BDR Massacre: Will the mystery be over? May 19, 2009

Posted by bdoza in BANGLADESH, BDR mutiny, GOVERNANCE.

It is about three months that the BDR headquarter at Pilkhana was blood stained with the brutal killing of more than 50 army officers. Three different inquiry committees were entitled to find out the details of the event and identifying the underlying cause. The report from the committees will be submitted officially to the concerned authorities within short time.

Col(Rt) Faruk, Minister for Commerce and Co-ordinator for committees said that Government is taking steps to reorganise the BDR. In this regard, they are taking steps to change the name and the dress of BDR though many opine that these steps will rather demotivated the BDR more.

There are also criticism against the Government for extra-Judaical death of the BDR Jowans and arresting the BDR in hundreds from different camps of the country.

Already it is alleged that committees are taking too much time to submit the reports. Part of the report are also published in some newspapers. AShraful Islam, Minister for LGRD  refuted the news and said that it is not right to disclose the report when it is not yet officially published.

Ashraful Islam also said that some quarter tried to divert the BDR event in a different direction. Govt is watching these people. They will remain under watch until the whole situation is cleared.

People are eagerly waiting to know the contents of the report of the committees and to be sure about the background and the patrons of the event.

But people are not sure whether the mystery of the massacre will be over.

The ordinary citizen hopes that the government will come up with definite conclusion.

Well, the mystery remains unsolved and seemingly there is a chance that it will remain so for a quite very long time. Bangladesh lost some of its best people during the so called BDR ‘rebellion’. This was not a rebellion- it was a pre-planned massacre and a cooked up conspiracy against the country. May be there is some involvement of India and also the government in this massacre—– otherwise why do not they publish a clear investigation report?
Recently, news came out on a Bangladeshi national daily newspaper that DAD Tauhid, who is being questioned, told the investigators that Awami League MP Fazle Noor Taposh was present at the meeting where the BDR jawans planned to kill the army officers.
As general people, whom should we believe? Will the people of Bangladesh ever see the culprits behind this incident put to justice? I think that is only a dream that the Bangladeshi people can dream of. The investigation will be covered up by false political propaganda. Lets pray that it will not!

Hmmm, that was interesting. Looks like somethings will always remain mystery.

I myself has been trying to solve the mystery of the legend that forces you to have “earn it before

having it”, for a while now. Could not understand much though.

Let me know in case you get to understand the mystery of the Old Hound and the Legend

By the way, good writing style. I’d love to read more on similar topics
