Bangladesh: Trial by Politics - The SeriesSalem-News.com
A report into the alleged war crimes trials in Bangladesh.
(DHAKA, Bangladesh) - Islam Channel TV has produced a revealing series on the problems in Bangladesh that have left more than 150 dead, and a nation on a new page, where established Muslim political leaders are being tried for war crimes from more than 40 years ago, during the revolution and war against Pakistan.
Specifically, they are charged with cooperating with the Pakistani army during the war. It is reported that all of the major parties have suspected war criminals, but only select Muslim groups like Jamaat-e-Islam are being targeted.
While many say the politicians are guilty, there seems to be little chance of ever finding out, as the trials are charged with being rigged and those pushing for the trials are calling for the death penalty, which goes against the religious grain of much of the Bangladeshi population.
These programs examine the story from a different perspective than the one presented to western viewers through western mainstream news channels.
