Badal comes down heavily on HRW, US envoy
Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD) lawmaker Moinuddin Khan Badal has criticised Human Rights Watch (HRW) for raising allegations of human rights violations, weakness of constitutional bodies and absence of inclusive politics in Bangladesh. Taking part in the general discussion on the thanksgiving motion of president's speech in the House on Tuesday, Badal asked the HRW whether Bangladesh's democracy could be inclusive if the state lets the masterminds of terrorism and perpetrators walk free. He said the global rights body needs to understand the cause of bitterness in Bangladesh's politics and the emergence of the nation for clarification about its political arena. “As long as the country's politics embodies bitterness, the situation has to be handled strictly,” Badal said. He also urged the HRW to assess Bangladesh's judiciary, flow of information and anti-graft activities, before teaching democracy to the country. On a separate note, referring to US Ambassador Marcia Bernicat's remarks on Islamic State targeting Bangladesh, he said that would never happen. “I would rather request that she go through our history, to get a clear idea that Bangladeshi people have nothing to do with what IS or Salafists are doing,” he said, adding Bangladeshis want development and do not want to be carriers of slogan-based politics. He further referred to a comment Bernicat had made praising the countrymen for engaging in politics. Seconding her statement, he said there will be no injustice and misrule in the presence of active political participation, and that is exactly what is happening in Bangladesh. “If the people were inactive in politics, the allegations made by HRW would have been in place now,” he claimed.
