    Nothing surprising.

    The Khaleda Zia faction and government have released on Bangladesh a whole lot of pro Pakistani and fundamentalists so as to have her vote bank secure. It must be remembered that her husband was a Pakistani Army Major and the Pakistani Army is quite brainwashed in fundamentalism. Kiyani and the ISI are good examples. Nothing wrong actually if you see it from a Pakistani point of view. Pakistani have failed Jinnah and with the Army, especially during the Zia period converted the Army into fundamentalist zealots. This has led to the total collapse of Pakistan, because while being religious is not wrong, yet to bring religion and its rules evolved in the Middle Ages into every facet of governance including the Army, rids the Nation of reality and realpolitik, resulting in chaos. It is being experienced in Pakistan today, where Muslims are fighting Muslims and the moderates having realised the folly are hard at work to reform the historical aberrations which has indoctrinated the Pakistanis with all falsehood at their command.

    This legacy was inherited by the Pakistan Military men who came over to Bangladesh on its liberation and BNP only cemented it, wherein the Razakkars who killed the Bangladeshis during the Liberation found rebirth and churned fundamentalism to a frenzy in Bangladesh. Similar chaos as in Pakistan visited Bangladesh in the bargain, till Sheik Hasina came to power.

    Sheik Hasina and Awami League, while being no angels, were pragmatists. The military interim govt under a quasi civilian leadership realised that unbridled fundamentalism would sink a poor country like Bangladesh into further illiteracy and chaos. They commenced changing the face and ethos of Bangladesh mindset. This was spurred on by the newly elected Awami League govt. Fundamentalists like Bangla bhao were tried and some hanged. Their Supreme Court went one step higher and declared that the conversion of a Secular Bangladesh to an Islamic Republic was illegal as per the Constitution.

    It has obviously upset the fundamentalist and BNP's apple cart.

    They are hard at ensuring chaos in Bangladesh.

    Maulana Dawood

    http://www.banglacommunity.com/politics/14522.htm



    "....Also intact: the alliance between Raza and Maulana Dawood, who had accompanied the Hyders to Karachi and who, once he was installed in the official residence of the new minister, at once distinguished himself by launching a vociferous public campaign against the consumption of prawns and blue-bellied crabs, which being scavengers, were as unclean as any pig, and which, although understandably unavailable in far-off Q., were both plentiful and popular in the capital by the sea. The Maulana was deeply affronted to find these armored monsters of the deep freely available in the fish markets, and succeeded in enlisting the support of urban divines who did not know how to object. The city's fishermen found that the sales of shellfish began to drop alarmingly, and were therefore obliged to rely more than ever on the income they gained from the smuggling of contraband goods. Illicit booze and cigarettes replaced blue crabs in the holds of many dhows. No booze or cigarettes found their into the Hyder residence, however. Dawood made unheralded raids on the servant's quarters to check that God was in charge.
