Chief Coordinator and Official Spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh Mohiuddin Ahmed said in a press release issued today the people of the country are angry and saddened by the horrific events of 25-26th February at the BDR headquarters especially the pre-planned and barbaric killings of more than a hundred military officers. Brutally murdering unarmed military officers and their families is an unforgivable crime. Mutilating dead bodies of officers; torturing and killing their wives and children including pregnant women; rape and burning dead bodies –
all these inhumane acts were carried out by gang of Indian agents.
The people are aware of the Indian plot to weaken and create divisions in the defence forces of Bangladesh. India and her local agents utilized the opportunity and current favourable moment to execute their conspiracy as they did many times in the past. The events have made it clear that the so-called mutiny was part of long-term plot and was carried out by India and her agents inside and outside the government. The mass killing of so many brilliant officers would only be of benefit to the polytheist enemy and her agents. Now they are blaming the killings on intelligence failure and so-called differences between the BDR and Army.
In the guise of various demands the conspirators have managed to completely destroy the BDR chain of command and are now scheming to separate the BDR from the military’s command. This so-called demand is a threat to the security of the country. The sole beneficiary of separating the BDR from the army and creating divisions between the two forces will be the Indian enemy. This demand is unacceptable and the defence forces of the country must remain under the command of the military.
In this moment of crisis, Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh urges the people to take the following steps:
• Resist the conspiracy to destroy the army and BDR;
• Take the government to task for its inaction and mysterious role in the conspiracy; and
• Raise your voice for punishing the individuals involved in the conspiracy and the killings.
And rush forward to re-establish the Khilafah which will unite the people and strengthen the defence forces to resist all belligerent states including US, India, and Britain.
