New Documentary: Bangladesh A Trial by PoliticsTim King Salem-News.com
Are the controversial war crime trials in Bangladesh fair or warranted?
(SACRAMENTO, CA) - Our human rights ambassador, William Nicholas Gomes, has been filing reports about the new political movement in Bangladesh that seeks to convict senior Muslim leaders for complicity in the 1971 Genocide and the country's resulting independence.
The truth, as the video below reveals, is that all of the major political parties in Bangladesh have members suspected of war crimes in their ranks, but only particular Muslim parties are being singled out, including the long standing and respect Jamaat-e-Islam party. None of the war crimes suspects from the parties friendly to the government are under suspicion or involved.
Calling for the death penalty and openly displaying the cartoon images of respected Muslim political leaders, with their heads in a noose, the #Shahbag: Social Revolution is comprised mostly of people who weren't born at the time of the 1970's war.
Is it a quest for justice, or a political maneuver that has already led to the deaths of at least 150 people? As Bangladesh is not involving outside nations in the so-called 'war crimes' trials, cries of rigged trials are abounding. One man even disclosed in court that he had been told that he had to testify and make false statements. The next day, he disappeared and has never been seen again.
This is the mark of the Shahbag activists for many. Lest we forget that Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasin scoffed at the idea of offering refuge to starving Rohingya Muslim families as they fled a Genocide on their own soil carried out against them by Rakhine Budhists. They begged for help and Bangladesh flatly rejected them. This is the same government carrying out that country's version of the Salem Witch Trials.
