Aung San Suu Kyi and her government are “burying their heads in the sand” over the violence in Rakhine state, Amnesty International said Tuesday, criticising Myanmar’s leader for failing to condemn the army’s alleged abuses in a televised speech.The United Nations, rights groups, and a tide of Rohingya refugees pouring into Bangladesh have accused Myanmar’s military of using bullets and arson to wage an “ethnic cleansing campaign” against the Muslim minority.In her speech Tuesday, Suu Kyi expressed sympathy for the “suffering of all people” swept up in the violence but did not address accusations of ethnic cleansing.She instead said only that anyone guilty of rights abuses would be brought to justice.“Aung San Suu Kyi today demonstrated that she and her government are still burying their heads in the sand over the horrors unfolding in Rakhine State. At times, her speech amounted to little more than a mix of untruths and victim blaming,” Amnesty said.The rights group blasted Suu Kyi for remaining “silent about the role of the security forces”, whom they have accused of being “engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing”.The watchdog also criticised Suu Kyi’s call for international observers to visit Myanmar to assess its troubles for themselves, citing her government’s blocking of a UN fact-finding mission to probe alleged army atrocities in Rakhine.“Aung San Suu Kyi’s claims that her government ‘does not fear international scrutiny’ ring hollow… If Myanmar has nothing to hide, it should allow UN investigators into the country, including Rakhine state,” Amnesty said. read more
New generations take inspiration from the glorious history of Bangladesh’s youth force in 1971 for bringing changes whenever necessary, the youth of today and of yesteryears acknowledge.Freeing the country was the main driving force, some freedom fighters recalled. Their joining the 1971 liberation war was triggered by the denial of democratic rights of people.The spirit of liberation war was reverberated during the subsequent movements, especially the one by students in 1990, to restore democracy in the country.While some see the 1990 movement as an extension of 1971, the youth today still dream of taking Bangladesh to the next stage of nation-building and development in the light of liberation war spirit. The young demonstrators of safe roads and some other recent movements have all shown their respect for the 1971 youth.Like some others of the 1971 generation, Md. Shahidul Alam, a freedom fighter from Kusthia’s Kumarkhali, had fixed his first objective to liberate the motherland from the occupation of the Pakistan military.“Of course then consciously, our collective dream was to get a democratic country where we’ll not face any disparity of any kind,” Shahidul said, lamenting that “many of our dreams of liberation war remain unfulfilled.”A college boy in 1971, Shahidul Alam was caught at the hands of razakars (auxiliary force of the Pakistani army) at the beginning of December when the nation was inching towards freedom, he told Prothom Alo.He was a freedom fighter, and so were his two other brothers. As a patron of the freedom fighters, his father was targeted by the Pakistani forces.He mentioned that at one night, the razakars held Shahidul and his father and took them to nearby riverbank in Kumarkhali and shot them. Shahidul’s father was shot dead and his body could never be recovered.Despite being bullet-hit in right arm and left leg, Shahidul managed to swim across the river.“To be honest, I didn’t have any of the high hopes in 71. My only thought was liberating our motherland so that we could breathe in a free country,” he said recently.With hindsight, he thought the Pakistani authorities committed two major mistakes by denying the Awami League power even after election victory in 1970 and by launching the crackdown on the Bangalees on 25 March 1971.Sad to see that many of the dreams of his generation not being materialised, Shahidul still leaves the responsibility to the younger generation of Bangladesh to work for fulfilling the dreams of older ones.Md Hamidur Rahman, another freedom fighter, emphasised the innocence in a fighter in joining war for the country.“Not all the freedom fighters had that deep understanding, but all had a common goal — to free the country,” said Hamidur, who was BSc student at Dhaka College and resident of Mohammadpur in 1971.“Initially we had nothing on our minds except saving our livee. Then we took training and joined the guerilla warfare.”Hamidur escaped the 25 March crackdown, left Dhaka city in early April and reached India through Nilphamari after a fateful journey of eight days.“We couldn’t even fully realise how powerful an army we’re fighting against. Only thing we had in mind was to get independence at any cost,” he pointed out.Masuk Ahmed Chowdhury of Sylhet is a bridge between generations two of his elder brothers were freedom fighters and he was a participant of the mass movement of 1990 that brought an end to the autocratic rule of HM Ershad.He thinks the dreams of 1971 might often be stumbled but the glorious history of nine months of war had always been the source of inspiration for youth.“It’s like passing the baton from one generation to another,” he said adding that the liberation war led to the student-mass upsurge of 1990 and that the target was democracy, also a key demand in 1971.“Getting a democratic country was one of the main guiding forces of our liberation war, a process which was resurfaced in 1990 after years of military rule,” Masuk expressed his views.When asked about their dreams, some youth observed that the freedom fighters had done their job.“We are at the age similar to most of freedom fighters during 1971. If they could do such an enormous task like liberating the country, why don’t we try to realise the dreams and the cause they fought for,” said Dhaka University student Ishrat Jahan, herself daughter of a freedom fighter.A truly democratic country free from corruption with equal rights for all is what she derived as her dream from the dreams of 1971.Nazmus Sakib, a student of Dhaka Residential Model School and College, said, “Freedom fighters should be given the most revered place in our history.” read more
