Quick execution of the verdict is needed, the faster we can get rid of these scum, the faster we can get on with other things..

With every execution a bloody chapter of the rich bengali history moves closer to its conclusion.

Why were the Hindus targeted in 1971? I never knew the real reason.

prosecute the Pakistani, American and British officials also , who backed the genocide.
These guys were the small fry. Their main sponsors were from these 3 countries.
Prosecution even in absentia, sends a strong message to the perpetrators that they will be shamed and exposed in front of the world.

The reason that usa is targeting BD at the moment is to dissuade them from such a move.

So it seems Bangalis were killing other Bangalis and Pakistan army got the blame.

East Pakistan had a higher population than West Pakistan. West Pakistan had a higher Muslim population than East Pak. The difference was Hindus. Also the Bengalis used what was perceived to be the "Hindu" Devanagari script. Wore sarees. So the Hindus were allegedly responsible EP. Even in Operation Searchlight Hindus were targeted.

prosecute the Pakistani, American and British officials also , who backed the genocide.

Americans provided covert support to Pak. Didn't know Brits did too.
