Will Bangladeshis get justice after 43 years. I doubt it!
This is shameful. It dishonors all those Bangladeshis who fought and died in the war of independence from Pakistan.
The latest news is that an Islamist leader, Abdul Quader Mollah, convicted of war crimes was spared execution. He has been given a life term. Mollah,64, is assistant secretary general of Jamaat-e-Islami of the country’s biggest Islamist party. You know what this means?
Bangladesh became part of Pakistan at the end of British rule in 1947 but broke away in 1971 after a war between Bangladeshi nationalists, backed by India, and Pakistani forces that cost 3 million lives, saw thousands of women raped, and forced nearly one million people to flee to India.
– Some factions in what was then East Pakistan opposed the break with Pakistan, and numerous abuses were committed during the nine-month war. Jamaat-e-Islami denies accusations that it opposed independence and helped the Pakistani army.
It appears that the Jamaat-e-Islami, a powerful Islamic political party controls Bangladesh and it is the followers of this ruthless party that has taken complete control of Bangladesh.
Incidentally, large amounts of money has/is being transferred from Pakistan to the Jamaat-e-Islami to help it take complete control of this beautiful country, Bangladesh!
What a pity that Bangladesh is being controlled by right wing Islamic thugs.
Will history repeat itself?
– I suppose if one wants to control people – put the fear of God and the resident mullah in them.
