Dhaka terrorists did not belong to ISIS

Bangladeshi Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan maintains that the Islamists killed during a hostage crisis at a Dhaka restaurant were not members of the Islamic State terror group (ISIS/ISIL).

“They are members of the Jamaeytul Mujahdeen Bangladesh,” the minister told AFP, stressing that the terrorists that slaughtered 20 hostages, all of whom were foreigners,“have no connections with the Islamic State.” The Jamaeytul Mujahdeen Islamist group has been banned in Bangladesh for over a decade now.

Since the very beginning of the 11-hour siege that ended in the deaths of 26 people, six of whom were terrorists, the government has consistently denied that any internationally-linked terrorists were operating in Bangladesh. A seventh terrorist was arrested and is currently being interrogated.

Minister Khan specifically noted that most of the gunmen that were killed came from wealthy families and had been well educated.

“They are all highly educated young men and went to university. No one is from a madrassa,”the minister said, explaining that the young men had become Islamic extremists because “it has become a fashion.”

National Policy on Employment ;

National Policy on Employment ; PM Modi : On Q of employment the subject needs national policy but the youths are still not satisfied with employment opportunities. Talking to youths find that government is still not been able to provide jobs to youths and government of further taking stance on startup in form of employment is not direct employment provided. Where is the government is giving employment , is directly proportion to number of people unemployment in the nation.PM Modi on black money abroad is not terror money but ill gotten money which are heavens of tax offenders continue to work for offenders, PM Modi on harping on Social & Economic slogans but in ground realities lay static and unmoved.What ILO said about labour  NATIONAL EMPLOYMENT POLICIES – A guide for workers’ organisations v Quick overview A national employment policy is a vision and a practical, comprehensive plan for achieving a country’s employment goals. Countries need them because employment challenges are getting more and more complex: • Demographic trends are putting enormous pressure on labour markets. • Structural change in many countries represents a formidable opportunity as well as a huge challenge, as people move out of the agricultural sector and into the manufacturing or service sectors in the cities. • Economic growth does not automatically translate into more decent jobs and more benefits for the poor. • Informal employment—work that lacks social and legal protections and employment benefits—is still prevalent in the developing world. • Wage inequality is rising across the world, with workers benefitting less from economic growth. • An increasing number of those who work are counted among the working poor. • Secure, full-time employment with benefits is no longer the norm in the developed world. • There are more women in the labour force, but their quality of employment, including wages, working conditions and prestige, still lags behind men. • High youth unemployment is causing increasing numbers of young people to get discouraged and leave the labour market. The need for comprehensive national employment policies has been rising to the top of the agenda globally, especially in the wake of the 2008 world financial crisis. In this part of the guide, we tell you what has been happening, especially in developing countries. Trade unions need to be involved in setting policy directions for employment in their countries. No one speaks better for workers than their unions. But this new role goes well beyond trade unions’ traditional areas of concern and means of action. They will have to widen their agenda to deal with employment issues in a larger economic context. Unions will need stronger capacities to take part meaningfully in complex national policy debates, with well-researched arguments and credible representation from all parts of the labour force. They may need to build coalitions within organized labour in their countries to achieve a national labour voice, and they may need to build coalitions with like-minded organizations outside the labour movement
