t know better, others distort liberal ideas because they fear the liberating force of Freedom.

Then, what does Individual Freedom mean in a Bangladeshi context? And what does it mean to have Individual Freedom in a nation proud to have fought and sacrificed lives to be free?

To find original answers to these questions, we are organising this Essay Writing Competition – an exercise about Individual Freedom in Bangladesh for liberals and non-liberals alike. For in a true liberal spirit everyone is invited to join and share. With but a few qualification.
