The historical Shahbag movement in Bangladesh seems to have gained a momentum that alarms the biggest anti-liberation force in Bangladeshi politics -- Jamaat-e-Islami. The outcome we have seen in the murder of the 'controversial for preaching against religion or religious blindness' (depending on who's looking at it) blogger Thaba Baba aka Rajib Haider.

In the 1971 genocide in Bangladesh, more than 3 million civilians were killed by Pakistani army and soldiers. A meticulously planned intellectual extermination was carried out where physicians, engineers, professors, bankers, movie directors, writers, journalists were targeted and killed. In addition approximately 500,000 women and girls were systematically raped with many of whom later killed.

I did not know Rajib, I was not even familiar with his writings. So far as I know, in his lifetime, Rajib was not a well known or a popular blogger. But after his death, a frenzy had been created around him. I don’t know what was the motif behind targeting him. There were bloggers who are much more popular than him who could have been targeted. Rather Rajib was targeted. An advance news on Rajib’s death was there in the Sonar Bangla blog. What’s the reason behind that?

Main Article by Tanveer: একাত্তরে জামায়াতে ইসলামীর ভূমিকা ও আন্তর্জাতিক অপরাধ ট্রাইবুনালে এর উপস্থাপন

Dreadful crimes were perpetrated during the 9-month liberation war in 1971, which resulted in the birth of independent Bangladesh. Since March 1971, the country had been engulfed by torture, rape, mass-killings and other acts against humanity, led by the Pakistan army. A group of local collaborators, mostly the members of the political party Jamaat-e-Islami, facilitated and also actively participated in these war crimes.

As some of you may be aware, a prominent blogger of Bangladesh was murdered today. Ahmed Rajib, 35 -- better known by his online identity Thaba Baba (the claw) – was found dead near his home in Dhaka's Pallabi suburb, with his head hacked apart with a machete.

[justify]What will happen if you speak out for democratic rights of the Nazis in any street in any country of Europe? Even the biggest evangelist of democracy will shove the flag of democracy right through your back. What if you go and complain to some human rights organization that the Nazi's are being deprived of human rights?


People’s Shahbag, not of Partisans

An expatriate colleague was enthusiastically asking about Shahbag movement at the lunch table today in Kathmandu. Apparently, the rest folks at the table queued their curiosity about the happenings in Bangladesh. It was of extreme surprise to the Nepalese folks to learn about the Projonmo Chattar and its genesis. And it's yet hard to believe to many of them that this movement is people lead.

This is our time to show that we fought for our country when she needed us.

I am a bit upset about the state of our fellow Bangladeshi’s patriotism following the event in Altab Ali Park in London to show support in favour or the trail of the war crime in Bangladesh. A very personal point of view.
