A brother in facebook has asked me to write to UN, and human rights organization highlighting the dire human rights abuses that we are currently witnessing in Bangladesh. His concern is shared by 160 million local Bangladeshi as well as many millions of Bangladeshi living all over the world. But my respond to him out of frustration was that, Jamat has been lobbying Human Rights Organization, UN, European Parliament, British Parliament and numerous heads of state to stop the unfair, biased ICT in Bangladesh for the last five years. In spite of so many reports, so many interventions from world leaders, Sheikh Hasina damn cared any of them. She did what she wanted to do, because she had her mind fixed since 2007, and in all this her only trusted accomplice is her big brother India. So writing to UN and others at this stage will have no positive effect on the ground. Nor UN or USA is going to come physically to help us and no meaningful pressure will be applied.
However, I suggested my friend to take some practical step nearer to home, that he can advice Begum Zia to come out open to the press, and make a live statement to the public saying the following: “Dear country men, as you know I have tried my level best to come to a compromise with the Prime Minister, I even accepted election under premiership of the President, the speaker or their party man AK Khondokar for the sake of democracy, but the Prime Minister would not listen to any of our proposal. She is adamant to conduct a one sided election on the advice of a particular country. I would vehemently make it clear that any election without the opposition will mean an invalid, illegitimate government without people’s mandate, and as such, we reserve the right to cancel any international agreement made by this illegitimate Awami government. When we will come to power all these agreements will be null and void.” This statement will send a strong signal to India that winner takes all will not happen in Bangladesh. She should make it known that people of Bangladesh will not recognize this government and therefore, she should call on the people to go for an indefinite strike until the government falls. Even if she is not able to give any further statement, the people should follow her orders until she makes another live statement in front of the people. She should also speak like Sheikh Hasina often speaks, that force will be used against force. Deaths will be answered with appropriately means. Either Bangladesh will be free from oppression and tyranny or no peace for anyone trying to hijack our democratic rights.
Begum Zia should also make it clear to Bangladesh Arm forces, BGB, RAB and police that they should work in the interest of the people and not against them, They should not carry out killings on the order of the illegitimate government. She should follow on her statement with the argument that how can government orders be carried out by the Army when almost 154 parliamentary seats have been won without any votes. There is clearly no mandate from the overwhelming majority of the people to have any legitimacy to rule our country. She should also make it clear that any attempt to marginalize Bangladeshi Jamati Islam will be detrimental to peaceful co-existence in our society, as they are an inclusive part of our society, whose supporters are born and brought up in the same land as we. Therefore, politics of hate based on religious and political prejudice should not be supported or adhered to. Bangladesh freedom came for all and not for a few.
Sheikh Hasina and her Indian agent are doing the biggest deception to our people by playing the war crimes card. Some opposition politicians have already fallen in to this trap, and in many ways in the past have supported Awami Government to cling on to power to the disadvantage, and harm of their own party’s interest. There had been wide rumours in the air that Awamileague had brought many
At many times, I have noticed that many talk show pundit would hesitate to speak about the process and unfairness of the war crime Tribunal collusion between the judges, prosecution and the government, they fear being accused of supporting Jamat Shibir, even though they themselves know that the whole process is a government concocted drama only for political gains. Now we are seeing the same lacklustre agitation program from
In a recent report carried out in USA based newspaper Tikana, it is believed from a source that Sheikh Hasina has been given assurance from India that in case her holding on to power becomes untenable, India would rescue her to safety. Meanwhile their prescription is to continue with one sided election without giving
