Shajahan: Jamaat-BNP violence will be resisted
Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan has warned that any attack sponsored by the BNP-Jamaat similar to the 2014 post-election unrest would be firmly resisted. Shajahan denounced the political unrest created in the wake of the January 5 election and said such anarchy would not be allowed to happen again. He claimed that the atrocities committed by the BNP and its key ally Jamaat-e-Islami in 2013-2015 were tantamount to war crimes. Attendees at the press conference demanded justice for the arson attacks and murders carried out during that time in the name of anti-government movement. Shajahan also announced that the next election slated for 2019 would be carried out as per the constitution.

National Genocide Day to be proposed

Shajahan also said that they were working on a proposal to announce March 25 the National Genocide Day. The day is significant because of the indiscriminate massacre of Bangalis at the hands of the Pakistani occupation forces on the inauspicious night in 1971. The proposal is likely to be placed in the next session of parliament. “It is another step in the ongoing movement to ensure justice for war crimes,” the minister added.

More war crimes allegations

Shajahan, who heads a platform of war crimes trial campaigners – Antarjatik Juddhaparadh Ganabichar Andolan, said that the organisation had prepared a report based on investigation into fresh war crimes allegations coming from different areas of the country. The report would be released on November 26 and submitted to the investigation agency of the International Crimes Tribunal in time, the minister added.
