Bangladesh war crime

If you want to read a proper European report on the condemnation of Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin and Ashrafuzzaman Khan do not look in the Guardian, still less to the BBC.

Read le Monde today,

A special Bangladesh court has sentenced to death in absentia on Sunday a British and an American for their role in the torture and murder of 18 teachers, journalists or doctors during the struggle for independence waged against Pakistanin 1971.

It then goes on to describe Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin’s role in Britian and Ashrafuzzaman Khan’s in the US.

The article notably states,

A survey identified 1,175 private individuals – including Pakistani generals and Islamist allies in Islamabad at the time – suspected of having committed numerous crimes during the 1971 war, such as murder, rape and the forced conversion of Hindus to Islam .

According to the Government, the 1971 war led to three million deaths. Some  independent authorities believe that the total amounted to between 300,000 and 500,000 dead.

Victory to the Beloved Bangladeshi People!

  1. Dear Tendance – on behalf of the Bangladeshi people, thank you for this post. It reminded me that the demand for law & justice is not bound by geographic boundaries, nationalities or ideologies.

  2. Thanks Tendance, for your stance against genocide and war crime beyond the geographical boundary. Justice shall prevail.

  3. Thank you – I feel very strongly on this.

    I was there, demonstrating in London, at a very young age, (17) in support of the Bangladeshi people’s war of liberation.

  4. I dont know about you, but this Atiqur Rahman sounds dodgy. http://fugstar.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/deciphering-david-bergmans-lalon-geet.html

  5. Fuggy, this all sounds a bit too like the stuff my old Warwick Uni comrade Larry O’Nutter writes in Notes from the Borderland to be worth pursuing.
