Bangladesh to Ban Jamaat-e-Islami
Bangladesh investigators probing war crimes moved on Tuesday, March 25, to recommend banning the largest Islamic party, accusing it of genocide during 1971 against Pakistan for independence.
“We want total dissolution of the party,” the government’s chief war crimes investigator Abdul Hannan Khan told reporters, Agence France Presse (AFP).
“Jamaat and its wings took the decision to act as auxiliary forces of the Pakistani army in committing atrocities in the 1971 war. So the party cannot avoid its superior responsibilities,” Hannan said.
The government-appointed investigators submitted a detailed report to the chief prosecutor accusing the opposition Jamaat-e-Islami party of crimes against humanity.
According to Hannan, prosecutors would now proceed with charges against the party which would lead to a trial in the same tribunal.
“The whole nation has been waiting for this trial,” Hannan.
“It is the first time after the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials that a party is to be prosecuted for war crimes,” he added, comparing Jamaat to the Nazi party.
After the prosecutors’ announcement, International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) Tuesday slapped seven charges against the de-registered political party Jamaat-e-Islami for its role in the country's 1971 liberation war.
The charges include involvement in genocide and gross violation of Geneva Convention.
There was no immediate comment from Jamaat but the party has earlier accused the country’s government of organizing show trials in an effort to destroy it.
The former East Pakistan declared independence from Islamabad in December 1971 at the end of a nine-month civil war in which the government says three million people were killed.
Independent estimates put the figure much lower.
Set up by the secular government in 2010, the tribunal has already convicted more than a dozen of Jamaat’s leaders over crimes allegedly committed during Bangladesh’s war against Pakistan for independence.
All the defendants are either members of the Jamaat-e-Islami party or of the main opposition Bangladesh National Party (BNP), prompting accusations that the process is politically-driven.
The war trials have angered Islamists and the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), who call them a politically motivated bid to persecute the leadership of Jamaat.
