Use of Loud Speakers

Dear Sir,
The use of loudspeakers in our part of Rajshahi has become a nuisance. Almost every night someone or other plays music on the loud-speaker. It is impossible to read or sleep with the loud-speaker blaring well into the night. I am not opposed to anybody enjoying music at home. But nobody has the right to force it on others, particularly at a time when people go to bed. I suggest that the district administration should impose restrictions on the use of loud-speakers in residential areas.


Yours faithfully,
Abdul Hakim

The editor
The Bangladesh Times

Dear Sir,
I am in complete agreement with Mr. Hasan who in his letter (the Bangladesh Times, 13 April 2018) argued for festival bonuses for pensioners. Employs of the state and autonomous bodies are given two festival bonuses a year. But when they retire, they are denied this. With the cost of living rising sharply, most pensioners find in difficult to make both ends meet. True, they get a lum sum in addition to the pension. But many of them not only spends the lum sum but also get into debt in building a house. So they can hardly afford the expenses religious festivals involve. The government can during some sunshine into the pensioners’ minds by giving them festival bonuses. This will mean an extra expenditure, but it should not be difficult for the government to find the money involved. What is necessary is to make some adjustments or cuts here and there. Surely people who devoted the best part of their lives to the service of the nation deserve in their old age sympathetic consideration in this respect from the government.


Yours faithfully,
Abdul Momin
