The Judicial Murder

At the end, Shaikh Hasina’s autocratic regime could successfully hang one of her political foes. The hanged man was Abdul Qader Mollah –the assistant secretary general of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI). But that is not the end of Hasina’s politics of vendetta: many more are waiting in the row to be shortly hanged. The so-called International Crime Tribunal (ICT) –although entirely homemade without any foreign jurist, lawyer or observer in its midst, has already declared death penalty for another four. And, many more of the JI and Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) leaders are languishing in the court for the same verdict. Hasina has declared in a seminar in Dhaka on 14th December that no amount of telephone call can stop her from hanging these people. It is an explicit reference to her recent dishonouring to such calls from world dignitaries. The UN secretary general Ban Ki Moon, the USA secretary of state Mr John Kerry, the Turkish Prime Minister Mr Erdogan personally rang Mrs Hasina to stop hanging of Mr Mollah.  But such telephone calls could not persuade her to show them any decent response. Now she is publicly announcing: neither such calls will work in the future. She is arrogant enough to finish her foes with the help of the country’s subservient judiciary. Hence, many more judicial killing are in the offing.

Crisis in Egypt and the Army’s Roadmap for War PDF Print E-mail

Egypt on warpath

On July 3, 2013, after overthrowing the country’s first elected president, the Army Chief General Abdul Fattah Sisi made an announcement of a roadmap for democratic Egypt. He described the army takeover as the continuation of the revolution of January 2011 -which ended 30 years’ rule of Hosni Mubarak. Now the real intention of the army is exposed. The so-called roadmap was declared only to cover up their crimes against Egyptian people’s democratic choice for Dr Morsi as the president. But when the peaceful protest rally started against the coup, he needed another announcement. He declared a war against terrorism. The army chief discovered terrorism all on a sudden. Terrorism didn’t exist in Egypt before the coup; hence the country didn’t need any war. General Sisi manufactured the war only to justify the sustenance of rule of the coup-leader. Now the country is on a bloody warpath. After the massacre of thousands, the arrests of thousands and the release of the deposed Mubarak from his life-term imprisonment, it is now clear that the army’s roadmap was not for democracy, nor for continuation of the revolution, but for taking the country back to tyranny much worse than the Mubarak era.

The terror industry and the war

The Muslim country’s problem is not only the military occupation by its external enemies, but also have enough home-made enemies to cause bloody internal occupation. Many of the horrendous massacres are indeed caused by these internal enemies. Egypt and Syria are the two recent examples. After a very short gap of only a year, the Egyptian military is again fully back to the power. The country is now highly polarised and has deep internal split. It is divided into two main camps: one is Islamic and the other is secularist. Out of this polarised division, Egypt had a long political strife, but luckily had no internal war. But now, the army has manufactured fully fledged war out of these divisive ingredients and has named it as “war against terror”. They have turned cities like Cairo, Alexandria, Port Said, Arish and others into full war zones. Tanks, artillery guns, helicopters, armoured vehicles, machine guns and thousands of war-ready troops are back in the streets.

The war of annihilation

The ruling Bangladesh Awami League (BAL) and its political cronies have launched a genocidal war against its own people. The aim is to annihilate the resurgent Islamists. The country’s constitution provides basic human rights to all of its citizens –irrespective of their race, religion and political belief. That entails full freedom in politics. So, everyone should have the equal rights in rallying on streets, venting views in meetings, and expressing opinions in TV, newspapers and other media outlets. But the BAL-led ruling ultra-secular clique is not ready to give such rights to the Islamists. They think the country belongs only to them, no to the Islamists. They also claim that in 1971 Bangladesh was created out of Pakistan only for practicing secularist plus nationalist politics, not for political Islam. So after coming to power in 2008, the BAL government gives unfettered rights to the anti-Islamic radical activists to hold rally for any number of days or months on any streets of Dhaka. They are so hardcore anti-Islamist that a constitutional announcement like “we trust in Allah” was not acceptable to them. So such sentence inserted in non-BAL era was deleted. For more than 2 months, the secularist cronies of BAL were instigated to occupy Shahbag – Dhaka’s one of the busiest traffic hubs to demand death sentence for all arrested Islamists and to ban all Islamic political parties. But such right was not given to the Islamists to hold any rally in Dhaka’s any street corner for even a single hour.

India’s War in Bangladesh PDF Print E-mail

The War in New Phase

Enemy’s war never ends: only changes its strategies and frontiers. India’s war against the subcontinents’ Muslims did not end in 1947, 1965 or 1971. It still continues. And Bangladesh is the perpetual battleground. The Muslims of Bangladesh are given no time to relax. They can only survive such on-going onslaught if they can identify and defeat the enemy strategies, and purge their foot-soldiers out of the midst. A body cannot live a long life with killer bugs inside. And Bangladesh has enough of them. The political border between Bangladesh and India still exist -even after the break-up of Pakistan in 1971. But Bangladesh Awami League (BAL) and their ally have been very successful to remove the country’s cultural boundary –especially between the BAL followers and the Indians. And culture has a dominant and defining role on politics. Hence, the vision of BAL leaders is seldom different from that of a Bengali Hindu. Bangladesh’s international border has been made irrelevant to bring into prominence such mutual cultural and political bondage between these two sets people living in two sides of the border. Recent 3 days’ official visit of Mr. Pranab Mukharjee –the Indian President, to Dhaka amidst 3 days’ dawn to dusk wheel-jam strike was primarily arranged to demonstrate India’s commitment to such bondage. Mr. Mukharjee directly delivered the promise of India’s unrelenting support to the troubled Prime Minister Mrs. Hasina Wajed.
