It is not unreasonable to believe that our considerations and opinions on a variety of controversial topics are influenced by knowledge gained through film. It has received multiple international awards for the distinctiveness of Bangladeshi films, but due to a lack of specialized assistance, the film has been left behind in Bangladesh. Bangladesh's film industry isn't solely focused on its work, which causes unrest among the local population. The establishment of a legal film city studio with adequate offices will be the start of some significant advancement in the film industry. Film is also depicted in this study as a venue where current social and political fights and states of a nation are addressed in a brief discussion of moving time. Political movements are solely associated with and influenced by living souls. This study discusses the highlights of the film that reflect social, political, and social developments and contribute to the shaping of reality.</p> Md Khairul Islam , Muhammad Sajidul Islam, Sabbir Hasan Copyright (c) 2021 CenRaPS Journal of Social Sciences https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://journal.cenraps.org/index.php/cenraps/article/view/60 Mon, 13 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0600 COVID-19 Pandemic: An Islamic Analysis https://journal.cenraps.org/index.php/cenraps/article/view/57 <p>The study's purpose is to analyse the prevention of the Covid-19 Pandemic in the light of the Holy-Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh)’s Sunnah. Just as a Pandemic, disaster, or calamity in the world has some external causes, it also has some internal and subtle reasons. Islam considers the plague as a punishment in a natural and broad sense; simultaneously, Islam believes this epidemic to be a test and a warning for the believer. Besides, Islam thinks that dangers and calamities happen according to Almighty Allah's judgment. Islam always gives the idea of a healthy-capable human group. There are 'Kitabut Tib' or medical chapters in almost all Hadith texts regarding the importance of health and treatment. The golden branch of Islam was the development of a particular scripture called the Prophet in Tibet. If there is a Pandemic in a specific area, Islam prescribes quarantine and lockdown. Modern medical systems embraced this warning fourteen hundred years ago as the only way out. In this context, Muhammad (pbuh) said people would not enter the area affected by the pandemic. Besides, people will not go out of where the epidemic has spread <em>[1]</em>. The damage caused by the outbreak could have been drastically reduced if the hadith teachings had been implemented at this critical time in the Coronavirus's presence. To survive the Coronavirus, the World Health Organization (WHO) always says to stay clean. Islamic law orders a Muslim who believes that he is immaculate at every stage of his life.&nbsp; The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: Cleanliness is a part of faith [2]. There are various dispositions of the Shari'a that have been prescribed as a means of attaining holiness. According to medical science's advice, Islam advises taking treatment and taking precautionary measures in a Pandemic of any disease.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Saeyd Rashed Hasan Chowdury, Prof. Dr. Md.

Although the local government system in Bangladesh is very old, it has tiny achievements in terms of its effectiveness, decentralisation of power, democratic practices, and public participation. After the country's independence, almost all the governments have come up with the innovation of different levels of local government structures was just nomenclature. They never allowed the local people to enjoy autonomy by their elected representatives in the way directed by the constitution. On the other hand, various local and international development partners have been implementing various programs to strengthen the local government system in Bangladesh, decentralise it and ensure public engagement in local government. Through which some positive elements have been added to the issue of autonomy and participation of the people in the local government system; however, it is significantly minor than required. This research paper seeks to understand the process of democratisation and decentralisation in the local government system of Bangladesh by fieldwork-based research knowledge and review various initiatives taken for the development of the local government system. Besides, drawing on literature and the observations and research on Union Parishad (the lowest tier of local government in Bangladesh), the interrelationship between local government elections and power structure has also been analysed in this article. Ultimately, this paper argues that the process of decentralisation and strengthening of the local government system in Bangladesh through development interventions. Though the interventions of development programs could have been mammoth achievements in the path of democratisation and decentralisation, the party politicisation has made massive impediments to attain the targets.</p> Abul Hossain, Ahsan Habib Copyright (c) 2021 CenRaPS Journal of Social Sciences https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://journal.cenraps.org/index.php/cenraps/article/view/58 Sun, 19 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0600
