Islamic political parties called a half-day strike in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012. More than two dozen Islamic parties in Bangladesh want the country to be governed by Sharia, or Islamic law. A coalition of leftist parties want the Islamic parties to be banned because they oppose the constitutional provision that says Bangladesh be governed by secular law. This conflict as well as other related political issues has caused Dhaka to spiral into chaos over the past few weeks.
