Awami League leads Bangladesh towards chaos, failure and violence

Edit Date:8/10/2010 12:00:00 AM




Is Bangladesh hurtling towards Civil war? Is it moving towards confrontation with Bharat (aka India)? The last elections in December 2008 gave the Awami League a comfortable lead in the polls but the Bangladesh Nationalist Party and the Bangladesh Jamat e Islami claimed that the elections were rigged.

The BNP was on the verge of victory in the previous polls when the Indian sympathetic temporary government was imposed on Dhaka. The military backed government purged 14 million BNP supporter names from the polls so that the Awami League could claim victory. There was massive funding from Delhi for the Awami League and concerted campaign of malignment was waged against the BNP and the BJI. Since taken over power, Hasina Mujib has gone after the BNP and the BJI with a vengeance. Old skeletons have been pulled out of the old closets and Dhaka plans trials for those it thinks worked against the Bengali interests in 1971. Mrs Khaleda Zia was recently acquitted of the graft charges by a Bangladeshi court.

A list of dozens of men has been created. Indian backed forces are targeting all nationalistic parties. Bangladesh’s Jamaat-e-Islami party chief Motiur Rahman Nizami and Secretary General Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojahid have faced the brunt of the charges. The Awami Legue government of Bangladesh is also targeting “12 militant groups. They are; Jama’atul Mujahedeen Bangladesh (JMB), Harkatul Jihad al Islami (HuJI), Hizbut Towhid, Ulama Anjuman al Bainat, Hizb-ut-Tahrir, Islami Democratic Party, Islami Samaj, Touhid Trust, Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh, Shahadat-e al-Hikma Party Bangladesh, Tamira Ar-Din Bangladesh (Hizb-e Abu Omar) and Allahr Dal (Times of India, March 17). New groups are also coming into action… “outfit has emerged under the name of Islam-o-Muslim (IoM). The existence of IoM, a hitherto unknown group that security forces believe is a dissident breakaway faction of JMB, came to light when the Detective Branch (DB) of the Bangladesh police apprehended JMB terrorist Mustafizur Rahman (a.k.a Montu) in Dhaka’s Fakirerpol district on June 28…”

Not surprisingly, there has been a reaction from the religious right and those oppressed by the AL regime.

“After a relatively long period of calm, Islamist militancy in Bangladesh is showing new signs of life, even in the face of continuous crackdowns on terrorist infrastructure and activity by counterterrorism forces in the country….

One estimate suggested there were about 12,000 cadres actively operating in the country, mostly madrassa (Islamic seminary) teachers, students and clerics of mosques…. In April of this year, Bangladesh intelligence agencies declared that the Islamist terrorist groups are reorganizing with the aim of making a deadly comeback.Animesh Roul, executive director of the Society for the Study of Peace and Conflict in New Delhi, India, fretted recently about Bangladesh’s reemerging militancy at the Jamestown Foundation

The country is facing massive unprecedented violence which will not go away unless the Awami League doesn’t stop its sellout policies.

Bangladesh has experienced mass violence across the country. Recently, when innocent garment workers were killed by law enforcement agencies in Ashulia, violence erupted. Also recently, police arrested Mahmudul Haque Bhuiyan, the local president of a Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), in Brahmanbaria, a district in east-central Bangladesh, on specific charges of tender manipulation and abduction filed with the police. As the news of Mahmud’s arrest spread, angry activists of the Chhatra League damaged public property and carried out arson attacks in the town of Brahmanbaria. The whole town turned into a veritable battleground. Between January and March 2009, six serious acts of violence against women were instigated …The Root Of Violence: Politics Without Principles By William Gomes, 31 July, 2009, Countercurrents.org.

There are clear signs that there is a huge backlash against the Indianization of Bangladesh.

In June 2008, reports came quickly of the reemergence of … groups such as Jama’at ul-Mujahedeen Bangladesh (JMB), Allahr Dal, Harkat-ul Jihad al Islami (HuJI) and Hizb-ut Towhid (HuT). The revival was especially strong in the southwestern districts of Kushtia, Meherpur, Jhenidah, Magura, Chuadanga, Jessore, and Satkhira. Intelligence sources revealed that all these groups have maintained close operational ties and carried out …operations on Bangladeshi soil. One estimate suggested there were about 12,000 cadres actively operating in the country, mostly madrassa (Islamic seminary) teachers, students and clerics of mosques (Daily Star [Dhaka], June 12, 2008). In April of this year, Bangladesh intelligence agencies declared that the Islamist terrorist groups are reorganizing with the aim of making a deadly comeback (Daily Star, April 29). Animesh Roul.

Indian Hnduvata- Hindu extremism in India and beyond
Bangladesh was born in blood. This blood is represented on the red circle on the green flag of Bangladesh. Some say that the roots of Bangladeshi violence were sown by the events of 1970 when Indira Gandhi armed, trained, and sent Indian Army soldiers into Bengal to sow murder mayhem and chaos into the peaceful country. Many of these Indian soldiers wore the Pakistan Army uniform.

Shaikh Mujib declared Bangladesh independent on the the 16th of Decemeber 1971.

A dictatorship was created by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, known simply as Sheikh Mujib, when the Bangladesh Krishak Sramik Awami League was formed as a national party by decree on Feb. 24, 1975. Any political parties other than the political amalgamation of the Awami League were outlawed at the time. In the three decades since, the rulers added various aspects to the dictatorship that Sheikh Mujib had started.

The Rakhi Bahni was run by a serving Indian General and plans had been drawn up for the absorption of Bangladesh into the Indian Union.

Bangladesh 14th August 1975: Shaikh Mujib’s body lay in the streets of days
Torture and political killings were instituted in Bangladesh by a militia, Jatiyo Rakkhi Bahini, supportive of the government and by the government during the rule of Sheikh Mujib. Some people have also accused Gono Bahini, or the People’s Army, an underground gang loyal to the ultra-left political party Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal, for political killings, looting of police stations, armed robberies, and other acts of sabotage with the purpose of undermining law and order and tarnishing the image of Sheikh Mujib by spreading rumors about him…The growth of the BAKSAL was the single most important cause contributing to the death of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

On 14th August patriotic Bengalis assassinated the Indian agent, and threw his body on the streets of Dhaka where it lay for a week. All members of the Mujib family were killed. The only survivor was Hasina Mujib who was in Sweden at the time.

The current events remind analysts about the Mujib dictatorship and how it eliminated all opposition in the country.

Recently, the cabinet has approved a law to provide lifelong security for Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s family, effective immediately on July 6, 2009. The law is in line with previous legislation enacted in 2001, when the Awami League was in power, which was repealed by the BNP government that replaced them.

The law clearly contradicts the fundamental state policy of Bangladesh of “equality of opportunity.”

The present political regime is leading the nation toward another Islamic revolt. The underground Islamic movement is gaining more power than ever and human rights violations are increasing each and every day.

National challenges, dissatisfaction within the army, and the government’s inability to deal with the needs of the time has caused Mujib’s political regime to lead the country toward national failure. Hasina’s political regime is again leading the nation toward another national failure.
