Biswajit Killing, Dhaka Court sentenced 8 to death, 13 for life imprisonment. Awami League and BCL are involved in the brutal killing.
Upananda Brahmachari | HE Media | New Delhi | Dec19, 2013:: Hindu minorities in Bangladesh are not safe in the hands of ruling Awami League. Now it has been proved that the Awami league is the other side of the same BNP-Jamaat coin. On road murder of Biswajit in the broad daylight in last year was a brutal act of Ruling Party – Awami League’s Student Union – Bangladesh Chatra League members.
On Dec 18, a fast track court in Dhaka being Speedy Trial Tribunal-4, sentenced eight BCL activists to death and thirteen others to life imprisonment for killing tailor Biswajit Das (24 yrs) in Old Dhaka’s Bahadur Shah Park area, a year ago during the opposition’s blockade on December 9, 2012 .
Sentencing the activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), the student union of ruling Awami League, the judge observed that the Biswajit murder case was quite sensitive and different from other lawsuits.
The cold blooded crime against a minority Hindu youth was committed in broad daylight by the ruling side, as an usual attack upon the minority people in Bangladesh, especially upon Hindu minorities by fundamental elements in any political party. It was a heinous and deplorable killing, said the court about the incident that happened during the opposition’s blockade on black day of December 9 last year.
From this verdict of the Court, it is crystal clear that Minority Hindus of Bangladesh are not even safe in the Awami Rule alike the Jamaat-BNP regimen.
Out of the 8 condemned killers for ‘hang to death’, 2 are absconding, while 11 of the 13 convicts, who got life term, are also on the run.
The court observed that footage of the murder that had been broadcast on national and international media shocked all. The brutality of the offence had tarnished the country’s image before the entire world.
Delivering the verdict in a jam-packed courtroom around 12.25 pm, the judge observed that Biswajit’s murder was different from other such cases, given the gruesomeness and brutality of the crime. “Considering the gravity of the offences, the tribunal thinks justice would be served by awarding death penalty to the accused,” the judge said.
Most of those convicted were former students of Jagannath University and obviously involved in Awami League politics.
The judge said it would be unjust for the victim’s family, if the convicts were freed, because of their political affiliations. “If the convicts are released without justice, such kind of gruesome killings will take place across the country from time to time,” he added.
Those (8) awarded the death sentence are Rafiqul Islam Shakil, Mahfuzur Rahman alias Nahid, Emdadul Haque alias Emdad, GM Rasheduzzaman alias Shaon, Md Shaiful Islam and Kayyum Mia alias Tipu. Rajan Talukdar and Mir Mohammad Noor-e-Alam alias Limon. Of them, Talukdar and Limon are absconding. Those given life sentences were also fined Tk 20,000 each.
Those (13) sentenced to life in prison are Golam Mostafa, AHM Kibria, Yunus Ali, Tarik Bin Johor Tomal, Alauddin, Obaidur Qader Tahsin, Imran Hossain, Azizur Rahman, Al-Amin, Rafiqul Islam, Kamrul Hasan, Monirul Haque Pavel, and Mosharraf Hossain. Execept Mostofa and Kibria, the rest have been absconding since the killing. The 13 have been also proven guilty in another case of illegal assembling and awarded six months in jail and Tk 500 fine for each.
Biswajit was killed within an extreme Islamic exaltation of killing a Kaffir (Hindu). The brutality seen in the video footageamounts all the Islamic brutality so far. But, the media both in Bangladesh and India are silent about the extinction of minority Hindus through killing, raping, looting, terrorizing, evacuating and all other Islamic norms applicable for the kaffirs as per Islamic belief.
The hands of all political parties in Bangladesh are soaked with the blood of Hindu minorities. It is more than true and hard rock Islamic reality that the minority Muslim people are always blood thirsty of minority non-Muslim people.
Talking to media, Biswajit’s elder brother Uttam Kumar Das expressed satisfaction at the judgment in the sensational murder case. “I am satisfied…we got justice. We want immediate execution of the verdict. We urge the government to arrest the remaining convicts, who are on the run”, he added.
During a world-wide condemnation of Biswajit killing, on December 13, 2012, Prime Minister’s Press Secretary Abul Kalam Azad made a startling statement, claiming that no BCL or Awami activists were involved in Bishwajit’s murder.
Speaking to reporters at the Prime Minister’s Office, he gave particulars of six alleged murderers, including two ex-members of Islami Chhatra Shibir, a pro-Jamaat-e-Islami student body.
But, the truth has been revealed through the Court verdict for Biswajit murder in daylight that fake assurance of Bangladesh Prime Minister Seikh Hasina of Awami League has no substance for the protection of Hindu minorities in Bangladesh while the Hindus are brutally killed by the same Awami student outfit Bangladesh Chatra League.
Hindu Existence condemned the killing of Biswajit instantly with a global protest and from the beginning Hindu Existence categorically pointed out the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) and Awami League connection with Biswajit murder.
But, it is now a prime question whether the ruling Awami League will guard their party cadres or to redeem its sin of Biswajit killing. According to Bangladesh law, the High Court must review death penalties even if the convicts do not appeal against the lower court’s verdicts.
