Recent serial terrorist attacks in cinema halls
in Bangladesh and some after thoughts on Islamic terrorism
At last one month of hard
fasting in the day time (this ritual is very vulnerable because even to
see a non-muslim to eat can
cause severe trouble in a muslim majority country), and ear deafening
propaganda by all possible means how ramjan (ramadan) brings innumerable
keys (swabs) to different gates of heavens (although these are already
reserved for the muslim men in particular), was over. I was also relieved
(probably many muslims feel the same) after one month of collective
punishment of the non-muslims in
the muslim majority countries, e.g. BD (I assume the situation is same
elsewhere). Those who are acquinted with this punishment may skip this
part, but those aren´t may look at it very carefully and have a silent
thought. According to the instructions, the fasting muslims are not
allowed to wash their mouth and
not to swallow saliva after dawn during the holy month of ramjan. Very few
normal human being can sustain the foul smell emanating from the mouths of
millions of pious muslims around, other than vigorously trained dentists
in this earth. Then happened the devastation again on December 6, 2002,
this time in Mymensingh, Bangladesh (BD). It seems, the West is only
interested when the lives of their own citizens are lost (read serial
blasts in Bali, Indonesia). They hardly care about what is happening in BD
because this went almost unnoticed there, although that may be related
against which they are at war elsewhere.
Additional massive hygenic
problem arises when millions of the pious muslims spit (spiting after
chewing betel-leaf is also common in BD but not in such a massive scale)
on the floor by anybody, anytime and anywhere in the day. In the cities
and towns this is not a big problem, because majority of the peoples wear
shoes or sandals. In the villages in BD, where common peoples gather for
daily or weekly marketing, many of them lack any protection of their feets.
The situation is beyond imagination of anybody who is not used to it. This
is simply a massive public health and hygenic problem, even if it is
other human beings to this unbearable torture is encouraged by
saying that this brings additional rewards (swabs as it is called) to the
muslims, particularly if they can intentionally expose the non-muslims to
this situation. This can even be seen and be experienced in any muslim
dense area in any city in the
West. I am not sure if there is any antidote available against this
massive and continuous attack to the non-believers and to many believers
as well during ramjan (ramadan) with massive bio-emissions. My pray to
muslim intellectuals, is there any way out of this collective punishment,
and lower the pressure a little bit to the non-muslims from this massive
attack? There are many bizarre rituals practized by non-muslims too, but
this is massive and unparallel.
I came across recently a news
on how many women were murdered in Pakistan during 2002, in the name of
honour. I think exact number was 461 or close, but that was some days ago.
To include whole December,the figure may be more or less about 500. So,
500 women were murdered in Pakistan in 2002 either by their fathers, sons,
brothers, husbands or by any close relatives, in the name of honour. This
very muslim culture has been
carried by the Arabs to this area, the
total numbers of such killings in muslim countries (including Asia and
Africa) are probably in thousands every year. Some days ago three
Kashmiri women were beheaded
because they did not wear burqa (veil). How one can explain such
collective hatred to mothers by their sons, to sisters by their brothers
or to daughters by their fathers and so on? One of the terrorists of 9/11,
Mr. Atta even wrote that after his death no woman should touch his body.
Strange enough, you will find plenty of muslim women who adore terrorists
like Mr. Atta. No other religion in this earth has such derogatory view on
women. If this typical islamic view on women depends on the very liberal
marriage laws (almost everybody can marry or half marry almost everybody
with very few exceptions) and sanctioning of rape to
non-muslim women thus subjecting
the entire women folk to be despised, is a matter of scientific
study. In fact, scientific study in this respect may lead even to prevent
future possible terrorist attacks by identifying the potential terrorists
in advance by decoding the cause of genetic aberrations of these
individuals (the root cause ?), subjects for such possible study are
Well, the main issue I wanted
to talk about today was what I came across a comment on the 11th of
December, 2002, after that
serial bombing in Mymensingh cinema halls in Bangladesh. It was
a minor but significant observatioin by Dr. Ullah under the caption
" The Chief of General Staff visits a ‘Brotherly’
December 11, 2002). As Dr. Ullah commented "
The timing is very bad indeed!". It was very sharp observation and I
am very sure not too many of our Bngladeshi intellectuals are capable to
of senior military personnel to brotherly muslims countries should not be
seen suspiciously, otherwise why brothers are there ? The brothers are
meant to be by each others side in times of need and GLORY. But if the
timing was simple a co-incidence or was a well planned and co-ordinated
with the serial bombings in Mymensingh, should be
a matter of investigation by those who has the capability to do so.
Because this is very important to many peoples around the world who are
leading the war against the menace of terrorism all over world.
will try to add some more to Dr. Ullah´s observations, which came accross
in my chaotic thoughts. Some fragments of those are compiled here in a
very hapazard manner, the readers may try to put them in the right
context, a popular argument nowadays.
see, it took more than 50 years for Pakistan to achieve the glorious
position in the world community, that Pakistan is synonymous to terrorism.
Everywhere there is a terrorist attack, first thing they do is to look for
any Pakistanis around. The Pakistanis did not leave alone even the shoes
(many Pakistanis were interrogated in France after the famous shoe bomber
was caught). In boats, in ships, everywhere, they look for Pakistanis
after a terrorist attack.What an achievement by a country, and how
Bangladesh can be away from sharing this joy and glory of an unseparable
brotherly country while both of them have a common goal ? But my wild
question, did the present Bangladeshi Government (the most democratic
country in this earth!) receive mandate to subject its citizens under
similar situations to that of the Pakistani citizens? You see, after 9/11,
terrorism is no longer internal matter of any country. International
communities should interrogate AND INVESTIGATE WHAT THOSE GENTLEMEN
MILITARY PERSONNEL from BD were doing in Pakistan with their counterparts
in those days. It is noteworthy that both the militaries in Pakistan and
in Bangladesh are notorious for their mass killings of their own peoples.
more questions specifically about the military peoples of BD are
pertinent; Who are these military peoples? Who created them ? From where
they come from ? For what they are created ? Who empowered them to kill or
cripple anybody at their will ? Who pay their salary ? Who equip them ?
Who empowered them to kill the creator of the nation including almost all
his family members, and thousands of their own companions? Who empowered
them to raid the research office of the largest political party of the
country ? Did they have right to do that ? Whats are their secrecy (the
most secretive military apparatus in this earth, they even do not allow
the leader of the largest political party and the immediate past Prime
minister of the country to pass through a cantonment)? Whose interest are
they serving ? Who sanctioned and gave them mandate to collaborate with
Pakistan who just three decades ago savaged this country ? Is sovereignty
of BD threatened ? Is there any country in this earth interested to
capture BD? In case yes, by which country and what might be it´s motive ?
Can any country at these days invade and capture another country by
violence without intervention of the UN ? Or, is Bangladesh preparing to
invade another country ? In case yes, which country is that ? Is it
possible theoretically or practically to capture another country by the
army of the poorest country in the world ? Can any brutal state force go
unpunished for their massive crimes now a days? Which power behind the
creation of this so called the most patriotic force in this earth (this is
claimed by everybody in BD either in power or in opposition, which
automatically forfeit the patriotism of more than 99.99% populations of
the country) ? At the same time, instead of upgrading and modernizing
because of the growing populations of the country, who demoralized and
degraded the status and functionality of the civil security (police
force), administrative and judicial apparatus of the country during the
last three decades (just judge what they have done recently to one of the
most respectable senior citizens of the country, the past chief of BD Air
Force)? Has the poorest country of this earth right to deprive its
citizens from basic needs, at the same time spending the lion portion of
its meagre resources behind a handful of people who has so far only been
able to kill or abuse its own peoples? Is it possible to modernize the
military apparatus of the poorest country of the world as claimed very
often, at the same time keeping the whole country in the dark age? There
might be many more questions of this most secretive military apparatus in
The co-incidence of the timing of Mymensingh serial bombings and visit of
some of BD generals to Pakistan.
The pattern of terrorists attacks world over and in the three countries,
Bangladesh, India and Pakistan during the last 4-5 years.
Almost all terrorists attacks in India were followed in Pakistan by
lower scale terrorists
attacks in the past, THE TREND HAS CHANGED AFTER 9/11.
Although quite slowly, but India could find out the identity with proofs
of the perpetrators and brought them to justice with very transparent
manner for most of the crimes, MANY OF THEM ARE STILL HIDING ELSEWHERE.
After every terrorist attacks in Pakistan, the Pakistanis were blaming
Indians (as Indians do the same but difference is that the Indians provide
evidence) and even announced arrest of many RAW (Indian secret agents)
agents, but never
transparently brought the perpatrators to justice (very few recent
exceptions where interests of other foreign countries and their citizens
were attacked but the terrorists were found to be Pakistanis).
Similarly, irrespective of the Governments in power, no perpetrators of
the terrorists attacks in Bangladesh during the last several years have
ever been exposed or investigations have ever ended to their
logical ends with justice.
Thus, if the terrorist attacks are perpetrated by secret state agencies or
by terrorist outfits in
collaboration with state secret agencies, the perpetrators can never be
brought to justice nor the investigations can be finished, a generalised
conclusion may be drawn, isn´t
dangerous combination of human
qualities namely, viciousness and destructive intelligence of the
militaries of Bangladesh and Pakistan, can cause much more serious harm
than the Talibans could do. Because the Talibans lacked the later quality
which was complemented by the Pakistanis. The terrorists always are a few
steps ahead with their destructive intelligence and that has been proved
many times recently.
policy adopted by Bangladesh (following Pakistani style), that they are on
both sides at the same time, should be scrutinized very carefully by the
international communities. They declared that they are with war against
terror and at the same time they declared fotwa against Mr. Bush.
Bangladesh may not be able to construct an atom bomb or a ballistic
missile, but can be easily in this mess of
terrorism a safe haven of the terrorists and possibly hide dirty
stuffs on behalf of their mentors, at least the possibilities are there
time probably would not be different either to hide as usual, the identity
of the real perpetrators who caused the loss of so many innocent lives and
destruction in Mymensingh, BD. But worrisome is that a lot of innocent
peoples are going to be tortured, even may be crippled or killed in the
name of false investigations. As usual, Indian and their Bangladeshi
agents (as they popularly call since 1947) will be blamed
in corus at home and
abroad (you may read news that everyday
the so called Indian secret agents RAW are being arrested
everywhere in Bangladesh).
Bangladesh has nothing to hide then it should open the investigation to
International communities and ask their help to find the perpetrators.
Otherwise, how loud it might be, the blame game would be difficult to sell
to the potential buyers at this time because all the credibilities of BD
have already been lost.
So long folks this
time with a silent pray to God or to nature, to protect the innocents from
brutalities by the filthy hands of the brutes.
