Sector Commanders’ Forum demands trial of Pakistan

The Sector Commanders’ Form (SCF) yesterday lambasted Pakistan for its interference into war crimes trial in Bangladesh and demanded trial of Pakistani authorities for committing crimes against humanity in 1971, reports BSS. “None should interfere into the trial of the war criminals, not to speak of Pakistan. Pakistani authorities have sided with the war criminals who committed genocide in Bangladesh during the war of liberation in 1971. Trial of Pakistan
should be held, if trial of the war criminals could be held in the world. Trial of 195 war criminals of Pakistan should be held in phases,” said SCF president Maj Gen (Retd) KM Shafiullah (Bir Uttam) at a press conference in the city. SCF convened the press conference at the National Press Club protesting BNP’s support for the war criminals and interference of Pakistan into the internal affairs of Bangladesh. Harun Habib, secretary general of SCF, presented the written statement at the press conference. Senior vice-president Lt Gen (Retd) Harun-ar-Rashid (Bir Protik), vice-president Md Nurul Alam, joint secretary general Prof Abul Kalam Azad Patwari and legal affairs secretary Advocate Habibur Rahman Shawkat also addressed the press conference, among others. Pointing at the international community, KM Shafiuallh said, “If war crimes trial could be held around the world, Pakistan should definitely be tried for committing genocide in
Bangladesh in 1971. We want cooperation of the international community in this regard.” The SCF chief also called upon the people of the country and the media to raise their voice demanding trial of Pakistan. Harun Habib said Pakistan government has violated all international and diplomatic norms by taking the side of two top war criminals, Salauddin Quader Chowdhury and Ali Ahsan Md Mujahid, who had been sentenced to death for committing crimes against humanity. Moreover, he said an anti-Bangladesh proposal has been passed in the National Assembly of Pakistan recently while Home Minister of Pakistan Chowdhury Nisar Ali came up with derogatory remarks against the war crimes trial in Bangladesh. In reply to a question, Harun Habib said Bangladesh should severe relations with Pakistan if it doesn’t change its attitude with regard to trial of the war criminals in the country.
The SCF leaders called for confiscating properties of the convicted war criminals for utilising those for rehabilitation of the repressed, martyred and destitute freedom fighters.
