It seems that Pakistan will never help Bangladesh to punish War Criminals. How they can do it? They are themselves war criminals.Dipu Moni wanted assistance regarding the trials of War Criminals and the envoy Ispahani Sa’ab said “Not at this moment…..”. Aa ha, so nicely avoiding Dipu Moni’s discussion regarding war crimes.

Pakistan will never accept Bangladesh in any way and in any form. The bilateral relation, if any, between these two countries will remain as a paper work only.

The Anti-Terror taskforce with Pakistan will be the same and remain as paper work only. It will be of no value to Bangladesh. Rather the present Govt of AL will suffer by this taskforce because if any terrorism occurs in South Asia then Pakistan will try to escape and Bangladesh will be given the responsibility to fight it. Pakistan tells any thing to any time for its benifit and safe side. As it told some days ago that Mumbai Attack was ploted in Bangladesh soil. The soil of Bangladesh is not so ‘cheap’ to plot such innocent human beings mass massacre.

No body knows in future Pakistan will send terrorists to Bangladesh to imbalance Bangladesh development. Bangladesh will be one of the developed country in South Asia and it will be the second power -Pakistan understands that and Pakistan will never be happy with the rising economy of Bangladesh.Pakistan is suffering down-economy for past decades and Pakistan already experienced that it is suffering from violent suicide bombing and blasting in own country. The terrorists made by Pakistan to harm its arch rival, those terrorist groups are making terrorism in Pakistan. The taleban occupied its Nort West and it will occupy more in coming future. This is called the punishment of the eveil work.

I do not understand why some Bangladeshi is very much interested to make bilateral relationship with Pakistan. Do they not know the inherent mentality of Pakistanis? Do they want another proof like 1971 ? Yes, they will get it in near future if Bangladeshi are not able to hang the war criminals. Why the trial responsibility shall be given to UN whose process is slow. Does Bangladesh not have any moral power and confidence to punish the war criminals.Hei Bangladesh, remember this is your last chance to take revenge of your mothers and sisters rapers, your fathers and your brothers brutal killers.Hei Bangladeshi young generation, did you forget that your fathers,uncles, brothers went to battle field to save your land, they fought with enemies wearing ‘lungi’ with empty stomach? What for they gave away their lives? Bangladeshi how many years you will take to hang the enemies of your holy mother land? How many times you will repeat that “Punishment of war criminals is an election agenda and a national demand.”
