Alien invasion of Bangladesh

Over the last few years, mysterious things started happening in Bangladesh. In absence of any earthly explanation of those incidents, informed people of Bangladesh are seriously concerned that the country is at the receiving end of an alien invasion.

The description of the following events will prove, beyond an iota of doubt in anybody’s mind, that a barrage of attack has been unleashed on the people of Bangladesh.

It first started with a kidnapping by aliens. The first notable victim of such kidnap was an elected official of Dhaka city local government Mr. Chowdhury Alam. Ever since he went missing from Dhaka nearly two years ago, he has never been seen again.

A closer look revealed that Mr. Alam was not the only one who has been kidnapped by aliens. Many young men, opposition activists, students from Sylhet and other areas also went missing. Except for one, none came back. The only lucky one, who could come back alive, sans all the memory of the time of confinement, was the son of a fiery religious figure Mr. Fazlul Haque Amini. It was not clear why the aliens let Mr. 

Hasnath, son of Maulana Amini let go. However, this event may make a strong case in support of the theory that aliens worship the same God and they had some soft corner for the pastor Mr. Amini.

Very soon, along with kidnappings, killings started to take place. This time another local government level leader of Dhaka city from the opposite political spectrum got killed very mysteriously. The aliens were so intrusive and invasive that they could easily penetrate inside the sport utility vehicle (SUV) of a powerful ruling party MP within the compound of Bangladesh’s national parliament building and kill one Mr. Ibrahim in point blank range.

Not only known faces like Ibrahim or Chowdhury Alam were being killed/ kidnapped in high profile places, mysterious killing started taking place in remote corners of Bangladesh like the Bay near Borguna, Joydevpur, Bhanga region of Faridpur district, Dhaleshwari River near Munshiganj district, Ashulia/ Kuril, Pabna etc.

However one of the most daring actions of the alien commando forces was that of Sanaullah Babu killing. Sanaullah Babu was another elected local government leader in a northern district called Natore. In this attack the aliens showed Hollywood’s Terminator 2 famed ‘T – 1000 the Nanomorph’ like ability to take other peoples’ shapes and looks. During this event, which was widely recorded by multiple video cameras, the aliens took the shape and look of many ruling party members of that district. Specifically, the lead killer took the shape of a popular local Awami League leader Zakir.

Similarly got killed another local government leader, again this time from the opposite political base, Mr. Lokman Hossain.

The aliens did not stop at killing political activists and local government leaders only. An influential couple — a senior TV news editor and the other a TV journalist — was stabbed to death inside their apartment bedroom. The government could not give any earthly explanation of this gruesome murder – making it one of the highest profile cases of the series of mindless alien assassinations taking place in Bangladesh.

Within a very short interval, the aliens, without any known reason, abducted a diplomat of Saudi Arabia stationed in Dhaka, Bangladesh and killed him in a highly professional manner. This specific killing heralds a new front of attack unleashed by the aliens. The clever war planners of the alien empire knew it very well that killing of a Saudi diplomat in Bangladesh may seriously weaken the position of Bangladeshi migrant labours in Saudi Arabia and harm Bangladesh economically. So it seems the aliens are hell-bent on destroying Bangladesh economically as well.

Another recent incident involving the invading alien force in Bangladesh resembles robbery of Fort Knox. This time the aliens looted a big chunk of money (70 lakh taka to be precise) from within the car heading to the home of a powerful minister of Bangladesh. And this brazen loot took place within the highly fortified compound of a paramilitary force of Bangladesh. This specific operation suggests two things, first, the growing confidence of the aliens in hitting anyone at any place anytime in Bangladesh and, secondly, their need for cash. The money has not been located ever since.

And while this piece was being processed for press, the aliens striked again. In a blood chilling raid at the middle of busy upscale business and residential district of Dhaka, the aliens abducted a senior political figure, the organising secretary of main opposition political party and an ex-member of parliament from north eastern Sylhet district, Mr. Ilias Ali. The raid was so sophisticated and technically advanced that Mr. Ilias Ali and his driver, simply vanished. Their empty car was found abandoned roadside. Hundreds of witness living in nearby apartments, CC TV of government security agencies could not provide any clue of the abduction.

Ever since this abduction, the whole nation is living in intense fear. Everybody has the same question in mind, what will be the next mode of alien attack and who is the next victim.

Sohel Taj leaving Bangladesh Awami League

Former state minister for home Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj, who tendered his resignation in May 2009 from the post of State Minister [Junior Minister] for Home Affairs, is now actively considering resigning from Bangladesh Awami League after he relinquished his membership in Bangladesh Parliament on April 23, 2012. Abu Kawsar, additional personal assistant of Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj, submitted the resignation letter to the speaker's office around 10.25 in the morning. Md Shamim, an official of the speaker's office, received the letter from the APS.

In the letter, Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj said, "My constituency is Gazipur-4 [Kapasia]. I am submitting my resignation letter to you [speaker] under section 67 [2] of Bangladesh Constitution."

His resignation came almost three years after he resigned from the post of state minister for home. Sohel Taj told reporters that he stood down as the state minister for home affairs on May 31, 2009 so that his dignity and principles could survive intact.

Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj, the only son of country's first Prime Minister and celebrated politician, Tajuddin Ahmed resigned from the cabinet five months after the ruling Bangladesh Awami League-led grand alliance government assumed office. He sent his resignation letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on June 1, 2009 according to the Constitution. But no gazette notification was issued on his resignation. But, despite his resignation from the post of State Minister, the government continued to send monthly honorarium and other financial benefits to his account, which clearly annoyed the young leader and now former member of the parliament. So far more than TK 4 million has been sent to his account by the government. Expressing highest dissatisfaction, Sohel Taj questioned as to why such a huge amount of money was sent to his account after two and a half years and why no gazette notification on his resignation was issued. He also demanded that the government issue a gazette notification in this regard, as he thinks his dignity and image of the government as well as the prime minister have been tarnished for not doing so.

"I want to know why an embarrassing situation has been created by not issuing a gazette notification. Why mysteriously huge amount of money was deposited to my account after two and a half years when I did not get a single coin as remuneration and allowances as a lawmaker since my resignation? I want answers from the cabinet secretary," commented Sohel Taj.

Commenting on the resignation of Sohel Taj, Cabinet Secretary M Musharraf Hossain Bhuiyan said he was unable to take decision on a matter related to the rank of a state minister. "I need the prime minister's guidelines in this regard," he said, adding that it is the duty of the Cabinet Division to give salary and wages to every minister and state minister if they officially belong to the government.

He added, a state minister does not have to sign his/her cheque in receiving salary and wages as it goes automatically to their accounts. A state minister gets TK 120,800 [US$1491] per month including different allowances including house rent and fuel allowance.

Sohel Taj told reporters, there is no provision in the Constitution that resignation of a state minister would not be accepted by the prime minister. He said he has been kept as state minister on the government's list forcibly and given remuneration and allowances against the position forcibly.

"These are clear human rights violation and I'm being disregarded intentionally. I'm no longer a state minister."
He claimed his passport has not been allowed to change by the government and he has to face embarrassment every time he travels. "Enough has happened so far and it has to end now," he urged the government.

Asked why he chose to resign, he said, "I can't tell you why. All I can say is things did not work out the way I wanted. Now I don't want to embarrass anyone. I would rather wish everyone best of luck.

"I tried to work sincerely to implement our charter for change even though it required me to stay away from my family in the US. But I couldn't continue as I didn't want to compromise my principles, dignity and family values."

Sohel Taj was also under pressure from influential party leaders to serve their interests. His nerves began to fray with lobbying for posts, promotions and undue privileges for police officials getting intense.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's Adviser HT Imam said the prime minister did not accept the resignation. Instead, she asked him to go on leave for as long as it should take to resolve whatever problems he had.

Bangladesh Awami League insiders said Hasina wanted him to take leave of absence as she sought to avoid a controversy like the one during the rule of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Tajuddin was dropped from Mujib's cabinet, causing uproar. Afsar Uddin Ahmad Khan, Tajuddin's younger brother who was state minister for housing and public works in the previous Bangladesh Awami League government, too left his position after a short stint.

Commenting on the resignation of Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj from the parliament, political analysts in Dhaka said, "He inherits the honesty, sincerity and leadership qualities of his father, who also never comprised with his dignity. By leaving such position, Sohel Taj certainly proved that he is a righteous individual."

Meanwhile is it learnt from a number of sources that, Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj is actively considering resigning from Bangladesh Awami League as it is continuing repressive actions on the people as well as the political opponents, thus exposing a fascist nature at home and abroad. 

The Destiny 2000 Limited fraud

What ever is taking place in the country is either destiny or fait accompli. We are destined to be cheated by all kinds of ways and means while the government stands by and looks on until it is too late. The painful saga of the Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) continues and appear multi-level marketing firms on the scene. It looks as though here too people are bound to suffer just as millions did due to the scam of the stock market. To be fair, it looks as though there is more to Destiny than the stock exchange market. The entire process that led to the start of the operations is not only murky but also full of suspicion. From whatever one could decipher from newspaper reports, it is only the tip of the iceberg.

It is interesting to note that most questionable operations involving big money do not rule out involvement of the establishment. Only time shall tell whether the 'mistakes" made in this instant were wilful or otherwise. Like in previous instances here too a high powered committee would be set up or has already been set up to probe into the irregularities. In time to come, a report would be submitted; only some features of which will be published under pressures from the media, followed by talk-shows in some private TV channels, thereafter all will be forgotten. Nobody would ever come to know as to who did what to who? One might say that these are mere speculations and conjectures but tell us if things have been any different over the years. People should be told right now as to what would happen to their investments should the operations of Destiny come to a close or aborted.

Destiny was first unveiled in some details by a leading Bangla national daily. Apparently Destiny had been operating outside the scope of approval.

Destiny was first registered by the Department of Cooperatives as Destiny 2000 Ltd as a multi-level marketing [MLM] company. Since governmental authorities were well aware of, yet for some reasons they decided to keep quiet. As reported the outfit has already collected about Taka. Two billion [200 crore] from the public as of March 31, 2000. Besides since then a number of letters have crossed between concerned ministries and department, informing of possible irregularities committed by Destiny; yet no one agency made a move to either verify or take punitive measures. In 2004, Bangladesh Bank [BB] issued a letter to the ministry of finance, indicating Destiny's acts being fraudulent. It was followed by yet another ministry -- the ministry of home - and the Development of Cooperatives [DOC] to take necessary actions against Destiny. Nothing has happened so far. Furthermore, it is reported that no independent audit of its operations has been undertaken until now.

The illegal operation of MLM companies in Bangladesh is nothing new. In recent times, two other companies have defrauded public by billions - Unipay-2 and Jubok.

Not only money laundering but also cheating and indulging in fraudulent acts have become commonplace in Bangladesh. The three wheelers are cheating by charging astronomical fares. The retailers in the kitchen markets are asking prices for essentials as they please. The business 'syndicate' is sucking our blood day and night. The toll collectors have made the whole country their operating fields. The truth is there are many other "thieves" who are emptying our pockets in multiple ways. Like extra judicial killings, charges and fees are imposed at random outside the purview of budgetary provisions. While the MLM companies are fleecing us in a criminal way, the government is doing it in the garb of increasing internal revenue collection.

Who are the sufferers; people belonging to the middle class and the fixed income groups? 


Enforced Disappearance & Fascists in Bangladesh

Democracy in one of the South Asian nations visibly is at the most vulnerable state now, when the ruling party, Bangladesh Awami League is applying nefarious tactics of secret killings, abduction, forced disappearance and massive corruption at the blessings and patronization of the ruling elites. The case of enforced disappearance though started in Bangladesh for past three and half years since Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina formed the government, the issue has now drawn attention of the global community, when recently a former MP and prominent leader of the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, M Ilias Ali disappeared along with his chauffer, while the Prime Minister were seen making jokes centering this issue of grave concern. Sheikh Hasina and her government has some how become comfortably confident of being assured by New Delhi on remaining in power at least up to 2019, which is again a substantial period for the ruling party and its elites in establishing much stronger grip over country’s civil and military administration, as well as the judiciary, thus bringing Bangladesh under one-party rule, which was the brain-child of Hasina’s father Sheikh Mujibur Rehman.

Sheikh Mujibur Rehman, who is the founding-father of Bangladesh, introduced the one-party rule system named BKSAL, which he conceived from former Soviet Union. A lot of Mujib followers and sycophants were seen worshipping the new-god in Bangladeshi political sky, thus attempting of portray an image of Mujibur Rehman as the political prophet of Bengal. Right after the independence of the country, Mujib though made numerous pledges of ensuring rights of the citizen and freedom of press and expression, on formation of his one-party rule, the first offensive came on country’s media, thus banning all the newspapers but two thus introducing repressive laws such as Special Powers Act, pushing opposition activists inside prison while encouraging forced disappearance and secret killings. At least ten to twelve thousand opposition activists were brutally murdered by the private militia of Mujib, just within two years. Country’s image was greatly tarnished internationally, while fellow-members of the Mujib cabinet as well as his family and friends got completely indulged into huge corruption, which made Bangladesh as “bottomless basket case”, with acute famine in 1974 and series of agonies and sufferings of the masses.

The era of Sheikh Mujibur Rehman came to a tragic end, when he was assassinated along with members of his family on 15th August 1975 in a military coup. At such tragic end of the founding father of the nation, no one – not even the members and activists of ruling Awami League felt sorry or left tears, while majority of the people were expressing joyful remarks. Such fates to Awami League were the result of its experiment of imposing Stalinist prototype dictatorial administration on the people, thus snatching their minimum rights. Following the assassination of Mujibur Rehman, the very existence of Awami League became totally uncertain, while many of the Mujib colleagues happily joined the successive government thus branding Mujib as the “Pharaoh” of Bengal. One of Mujibur Rehman’s closest aides and cabinet colleagues, Abdul Malek Ukil, when asked in London to comment on the assassination of the founding father of the country said, “The nation has got rid of the pharaoh! Mujib wanted to establish dynastic rule in Bangladesh to let him and his ancestors remain in power for ever. But such wrongdoings have been rightly punished by the divine forces.”

After 20 years of the tragic assassination of the founding father, the people of Bangladesh voted Mujib’s eldest daughter Sheikh Hasina into power in 1996 and her government had to finally face a huge defeat just after five years, simply because of its massive corruption, nepotism, state-patronized crime and bad governance. Prior to this election, Sheikh Hasina sought apology to the people for all wrong-doings of her father and promised good governance if voted into power. During the election campaign, she even put on Islamic hijab (veil) surely with the idea of getting sympathy from the majority of the Muslim voters in the country. Anyway her strategy clicked and her party won the election, though it faced a huge defeat just in five years, simply because of extreme misrule and bad governance.

In 2008 again, Sheikh Hasina made fresh pledges to the people with renewed apology for the “mistakes”during her during of 1996-2001, and promised “a better Bangladesh” with the implementation of her Vision 2021 and establishment of “Digital Bangladesh”. It was already known in the political and media circles in India that, the pre-election propaganda strategy and the election manifesto of Awami League were drafted by a team of seasoned politicians and media personnel from India, while Dr. Manmohan Singh and Mr. Pranab Mukherjee contributed in the election manifesto of Bangladesh Awami League by incorporating their important inputs. The economic plans of the manifesto were consulted with famous economists, which include Nobel laureate Amartya Sen and Dr. Mohammed Yunus, while defense policies were drafted by New Delhi’s South-Block. The initial concept of Indian policymakers extreme involvement behind Awami League election manifesto as well as campaign strategy were aimed at getting series of issues and treaties signed and decided by the Bangladeshi government under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina in order to ensure India’s un-protested supremacy over Bangladesh forever. When New Delhi policymakers sensed the voters in Bangladesh were still in confusion in putting their mandate in favor of Awami League, Dr. Manmohan Singh and some key figures in Indian politics sought help from the Western governments in influencing the caretaker government in Bangladesh in extending total support towards Awami League and ensure its victory. Though the general election took place in December-2008, Sheikh Hasina’s special envoys secretly visited India in November-2008 to finalize the list of the next cabinet. New Delhi was already given assurance by the Bangladeshi caretaker government of letting Awami League win the election under “any circumstance”.

On 17thNovember 2008, RAW’s deputy assistant director Manoj Pillai in a “Top Secret” message (Ref No: Makr.sabd.poll08.4716) addressed to the its Chief wrote, “A senior officer of DGFI-Bangladesh has informed over phone at 02:40pm that Bangladesh Nationalist Party is still undecided on joining in the election run, though some of the mid-level policymakers of that party are pursuing Mrs. Khaleda Zia in getting her consent in joining the poll. The officer also informed that it has successfully convinced the top-policymakers of Jamat-e-Islami in putting pressure on Bangladesh Nationalist Party in joining the election run. He emphasized on putting our contacts within Bangladesh Nationalist Party and Jamat-e-Islami fully activated in continuing strong persuasion and pressure on Mrs. Zia, as it is feared that she might have been adversely influenced by the Chinese block and Saudi block from in refraining from joining the election. Without participation of BNP, the election will not get international acceptance. For the sake of our national interest, necessary steps should be initiated urgently on this matter.”

From the content of the above letter, it is clear that Indian government and its agencies were desperately working in favor of holding the election in 2009, as it was confident about Awami League’s victory.

As expected, Awami League got a huge victory in the election and since it formed government in January-2009, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her cabinet are seen totally committed in implementing all of its commitments and pledges, made to India, without arguing or questioning its impacts on Bangladesh or its people. This is for the first time; New Delhi has been very successful in putting a party in power, which never betrayed with Indian policymakers, even after facing substantial protests domestically for its expressive and exposed inclination towards New Delhi. On the other hand, for the people of Bangladesh, this is possibly one of their worst-ever period of national catastrophe of letting Awami League still being in power for another one plus year. No doubt the ruling party and its elites are fully aware of people’s grievance and anger at it due to its pro-India policy, which directly goes against the interest of Bangladesh. Sensing this as well the possible revolt of the people either before the election or during the election, thus throwing Awami League once again into trash, the ruling party is carrying out its well-planned agenda of political secret killings as well as forced disappearances, with the goal of eliminating most of the potential political opponents as well as leaders of the opposition parties, especially BNP and Jamaat. The case of forced disappearance became prominent when BNP leader and ex Member of Parliament M Ilias Ali went into missing along with his chauffer few days back. As he hails from Bangladesh’s eastern province named Sylhet, hundreds and thousands of Sylhetis in London have started protesting this particular incident, while they also are putting pressure on the British government in asking Bangladesh in releasing M Ilias Ali, while the British media may also start writing on this issue soon. This particular case of forced disappearance of M Ilias Ali will surely cause maximum damage to the remaining image of the ruling party in Bangladesh and it may even erect the road to mass revolt or even freezing of the democracy.

While Bangladeshi Sylheti community in London are very active and protesting the forced disappearance of M Ilias Ali, few pro-Awami League palls such as write Abdul Gaffar Chowdhury or some of the business associates of Sheikh Rehana, including retired Maj. Gen. Tarique Ahmed Siddique, Lt. Gen. Harun Ar Rashid and Mohd. Rafiqul Amin is trying to organize people to counter the protests of angered Sylhetis in London and the United Kingdom. Lt. Gen. Harun Ar Rashid and Mohd. Rafiqul Amin run multi-million GBP businesses in United Kingdom while he also has forcefully occupied a number of businesses in Bangladesh, with the direct assistance of Maj. Gen. Tarique Ahmed Siddique and his sister-in-law Sheikh Rehana (the younger sister of Bangladeshi PM). According to Times of Assam, this racket has smuggled millions of GBP to United Kingdom and turned into multi-millionaires from being a small fries in Bangladeshi society, just within months of Awami League’s forming the government. Sheikh Rehana and Maj. Gen. Tarique Ahmed Siddique are having direct hands behind Lt. Gen. Harun Ar Rashid and Mohd. Rafiqul Amin in series of illegal activities including land grabbing, extortion, blackmailing and looting of public wealth. It is rumored in Dhaka that Maj. Gen. Tarique Ahmed Siddique is controlling the forces intelligence as well as National Security Intelligence, while he also uses Rapid Action Battalion for the sake of his personal interests.

It said the man behind secret killings and forced disappearances is Maj. Gen. Tarique Ahmed Siddique, who is directly commanding DGFI and RAB in executing the murder and abduction plans of Awami League. Many term Maj. Gen. Tarique Ahmed Siddique as the “General of the fascists in Bangladesh”.
