The kangaroo court of the bangladesh war crimes trials is showing its unjust side these days. The defence team of one of the Jamaat leaders accused, ex-MP Delwar Hossain Sayeedi, didn't even get copies of the prosecuting witness statements made against him.
Its like trial by delinquent children.
I wish these so-called justice makers would pull their socks up and that the accused would say his piece clearly for us all to hear. I know that he and the rest of his party see this all as a charade and believe noone will give their side of the story a fair hearing, as they have made their minds up through years of awami brainwash, epistemicide and bad jamati leadership on the issue.
A little epistemic disobedience would definately undermine this show trial.
I recall how whenever Janab Sayedee would come to the uk to talk to deshi muslims, the 1971 industrialists would go ape shit. He seems like powerful speaker, not my style but can move people.
I think he should have a go and tell it how he sees it, answering the specific accusations and testinomies ranged at him. It would be cathartic. However my inkling is that the jamaat block are playing defence.
In the past he's challenged his accusers to prove their allegations. its an open challenge issues through all sorts of media. The continual and unrelenting demonisation from the 1971 industry really gets on his wick, as evident in this clip.
But now the accusations are officialised and detailed around his alleged actions in Pirojpur Sadar and Zia Nagar upazila. Its the whole pre-Sarmila Bose kitchen sink actually, 30 000 people reported to have been killed and buried in mass graves, looting, torture, arson, genocide and rape.
A fair trial seems beyound the non governing organisation which is the GoB.
