Bangladesh minister: Shoot protesting workers

Bangladeshi commerce minister, Hafizuddin Ahmed caused international outrage when he told an audience of assembled fat cats from the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters association that they should shoot workers during strikes.

Speaking to the congregated bosses, the former army major said: “Sometimes you have to be tough. You can wait for one or two incidents and then straight fire on the attackers to save your factories.”

In a bizarre effort to triangulate, the minister added: “The owners should increase the workers’ salary so that they can lead a decent life. At the same time, there should not be any unrealistic demand from the workers’ side as well.”

 Why not send a message to the Ministry of Commerce to tell them what you think??
