Alliance for a Secular and Democratic South Asia


Corruption and Capitalism in Bangladesh and Pakistan

A talk by

Professors Anu Mohammad


Rakhshanda Saleem

Saturday 2pm - Oct 6th 2012

Room 4-237
77 Mass Ave, Cambridge

The fire that claimed the lives of 300 garment workers in Karachi, Pakistan this September is not an anomaly but the inevitable consequence faced by workers with near non-existent negotiation powers in Bangladesh and Pakistan.  Professors Muhammad and Saleem will discuss the corruption in the nexus of state and global capital - from garments industry to open-pit coal mining and offshore oil exploration.

 Professor Anu Muhammad is a professor of economics in Dhaka, Bangladesh and is one of the leading activists to expose and organize against the machinations of predatory capitalism in Bangladesh, including against open pit coal mining on rich agricultural land.  Professor Rakhshanda Saleem, a neuro-psychologist and professor at Lesley University has been a long standing member of The Alliance for a Secular and Democratic South Asia in Cambridge, MA.
