    Bangladesh asks Pakistan to apologize for war

    Jamaat-e-Islami leader Delwar Hossain Sayedee (C) is escorted by security personnel as he emerges from the Bangladesh International Crimes Tribunal in Dhaka on November 20, 2011. A special court on November 20 opened trial for Bangladesh's first war crime suspect charged with atrocities such as genocide during the country's 1971 war of independence against Pakistan


    DHAKA: A senior Bangladeshi official on Sunday urged Pakistan to formally apologize for alleged atrocities and acts of genocide committed by the Pakistani military during the independence war in 1971.

    Foreign Affairs Minister Dipu Moni made the demand in a meeting with Pakistan’s new envoy to Bangladesh, a statement released by the ministry said.

    Aided by India, Bangladesh, then the eastern wing of Pakistan, won its independence in 1971 after a nine-month war.

    Bangladesh says Pakistani soldiers, aided by local collaborators, killed an estimated 3 million people, raped about 200,000 women and forced millions to flee their homes. Pakistan has disputed the allegations.

    According to the statement, Moni ”sought Pakistan’s understanding and recognition of Bangladesh’s position on resolving the outstanding issues including an expression of formal apology from Pakistan for the genocide and atrocities committed by the Pakistani military in 1971.”

    It said Moni also wanted to settle the issues of division of assets and war reparations.

    Moni said that resolving these long-standing issues was important to maintaining good relations with Pakistan.

    ”Early resolution of the outstanding issues would enable the existing friendly relations between Bangladesh and Pakistan to make a great leap forward and create a wider space for cooperation,” the statement quoted Moni as saying.

    The government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has initiated a move to try Bangladeshi collaborators who allegedly helped the Pakistani military. A special tribunal has been formed to conduct the trials.

    Five top leaders of Bangladesh’s largest Islamic party, Jamaat-e-Islami, are currently behind bars, pending trial for their alleged role as collaborators.

    Two other men from the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, which is led by former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia, are in jail on similar charges. All of them have denied the allegations.

    Jamaat-e-Islami openly campaigned against breaking away from Pakistan during the 1971 war. The international community has called on the government to ensure that the tribunal is free and impartial.

    New York-based Human Rights Watch has praised the government for establishing the tribunal, but called for changes, including allowing the accused to question its impartiality, which current law prohibits.

    What did Bangladeshis do to Pakis that deserves an "apology"? Cooperating with evil Hindoos against the genocidal Paki army?

    Chances of Pakistan sending a man on the moon is more than their Generals saying sorry.

    Generals should be taken to the hauge and tried for crimes against humanity.

    Apologise for 1971 war crimes, Bangladesh tells Pakistan

    Apologise for 1971 war crimes, Bangladesh tells Pakistan | TwoCircles.net

    By IANS,

    Dhaka : Bangladesh has sought an apology from Pakistan for war crimes committed during the 1971 war of liberation.

    Foreign Minister Dipu Moni sought the formal apology from Islamabad for atrocities committed by the Pakistani military in Bangladesh in 1971, reported Daily Star.

    'War crimes' is the expression used to describe offences ranging from rape, loot, arson and killing of unarmed civilians by Islamist militia -- Al Badr, Al Shams and Razakars -- who guided Pakistani soldiers to homes of political workers, artists, writers and Hindus.

    Bangladesh, formerly east Pakistan, was created after the Liberation War in December 1971.

    "An early resolution of the outstanding issues will enable the existing friendly relations between Bangladesh and Pakistan to make a great leap forward and create a wider space for cooperation," Dipu Moni was quoted as telling Afrasiab Mehdi Hashmi, the new Pakistani envoy to Bangladesh.

    Hashmi made his first call on the foreign minister at her office Sunday afternoon.

    On duty-waiver for Pakistani products into EU following floods in that country, Dipu Moni said Bangladesh was sympathetic toward the flood victims of Pakistan, but giving trade preference to a country solely on account of natural disasters was unprecedented.

    Bangladesh and Pakistan have stressed for an early convening of the Joint Economic Commission (JEC) meeting.
