    Jamaat terrorises Bangladesh Hindus, rioters burn 6 temples

    Activists of Bangladesh’s largest Islamic party the Jamaat-e-Islami and its student wing, the Islami Chhatra Shibir have unleashed a streak of terror since Thursday, targeting the Hindu community in the country.

    Reviving the nightmare of 1971 for minority Hindu community, Jamaat-Shibir men vandalised six temples and set fire to several Hindu houses and business in Noakhali, Gaibandha, Chittagong, Rangpur, Sylhet, Chapainawabganj and Rajganj, a Daily Star report said.

    Two people were killed in the ensuing clashes between Jamaat-Shibir and the police in Datterhat and Rajganj, on Friday.

    Hours after top Jamaat leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee was sentenced to death on Thursday, Jamaat activists set fire to Harishiva temple in Rajganj.

    “They returned an hour later. This time we were left with no choice but to flee the area, as they started torching our houses with kerosene,” schoolteacher Shankar Chandra, who lost his house in the attack, told The Daily Star over the phone.

    Some 50 Hindu people used to live in the houses burnt down, he said, adding that all but a few people had managed to escape to safety. Those left behind had been beaten up and kicked out of their houses by the Jamaat-Shibir attackers, the report said.

    “We ran for our lives leaving everything behind. I was only seven during the Liberation War in 1971, but it didn’t feel this insecure even then,” said Shankar Chandra.

    Jamaat-Shibir men outnumbered policemen in Rajganj as tensions continued to escalate. Just as soon as the police tried to scale down the violence, Jamaatis initiated an exchange of gunshots with the law enforcers, in which one person was killed.

    They also threatened the local media from covering the event and seized cameras of photojournalists, according to the report.

    In Chittagong, Jamaat activists attacked two Hindu-majority localities in Banshkhali upazila and set fire to a Buddhist temple at Satkania upazila. They also set fire to three shops belonging to Hindus at Satkania upazila and attacked people with sticks, iron rods and sharp weapons, critically injuring two, the police said.

    In Gaibandha, Jamaat-Shibir men attacked a temple and business establishments belonging to Hindus on Friday. Later in the day, they vandalised houses in Shovaganj union.

    Hindus also claimed that Jamaatis had vandalised, set fire to, and looted temples, houses and business establishments of the community in Sylhet, Rangpur, Thakurgaon, Laxmipur and Chapainawabganj. They also said that the Islamists had vandalised the central Kali temple in Rangpur and another in Chapainawabganj.

    • Rakladas Banerji Says:

      It is really sickening to note, by holding Quran in his hands, can he be a human being.

      If that is so, how he could have committed such heinous crimes on the humanity?

      How the Quran or his god allow him to do so?

      How then his fanatic followers blindly continue to commit such crimes again and again.

      There is totally wrong with the Muuslims and Quran too, as they are inspired by it to commit such anti-human crimes.

      If such scriptures teach, promote and encourage fanatics to kill, bomb, butcher……………………and so on, then, what sort of scripture it is?

      The Muslims themselves assess, reassess and find out the root cause of such monsterity.

    Bangladesh Islamist’s Death Sentence Sparks Deadly Riots
    By ANIS AHMED / REUTERS WRITER| March 1, 2013 |
    http://www.irrawaddy.org/archives/28091

    DHAKA — A Bangladeshi Islamist party leader was sentenced to death on Thursday over abuses carried out during the country’s independence war, triggering riots that killed at least 30 people.

    Delwar Hossain Sayedee, 73, vice-president of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, was found guilty by Bangladesh’s war crimes tribunal of mass killing, rape, arson, looting and forcing minority Hindus to convert to Islam during the 1971 war of separation from Pakistan, lawyers and tribunal officials said.

    After he was convicted and sentenced, police clashed with activists from Sayedee’s party and violence raged in more than a dozen areas around the country, police, witnesses and media reports said.

    At least three policemen were among the dead and around 300 were wounded, they added.

    Protesters, who said the verdict was politically motivated, set fire to a Hindu temple and several houses in southern Noakhali region, reporters said. In the southeastern region of Cox’s Bazar, they attacked a police camp, killing one.

    Two policemen were killed when Islamists stormed a police station at Sundarganj in northern Gaibandha district, police said. “We have been virtually besieged. It’s a horrible situation,” station officer Manzur Rahman told Reuters.

    Members of the religious party—known simply as Jamaat—called for a national strike on Sunday and Monday, raising fears of more violence. Sayedee was the third senior party member convicted by the tribunal.

    In the capital, authorities deployed extra police and paramilitary soldiers, a Home Ministry official told reporters.

    Thousands of people in the capital’s Shahbag square, who support the tribunal and have been protesting for weeks to demand the highest penalty for war criminals, burst into cheers as the sentence was announced.

    Sayedee looked defiant but remained calm in the dock as judges read out the verdict, witnesses said.

    “I didn’t commit any crime and the judges are not giving the verdict from the core of their heart,” Sayedee told the tribunal, said reporters at the hearing.

    State prosecutor Haider Ali told reporters he was happy with the verdict which he said “appropriately demonstrated justice.”

    Defense attorney Abdur Razzak said the sentence was politically motivated. “He is a victim of sheer injustice. We will appeal,” he said.

    Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina set up the tribunal in 2010 to investigate abuses during the war that claimed about 3 million lives. Thousands of women were raped during the conflict.

    The tribunal has been criticised by rights groups for failing to adhere to international standards. Human Rights Watch said lawyers, witnesses and investigators reported they had been threatened.

    Critics say the tribunal is being used by the prime minister as an instrument against her opponents in the two biggest opposition parties, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and the Jamaat-e-Islami. Begum Khaleda Zia, Hasina’s arch rival and leader of the BNP, has called the tribunal a farce.

    Hasina’s party has denied allegations of bias.

    On Jan. 21, the tribunal sentenced Abul Kalam Azad, a former Jamaat member, to death in absentia after he was found guilty of torture, rape and genocide during the independence war.

    In its second verdict, on Feb. 5, the tribunal sentenced another senior Jamaat member, Abdul Quader Mollah, 64, to life in prison after he was found guilty of murder, rape, torture and arson.

    Both verdicts triggered protests by Jamaat supporters, in which at least 15 people were killed.

    Nine more people, mostly Jamaat members, are facing trial for war crimes, tribunal officials said.

    The overwhelmingly Muslim south Asian country of 160 million people would likely see more violence in the run-up to parliamentary elections in January, in which both Hasina and Khaleda will run for power, analysts said.

    Bangladesh became part of Pakistan at the end of British colonial rule in 1947. But the country, then known as East Pakistan, won independence with India’s help in December 1971 following a nine-month war against the then West Pakistan.

    Some factions in Bangladesh opposed the break with Pakistan, including the Jamaat. Jamaat leaders have denied involvement in abuses.

    Exodus to India as Bangladesh burns
    BySubhro Maitra, TNN | Mar 2, 2013, 06.01 AM IST
    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/south-asia/Exodus-to-India-as-Bangladesh-burns/articleshow/18759460.cms

    MAHADIPUR (Bangladesh border): Hundreds of Bangladeshis have poured into the border district of Malda, fleeing the violence that has broken out after Jamaat-e-Islami vice-president Delwar Hossain Sayedee was sentenced to death on Thursday for his role in the ’71 atrocities.

    BSF officials at the Mahadipur checkpost say they have never seen such an exodus in years. Even Awami League members are among those seeking refuge in India, say sources.

    Hundreds of loaded trucks are stranded on this side of the border as export has come to a complete stop. Some 300 drivers and helpers returned on Friday, leaving their trucks behind in Bangladeshi ports. Hundreds more from Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Punjab are stranded there. “We are more concerned for their safety now than our losses,” said exporter Samir Ghosh.

    Awami League leader Md Alauddin, a member of the Natore municipality board, and his wife were seen walking through Mahadipur border checkpost on Friday. “The entire nation is in flames. Roads have been cut at many places, and houses torched. Awami supporters are under attack,” he said.

    Risha, a second-year BBA student, followed Alauddin a while later, on her way to a relative’s house in Murshidabad . “The library at Shibgunj in Nawabgunj district was set on fire on Thursday. The flames were yet to die down when I left. We are very scared,” she said. Like Risha, many begin by claiming that they have crossed over for medical treatment.

    “I don’t know when I shall be able to return home,” said the student.

    Sixty-year-old Abdus Salam of Chapai Nawabgunj admits he is terrified. “An undeclared strike is on. Jamat has called an official strike on Sunday and Monday. We fear more violence,” he said, as Bajlur Haque and wife Latika Akhtar added. The couple has fled from Bagha in Rajsahi . “We had to sneak through fields and forests as the roads have been cut at many places. Houses and cars are being set on fire,” said Bajlur.

    Although Bangladeshis do come in through Mahadipur , the number has suddenly doubled, say BSF officlas. Infiltration also has shot up. On Wednesday night, 29 infiltrators – including children and women – were intercepted at the Hili border.

    Death Toll From Bangladesh Unrest Reaches 44

    DHAKA, Bangladesh — The death toll from violent clashes between protesters and security forces in Bangladesh reached at least 44 on Friday, one day after a special war crimes tribunal handed down a death sentence to an Islamic leader for crimes against humanity committed 42 years ago, during the country’s 1971 war of independence from Pakistan.

    Delawar Hossain Sayedee is facing a death sentence.
    The verdict against Islamic leader, Delawar Hossain Sayedee, a leader of Jamaat-e-Islami, an Islamist party, resonated across the country. It was celebrated by the hundreds of thousands of young protesters who have taken to the streets in recent weeks to condemn Jamaat and demand justice in the war crimes cases against other party leaders, insisting that those who were convicted be hanged.

    “This verdict is a victory for the people,” declared Imran H. Sarkar, a blogger and an organizer of the protests, during a rally on Thursday afternoon.

    But followers of Jamaat reacted with fury, saying the case brought against Mr. Sayedee and others was politically motivated and tainted by judicial irregularities. The police and witnesses said that of the 44 people killed in the unrest, six were policemen.

    Jamaat leaders had called a nationwide strike on Thursday to protest the verdict, and by afternoon bloodshed had erupted across the country, as party workers fought with the police in the streets.

    The protests for and against Jamaat have convulsed Bangladeshi politics, demonstrating that the country has still not healed from the bloody 1971 conflict, in which an estimated three million people were killed and thousands of women were raped. Before the war, Bangladesh was East Pakistan, separated from the rest of that country by a wide expanse of India. The war pitted Bangladeshi separatists against Pakistani soldiers and local collaborators, who were known then as the Razakar Bahini.

    “As judges of this tribunal, we firmly hold and believe in the doctrine that ‘justice in the future cannot be achieved unless injustice of the past is addressed,’ ” Justice A. T. M. Fazle Kabir commented in a written summary of the judgment.

    The war crimes tribunal has convicted three Jamaat leaders in connection with the war, and other cases are under way, including some against defendants not affiliated with the party.

    Mr. Sayedee, 73, is a well-known religious speaker with a bright red beard who became a member of the Bangladeshi Parliament after the war. Prosecutors accused him of involvement in looting and burning villages, raping women and forcing members of religious minorities to convert to Islam during the war.

    His defense lawyer, Abdur Razzaq, scoffed at the court’s verdict and accused the authorities of deliberately prejudicing the trial and preventing an important witness from testifying.

    “This is unfortunate, and this is unexpected,” Mr. Razzaq said of the verdict and sentence in a telephone interview. “This is a perverse judgment. It is inconceivable that a court of law awarded him a conviction. This prosecution was for a political purpose.”

    Jamaat leaders and other opposition politicians have said for months that the government was manipulating the war crimes process to go after political rivals, accusations that the authorities deny. The proceedings have already created dissent and some international criticism. The chief presiding judge resigned after reports, based on hacked Skype conversations, that the judge had improper contacts with a legal expert linked to prosecutors and the government.

    But to many Bangladeshis, the real injustice has been that war criminals have remained free for decades. On Feb. 5, the tribunal convicted another Jamaat leader, Abdul Quader Mollah, and sentenced him to life in prison. Furious that the tribunal had not sentenced Mr. Mollah to death, protesters gathered in growing numbers, surpassing 200,000 on some days.

    The protests have become known as the Shahbagh movement, named for a large intersection in central Dhaka where the main demonstrations have taken place. Many political analysts say the Shahbagh protests are the most significant spontaneous political movement in Bangladesh in decades. Though the movement may be suffused with idealism and proud nationalism, it also bears a hard edge, with demands for the execution of convicted war criminals.

    Sultana Kamal, a prominent human rights leader in Dhaka, said that she disagreed with the calls for the death penalty, but that they reflected the cynicism of Bangladeshis who have seen war criminals evade punishment for decades. Many people were infuriated when Mr. Mollah flashed a victory sign after receiving his life sentence.

    “We have a problem in accepting that they are demanding the death penalty,” Ms. Kamal said in a telephone interview. “But we understand that it was from a nervousness among the people here that unless they are given the highest penalty in the land, these people will come back out.”

    Julfikar Ali Manik reported from Dhaka, and Jim Yardley from New Delhi.

    Bangla riots over 1971 war trials
    – 6 die as Jamaat actvists clash with police

    Dhaka, Jan. 31 (PTI): Violence gripped Bangladesh today as hardline activists of the Jamaat-e-Islami clashed with police, leaving six people, including a constable, dead and several injured during a nationwide strike called to protest the 1971 Liberation War crimes’ trials.

    The strike was called by the Jamaat-e-Islami and backed by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) to stop the trial of their top leaders for the war crimes.

    Police said four people were killed in northwestern Bogra alone in clashes between pro-government and Jamaat activists. Riot police used rubber bullets and tear gas to quell the crowds in the town, seen as an Opposition stronghold.

    “The four died within hours in the afternoon… Jamaat activists are still fighting law enforcement agencies,” a senior Bogra police officer told PTI by phone. A local journalist said the dead were suspected to be Jamaat workers.

    Two of them died on the outskirts of the town as they exchanged fire with police and the elite Rapid Action Battalion (RAB).

    The Bogra deputy commissioner, Sarwar Hossain, said the paramilitary Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) was on stand-by as the “violence was still under way” despite the end of the strike hours.

    An autorickshaw driver died of his wounds after his vehicle was attacked by Jamaat activists for defying the strike call in southwestern Feni, the hometown of BNP chief Khaleda Zia.

    The sixth victim was a policeman who died early this morning in Jessore district. Police said he died of a heart attack during clashes.

    Witnesses said Jamaat activists fought with riot police in the Satmatha area of Bogra town, leaving over a dozen people injured at the fag end of the strike hours.

    The party had called a half-day strike in Dhaka and Chittagong and a day-long shutdown elsewhere to demand the release of their top leaders including party chief Matiur Rahman Nizami who is being tried for “crimes against humanity” during the 1971 Liberation War against Pakistan.

    A sin for ’em to live here?
    Hindus in Noakhali, Banskhali look for answer after attack by Jamaat

    Star Report
    The Hindu families having survived the onslaught from anti-liberation elements now wonder what protection they have in this country.

    As the religious minorities in some remote pockets of Chittagong and Noakhali try to come to terms with Thursday’s barbaric attacks on their homesteads and temples, there is no let-up in the assaults at other places including Barisal, Bagerhat and Gazipur.

    Bangladesh Hindu-Buddha-Christian Oikya Parishad has demanded the government act immediately to resist communal attacks, arrest the culprits, rehabilitate the victims and rebuild the temples.

    Moments after Jamaat leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee received death sentence for war crimes, his party, in some cases allegedly aided by BNP supporters, struck terror in the hearts of Hindus on Thursday.

    Visiting some neighbourhoods ravaged by Jamaat and its student wing Shibir, these correspondents encountered blank looks of the community members.

    Passing three days under the open sky, without sleep and proper food, the families in Rajganj under Begumganj upazila of Noakhali do not know what lies ahead.

    “It is our sin to live in this country being Hindu; it is our sin not to flee away,” Minoti Rani Das shouted. “We had a happy family. Now I have no shed, no food, no space to cook, no furniture. Now I have only some ashes.”

    This is not only Minoti’s story. Around seventy six families have been living under inhumane conditions since Thursday afternoon as the bigots ran riot after the pronouncement of Sayedee verdict.

    While millions of compatriots across the country were celebrating following the verdict, some families were losing everything in the village.

    Almost all the victims and some other villagers alleged that Jamaat-Shibir-BNP men were directly involved in the attacks.

    At least 40 houses, six temples and several dozen shops were burnt and vandalised; valuables and furniture were looted. Police came at least one and half hours latter when it was all over.

    While launching attacks, around 250 to 300 rioters were saying Sayedee was sentenced to death because of the deposition of Hindu witnesses, locals said. The number of attackers varied from spot to spot.

    “Sayedee got death sentence because of you. You cannot stay in this country,” Bablu Bhuiyan, whose two houses were damaged, quoted one attacker as saying.

    Gathered since around 10:00am, the fanatics were chanting slogans including Sayedee saheber kicchu hole, jolbe agun ghore ghore (fire will be set to each and every house, if something happens to Sayedee). Many were wearing masks.

    Abdul Hashem, a tea-stall owner of Rajganj Bazaar, said almost all the attackers were young and he could identify at least three persons actively involved with Jamaat. Two of them run a pharmacy and a grocery at the bazaar.

    Many Hindu families took shelter in nearby houses of Muslims during the attacks, said Benu Ranjan Chowdhury, whose house was burnt.

    Some victims alleged that Harunur Rashid, chairman of Rajganj union parishad and general secretary of local BNP unit, played a murky role.

    “Had the chairman taken immediate steps, the mayhem wouldn’t have occurred in such massive scale,” said Bimol Kanti Acharjee.

    However, Rashid refuted the allegations, saying, “The attack was launched by some outsiders and street urchins.”

    Mohammad Alauddin, acting ameer of Noakhali district Jamaat, said, “The fans of Sayedee might have resorted to violence. Besides, a feud over land could have triggered the incidents. I’ve heard there was rivalry among some families.”

    He denied Jamaat’s complicity.

    Mahbubur Rashid, Noakhali superintendent of police, said, “It is clear to us that the anti-liberation force launched the attack. Maximum punishment for perpetrators will be ensured.”

    Like Rajganj, Chittagong’s Banshkhali also bears marks of vandalism and arson led by Jamaat and Shibir on Thursday.

    The attackers hacked to death 60-year-old Dayal Hari, said locals.

    Dayal had come to see his daughter at her in-law’s. As the armed bigots started the rampage, he hid at the latrine.

    But they broke the door, dragged him out and hacked him. The man somehow escaped and jumped in the adjacent pond but the attackers caught him and hacked him again.

    Dayal was rushed to Chittagong Medical College Hospital where physicians declared him dead.

    Sunil, another Banshkhali resident, said some one thousand attackers stormed the houses. They carried machete, sticks and other sharp weapons and used gunpowder to burn eight houses.

    At least 70 people are now homeless.

    Nipu Sheel did not understand why her house and cowshed were burnt to ashes on Thursday.

    “They beat us and set our houses ablaze,” she said. ”We didn’t understand what’s was wrong. They looted our belongings. The cattle were burnt to death. We were lucky enough to have our kids saved.”

    Rani Dash is one of many injured in the assaults; she suffered right arm fractures.

    Sheikh Fakhruddin Chowdhury, mayor of Banshkhali Municipality, local BNP-Jamaat leaders instigated the mayhem.
