I am writing to you as a person concerned with the political situation of one of the Commonwealth countries, Bangladesh, with whom UK’s partnership and friendship is a long-standing and time-tested one. As you are aware, Mrs. Khaleda Zia, Chairperson of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), is currently in London, UK for a personal visit. You might also be aware that her son the infamous Tareque Rahman has been absconding in London, UK evading serious criminal charges of multiple of corruption and terrorism. These two persons have been directly and indirectly responsible for a lot of destruction, carnage and unrest in Bangladesh.
In recent times, Bangladesh has seen a prolonged period of political turmoil, when BNP along with extremist ally Jamaat-E-Islami unleashed a reign of terrorism in the name of so-called “movement”. Arson, killings and vandalism were everyday occurrences. The Government has now brought the situation under control. Nonetheless, the possibility remains that any day they might embark on their signature tactics of bombing and killing, given their previous course of conduct.
For your ready reference, I have enclosed a number of key documents which will highlight three things:
1) How BNP-Jamaat has caused havoc and mayhem in Bangladesh from January to April 2015 killing and maiming hundreds in the name of their so-called “movement”;
2) What is the truth about Tareque Rahman and why the UK Government should be at the very least cautious and weary of him; and
3) How Khaleda Zia herself is trying to disrupt judicial processes in Bangladesh to cover up her corrupt activities during her stint as Prime Minister of Bangladesh from 2001-06.
As a friend and ally of Bangladesh, it is a moral responsibility of UK to play its due role in the maintenance of democracy, peace and rule of law in the former. Hence, we are requesting that you put efforts to persuade the UK Government in pressuring BNP to halt and refrain from any further destructive activities in the name of so-called “movements”, sever its ties with the extremist and war criminal infested Jamaat-E-Islami and participate in the democratic process via peaceful and legal activities.
