Angry BSF Brutality!

Chapainawabganj, Jan 15 (bdnews24.com) — The Indian border guards have broken an arm and both legs of a Bangladeshi youth.

Shahjahan Ali, 25, was caught by Border Security Force (BSF) early Saturday near Masudpur when he was trying to cross the border.

He was severely tortured and left unconscious.

Bangladeshi border guards and locals recovered him around 12.30pm and took him to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital.

Shahjahan told bdnews24.com that BSF men beat him with a rods and sticks.

Deputy commander of the 39 Rifles Battalion Maj Tarek Mahmud told bdnews24.com that Shahjahan's left arm and both legs had been broken.

"He was trying to go to India for travelling. Men from 151 BSF Malda battalion's Shuvapur camp captured him. They left him near Shingnagar border."

border guards everywhere tend to be ham handed. attempting an illegal crossing is never a good idea. many a times the dalals who manage these crossings would leave people in the middle of BDR-BSF crossfire and simply run away.

It is a pity that we live in lands with borders. Strangely, patriotism is the very platform that voice the reasoning for such borders.

I am sorry that Shahjahan is in a bad way. We don't know the truth behind his intention to visit India. It would perhaps be plausible to assume that he wanted to make a better life for himself. I wish him a speedy recovery. I wish there were no borders and that the love for a cultural identity was not dependent on physical, and material lines drawn across a map. That sad reality is to blame..

Dhaka formally protests Felani's murder

Quote:
Dhaka, Jan 17 (bdnews24.com) – Dhaka has protested the killing of an innocent girl by the Border Security Force of India along the Kurigram border on Jan 7.

A note verbale protesting the killing was handed over to Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Rajeet Mitter at the foreign ministry on Sunday when he met acting foreign secretary Mostafa Kamal.

The girl, 'Felani', was shot dead by BSF at Anantapur while she was returning to Bangladesh with her father as her marriage had been settled with a local boy.

The Indian diplomat assured the acting foreign secretary of conveying the concerns of the Bangladesh government to Indian authorities and taking necessary actions to prevent recurrence of such inhuman acts along the border.

Home minister Shahara Khatun on Sunday also protested the killing and said it would be discussed at a home secretary-level meeting with India this month.

Meanwhile, a writ petition has been filed with the High Court seeking trial of those who failed to protest the killing of 'Felani.

National Forum for Protection of Human Rights filed the petition on Monday with the bench of justices Mohammad Miftah Uddin Choudhury and Jahangir Hossain.


The petition seeks directives to stop killing of Bangladeshis along the border and compensate 'Felani's family. The court will hear the petition on Jan 23.


According to a human rights organisation, Odhikar, BSF kills one Bangladeshi every four days. It also claims that 74 Bangladeshis were killed, 72 injured and 43 abducted in 2010.

India to provide BSF non-lethal weapons
Quote:
India's Border Security Force is providing non-lethal weapons to its personnel after human rights organisations accused it of being trigger-happy and killing innocents on the country's border with Bangladesh.

Highly-placed sources in the Indian government in New Delhi said that additional non-lethal guns would be provided to the BSF personnel guarding the country's border with Bangladesh in the states of Assam and West Bengal in phases.

New York-based Human Rights Watch brought out a report last month titled 'Trigger Happy,' alleging that the BSF were killing people with impunity on the Bangladesh-India border. The report alleged that over 900 people had been killed over the past 10 years along India's border with Bangladesh in West Bengal alone.

Highly-placed sources in New Delhi said that the non-lethal guns and rubber bullets were being provided to the BSF soldiers to help them deter the infiltrators, smugglers and miscreants without unnecessarily taking lives. Sources said that the BSF would also be provided with choppers to step up surveillance along the Bangladesh-India border.

This is a letter written by an American and published on bdnews24.com. I lost the usual me in this write-up...and at the end of the letter, found myself crying.

A Letter to India…
January 25, 2011

fragments_home_editor_letter_image1

Dear India,
Recent killings of children in both the United States and Bangladesh have moved me. When I can’t wrap my mind around what can happen in this world, the order and structure imposed by verse can help clear my mind. Therefore, I have enclosed a poem at the bottom of the write-up.

We Americans have about one image that we can keep in our head about a country at a time. The one many of us have of India is that of Gandhi, peacefully leading a march to the sea to make salt. We tend to think of India as a spiritual, non-violent land. Perhaps that’s why so many people I’ve mentioned it to here are shocked by India’s border killings of innocent Bangladeshis, especially the girl, Felani. It doesn’t fit with the image we in America have of India.

How can any nation justify such abuses of basic human rights, especially a nation that, because of its colonial history, should understand the sufferings of the oppressed? I suppose you can counter, “Well, how can the United States, alleged proponent of liberty, ever support repressive regimes?”

Granted, we are guilty of our own forms of hypocrisy. Our hands aren’t clean either. Still, we the individual citizens of any nation have the right and the duty to stand up and say something when we hear of atrocities, wherever they occur. First and foremost, I am a father and a family man. I have a 15-year-old daughter. That gives me an emotional bond with Felani’s father that I can’t dismiss silently. I must respond, and perhaps keep responding, until this senseless slaughter is just an unfortunate chapter in the history of India. A father of one child is the father of all children. The sons and daughters of Bangladesh are my sons and daughters as well.

I know India and Bangladesh are going to address these matters. India promises within the next few months to “resolve these matters”. This is a positive step forward, but it does not bring back the dead, or answer the question as to how a government steps over the line from a misplaced sense of superiority into a callous disregard for human life. No high-level talks should have to be conducted for governments to prescribe to some very basic level of human decency, especially among friends and neighbours. Those who perpetrated and ordered these acts are criminals, and those who, to this point, condoned these acts should be brought to justice. Felani was not the first innocent child to die.

The Killing of 15-year-old Felani by Indian Border Guards… An American Father Responds.

Mahatma, help me make some sense

Of slaughtered children on your fence

Your nation stained, your image scarred

By Sahib Death, the Border Guard.


On the wire, mournful cries

Of parents rise into the skies

The bullets steal a nation’s youth

While politics obscure the truth.


If madness and mistrust increase

If we can slay our men of peace

Can killing children be that hard,

For Sahib Death, The Border Guard?


I hear a father’s cry of grief

Of agony beyond belief

And wonder what a monstrous thief

Could snuff a light so bright, so brief?


Our tears and rage won’t make us blind

We can’t be violent, kill in kind

For we’d grow soulless, damned and hard

As Sahib Death, the Border Guard.


Back here, we’ve suffered tragic ends

The work of madmen, not of friends.

My nation mourns the rare events

That happen daily on your fence.


At least we know each precious soul

Has eluded death’s patrol,

Has reached a land which can’t be barred

By Sahib Death, the Border Guard.


Descendants of the dead who fell

Into a distant Martyr’s well

Belay the murd’rous disregard

Of Sahib Death, your border guard!


Beloved readers, I have said it before. Bangladesh, from this “Martian” perspective, to quote aladin’s article of last week, is a nation of colour and energy. I could do a whole piece on how people use colours to decorate that which is most important to them, our street signs are colourful, our advertisements are colourful, our cars are colourful. Even our gas stations are colourful. In Bangladesh, looking at the photographs of the election queues, it seems that the people themselves are the most colourful element on the landscape. Everyone is so brightly, so lavishly dressed. What this means to me is that yours is a nation that subconsciously understands and celebrates its people above all else. When any of this colourful number, especially children, has her life brutally cut short, I feel it a world away.

This article originally stopped at the end of the poem. My editor emailed me to ask if this was really all I had to say. As I did research on this issue, read the story about that 13-year-old boy shot dead across the border during a shouting match with an Indian border guard a few years back, or this girl who was shot and left to die on the fence, at the age of 15, I had no words. My youngest daughter is 15, and my youngest son is 13. They are the elements of my life that I would dress in bright colours. Every parent worries about their children’s futures. I know, only from an American perspective what it is to burrow through the couch to find change to buy milk, or use a newspaper and some sphagnum moss as a diaper, and even how your ears burn when the nice person next to you in church gives you money because they see, as a new and struggling parent, that you need the money. And you face it all, you struggle and you fight, because you are a father and you do it for the sake of your child. Of all the ways to identify yourself: nationality, religion, race, party, or social class, above everything else, parenthood has the power to transform the way you live your life. It is a universal identifier. We, the fathers of the world, belong to a common brotherhood.

I struggled in the early years of fatherhood because my wife and I were still students, and students are universally poor. Here in American want is often just a temporary condition for the soon to be middle-class. This is a puddle that evaporates within a few years, and though my family walked the tightrope all those years ago, we were never without the safety net of my own father, if we really needed help. I never had to risk being shot by foreign soldiers, allies at that, to put bread on the table.

But I imagine a Bangladeshi father on the day his daughter dressed to go with him and arrange the particulars of a marriage with a husband in India. I imagine how a tear might have caught in the father’s throat to see his girl dressed up, grown and engaged to be married, how it would pain him to part with her, especially since he would eventually be separated from her new family and from his grandchildren, by a national border. I imagine the memories Felani’s dad would have of his little girl’s childhood, the struggles, the dreams, the prayers that all fathers have for their cherished daughters, who, no matter how old they get, we fathers permanently regard as loving, big-eyed seven year olds. I know the thought that sometimes goes through a father’s head. “In my youth, I dreamed big dreams that didn’t come true, but I have this wonderful child. If this was the trade, my dreams for in exchange for her life, I got the best of the bargain.” I know the memory of the soft hand of a ten year old girl, holding her father’s own rough, calloused hand, telegraphing through her warm fingers her absolute faith and trust in her father’s protective strength. I know the secret prayer of all fathers that God make them worthy of that trust. We see a horrible picture of a girl on a fence, but I see the father, present for her 15 years, for every stroke of the hairbrush, for every wiggly baby tooth, worrying, dreaming of a safer, happier life for his daughter.

I don’t know whether Felani’s father was rich or poor, or what sort of safety net he had for his daughter. I only know that all of his earthly struggle, love, and concern were erased by a single barbarous act. I only know that now, as this far-off brother of mine walks home from his labours searching for blessings, the absence of his little girl’s hand will permanently remind him that he was not strong enough to protect his own trusting little angel from the cruel indifference of this world.

Honestly, there are no words.

It's a sad reality.
Our regional superpower dictates and we listen.
They give us "culture" and Rukh Khans and we swallow it through boob-tube.
They give us some water or too much water and our rivers dry or cry.
They give us our cows for Qurbani and sharees for futani.
They give us trigger happy "jawans" and we give them our jowans. For target practice.

At the end of the day, the responsibility lies with us. Are we going to be lemmings or will we show we have our own belief, culture, ambitions and will. Don't look to eendia. Look to yourselves.

This is what the BSF chief has to say about these cold blooded murders

“The head of the BSF, Raman Srivastava, says that people should not feel sorry for the victims, claiming that since these individuals were illegally entering Indian territory, often at night, they were “not innocent” and therefore were a legitimate target.”

http://unheardvoice.net/blog/2011/01...rder-killings/

A bunch of murderers, that’s what BSF is.

Such deaths are unfortunate. Lets face it, if you get shot while trying to cross the border illigely then who is responsible. You can not blame BSF or Indian Gov for that or expect BD gov to protect you. We love to get patriotic and emotional whithout looking at facts.

By the way, I am no Indian fan or well wisher. I am also not one of those patriotic Bangladeshis who can't spend a day without Hindi movies and music. Sadly, this is how most of Bangladeshis are. Some of us take great pride in speaking Urdu/Hindi for no reason. We are confused, very confused about our identity. Shahrukh Khan visit turned out to be a life and death matter for many people. Disgraceful. It's even more disgraceful when the most popular newspaper covers it on front page.

Sometimes I wonder we probably would have been in a better situation if we officially became a part of India. Becasue we are unofficially a part of India, rather a dumping bag. We gleefully continue adopt bombay culture and make it official. Even sounth Indian states refuse to adopt bombay culture. You might be shocked to find out most people would not even know who shahrukh khan is.

Long story short, if we want to show some selfrespect and stad up against India, we must do that culturally first.

Very weak argument by the BSF head, doesnt even come close to justifying the killing. Arrest them, lock them up, beat them.... anything is fine but why kill them like that. These are not animals encroaching your land...

smuggling in the borders are always on full swing and I am sure the Indian businessmen in the border areas are more than happy to have these Bangladeshi clientele, probably gets paid in dollars so even better. And BSF gets their cut for the safe passage of the smugglers and the smuggled goods.

So no, they are not shooting the 'suspects' ....

What logic...awesomebulous!!!

When you see someone crossing the border fence illegally, you just shoot them dead...hey, "our duty is to safeguard our country from illegal entries...so we must shoot them and kill them, just like what we do to mosquitoes and roaches". Right?

You'll go a long way with that logic.

No you should't.

But I've got to wonder why some Bangladeshis are so desperte they risk their lives to go to India.WTF? We have to take care of our people so they don't even reach that point. God knows how harshly treated they are once they actually make it to India, working at peoples houses as servants and such.
You guys are justified in expressing anger at the BSF's murders. But why the hell do our people cross the border in the first place. You should ask that too. Is it an obsession with India? Is it desperation within Bangladesh?

You'll go a long way with that logic.

And start by not crossing the border illegally.
You're right, some Bangladeshis act even more Indian than Indians (like South Indians don't even care to speak or learn Hindi). But some Bangladeshis jump to speak in Hindi (even though it's incorrect hindi with 60% Bengali words).
