Reform Bangladesh Army

Reform is the demand of this time. Present government started reform and it has touched almost every political and professional institutions except fundamentalist and financially the richest political party (money source lines are largely dubious and organizations like Islamic Bank) ‘Jamaat-E-Islami’ and the most powerful muscle flexing state institution Bangladesh Army. After it’s latest shameful step of silencing it’s eternal enemy number one; democratic, secular political institution Awami League, any sensible Bangalee will now look over the shoulder to see the sordid past of Bangladesh Army. It is true this army was created through our glorious liberation war, but soon it changed it’s spirit and identity and raced with time to be a clone of that of Pakistan. Naturally they have inherited their lust for power and enmity with democracy from their patriarch; Pakistan Army.

Bangladesh Army’s latest power grabbing venture started immediate after the fall of their predecessor General Ershad. They backed up their brain child BNP with Army intelligence, logistics and even Pakistan Army intelligence to whip up politics of confrontation and corruption. During 2001 – 2006 rule of BNP, climax was successfully attained with the direct help of DGFI to turn BNP as a corrupt, fundamentalist, fascist party. Riding on the over-whelming support of the public for anti-corruption drive and in the name of restoring democracy, the army soon bracketed total politics as a corrupt, dysfunctional institution of feuding elements. And who became the first scapegoat of the military exorcist; it is none other than Awami League, the oldest secular, democratic and progressive political institution of the country. In the meantime, coercing politicians with threat of imprisonment, military, like any other past military governments could buy the loyalty of few most corrupt politicians of both BNP and Awami League. The Army, in the name of political reform, has unleashed these cannibals and Mirzafars to gulp down Awami League and BNP. Why destruction of BNP is needed? Usefulness of BNP as a tool with it’s pro-Pakistan, pro-Islamic philosophy is over. Now brand new formation of political fa├žade is required with eclectic political corrupts and with the varnish of Liberation war and Bangabandhu. What a surreptitious but ingenious design to befool public. Heads of corrupt politicians are purchasable commodity but not public perception. Public now realises the design and objective of so called anti corruption and reform campaign of military and the constitutionally illegal interim government (Hatchery of Conspiracy). Now we, the public demand reform of Bangladesh Army on following points –

- Provision must be added to the constitution to declare any direct or indirect meddling of Bangladesh Army in politics as an act of high treason.
- Any individual, serving in the military discipline, involves himself in politics, or hinders democratic process in any means must be tried in open civil court and provision of steep punishment must be sanctioned for this kind of felony.
- Army must be restructured to align itself with the political and cultural history of Bangladesh and Bangalee, and also to train to serve under the command of democratic government.

We, all the Bangalees, must act now globally for the following demands:
- Release Sheikh Hasina
- Withdraw Emergency Act
- The Power and size of Bangladesh Army must be clipped constitutionally
- Trial of Present Army Hierarchy for meddling in national politics, impeding democracy and conspiracy against distinguished politicians and political institutions.
- No election under emergency and under the supervision of present Illegal Interim Government and their appointed EC
- The Chief of Anti Corruption is an agent of Pakistan and Jammat. General Mashoud must go.

To press home these legitimate demands;
- all the Bangalees should immediately stop remittiance to Bangladesh
- all Bangalees should write to UN Secretary General to cancel all peace mission assignment of Bangladesh Army for their alleged meddling into public politics to liquidate democratic process and institutions

All the Banglalees all over the world unite and launch from a untied platform intense campaign to dislodge this Army Fakruddin clique and to restore democracy in Bangladesh.

I would like to focus on a very ominous development in Bangladesh; third wonder that is slowly but steadily advancing in the political landscape of Bangladesh. The Chief of Army, once declared celibacy from politics, is now regularly delivering political sermons gracing the centre stage of specially arranged seminars. Security Council (de facto Martial Law) is days away from commissioning. EC has delivered election,08 roadmap which appears to be pitching for a designed election under the alert eyes of the powerfuls and very much under the shackle of emergency rule. What a fest of Democracy! The reactions of Boot-licker reformists and battered political parties give a clear picture about this grand design. Mark it, in Beijing and Moscow, wow! it is now wonderful summer bloom. So our Marxists and Leninists are on vacation and naturally all quiet in that front of vanguards and Bolsheviks. Therefore please be prepared for at least another decade of living and enjoying fiesta of Garrison Democracy. Inshalah it will be a carbon copy of our brother Musharraf's democracy in Pakistan.

After Zia and Ershad now the Third Reign of another left-right General for at least a decade. Oh Bangalee! all your hopes and dreams are abandoning you again!!!
