Conspirators need to flip Bangladesh right into a failed state

A conglomerate of culprits comprising pro-Islamist Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration (BNP), pro-jihadist Jamaat-e-Islami, BNP’s convicted fugitive mini-boss Tarique Rahman and his lap-dogs resembling Tasneem Khalil, Zulkarnain Saer Sami alias Chhintaikari Sami (snatcher Sami), Mushfiqul Fazal Ansarey and plenty of BNP-Jamaat lobbyists in the UK and the US are persevering with infamous conspiracy with the goal of turning Bangladesh right into a failed state. This conglomerate of culprits is working vile propaganda in opposition to Bangladesh, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, members of the Bangabandhu household, the ruling Awami League, and regulation enforcement and intelligence companies in Bangladesh whereas very sadly such propaganda and infamous lobbyist bids are left un-countered even if Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has repeatedly requested for confronting and countering anti-Bangladesh propaganda particularly in addition to evil lobbyist actions of BNP, Jamaat and their cronies.

On this article, I shall debunk a number of the infamous propaganda unfold by the enemies of Bangladesh, though there’s purpose to be pessimistic that the state equipment would merely ignore these factors and will not take speedy steps in additional spreading such exposures.

BNP-Jamaat allegations of huge corruption

For the previous a number of years, Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration, Jamaat-e-Islami, and their cohorts have been repeatedly stating that corruption has crossed the “all-time file” in Bangladesh. They’re elevating this situation via lobbyists within the US and Britain and at any time when BNP-Jamaat leaders are assembly members of the diplomatic missions in Dhaka, regardless of the very fact of actuality being simply the alternative.

Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration shaped a coalition authorities with war-criminal Jamaat-e-Islami in 2001 and through their tenure, Bangladesh had topped Transparency Worldwide’s most-corrupt nations for 3 consecutive occasions. In the course of the 2001-2006 rule of the BNP-Jamaat authorities, corruption was rampant whereas then Prime Minister Khaleda Zia and her notorious sons – Tarique Rahman and Arafat Rahman Koko together with different members of Khaleda Zia’s household have been indulged in huge corruption, loot of public wealth and smuggling of hundreds of thousands of {dollars} from Bangladesh to international nations. Tarique Rahman’s enterprise accomplice and “particular buddy” Giasuddin Mamun had instructed interrogators that Tarique was taking a ten p.c “kickback” from every of the international purchases and improvement tasks.

In the course of the 2001-2005 rule of Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration (BNP) and its coalition accomplice Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI), then Prime Minister Khaleda Zia’s son Tarique Rahman was generally known as “Mr. 10 p.c”, as he was demanding a ten p.c bribe on each improvement tasks and international purchases. Whereas his enterprise accomplice and “particular buddy” Giasuddin Mamun was assigned to gather ten p.c from every of the event tasks and international purchases within the nation, Tarique succeeded in utilizing her mom, Khaleda Zia in suggesting all ministers to “look into” her son’s “enterprise pursuits”. Numerous international traders had deserted their plan of investing in Bangladesh as a result of Tarique Rahman and his notorious Hawa Bhaban gang’s unjust demand of paying ten p.c of the proposed funding quantity as a “fee” to the son of Prime Minister Khaleda Zia.

Based on a reputable supply, throughout the 2001-2005 interval, Tarique and Mamun had positioned their very own man on the Bangladesh Chemical Industries Company (BCIC) for having fun with a monopoly in supplying urea fertilizer. Though at the moment worldwide market worth of urea was lower than US$300 per ton, Tarique Rahman’s man was promoting it at a charge ranging between US$900-1,400 per ton whereas the remaining stability was secretly transferred into international financial institution accounts of Tarique Rahman and Giasuddin Mamun. Every year, this vicious circle was cashing a whole lot of hundreds of thousands of {dollars} by promoting 1.20-1.50 million tons of urea to BCCI, which finally resulted in an enormous worth of fertilizer and price the nation badly. This additionally disrupted the nation’s agricultural manufacturing.

Tarique Rahman and his syndicate additionally made a whole lot of hundreds of thousands of {dollars} by promoting rice, sugar, salt, lentils, and different necessities to the Bangladesh authorities, Buying and selling Company of Bangladesh (TCB), Ministry of Meals, and personal customers at an exorbitant worth. Tarique and his notorious Hawa Bhaban have been additionally behind the sugar scandal throughout BNP-Jamaat rule, the place he and his cohorts made huge quantities of money by instantly exerting affect. Additionally they have been behind the import of melamine-mixed child meals from China, which they bought within the native market thus pushing the lives of a whole lot of hundreds of kids in the direction of excessive well being hazards.

It’s additional discovered that, throughout BNP-Jamaat rule, Tarique Rahman and his syndicate have been importing contaminated powdered milk from East European nations, whereas such an merchandise was unfit for human consumption as milk powder produced by these East European nations have been severely contaminated by the Chornobyl nuclear catastrophe.

In the course of the rule of the BNP-Jamaat coalition authorities, Indian conglomerate Tata, in 2005, canceled a US$ 3 billion deal after Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration (BNP) chief Tarique Rahman positioned a bribery demand on the Indian firm.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s ICT Advisor Sajeeb Wazed Pleasure in a put up from his verified account on Fb in March 2022 mentioned that the unchecked greed of BNP appearing chairman Tarique Rahman and his buddy Giasuddin Mamun took a toll on the funding sector of Bangladesh, inflicting many international traders to show their again.

“Why did Tata pull out of a thousand-crore greenback funding plan on the final second? How have been the youths of Bangladesh disadvantaged of their employment alternatives?” wrote Sajeeb Wazed Pleasure.

titled, “Topic – Tata’s Funding”, additionally integrated an audio-visual detailing why Tata pulled out, on the eleventh hour, of the funding plan they have been so enthusiastic about.

“It was Could 8, 2005. Former Power Advisor Mahmudur Rahman introduced that Tata was set to take a position three billion {dollars} in Bangladesh, which might defy all earlier international funding marks within the nation. Based on the plan, they might put money into the fertilizer and metal manufacturing unit sectors in return for an undisrupted gasoline provide to Tata for 25 years. Tata additionally supplied 10 p.c fairness to Bangladesh”, mentioned .

Attending a gathering with the Tata board of administrators in India, Tarique Rahman, flanked by his buddy Giasuddin Mamun and Silver Selim, needed to speak to Tata privately. As different administrators left, Giasuddin Mamun cleared his throat, demanding a ten p.c fee, a proposal rejected outright by the billionaire philanthropist. Nonetheless, Tarique stubbornly dwelled on his demand. At one level, Tata inquired in regards to the recipient’s checking account, which Giasuddin Mamun mentioned was in Dubai, Singapore, and Malaysia. Mamun demanded BDT 2 billion within the first section and BDT 1 billion throughout the election, the report added.

These are a number of the the reason why Bangladesh had topped Transparency Worldwide’s record of most-corrupt nations for 3 consecutive occasions. Ought to there be related corruption throughout the 2009-2022 Awami League tenure, Bangladesh would have once more topped the record of Transparency Worldwide. Has it occurred? No! Nonetheless, BNP and its cohorts are elevating false allegations of rampant corruption throughout Awami League’s rule.

Unfavourable propaganda centering anti-terrorism and anti-militancy drives

Ever since Awami League got here to energy in 2009 beneath the magnanimous management of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, BNP and its cohorts are repeatedly spreading heinous propaganda by labeling the federal government’s ongoing drives in opposition to terrorism and militancy as “human rights violation”. They’ve been circulating propaganda supplies amongst key policymakers within the Western capitals, together with Washington bringing outrageously false allegations in opposition to Bangladesh’s regulation enforcement companies, particularly the Fast Motion Battalion (RAB), even if this elite drive of Bangladesh Police has performed an impressive position in containing militancy and violent extremism within the nation, the place a number of officers of RAB needed to sacrifice their lives. In my view, Western policymakers, significantly the US authorities are both grossly misled or willingly cooperating with BNP-Jamaat’s grotesque propaganda in opposition to the Bangladesh authorities’s anti-terrorism and anti-militancy drives.

Just lately, being completely misled by BNP-Jamaat’s propaganda US ambassador to Bangladesh Peter D. Haas went to attend a gathering organized by the members of the family of an armed cadre of Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration and had willingly or unwillingly helped these anti-Bangladesh conspirators in giving delivery to false propaganda. Feeling inspired by the US ambassador’s partisan conduct, the sister of BNP’s armed cadre got here up with a brand new allegation stating “a police workforce tried to enter the constructing” resided by Sanjida Islam Tulee. It’s well-anticipated though allegations introduced by Sanjida Islam Tulee are outrageously false, anti-government propagandists in addition to Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration will attempt to mislead folks, together with members of the diplomatic missions in Bangladesh with one other fabricated story.

Sheikh Hasina warns folks of anti-Bangladesh conspirators

Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina on December 25, 2022, mentioned that the anti-liberation forces and the killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman are all the time lively of their efforts to show Bangladesh right into a failed state.

However, when Awami League got here to energy, then Monga (famine-like scenario) and famine went away from the nation. “Right this moment, we’ve achieved self-sufficiency in meals”, she mentioned.

She mentioned Awami League is a corporation that has been shaped by the hands of Father of the Nation and this group had been born via actions of creating the rights of the folks of Bangladesh.

Speaking in regards to the world financial downturn, she mentioned her authorities is making an attempt its finest to proceed protecting the financial system vibrant and exercising austerity in endeavor and implementing improvement tasks.
