If you have read any of my previous posts then you would know I despise both BNP and AL. It's just funny when the AL supporters claim moral superiority over BNP as if their government is so much better. They will gladly be ruled by one corrupt woman over another because that's the party supported by their family. The people have no one to blame but themselves.

I fully agree with your last sentence. Bangladeshis will blame politicians, but then are stupid enough to re-elect the same fools over and over again. If it's not one Begum, it's the other. Unfortunately, the alternatives are an ex-general who plundered the country throughout the 80s and a religious party full of rajakars.

In possibly the worst accident in terms of fatalities in the UAE, 16 of our countrymen lost their lives in a collision between a bus and truck in Al Ain. The death toll may rise, please keep them in your prayers.

There are a few survivors, some critical.

Women’s Leadership Breathes New Life into Bangladesh


A women-led village council prepares a “social map” of the local community. Credit: Naimul Haq/IPS

BARGUNA, Bangladesh , Feb 9 2013 (IPS) - Monashatoli, a small coastal village of 5,000 residents in Bangladesh’s southwestern Barguna district, located about 470 kilometres south of the capital Dhaka, is a living model of the success of bottom-up community development.

Here, a 15-member committee, elected from among local villagers and comprised primarily of women, oversees development projects from start to finish.

“Our prime focus is to improve the lives of the poor who usually get no opportunities for loans or employment and hardly have any voice in the development of (their) society,” Shiuli Begum, leader of the committee, which is known locally as a ‘gram samiti’ (or village council), told IPS.

To hear a woman in rural Bangladesh speak with pride and knowledge about a development project is not very common. A strong patriarchal culture runs deep in this South Asian country of 150 million people, most of whom live in rural areas, which effectively excludes scores of women from debates on poverty eradication.

JW Marriott plans Bangladesh hotel

Marriott International is planning to operate the 700-room JW Marriott Hotel Dhaka.

The luxury hotel, which will be built by Jamuna Group, will be part of a mixed-use development that will also include retail and office components, and construction of the hotel is already under way.

Simon Cooper, Marriott International’s president and managing director Asia Pacific, said: “With the existing hotel market currently underserved in Dhaka and with the future growth in the infrastructure sector, the demand for quality hotel accommodation in the city is growing strongly.

“This will be Marriott International’s second hotel in the city as we already have a Courtyard hotel under construction which we expect will open next year.”

Money Laundered by Koko
Tk 8cr on way from Singapore




Staff Correspondent

Quote:
A Singapore court yesterday directed the authorities to send back to Bangladesh around Tk 8 crore that was laundered by BNP Chairperson's youngest son Arafat Rahman Koko and one of his associates about nine years back.

On November 22 last year, the Anti-Corruption Commission brought back from Singapore 2.04 million Singaporean dollars (about Tk 13 crore) laundered by Koko and Ismail Hossain Saimon, son of former BNP minister Akbar Hossain, following a similar order by the same court.

On his return from Singapore, Attorney General Mabubey Alam told The Daily Star last night that the laundered money was deposited with the account of Lim Siew Cheng, a Singaporean businessman, at Singapore Overseas Bank.

Singapore's Subordinate Court-16 asked the bank to send back the money to the ACC in Bangladesh, said Alam, who flew to Singapore on Monday to attend the hearing on the money laundering case.

Koko set up a firm, Fairhill Consulting Ltd, in Singapore with the help of Cheng, who admitted to the Singapore court that he had deposited the money with the bank.

Default সংগীতব্যক্তিত্ব বুলবুলের ভাইয়ের লাশ উদ্ধার



বাংলাদেশের স্বনামধন্য সংগীতব্যক্তিত্ব আহমেদ ইমতিয়াজ বুলবুলের ভাই মিরাজ উদ্দিন আহমেদের মরদেহ গতকাল শনিবার রাতে উদ্ধার করা হয়েছে। কুড়িল উড়ালসড়কের নিচে রেললাইনের ওপরে লাশটি পড়ে ছিল।
ঢাকা মেডিকেল কলেজ হাসপাতালের ফরেনসিক বিভাগের প্রভাষক সোহেল মাহমুদ সাংবাদিকদের জানিয়েছেন, মিরাজকে শ্বাসরোধ করে হত্যা করা হয়েছে বলে প্রাথমিকভাবে ধারণা করা হচ্ছে।
বুলবুল মুক্তিযোদ্ধা হিসেবে একাত্তরের মানবতাবিরোধী অপরাধের অভিযোগে জামায়াতের সাবেক আমির গোলাম আযমের বিরুদ্ধে করা মামলায় সাক্ষ্য দিয়েছেন।
খিলক্ষেত থানার ভারপ্রাপ্ত কর্মকর্তা (ওসি) ফারুক আহমেদ প্রথম আলো ডটকমকে বলেন, যে জায়গায় লাশটি পাওয়া গেছে, সেটি রেলওয়ে পুলিশের আওতাভুক্ত। কুড়িল উড়ালসড়কের নিচে রেললাইনের পাশে নীল শার্ট পরা এক ব্যক্তির লাশ পড়ে থাকতে দেখে আশপাশের লোকজন কমলাপুর রেলওয়ে থানায় যোগাযোগ করে। পরে রেলওয়ে পুলিশের সদস্যরা রাত সোয়া একটার দিকে ঘটনাস্থলে যান।
কমলাপুর রেলওয়ে পুলিশ সূত্র জানায়, ঘটনাস্থলে যাওয়ার পর মৃত ব্যক্তির পকেটে থাকা মোবাইল ফোনটি বেজে ওঠে। পুলিশ সদস্যরা ফোনের কল ধরে ওই ব্যক্তির পরিচয় সম্পর্কে নিশ্চিত হন। জানতে পারেন, তাঁর নাম মিরাজ উদ্দিন আহমেদ। তিনি গীতিকার ও সুরকার আহমেদ ইমতিয়াজ বুলবুলের ভাই।
খিলক্ষেত থানার ওসি ফারুক আহমেদ জানান, মিরাজের মরদেহ উদ্ধার করে রাত চারটার দিকে খিলক্ষেত থানায় নেওয়া হয়। কেউ তাঁকে মেরে এখানে ফেলে গেছে বলে প্রাথমিকভাবে ধারণা করা হচ্ছে।
নিহত ব্যক্তির পরিবারের সদস্যদের দাবি, গোলাম আযমের বিরুদ্ধে করা মামলায় নিহতের ভাই সাক্ষী ছিলেন। এ কারণে তাঁকে খুন করা হতে পারে বলে তাঁরা মনে করছেন

Bangladesh and Pakistan
Duration: 10 minutes
First broadcast: Thursday 14 March 2013
Pascale Harter introduces two dispatches with personal stories and analysis of the subcontinent. Bangladesh has been roiled with protests and demonstrations in response to its judgement on crimes commutted during its journey to independence on 1971. From Dhaka, Anbarasan Ethirajan describes a journey to Chittagong to meet some of the most passionate defenders of some of the accused and their allies in the Jamaat e Islami party.

On the other hand, isn't it always best for writers to live in interesting, even if dangerous times? Owen Bennett Jones in Islamabad asks if chaos can stir creativity - and whether the current Pakistani literary renaissance draws on the country's risky "front-row seat to history".

Maybe Bangladesh has become the country Jinnah wanted to create

The Bangladeshi youth demands banning the Jamaat-e-Islami from politics and boycotting of institutions supporting or affiliated with Jamaat-e-Islami PHOTO: REUTERS
When East Pakistan decided to break away from West Pakistan in 1971, one of the leading factors was the lack of importance accorded by West Pakistan’s bureaucracy and intelligentsia towards the other part of the country. It is not a surprise that the attitude did not change even after the separation of Pakistan’s two wings.

Pakistan’s textbooks are still silent over the atrocities committed by our armed forces and their proxies in 1971. Although West Pakistan may have forgotten, but the people who were subjected to the inhumane behaviour just because they dreamt of a better future, remember it all too vividly.

The demand to prosecute the criminals from 1971 has reverberated in Bangladesh over the years. It was only in 2009 that an International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) was formed set up in Bangladesh to investigate and prosecute suspects for the atrocities committed in 1971.

It should also be noted that Bangladesh’s original constitution of 1972 had declared it a secular state but the 8th amendment, put in effect by General Hussain Mohammad Ershad in 1988, declared Islam as the state religion of Bangladesh. Interestingly, Pakistan also had a notorious 8th amendment to the 1973 constitution, giving the power to dissolve assemblies to the president, put in place by none other than General Ziaul Haq.

In 2010, the Bangladesh High Court declared the constitutional amendment that had changed the country’s secular status to that of an Islamic state was done without lawful authority. This is still pending in the Supreme Court.

It is against this background that the current Shahbag movement should be seen. It started on February 5, 2013 – the day Bangladesh’s ICT awarded a life sentence to Abdul Quader Molla nicknamed ‘Butcher of Mirpur’ for his part in the mass murder and rape of Bengalis in 1971. He is a senior leader of Bangladesh’s Jamaat-e-Islami.

A few days earlier, Delwar Hossain Sayeedi, also a senior leader of Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh, was sentenced to death on February 28 for war crimes committed during the 1971 Liberation War.

Bangladeshi youth has taken it upon themselves to protest the leniency of the decision awarded to Molla and have taken to gathering at a Dhaka city compound in droves since the past few weeks.

Justice in Bangladesh
Another kind of crime
Bangladesh’s war-crimes tribunal is sullying its judicial and political systems
Mar 23rd 2013

IN 1961 Israel kidnapped Adolf Eichmann from Argentina and put him on trial for crimes committed 20 years earlier. Eichmann had been secretary at the Nazis’ Wannsee conference that led to the Holocaust. His trial in Jerusalem was a model of meticulous process. The prosecutor was Israel’s attorney-general; the defence lawyer, a leading German attorney; the proceedings were broadcast. They were everything the Holocaust was not: open, subject to evidence and challenge, and legal.

Now consider the trials under way at the International Crimes Tribunal in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. There too, men are being tried for dreadful crimes committed many years ago, in this case in 1971, during Bangladesh’s war of independence from Pakistan. The defendants have been accused of genocide, mass murder, mass rape and attempting to exterminate whole groups of people. But their trials have fallen a long way short of Israel’s model of due process.
The government has interfered in the court’s deliberations. Public discussion of the proceedings has been restricted. The number of defence witnesses was curtailed. One was even kidnapped on the steps of the court. In one case, the presiding judge resigned and the death sentence was handed down by three men who had not heard all the witnesses. In another, the defendant was represented by a lawyer who did not have nearly enough time to prepare a case. That also ended in a death sentence. These are profound judicial failings, falling short not only of the standards of the Eichmann trial but also of the requirements of Bangladeshi law. They contradict repeated government assurances that the trials would be models of judicial process.

The ostensible and laudable aim of these trials was to help Bangladesh come to terms with its past by bringing to justice those responsible for the crimes that marred the nation’s birth. By this measure, the trials have been an utter failure. Because most of the accused are linked to Jamaat-e-Islami, an Islamist group allied to the main opposition party, the court process has become enmeshed within the country’s internecine politics. Jamaat thugs with home-made bombs have gone on the rampage; police have fought running battles with mobs; dozens have died. Bangladesh is descending into a spiral of intolerance. The government talks of banning Jamaat; the opposition is becoming more aggressively Islamist; rumours are spreading that an election due this year may be postponed.

Bangladesh Riots Threaten Its Boom
By ALEX FRANGOS in Hong Kong and SYED ZAIN AL-MAHMOOD in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Troubles in Bangladesh are beginning to spoil its reputation among foreign companies that had flooded into the country—and are highlighting risks to investors looking for new manufacturing bases cheaper than China.

An upswing in the past few years that had lifted this impoverished South Asian nation into one of the world's top clothing exporters now risks slipping through its fingers after a series of tumultuous events.

Violent protests this month over the sentencing of three Islamist opposition leaders for war crimes during Bangladesh's 1971 war of independence have led to at least 60 deaths and widespread strikes.


The protests come on the heels of two apparel factory fires, one in November and a smaller one in January, which killed a combined 119 garment workers and attracted widespread negative press overseas. Rights groups said the fires reflected sometimes-dangerous working conditions and lax enforcement of labor standards in an economy that has become a major supplier to American and European retailers.

Now, some companies are speaking of the country in the past tense.
"Bangladesh was a good place to do business. But you have to read the political trends in the world," says Christophe Roussel, chief executive for global nonfood sourcing and logistics at Tesco Corp.,

Bangladesh gags award-wining blogger

The government of Bangladesh has taken the radical step of banning the blog of Asif Mohiuddin, a 2012 DW Bobs blog award winner. Mohiuddin was brutally attacked by unknown assailants in Dhaka last January.
The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has asked community blog owners to ban a number of blogs which have been deemed "anti-state" and "anti-religious." Confirming the removal of Asif Mohiuddin's blog link, Syeda Gulshan Ferdous Jana, founder of Bangladesh's first Bangla language community blog site "Somewhere in Blog," told DW, "Last Thursday we received an official email from the BTRC. This is the first time in the over seven years of somewhereinblog.net that authorities have issued written instructions to discipline bloggers."
"The email named four bloggers, including Asif Mohiuddin's blog profile, and advised us to permanently remove all of these blogs immediately," said Jana.
Mohiuddin's brutal attack
Asif Mohiuddin's blog was one of the most read web pages in Bangladesh and is known for its strong criticism of religious fundamentalism and Bangladesh's "anti-people politics." The blogger was brutally attacked last January for spreading his ideas. He survived the attack with serious injuries and continues to receive threats from fundamentalists.
The title of Mohiuddin's blog alone was provocative - "God, Almighty only in name but impotent in reality" was the name he gave it. Islamists have organized a number of protests in the country in the past few weeks, in which they have called for the death of Asif Mohiuddin and other bloggers.

Something that may have slipped under the radar, given the ongoing political turmoil:

"Bangladesh faces tough questions"

Quote:
Bangladesh yesterday faced a barrage of questions including those on trade union and work environment in factories at the fourth round of USTR hearing on GSP continuation in Washington.

The panel of judges had asked more than 150 questions for about one and a half hours, a member of Bangladesh delegation told The Daily Star over the phone.

“I am hopeful that the US government will not cancel or suspend the GSP facility for Bangladesh, as they are satisfied with our documents submitted and the replies during the hearing,” said Commerce Secretary Mahbub Ahmed.
The USTR hearing obviously raises some valid and pressing concerns regarding the conditions of our garments and shrimp industries, in the context of evaluating whether to continue, suspend or cancel our GSP facility. At the same time, if such a chain of horrifying incidents had not occurred over the past couple of years, would it still not have been worthwhile to consider whether to continue with this GSP facility or not? After all, as the article indicates, only 0.54% of our total exports to the US are even under this scheme!

Why continue under a scheme, which only yields $26 million/annum, but allows for the US to summon another sovereign country's bureaucrats, businessmen and civilian experts at will to appear in front of a quasi-judicial commission?

These bureaucrats, businessmen and civilian experts should be answering these very questions in front of our OWN courts and commissions.

Tens of thousands of Islamic activists prayed on the streets of the Bangladeshi capital today during a rally calling for the introduction of blaspemy laws and the restoration of a caretaker government.

Members of the Islami Andolan Bangladesh are demanding the arrest of 'atheist bloggers who insulted Islam' and to pass laws punishing those who 'insulted Islam in the parliament'.

They have announced plans to 'lay siege' to the office of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on April 25 if their demands are not met.
