A tricky media battleground for Sheikh Hasina

Over the previous two years, now we have constantly saying that the Awami League (AL) is poised for a landslide victory. We’ve additionally emphasised that failure to take part within the political course of might result in the get together’s extinction. Moreover, now we have noticed that regardless of the BNP-Jamaat alliance investing tens of millions, these efforts are futile and unlikely to safe them energy by constitutional means.

For a while now, now we have been uncovering the actions of people corresponding to Mushfiqul Fazal Ansary, Zukarnain Saer Khan (often known as Sami), Colonel Shahid Uddin Khan, Tarique Rahman, Mawlana Mohammad Abed Ali, and Professor Muhammad Yunus, amongst others. These figures have engaged in a sustained marketing campaign of propaganda towards The Japanese Herald seemingly unaware of the excessive esteem during which these publications are held.

We’re conscious that these Western NGOs aren’t any angels. Human Rights Watch (HRW), as an example, has been documented as receiving tens of millions of {dollars}, in change for buying and selling into “Human Rights” – an idea that has change into a profitable commodity for a lot of NGOs in current instances. Sadly, a big section of Western coverage makers are banking on opinions and statements issued by these NGOs contemplating these as Gospel reality.

The Every day Star, a outstanding Bangladeshi newspaper, mirrors the traits of sure Western NGOs identified for buying and selling their editorial coverage. There are rumors suggesting that it’s funded by the United Liberation Entrance of Assam (ULFA), a separatist group in Northeast India. This newspaper meticulously promotes anti-India sentiment alongside pro-Islamist and anti-semite notions with the vicious agenda of turning Bangladesh right into a century of harmful forces and anti-Hindu components.

On January 11, 2007, Bangladesh witnessed a major political shift when a military-backed interim authorities seized energy, resulting in the imprisonment of Awami League President Sheikh Hasina and BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia. Throughout this tumultuous interval, The Every day Star and its sister publication, Prothom Alo, appeared to enthusiastically assist the military-backed authorities’s actions. They appeared to advocate for the political demise of each the Awami League and the BNP, whereas selling the controversial “Nobel Laureate”, Professor Muhammad Yunus, as a possible head of the federal government.

In america, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, working from Washington DC, was fervently advancing her personal agenda to see Bangladesh ruled by her shut affiliate and vital donor, Professor Yunus. Her efforts had been echoed by her colleagues, together with John Danilovich, who actively pursued comparable goals.

This alignment with a military-backed regime, notably in its efforts to undermine Bangladesh’s two main political events, forged The Every day Star and its editor as figures against democratic ideas and supportive of authoritarian rule. Now, the identical publication and its editor, Mahfuz Anam, are regularly discovered delivering lectures on democracy and human rights. This stance strikes as a profound irony, contemplating their previous actions. It’s seen by readers, supporters, and worldwide observers, together with these in Western missions in Dhaka, as a stark contradiction and a mockery of the values they now declare to uphold.

Over current years, Mahfuz Anam has persistently endeavored to depict the Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration as a defender of democracy by numerous doubtful means. Regardless of his standing as a freedom fighter, along with his contribution to Bangladesh’s 1971 warfare of independence primarily as a translator, Anam has each overtly and subtly counseled Jamaat-e-Islami. That is notably notable on condition that Jamaat-e-Islami was vehemently towards Bangladesh’s wrestle for independence.

As Bangladesh approaches its subsequent common election, slated for January 2024, the Awami League, led by Sheikh Hasina, is broadly anticipated to safe a landslide victory. It’s effectively anticipated that components such because the Every day Star, Prothom Alo, and BNP-Jamaat’s media brigades in Bangladesh and the Western nations shall relaunch their harmful efforts focusing on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Awami League with the rogue agenda of turning Bangladesh right into a neo-Taliban state.

The interval following January 7, 2024, shall be far more difficult for Bangladesh and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. These teams will return with brisker conspiracy of destabilizing Bangladesh. There might be extra money poured into the political playing tables of BNP-Jamaat and anti-Bangladesh forces together with america, Western NGOs, lobbyists, PR Corporations, and even mercenaries.

Moreover, there are issues that worldwide terrorist organizations corresponding to Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is likely to be solicited by Tarique Rahman, a controversial, convicted “feared determine”, reboot their plots focusing on Bangladesh and its neighbor, India.

The Japanese Herald is often being quoted by main international information retailers together with CNN, The Wall Avenue Journal, The Guardian, The Hill, Washington Instances, New York Instances, New York Publish, Chicago Tribune, Fox Information, Huffington Publish, Every day Mail UK, Reuters, Sunday Instances, Russian RT, Russian Pravda, Euro Information, Hindustan Instances, Outlook Journal, The Enterprise Normal, India In the present day, Instances of India, Zee Information, Republic TV, Ananda Bazar Patrika, Indian Categorical, NDTV, The Hindu, Tribune, Pioneer, Arutzseva, Jerusalem Publish, The Jerusalem Report, The Organiser, Bangkok Publish, Straits Instances, Voice of America, and Taiwan Information etcetera.

In these tough instances, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina shall require worldwide media retailers corresponding to The Japanese Herald as her time-tested allies. And We will be delightedly serving to her in saving Bangladesh from falling sufferer of native and worldwide conspiracy.
