Previous report: By Jahangir Alam Akash, Another two Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) members tortured and struggle for their life while they were in safe custody. The tortured were admitted to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on 14th September, 2009. They were tortured by the members of Task Force for Interrogation (TFI) cell during questioning about BDR mutiny case. Members of the TFI cell and New Market police admitted them at around 5:00pm. Source: the daily Star, 15th September, 2009.
Sources said, the ailing BDR members are Reazul Islam, 22, of Battalion-5 in Khagrachhari, and Mohammad Arafat, 24, of Battalion-13 in Dhaka. Both the BDR members were present at BDR Headquarters during the so-called mutiny on February 25-26. They bore severe injury marks on their knees, which indicate they suffered torture, sources added.
While lying on the DMCH bed, one of the BDR members said, "We were tortured brutally during the interrogation since we had been taken to the TFI cell on 10th September, 2009." New Market Police Station officer-in-charge told, "We were told from Pilkhana over phone about the sickness of two BDR members and then our men took the members to hospital." Asked about the sickness of the two members, Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police Abdul Kahar Akand of CID said, "I heard about the sickness but yet to know the cause as they were being interrogated under TFI cell." "We have taken 16 more jawans on Thursday for interrogation under TFI cell," Akand, also the main investigating officer of the mutiny case, added.
Mentioned that, at least 39 BDR members were unnaturally death and most of were died after brutal tortured. The authority couldn't submit the investigation report about unnatural death of the BDR members in last long four months. The probe committee has demand another two months for investigation.
Who were the masterminds of so-called BDR mutiny nation couldn't know. When would be clear about mutiny we don't have no idea. Because, in Bangladesh after every incident from government side says, 'we would find out the culprits and they should be punished'. But, after some day's masterminds of the said incident goes to more dark. It's a culture of Bangladesh. And the killers, criminals are always getting impunity.
On 25-26th February, 2009 at Pilkhana BDR headquarters some of BDR members were revolt and during that time they were mass killings to the meritorious army, looting their money, gold and other wealth's, mass raped to army officers wife, daughter. By so-called mutineers killed at least 75 persons including 58 meritorious army officers. It was a gross human rights violation after the brutal killings of the father of the nation Bangabondhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in Bangladesh.
We want to see fair trial about the real and accused mutineer. We know that, some BDR members already died after torture during the detention. Whole nation are waiting for see the justice regarding BDR mutiny. We also want to see the enquiry report about BDR mutiny and killings.

Previous report: ‘‘MP ism’ and press freedom in Bangladesh’ By Jahangir Alam Akash, In Bangladesh press freedom attacked by the law makers of ruling party Bangladesh Awami League. One after another attacked on journalist by ruling party men, but the government hasn’t taken any action against the perpetrator of journalists. Journalist’s killings, tortures and oppression are very common feature in Bangladesh. The present government of Bangladesh has committed to the peoples for mass media freedom. But, in practice hasn’t like commitment.

The latest Patuakhali incident apart, harassment either in the form of physical torture or filing false cases is on the rise in recent days across the country. At least 130 journalists felt prey to various types of harassments in the country since January (reports Odhiker). Two journalists were killed, 46 injured, 11 assaulted, 13 attacked, one abducted, 43 threatened and three sued in past eight months till August. Unidentified terrorists at Mirer Bazar in Gazipur killed the executive director of ‘Samprotik Somoy’ MM Ahsan Bari on August 26 this year. A total of 25 journalists were killed in last 16 years in the country.

After gross threatening two journalists from Patuakhali and Chuadanga were flew from their home district with their family. The flu journalists are Israt Hossain Lipton from Patuakhali and Shah Alam from Chuadanga. Both of them working for the bengali daily Prothom Alo. On the other hand government has been withdrawn the cases against ruling party men as a political motivated case which were filed in the regime of army backed caretaker government. But, the political motivated and false-fabricated cases against journalists which were filed in the same regime are still pending. Though, the government has declared the cases against journalists would be withdrawn.

The reports of the two journalist siblings on encroachment on a river in coastal Patuakhali drew flak from local ruling party lawmaker and a number of ‘false cases’ were filed against them reportedly under political instigations. Four cases were filed one after another against the two journalists of the Prothom Alo and the Amar Desh at Golachipa in Patuakhali–Israt Hossain Lipton and Saimon Rahman Alit–in last one week allegedly by the cronies of Awami League lawmaker Golam Moula Roni. Reports: the daily Star, 18.9.2009.
Sources said, the cases were filed in a bid to avenge their reports on grabbing land on a riverbank and setting up a market under the direct patronage of the local lawmaker, family of the journalists claimed.
The Prothom Alo and the Amar Desh carried the reports on August 21 and on August 27, 2009. Lipton’s wife and daughter left their Golachipa town residence and moved to their village home amidst repeated threats from ruling party cadres, family members claimed. On September 8, Moslem Bayati filed an extortion case against two journalist brothers with local police station at Galachipa. The second case a rape charge against Lipton was filed by one Nilufa Begum, wife of Selim of Chhotoshiba village under Char Kajal union in the upazila, on September 10, 2009.

Same source told, Laizu Begum, another woman of the same area, filed an extortion case against Lipton and Alit claiming that they took Tk 9,000 from her assuring her of allotting a house under Sidr recovery programme implemented by the Prothom Alo. The last case was filed by Hamidullah of Golachipa municipality area on September 13, 2009 claiming that Lipton and Alit took Tk 30,000 from him promising that a house under the same programme would be allotted to him. While police registered all these cases against the Prothom Alo and Amar Desh Golachipa correspondents, they have so far declined to entertain a case filed by a journalist on September 9, 2009 on charge of attacks on newsmen by the cadres loyal to local MP.

Patuakhali district correspondent for RTV Saluddin filed the case accusing 20/25 persons, all known as cronies of local lawmaker including Israt Hossain Abbas, president of BCL Golachipa upazila unit, as they attacked on two journalists Salahuddin, and Abu Taher Bappa, district correspondent for Bangla Vision, on September 9 when they were going to Golachipa from Patuakhali for their professional duties. A RAB-8 team rescued the journalists from the gang’s grip after two hours on the day. The ruling party cadres also kept confined three more journalists–Sankar Lal Das, Patuakhali correspondent for the daily Prothom Alo and ABC Radio, Khondokar Delwar Jalali, Patuakhali correspondent for Channel One and Hanjala Shihab, Patuakhali correspondent for Digonta TV, on the day in an attempt to prevent them from covering river grabbing issue. Benapol correspondent of the daily Sangbad Debul Kumar Das was seriously injured by a group of criminals at Benapol in Jessore on 13 August, 2009.

In Chuadanga, the Amar Desh correspondent Dalim Hossain has been put behind bars after a ruling party lawmaker from Chuadanga, Solaiman Haque Joarder Salon and his brother municipality mayor Reazul Islam filed a case on September 1 against 80 including two journalists Dalim Hossain and Shah Alam of the Prothom Alo.

Mr. Motiur Rahman, a prominent and pioneer journalist and the editor of famous national Bengali daily Prothom-Alo wrote with a commentary column about the present situation of press freedom in Bangladesh. (Source: Prothom-Aöo, 17th September, 2009). We congratulate to him for his informative and very good write-up. The regime of BNP-Jammat hundreds journalists were brutally tortured and some many were killed. We don’t have any idea in that time how many special column he had written about press freedom?
We know very well to Mr. Rahman. He is playing glorious role in the media world in Bangladesh from long time. We saw when the journalists of Prothom-Alo attacked then he raised voice against journalist’s repression. See the link: http://www.drishtipat.org/blog/2007/10/30/meet-the-tipu-sultan-of-2007/
In the regime of army backed caretaker government many journalists were brutally tortured by army. Even, a cartoonist Arifur Rahman of Prothom-Alo was arrest by the pressure of Islamic group. Tasneem Khalil of the daily Star was brutal tortured by DGFI. But, Mr. Rahman was silent in that time, even still.
And I also illegally arrested, inhumanly tortured and detained by army (RAB) in the same regime. Still I have been facing two false and fabricated cases.
Please watch my torture history: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xzaCRYCkqs (BIHR part-1)

I was victimized with four false, fabricated and political motivated cases in the regime of caretaker government.

Our hope, the government should keep and protect the press freedom as their commitment. Without press freedom we can’t imagine democracy. So, for the peace, rule of law and democracy have very essential to safe the press freedom. We have demand to the government that, please bring to the perpetrators of all killers-torturers and protect human rights, democracy, peace, rule of law and constitution. We don’t want MP ism, but we want to peace, rule of law, actual democracy, equality and justice. 18.9.2009

Now stands extra judicially killed peoples totally 94 from January, 7 to September 26, 2009 in Bangladesh. Our demand is that, the government should immediately stop all types of extrajudicial killings as well as human rights violation.
Previous report:
Crossfire go on-Sheikh Hasina!
By Jahangir Alam Akash, The government of Bangladesh has taken the line extra judicial killings. Being a Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also said extra judicial will go on. Though she was not told directly but she said indirectly clearly in favour of crossfire. It is very unfortunate for rule of law, democracy, constitution, Universal Declaration of human rights as well as the peoples of Bangladesh which was told our popular Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in New York . Sheikh Hasina talked with journalists in New York on 27th September, 2009. In that time on 'crossfire' she said, "I do not believe in extrajudicial killings. But if anyone launches an armed attack (on a law-enforcer), then none can get killed like sitting ducks." Source: Bdnews24.com
So, now we can say that, BNP-Jammat government was correct regarding crossfire? What about her (Sheikh Hasina) expression in this point, nation wants to know. Before her, Home Minister and state minister for Home were told same words.

Previous report: ‘Extra judicial killings and Awami League government’
By Jahangir Alam Akash, In Bangladesh going on gross human rights violation by the extra judicial killings. We seems government don’t want to obey the rule of law, constitution, Universal Declaration of human rights. Otherwise they would try to stop state killings in the name of so-called gunfight, encounter or crossfire.
Two more peoples were killed in extra judicial killings by police and RAB. The killed Johnny, 28, was killed on 26th September at Mirpur in Dhaka by police. Another killed Mohon was killed by police and RAB on same day at Doulotpur in Kushtia. Both of killed are accused criminals. With these two, 92 were killed by state forces in last January, 7 to September 26, 2009.

Previous report about extra judicial killings: ‘90 were killed extra judicially’
By Jahangir Alam Akash, Why the present government become a killers? Day by day increasing the killings of extra judicial killings in Bangladesh. Another three were killed in extra judicial killings on 25th September, 2009. With these at least 90 peoples were killed by the state forces RAB-police in the name of so-called crossfire or encounter or gunfight in the present Mohajote (grand alliance) government led by Bangladesh Awami League from January, 7 to September 25, 2009.

Another attempted to the extra judicial killings were happened by RAB in Mohammadpur of capital Dhaka on 24th September night. After shooting three persons were seriously injured. They were identified as Shakil, Faruk & Rana. They were admitted to the Pangu (disabled) Hospital.

Previous report: ‘No right to life and human rights’! By Jahangir Alam Akash, In Bangladesh have no right to life. Actually in practice there are no human rights. Almost every day peoples has been killed in extra judicial killings by so-called elite force Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) or by police.
There is a common consensus that very poor governance, corruption and nepotism have severely undermined the rule of law including safeguards in the constitution to protect fundamental rights. This type of killings is a criminal’s offence. But, the government hasn’t taken departmental and criminal action against those who perpetrate such killings in custody and outside.
Another citizen of Bangladesh was killed by government force. An accused extremist Rashedul Islam was killed in the name of so-called gun battle with the police early on 23rd September, 2009 in Kushtia. Rashed, is the son of late Rustam Ali of Mill Line Bhataparha of Kushtia Sadar. Source: Bdnews24.com
With this killed person stood of the killed lists are 44 in last 54 days from 1st August to 23rd September, 2009 in Bangladesh.

It is our great question that has in Bangladesh any rule of law, human rights, democracy and good governance? In Bangladesh have no right to life. Every day peoples has been killed in extra judicial killings by so-called elite force Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) or by police.
Previous report: ‘Killing by government: violation of constitution and UN universal declaration’.

http://www.humanrightstoday.info/?p=1123
http://www.humanrightstoday.info/?p=1165
We seem that, all the institutional system like judiciary, rule, law, regulations, and constitution, national assembly has been disabled. Not only that, the media role regarding so-called crossfire, gunfight or encounter is very bad. They only are publishing a normal report about the so-called shootout every day by the direction of RAB or police. Previous report: ‘If government wants to do continue extra judicial killings!’ http://www.humanrightstoday.info/?p=1126
But, they didn’t try to cover as an investigator or as a responsible media. Because we know very well that, media should always publish real figure facts for the peoples and its’ they’re professional duties. Every peoples have right to know. But, the media of Bangladesh didn’t show their actual duties about the murders of state.

Though, some human-rights organizations have long been asking the government to stop the killings terming them extra judicial. On the other hand, the High Court on 29th June, 2009 asked to the government to explain why killing without trial in extra judicial killings will not be declared illegal, and why departmental and criminal actions should not be taken against those who perpetrate such killings in custody and outside. After this ruling what happened,
we don’t know.
But, extra judicial killings are going on by violating the highest Court ruling. How it continuing? It’s very alarming for human rights, democracy as well as right to life. RAB was killed an alleged criminal Mohammad Ali, 25 at Mirpur outer Stadium on 18th September, 2009. Other unidentified one was killed in Chawgachha of Jessore by the police on same day. Mohammad Ali was killed at around 2:45am. Unidentified accused mugger was killed at Jessore-Chawgachha road at about 2:00am. Source: the daily Star, 19th September, 2009.
Government source told, 577 people were killed in extra judicial killings in 472 incidents until August 31, 2009 since the formation of the elite force RAB on March 26, 2004 in the regime of BNP-Jammat. With these killing, the total of such extra-judicial killings to 42 in over six weeks from August 1 to September 18 in 2009 with them 19 such killings in August and 23 were in last 18 days.
The government of Bangladesh has been violating the constitution and Universal Declaration of Human Rights day after day since 2004. With the direction of the article 35(5) of the constitution of Bangladesh and the article 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ‘No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment’.
And according to the article 3 of the constitution of Bangladesh ‘everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.’ But in practice in Bangladesh has no right to life and not executed the Universal Declaration of human rights and the Constitution of Bangladesh.

If Bangladesh wants to introduce own self as a civilized country to the world then must be follow strictly to the Universal Declaration of human rights and the Constitution of Bangladesh.
Bangladesh government has taken dualism regarding extra judicial killings. They say to the international community that in Bangladesh has no extra judicial killings. On the other side, every day in Bangladesh was happened extra judicial killings in the name of so-called crossfire, gunfight or encounter.
So we could say that the present government of Bangladesh is a liar. Because, before the last general election they told to the nation openly that, ‘if they would form power then they must stopped the extra judicial killings’. But, now it’s going on. We strongly condemned about the attitude of government regarding extra judicial killings.

If the government wants betterment of Bangladesh and if they believe rule of law, constitution and Universal Declaration of Human Rights then they could firstly established rule of law. We want to say to the government please stop the extra judicial killings and should immediately start to trial against the war criminals. We believe that otherwise wouldn’t stop the Islamic militancy. 20.9.2009
Link of the previous report about the human rights situation in Bangladesh: http://www.humanrightstoday.info/?p=1171
In conclusion we want to say that, the so-called crossfire, encounter or gunfight stories which made by RAB-police are totally false than reality. Terrorism never combat or control by state killings, we believe. Establish to rule of law is very emergency for control to terrorism.

With these at least 90 peoples were killed by the state forces RAB-police in the name of so-called crossfire or encounter or gunfight in the present Mohajote (grand alliance) government led by Bangladesh Awami League from January, 7 to September 25, 2009.

Two more accused criminals were killed in the name of encounter by RAB in Kushtia on 25th September, 2009. The killed are Aroz Ali, 36, and Edu Mondol, 40. Only in Kushtia at least 20 persons were killed in extra judicial killings by RAB and police in last one month.
On the other hand a C&F businessmen Abul Kalam Rana (40) was killed by RAB after brutally tortured in their custody in the same day in the capital of Dhaka.
Another attempted to the extra judicial killings were happened by RAB in Mohammadpur of capital Dhaka on 24th September night. After shooting three persons were seriously injured. They were identified as Shakil, Faruk & Rana. They were admitted to the Pangu (disabled) Hospital.

Previous report: ‘No right to life and human rights’! By Jahangir Alam Akash, In Bangladesh have no right to life. Actually in practice there are no human rights. Almost every day peoples has been killed in extra judicial killings by so-called elite force Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) or by police.
There is a common consensus that very poor governance, corruption and nepotism have severely undermined the rule of law including safeguards in the constitution to protect fundamental rights. This type of killings is a criminal’s offence. But, the government hasn’t taken departmental and criminal action against those who perpetrate such killings in custody and outside.
Another citizen of Bangladesh was killed by government force. An accused extremist Rashedul Islam was killed in the name of so-called gun battle with the police early on 23rd September, 2009 in Kushtia. Rashed, is the son of late Rustam Ali of Mill Line Bhataparha of Kushtia Sadar. Source: Bdnews24.com
With this killed person stood of the killed lists are 44 in last 54 days from 1st August to 23rd September, 2009 in Bangladesh.

Previous report: http://www.humanrightstoday.info/?p=1168
At least 43 peoples were killed in last 50 days from 1st August to 19th September, 2009 in Bangladesh. Last killing was happened in Pabna on 19th September, 2009.
An accused regional leader of outlawed Janajuddho was killed by police in the name of ‘crossfire’ at Nandanpur under Pabna Sadar Upazila. The dead, Sukkur Ali alias Boma Sukkur, 30, was son of Abdul Hakim Pramanik of Nandanpur village. Source: the daily Star, 20.9.2009
It is our great question that has in Bangladesh any rule of law, human rights, democracy and good governance? In Bangladesh have no right to life. Every day peoples has been killed in extra judicial killings by so-called elite force Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) or by police.
Previous report: ‘Killing by government: violation of constitution and UN universal declaration’.

http://www.humanrightstoday.info/?p=1165
We seem that, all the institutional system like judiciary, rule, law, regulations, and constitution, national assembly has been disabled. Not only that, the media role regarding so-called crossfire, gunfight or encounter is very bad. They only are publishing a normal report about the so-called shootout every day by the direction of RAB or police. Previous report: ‘If government wants to do continue extra judicial killings!’ http://www.humanrightstoday.info/?p=1126
But, they didn’t try to cover as an investigator or as a responsible media. Because we know very well that, media should always publish real figure facts for the peoples and its’ they’re professional duties. Every peoples have right to know. But, the media of Bangladesh didn’t show their actual duties about the murders of state.

Though, some human-rights organizations have long been asking the government to stop the killings terming them extra judicial. On the other hand, the High Court on 29th June, 2009 asked to the government to explain why killing without trial in extra judicial killings will not be declared illegal, and why departmental and criminal actions should not be taken against those who perpetrate such killings in custody and outside. After this ruling what happened,
we don’t know.
But, extra judicial killings are going on by violating the highest Court ruling. How it continuing? It’s very alarming for human rights, democracy as well as right to life. RAB was killed an alleged criminal Mohammad Ali, 25 at Mirpur outer Stadium on 18th September, 2009. Other unidentified one was killed in Chawgachha of Jessore by the police on same day. Mohammad Ali was killed at around 2:45am. Unidentified accused mugger was killed at Jessore-Chawgachha road at about 2:00am. Source: the daily Star, 19th September, 2009.
Government source told, 577 people were killed in extra judicial killings in 472 incidents until August 31, 2009 since the formation of the elite force RAB on March 26, 2004 in the regime of BNP-Jammat. With these killing, the total of such extra-judicial killings to 42 in over six weeks from August 1 to September 18 in 2009 with them 19 such killings in August and 23 were in last 18 days.
The government of Bangladesh has been violating the constitution and Universal Declaration of Human Rights day after day since 2004. With the direction of the article 35(5) of the constitution of Bangladesh and the article 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ‘No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment’.
And according to the article 3 of the constitution of Bangladesh ‘everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.’ But in practice in Bangladesh has no right to life and not executed the Universal Declaration of human rights and the Constitution of Bangladesh.

If Bangladesh wants to introduce own self as a civilized country to the world then must be follow strictly to the Universal Declaration of human rights and the Constitution of Bangladesh.
Bangladesh government has taken dualism regarding extra judicial killings. They say to the international community that in Bangladesh has no extra judicial killings. On the other side, every day in Bangladesh was happened extra judicial killings in the name of so-called crossfire, gunfight or encounter.
So we could say that the present government of Bangladesh is a liar. Because, before the last general election they told to the nation openly that, ‘if they would form power then they must stopped the extra judicial killings’. But, now it’s going on. We strongly condemned about the attitude of government regarding extra judicial killings.

If the government wants betterment of Bangladesh and if they believe rule of law, constitution and Universal Declaration of Human Rights then they could firstly established rule of law. We want to say to the government please stop the extra judicial killings and should immediately start to trial against the war criminals. We believe that otherwise wouldn’t stop the Islamic militancy. 20.9.2009
Link of the previous report about the human rights situation in Bangladesh: http://www.humanrightstoday.info/?p=1171
In conclusion we want to say that, the so-called crossfire, encounter or gunfight stories which made by RAB-police are totally false than reality. Terrorism never combat or control by state killings, we believe. Establish to rule of law is very emergency for control to terrorism.

Islamic militancy are very strong!



By Jahangir Alam Akash, In Bangladesh, most of the political party are using religious in politics. Almost whole system turned to the criminalization, Islamalization, corruption, no accountability, no responsibility, disabled democracy in Bangladesh are burning problems. And gross poverty, natural disaster, climate change, education system, no good plan, no rule of law are the main problem of Bangladesh. War criminals, Jammat and militant are similar. These three components are very danger for secularism. But they are still active in Bangladesh. Dishonesty, immorality, irregularities, irresponsibility, corruption, you can find every where in Bangladesh.
Islamic militant group still are very organized. They have been running arms and explosives training camp. Another terrorists group members are killings in the name of crossfire, encounter or gunfight by the state forces. But, administration hasn’t taking with extra judicial killings to the militants. Yet, hadn’t taken in front of trial to the shelter men (those who were patron to the militants) of militants. Money sources of militants are still hide.
On 25th September, 2009 a militant training centre was captured by the law enforcers from Khagrachhari. (Source: the daily Star, 28th September, 2009). Law enforcers arrested Abdur Rahim alias Saifullah, second-in-command of Chittagong division JMB, and seized powdered explosives, 14 grenade casings, 20 detonators, 49 books on jihad, 27 batteries and around 1 kg barbed wire. Later on 27th September, 2009 they (law enforcers) were arrested four JMB cadres--Delwar Hossain alias Sajib, 32, and Yunus Ali alias Yunus, 20, at Shantipur of Matiranga, Delwar Hossain Dulal, 23, in Gazipur and Monir alias Ripon, 25, in Comilla.
Government source told, Moulana Saidur Rahman's son Bashar plays a key role in running the organisation. Seven members of Shura, highest policymaking body, are Shiblu alias Shishir, Sohel Mahfuz of Kushtia, Mehedi alias Abir of Barguna, Nazmul alias Bhagne Shahid of Natore, Osman alias Shahid of Comilla, Sayeem of Dhaka and Mahmud alias Asad of Panchagarh. Of them, Shishir is in charge of the military wing, Sohel Mahfuz dawat (invitation) department, Mehedi southern districts, Nazmul northern region, Osman Chittagong division and Sayeem takes care of the IT wing. The duties assigned to Mahmud could not yet be known. Mostafiz alias Siddique of Gazipur works as an adviser to the banned outfit.
A government source said, still Islamic militancy network and their organisational activity are very strong in Bangladesh.

Previous report: ‘Waiting for peace and justice!’ Around 125 Islamic militant organizations are active in Bangladesh. But the government has declared banned only for four militant organizations, till to date. The life of present highly popular Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is under threat by the militant. She is the main target of Islamic militant.

The people are well known, BNP-Jammat alliance government was patronized to the Islamic militant. Democracy, militancy and islamizations are now similar in Bangladesh. In top of the state were put Islam as a state religious. Although the peoples of Bangladesh were gave gross sacrifice for a secular democratic and peaceful country. But, in practice the peoples haven’t yet get a good democracy, rule of law, good governance and a secular society. At about 90 percent peoples are Muslim in Bangladesh. Other 10 percents are belonging in Hindu, Christian and Buddhist.
On the other hand, main two political parties of Bangladesh Awami League and BNP have no democracy in practically. In last general election which was hold on 29th December, 2008 in Bangladesh. In that election, peoples were gave absolute majority to Bangladesh Awami League (BAL) led grand alliance called Mohajote. Actually, which was not won of BAL. It’s a real and experienced result or decisions which were taken by the peoples after seven years regime both BNP-Jamat and Dr. Fakruddin-Moyeen government.

Peoples of Bangladesh have had great hope for their demand/want to the present government for trial of war criminals, Bangabondhu murderers and re-established to the constitution of 1972. But, the government couldn’t show any activity regarding these issues from last eight months that’s for peoples are get hope or faith. Now a days in Bangladesh Islamic militant are grown up, law and order situation are fallen every day and the conspiracy are grosses day by day against the daughter of Bangabondhu and present Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The influential English national daily Star recently wrote that, ‘no effective measure was taken by any government to punish the patrons of the outlawed Islamist outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) that launched an unprecedented countrywide bomb attack on August 17, 2005.
The law-enforcement agencies during their drives against militancy have so far arrested over 550 JMB militants including many of their top tier leaders. However, no initiative by the law enforcers was ever seen to bring the patrons of these militants to book. A number of victims in northern Rajshahi region individually filed cases against some alleged patrons of JMB. But no comprehensive effort has been seen from the government to take steps against these alleged patrons. Former BNP minister Aminul Haque has been convicted by a court for patronizing JMB and some other BNP leaders have been accused in cases filed by victims in Rajshahi region.

Following the March 2007 execution of JMB kingpins Abdur Rahman, Siddiqul Islam alias Bangla Bhai and four others, the government showed its firm stance to detect the outfit’s political patrons and take stern action against them. The patrons of JMB would face the same punishment [execution] if they are found guilty, announced the then law adviser of the caretaker government.
“The law enforcers are looking for the godfathers. If they are netted and we learn about their roles, they will face the same punishment,” he said in March 2007. It has already been over two years when present Inspector General of Police (IGP) Nur Mohammad said: “We have already tentatively identified the patrons of the organization [JMB].”

The ruling Awami League government also announced to take actions against the militant patrons. Mysteriously enough, no action has been taken against anyone although names of some former BNP-Jamaat-led ruling alliance’s political leaders, lawmakers and ministers surfaced as patrons of JMB in the northern districts including Rajshahi. The investigators working at the diktat of the then government high-ups also did not take any move to detect and expose them.
Here mentioned that, at least 176 peoples were killed including journalist, lawyer, justice and political leader from since 1999 by the Islamic militant attacked in Bangladesh. As citizens we think that, it would not be possible to uproot militancy soon until taking measures against their patrons or guardians as well as should stop their economic shelters. As well as should practice real democracy and for the interest of the nation should be united all political parties except Jammat. We more think that, immediately should ban the politics those who are working in the field of politics in the name of religious, like Jammat.

The investigators working at the diktat of the then government high-ups also did not take any move to detect and expose them.

The JMB has meanwhile been trying to regroup to regain its strength. Moreover, the outfit is being united with another banned Islamist outfit Harkat-ul-Jihad-al Islami’s (Huji) Bangladesh chapter despite having some differences of opinion. Sources say under the initiative of present JMB chief Moulana Saidur Rahman and Huji leader Omar the two outfits have recently held several meetings to discuss their unity move. Sources inside RAB, which is leading the anti-militant drive for last few years, say they did not yet infiltrate into the militant organizations. “If we could plant our sources in the militant outfits, we could have learned their every update soon after the development. And as we couldn’t do it yet, we now operate drives based mainly on the information we obtain from the arrested militants,” says a government officials.

The sources say both JMB and Huji are divided into various groups due to internal feuds. But yet they have initiated the unity move to take revenge on the government for the execution of six JMB leaders and also the arrest of the leaders and activists of both the organizations. The sources add the JMB and Huji leaders have past relations as executed JMB chief Abdur Rahman formed his outfit in 1998 after defecting from Huji.

Former adviser to the caretaker government and former IGP SM Shajahan said, “We have significant achievement in anti-militant drive, but militancy is not a small problem. It should not be considered that militancy has been solved after arresting and executing some of their leaders and members.” He said before the blasts on August 17, 2005 the country had witnessed some other major blasts. “But we saw blame games in the political arena and misleading investigation to divert our eyes from the real focus, which inspired the real culprits. ”It was unexpected and no politics should be on the issue as we need united efforts involving people to solve this serious problem,” he continued. “The total picture of the country’s militancy problem is not clear yet as we don’t know their many things including sources of money, arms, explosives and training. We think executed Abdur Rahman and Bangla Bhai are top most leaders of JMB, but I think they can have their patrons.”

Government sources told, some law enforcers involved with the anti-militant drives believe the “Anti-Terrorism Law”, which has already been passed would help take legal steps against the masterminds and patrons. They think earlier there was no adequate law to bring the patrons or masterminds to book. Sources say the law-enforcement and intelligence personnel arrested 555 JMB leaders since the August 17 blasts. Of them, 80 were arrested this year. Among the arrested JMB men, 46 are policymakers, 103 ehsar [full-time] members, 10 gaiyeri ehsar members, 17 suicide squad members and 379 are lower level leaders and activists. The sources say government law enforcer’s agencies detained around 1,500 people suspecting them as JMB men. But after verification, only 555 of them were learned to have had links with JMB. Among the arrestees, six top brass leaders — Abdur Rahman, Bangla Bhai, Abdul Auwal, Ataur Rahman Sunny, Khalid Saifullah and Iftekhar Hussain Al Mamun were executed.

Two major political parties–Awami League (AL) and BNP — are not fostering intra-party democracy, which is an imperative to strengthen country’s democracy, speakers at a round-table in the capital said on 16 August, 2009.
They accused ruling AL-led government of turning the Election Commission (EC) into a ‘paper tiger’. Sushasoner Jonno Nagorik (Sujan) organised the event titled “Reforms in the political party: Where we are” at the National Press Club. On the much-talked-about political reforms, speakers said the issue drew huge public response during the tenure of the last caretaker government but they lost interest as soon as the then government adopted the ‘minus two formula’.
They also apprehend that militancy will rise in the country if democracy does not prevail. Sujan Secretary placed the concept paper at the discussion. Speakers told, We don’t see any reflection of intra-party democracy in the political parties; we won’t be able to establish a digital Bangladesh unless we ensure a democratic environment, speakers appreciated ‘aggressive activities’ of the parliamentary standing committees saying that it would help ensure accountability and transparency of the respective ministries. The speakers also raised a question about why BNP failed to hold its council within the EC’s timeframe. They should honour what they promised to the EC. Income and expense of AL should have been discussed at their recently held council. But we don’t know whether it was discussed in the council or not. We don’t see financial accountability established in the political parties. Militancy will rise in the country in the absence of democracy in the country. The meeting said, the ninth parliament had deleted and relaxed many provisions from the Representation of the People Order, which could have ensured intra-party democracy. Thus an elected government turned the EC into a ‘paper tiger’, he said.
Speakers also said the just-concluded council of AL and Jatiya Party were nothing but some formalities, which failed to uphold the spirit of the Representation of the People Order. They have completely failed to come out of the previous political culture,” he commented. We utter so many good words while in opposition but forget those once we are in power. (Source: the daily Star).
Here mentioned that, at least 176 peoples were killed including journalist, lawyer, justice and political leader from since 1999 by the Islamic militant attacked in Bangladesh.

As citizens we think that, it would not be possible to uproot militancy soon until taking measures against their patrons or guardians. As well as should practice real democracy and for the interest of the nation should be united whole political party. We more think that, immediately should ban the politics those who are working in the field of politics in the name of religious. 17-08-2009
Finally, We want war criminals free, Jammat-shibir free, corruption free, torture free secular Bangladesh, where live all religious believer with peace, happiness and with actual democracy. www.humanrightstoday.info

Mass arrest police torture and Sheikh Hasina

 Congratulations to Sheikh Hasina, but…!


Human Rights Today report: We feel very happy and proud. Because our Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was deliberated her speech in Bengali in the General Assembly of United Nations in New York in USA. We want to say congratulations and giving thanks Sheikh Hasina for her speech in UN meeting with Bengali language.
World knows that, Father of the Nation Bangabondhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman did the same 35 years back in UN General Assembly. We strongly want and our demand and hope that, UN should immediately declare that Bengali would be an another official language. Because Bangalee nation was did great sacrifice for their mother language Bengali.
But, our question about human rights, rule of law and democracy. Actually in Bangladesh human rights situation is not good now. Every day citizens are killings by the state in the name of crossfire, encounter or gunfight. Already 93 peoples were killed extra judicially in her government time from 7th January to 26th September, 2009. Many BDR members were died by torture in the custody. Journalists repression also common matter. Minority torture hasn’t stop yet.
In the name of democracy have in Bangladesh. But actually in practice democracy has not visible here. Almost all the institutions are disabled. If government does obey to the constitution, rule of law, Universal Declaration of human rights then they couldn’t continuing to extra judicial killings. 27.9.2009

Farmer killed by police torture

A farmer named Obaidullah was killed in Rajshahi by the police torture in the police custody on 25th September, 2009.

Mass arrest

Again mass arrest starting in Bangladesh. More than 400 peoples including women were arrested by law enforcers in a night on 25th September, 2009. Source: ATN Bangla
RAB and police running a for control the deteriorating law and order situation of the country. Home Minister Advocate Sahara Khatun said, government wants to control law and order situation. Sources said, after taking a decision by the government RAB-police has started comb operation against terrorism for control the law and order situation.
But, the local human rights activists says, mass arrest is a gross human rights violation. When the Prime Minister Sheikh giving her speech in UN general assembly about uphold the human rights and rule of law then in Bangladesh is going on mass arrest. Really government maybe taken dual role. One for Bangladesh and another for international community.
Many arrest people are very innocent, says the members of some victims family. They said, no case against them.
We want to say to government, please stop mass arrest and protect human rights, rule of law and should immediately start trial against war criminals. 26.9.2009.

Previous report: ‘Extra judicial killings and Awami League government’
By Jahangir Alam Akash, In Bangladesh going on gross human rights violation by the extra judicial killings. We seems government don’t want to obey the rule of law, constitution, Universal Declaration of human rights. Otherwise they would try to stop state killings in the name of so-called gunfight, encounter or crossfire.

If Bangladesh wants to introduce own self as a civilized country to the world then must be follow strictly to the Universal Declaration of human rights and the Constitution of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh government has taken dualism regarding extra judicial killings. They say to the international community that in Bangladesh has no extra judicial killings. On the other side, every day in Bangladesh was happened extra judicial killings in the name of so-called crossfire, gunfight or encounter.
So we could say that the present government of Bangladesh is a liar. Because, before the last general election they told to the nation openly that, ‘if they would form power then they must stopped the extra judicial killings’. But, now it’s going on. We strongly condemned about the attitude of government regarding extra judicial killings.
If the government wants betterment of Bangladesh and if they believe rule of law, constitution and Universal Declaration of Human Rights then they could firstly established rule of law. We want to say to the government please stop the extra judicial killings and should immediately start to trial against the war criminals. We believe that otherwise wouldn’t stop the Islamic militancy. 20.9.2009
