BRITAIN’S LORD CARLILE VOICES DISAPPOINTMENT ON THE INJUSTICE OVER MIR QUASEM ALI

 


 

In a press statement published by the House of Lords yesterday, Lord Carlile of Berriew requested

“that the Government of Bangladesh issue a formal invitation to a delegation of lawyers from the House of Lords to the International Crimes Tribunal, Dhaka, following their oral assurance to do so.

Proceedings before the International Crimes Tribunal in Dhaka, Bangladesh, have preoccupied me for some time. As a result of my interest, on 10 September 2012, I was invited to meet Shafique Ahmed, Minister of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs. During the meeting, I asked him whether I could take a group of senior lawyers of all parties from the House of Lords to visit the Tribunal and to have open access to everyone concerned, including the defendants in their place of incarceration. The Minister agreed to this in principle and was very clear about his agreement, albeit orally.

On 9 October 2012, members of the House of Lords voiced my concerns in relation to the proceedings at the Tribunal as part of a larger debate on the human rights situation in Bangladesh. Lord Avebury, Baroness Uddin and Baroness Brinton all expressed their support for urgent assessment of the standards of the Tribunal, highlighting in turn the following:

- The early 2010 conclusion by the International Bar Association (IBA) that the legislative framework of the Tribunal fell short of recognised international standards and required reform;

- That the IBA, the US Ambassador for Global Justice, Stephen Rapp and others have criticised the Tribunal’s procedures and the evident bias of the Chairman of the Tribunal;

- The request by the Parliamentary Human Rights Group for the IBA to conduct a fresh assessment of the Tribunal, its procedures and practices, seeking the advice from Ambassador Rapp, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and its special procedures mechanisms;

- The looming threat of the death penalty on conviction of the defendants;

- The arrest of Mir Quasem Ali, a leading member of the Islamist party Jamaat-e-Islami and the owner and director of newspaper and media group Diganta Media, whose only crime appeared to have been the apparent criticism of the Tribunal set up by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina;

- Rather than a retributive approach, the Tribunal should follow the justice and reconciliation examples set in South Africa and Northern Ireland, amongst others.

In turn, I addressed the House of Lords on the proceedings at the Tribunal, informing them of my meeting with the Minister and expressing disappointment and concern at the fact that I had been waiting for the Minister’s written confirmation for a considerable time. I called the Baroness Warsi, in her response to the debate, to confirm that it was the Government’s view that such a visit would be: (i) timely; (ii) provide the potential to properly assess and evaluate proceedings before the Tribunal; and (iii) that the Bangladesh Government should be encouraged to comply with the oral assurance that they have already given.

In her response, Baroness Warsi stated that although the British Government supports the principle of bringing an end to immunity for crimes committed during the war, it is essential that: any trial meets appropriate human rights standards, the defendants be given a fair trial (including the right to conduct a proper defence) and trials should be open and transparent. She confirmed that the Her Majesty’s Government had called on the Government of Bangladesh, publicly and privately, to ensure that trials meet appropriate international standards, and that it would continue to do so. As regards my specific proposal to send a group of senior lawyers of all parties from the House of Lords to the Tribunal, she assured me that she would consider them and respond in writing. She has given encouragement to my proposal.

I am disappointed to report that despite repeated calls to the Government of Bangladesh, no formal written invitation has been issued welcoming a group of senior lawyers to visit the Tribunal in order to meet everyone concerned in the proceedings and discuss the concerns raised by the international community.”

Mammoth Gathering by Save Bangladesh at British Parliament Square: Either Ensure Fair Trial under International Supervision or Release Opposition Leaders

London, Tuesday the 20 November 2012.

This afternoon a large protest took place at the Parliament Square in front of the historic Palace of Westminster, the home of the British Parliament by London based Human Rightsorganization, Save Bangladesh.

Thousands of Bangladeshis from different parts of the United Kingdom joined the demonstration to record their discontent with the current Awami League led government on issues ranging from extra-judicial killings, forced disappearance, endemic and high profile corruption, soaring inflation and price hike to unfair and highly politically motivated war crimes trial.

Reverberating the square with chants and slogans the meeting started at in the early afternoon presided over by Nazrul Islam, Barrister-at-law and President of Save Bangladesh. Men and women converged carrying colorful banners and festoons with pictures of the fallen/tortured humanbeings under the corrupt government which happens to have pardoned 21 convicted murderers from their own party while holding kangaroo trial against most innocent people whose only crime was that they belong to the opposition parties.

Mohammad Abu Baker Molla, Barrister-at-law, HR activist and Coordinator of Save Bangladesh, UK warned the AL government about the dangerous path it is choosing for themselves and the nation, which is an exact copy of current PM’s father, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who tried to suppress opposition by killing hundreds of thousands of people including thousands of freedom fighter, banning mass media and all opposition political parties but that could not save him at last.

Referring to Arab Spring, Abdullah Faliq – Head of Researcher, Cordoba Foundation, asked the government to take lessons from Egypt, Tunisia and other despotic regimes who tried all their best to remain in power but failed. Not only them, their corrupt children and family members also fallen to the knee from the top.

In the name of international war crime tribunal, the AL government had created a caricature of medieval street justice of tyrant rulers but alas their monarchs could not last long, saidAnas at Tikriti – Founding Member of British Muslim Initiative and Cordova Foundation; he asked the Muslim PM to act fairly or be prepared to suffer the consequences.

Muhidur Rahman, Chairperson of Bangladesh Centre for Social Development, said that Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami (BJI) is a registered political party with licence to work freely anywhere in the country. They got representation in the current parliament while BJI had participated in all the democratic elections held under the current government, he added. Hence, the constitution of the country allowed them to organise protest and seminars which should not be attacked by ruling party cadres and riot police.

If a democratic party is pushed to the wall and banned outright, warned M A Malik – former secretary of the UK BNP, it will serve as a boomerang for the government and country in the long run. He reminded PM that she had promised under oath not to take actions out of anger or annoyance which is a sign of fascist intolerance.

Thousands of on lookers both British and tourists eagerly joined in to learn more about the critical situation in Bangladesh. A number of members of British parliament, from both houses, came out in support of the protest and promised to raise their concern with the relevant body.

Professor Abdul Kader Saleh, President of UK KhelafotMojlish, raised concern on recent abduction of the defencewitness from the Tribunal gate and condemned the threats made against the defence counsels by government intelligence.

Retired Brigadier Usman Khalid of Pakistan Rifah Partycriticised the sporadic violations of human rights which, on most occasions, instigated by the ruling party thugs and criminals. Sheikh Mohammad Al Massari from Saudi Arabia reminded the PM and AL leaders that the oppressors had their end and Allah would certainly help the oppressed one very soon.

Mufti Shah Sadruddin, President of Jamiat-e-Ulama Islam Europe, told the crowd that the present government had failed in every aspects of public life; comparing them with the Pharaohs of Egypt, the AL government would be drowned soon, he added.

Many other prominent speakers also spoke on the trial of Islamic Scholars like Mowlana Saeede who was twice voted to Parliament by the huge Hindu minority constituents; never in last four decades, there was a single crime recorded with the local police against him, said Mowlana Maudud Hasan,ofDawatul Islam UK & Ire.

Hasan Mueen Uddin, Vice President of Dawatul Islam UK & Ire, Ayub Khan from IFE, M Ghaneem from Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt, Maolana Shuaib Ahmed of JUIE, UmarAli from Federation of Students’ Islamic Societies UK and Mohammed Khozber of Finsbury Mosque also spoke on the injustices committed by the AL led government and its terrorist  sister organisation around the country.

The crowd demanded for fair trial under the auspices of UN and ICC, otherwise to release the opposition leaders at once. If the government fails to allow the peaceful protest by BJI activists, they would be held liable for any subsequent consequences by people and international community.

Later on a group of delegates led by Nazrul Islam, Barrister-at-law and President of Save Bangladesh and Mohammad Abu Baker Molla, Barrister-at-law, HR activist and Coordinator of Save Bangladesh UK placed a petition to British Prime Minsterat 10 Downing Street and Submitted a Memorandum to House of Lords.

মীর কাশেম আলীঃ এক স্বপ্নদ্রষ্টার প্রতিচ্ছবি -পুস্পিতা

চে গুয়েভারার বলিভিয়ান ডায়েরি আমি পেয়েছিলাম হঠাৎ করেই। কলেজ শিক্ষিকা এক আত্মীয়ের টেবিলে দেখে নিয়ে এসেছিলাম। তার আদর্শ ও কৌশলের সাথে একমত হওয়া যায় না। তারপরও আদর্শের প্রতি তার একাগ্রতা, তা প্রতিষ্ঠার জন্য কঠিন সংগ্রাম আসলেই বিরল। কিউবা বিপ্লবের পর চে চাইলে খুব সুখেই জীবন যাপন করতে পারতেন। কিন্তু ওই যে বিপ্লব রক্তে ঢুকে গিয়েছিল, তা তাকে কিউবাতে স্থির থাকতে দেয়নি। বলিভিয়ায় ছুটে গিয়েছিলেন আরেক বিপ্লবের উদ্দেশ্য। সফল হননি। সেখানে চে আটক হলেন। জীবন মৃত্যুর ব্যবধান এক সুতো। সিআইএ এজেন্টের বিভিন্ন প্রশ্নের উত্তরে চুপ থাকলেও সর্বশেষ যখন প্রশ্ন করা হলো, এখন কি ভাবছেন? তখন উত্তর না দিয়ে পারেন নি। বলেছিলেন, “ভাবছি- বিপ্লবের মৃত্যু নেই।”

মীর কাশেম আলী। তার সম্পর্কে খুব বেশি জানিনা। তবে চেষ্ঠা করেছি। যা বুঝেছি তা হলো আধুনিক বাংলাদেশে ইসলামী বিপ্লবের ব্যাতিক্রমী এক স্বপ্নদ্রষ্টা। আমার রিয়েলাইজেশন সম্পূর্ণ ঠিক নাও হতে পারে। তবে বাংলাদেশে যারা ইসলামী বিপ্লবের স্বপ্ন দেখেন তাদেরকে শুধুমাত্র রাজনীতি, ওয়াজ মাহফিলের ভিতর সীমাবদ্ধ না রেখে ব্যবসা-বাণিজ্য, সমাজসেবা, মিডিয়া সাংস্কৃতিক কর্মকান্ড ইত্যাদির ভিতর নিয়ে এসে সবকিছুকে ইসলামের আলোকে সাজানোর এক প্রবল বাসনা আছে মীর কাশেম আলী ও তার সমমনাদের।

সফলও হয়েছেন। যা বাংলাদেশের ইসলামী রাজনীতির ক্ষেত্রে নতুন এক ডাইমেনশান সৃষ্টি করেছে। একবার পড়েছিলাম, তুরস্কের নাজমুদ্দীন আরবাকান সবসময় বলতেন, ”“Turkey is in her way back to Islam” তিনি কাজ শুরু করেছিলেন একটা কফি হাউস দিয়ে। সেটা ছিল এক নতুন কৌশল, অর্থনৈতিক প্রতিষ্ঠান দিয়ে ইসলাম প্রতিষ্ঠার সংগ্রাম। ইস্তাম্বুলে ঐ ক্যাফেটা এখনও আধুনিক তুরস্কের ইসলামি আন্দোলনের সুতিকাগার হিসেবে পরিচিত। তাকে একবার তার বন্ধু প্রশ্ন করেছিলেন- নাজমুদ্দিন, একটা ফুল দিয়ে আপনি কিভাবে বসন্ত আনবেন? তিনি বলেছিলেন- বসীর, বসন্ত শুরু হয় দুই একটা ফুল ফোটার মধ্য দিয়ে। দেখবেন, তূর্কীতে আবার ইসলামি হুকুমাত আসবেই আসবে। তিনিই প্রথম বলেছিলেন, “যদি এখনই চাও ইসলামি হুকুমাত কায়েম করতে তাহলে আমরা ব্যর্থ হব। কারণ তখন আমাদের শত্রু“রা ভেতর ও বাইরের সব দিক থেকে আঘাত হানবে। আসুন আমরা প্রথমে নিজেদেরকে ইসলামের খাটি অনুসারী করে তুলি, আর দুই একটা করে ইসলামের সৌন্দর্য সমাজে ফুটিয়ে তুলি। আসুন আমরা মানুষকে বুঝাই ইসলামি জীবন বিধানের প্রায়োগিক দিক গুলো। ব্যবসা করে শিখাই ‘ইহাই ইসলামী ব্যবসা নীতি’।” দেখা গেল আধুনিক তুরস্কের ব্যবসা বাণিজ্য তার লোকদের হাতেই এসে গেল। তিনি বলেছিলেন: ‘স্কুল মাদ্রাসা বানিয়ে আসুন সবাইকে দেখিয়ে দিই ইসলামি শিক্ষা কাকে বলে’। ফলে এমন কোন গ্রাম আজ তুরস্কে নেই যেখানে আরবাকানদের প্রতিষ্ঠিত স্কুল নেই এবং মানের দিক দিয়ে সেগুলো সব চেয়ে ভাল স্কুল। সেখান থেকে পাস করে অন্ততঃ ইসলাম বিদ্বেষী কেউ হচ্ছে না।

মীর কাশেম আলীরা হয়তো সেই কৌশলই নেয়া শুরু করেছিলেন। গতানুগতিক ধর্মীয় ওয়াজের বিপরীতে সর্বস্তরের মানুষের বোধগম্য ভাষায় কুরআনের আলো ছড়িয়ে দেয়ার কার্যকর পন্থা নিয়েছিলেন মাওলানা সাঈদী। তিনিও ধর্মনিরপেক্ষতাবাদীদের হাতে আটক। ব্যবসা-বাণিজ্যকে ইসলামীকরণের ব্যাতিক্রমী পন্থায় কাজ শুরু করেছিলেন মীর কাশেম আলী। এখন তথাকথিত যুদ্ধাপরাধ মামলায় তাকেও আটক করা হয়েছে। অনেক কুসংস্কারের বিপরীতে প্রশ্নোত্তরের মাধ্যমে মৌলিক ইসলামের আলো ছড়ানোর পদ্ধতি গ্রহণ করেছিলেন মাওলানা আবুল কালাম আজাদ। তিনিও প্রতিহিংসার স্বীকার। আর বাংলাদেশের ইসলামী রাজনীতির দিকপালদের তো কারাগারে ঢুকানো হয়েছেই।

যাদের আটক করা হয়েছে তারা সবাই বিদেশে চাইলে খুব ভাল ভাবেই উন্নত জীবন যাপন করতে পারতেন। কিন্তু ওই যে ইসলামী বিপ্লবের চেতনা রক্তে ঢুকে গিয়েছে সেই চেতনা তাদের দেশ ত্যাগ করতে দেয়নি। ধর্মনিরপেক্ষতাবাদীরা তাদের চুড়ান্ত আঘাত হানা শুরু করেছে। এ অবস্থায় কি আলোর পথে চলা বন্ধ হয়ে যাবে? না বন্ধ হতে পারেনা। বিভিন্ন দেশে এসব কঠিন পথ পাড়ি দিয়েই বিজয় এসেছে। এখানেও আসবে…
