KhanAshrafuzzaman Khan, a former president and secretary-general of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), will be charged with war crimes, according to Mohammad Abdul Hannan Khan, coordinator of the investigation agency of the Bangladeshs International Crimes Tribunal.
Khan revealed the plans for the indictment during a press briefing October 9. Khan will be charged by Bangladeshs International Crimes Tribunal for his involvement in the torture and execution of 18 political opponents in 1971 during Bangladeshs fight for independence from Pakistan.
Khans associate, Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin, a prominent Muslim activist in the United Kingdom, will also be charged for the same crime, as also reported in Britains Daily Mail. (Shockingly, Mueen-Uddin is the director of Britains National Health Services Muslim Spiritual Care Provision.)
The investigation was carried out by the tribunal carried over the course of a year. The prosecution wing of the tribunal says that formal charges will be brought in the next few days, according to a senior official at the tribunal. Investigators say that although dozens of people were killed in the incident, there are only 18 murders that can be confirmed by eye witnesses.
Sanaul Huq, the Inspector-General of Bangladesh's national police force, who is coordinating the tribunals investigation said the the victims were chosen because they were prominent members of society doctors, university professors and journalists. Witnesses to the incident reported that before the executions were carried out, the victims were horrifically tortured.
Speaking to the Mail, Huq said, "They abducted an eye doctor, and then gouged his eyes out before killing him and dumping his body. They abducted a cardiologist and cut out his heart before killing him and dumping his body. They kidnapped a woman journalist, and cut her breasts off before killing her. Her decomposing body was later found with her breasts cut off. These victims were chosen because they were leading figures in the independence movement."
Huq said that all means would be used to bring the accused back to Bangladesh to face the charges, including use of Interpol, diplomatic and legal methods.
ROP, right? And why else do you think this Animal is hanging around with a Muslim torturer?
I barely know everyone in the US and hardly anyone in Asia, Africa and the Subcontinents...although I'm working on that.
