    Shahbagh rally unites nation


    Politicians inspired
    Hasan Jahid Tusher

    The ruling Awami League believes the countrywide movement demanding capital punishment to war criminals has led to a new beginning to end the unfinished revolution of the Liberation War in 1971.

    Terming it a step forward in uniting the progressive and democratic forces, AL says the movement will once again draw a clear line between the pro- and anti-liberation forces.

    "The movement will inspire a qualitative change in the country's politics," said AL presidium member Obaidul Quader referring to the movement at Shahbagh.

    He said such spontaneous movement had not been seen in Bangladesh since the mass upsurge in 1969 and the liberation war in 1971. Through this movement it would be easier to tell who hold the spirit of 1971 and who of 1947.

    Quader, also the communications minister, yesterday told The Daily Star that the youths had given their message loud and clear. "They have expressed no-confidence in the prevailing ill politics. As politicians we have a lot to learn from this."

    Meanwhile, the main opposition BNP, which had been doubtful about the spirit of the movement and had described it as government-motivated, yesterday said the country had once again proved that it was still able to wake up and unite in any crisis.

    BNP Standing Committee Member Lt Gen (retd) Mahbubur Rahman said, "I personally support this movement. We oppose those who committed crimes against humanity."


    However, BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir kept from making any comment on the Shahbagh movement yesterday, when journalists asked for his reaction. He was placing wreath at the grave of his party founder and former president Ziaur Rahman in the capital.

    The Workers Party of Bangladesh, AL's ally in the 14-party combine, said those who raised questions about the war crimes trial had remained isolated from the people.

    Its president Rashed Khan Menon said the countrywide movement proved that the nation was united in the war crimes trial issue. "It is evident that the trial is not a partisan agenda, rather a national one," said Menon while addressing a party gathering before attending the Shahbagh movement in the capital.

    NO AL LEADERS WILL TALK AT SHAHBAGH
    Party insiders said AL President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had advised her party's top leaders not to speak at the Shahbagh demonstration, as the opposition might try to give the spontaneous movements a political colour.

    The directives came Thursday night after a few of the ruling party leaders and ministers, including AL Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif, were mistreated by some of the demonstrators of the mass movements.

    we all want their punishment..... However, BNP thinks that Qader Molla didnt commit such crime... Its also my position...... THOUGH i had my doubts. but after reading q/a of all 12 witnesses of the case... I am sure something is wrong with the trial..... They couldnt prove anything but declared him guilty.....

    What you or any individual thinks is inconsequential . There are Far Better People sitting in Bangladeshi Judiciary System who know the laws and have practiced it for decades . Their Judgement is all that matters . Hate Everyone but do not miscredit the Judicial system of your Country . Judicial System is one of the pillars on which Democracy Stands .

    Anyone with a hint of sanity & idea of BD politics won't except KZ's BNP to support this awami-leftist showdown. It is not Jamat the factor but it would be a political suicide for BNP. No one among those clowns would ever vote for KZ's BNP in a million years. No rocket science. BNP & JI have thousand times this support base to care about this awami-leftist farts. Am I wrong? :)

    The Jamati gang on this forum were going on about how close Jamat and the BNP are.

    I pointed out that they are not.

    This is yet another example. The BNP have basically endorsed this anti-war criminals mass protest.

    A protest in which speakers and protestors have en masse called out Jamati leaders names and said "Tui Rezakar".

    The BNP knows the people hate Jamat and rezakars and so will do either of two things.

    1. Ditch them in alliance as a liability.
    2. Make sure they have very little power in a coalition.

    No. 2 is easy to achieve as Jamat only got 2 seats out of 300 last time, this time they may be lucky to get 1.
