The murderous outrage that any Islamic supremacist could be held accountable for his own wrongdoing continues in Bangladesh. “46 killed as violence over Islamist leader’s death sentence continues in Bangladesh,” from PTI, March 2 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Dhaka: Violence continued unabated in Bangladesh on Friday as at least 46 people were killed in clashes that erupted after a top leader of fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami was handed down death penalty for “crimes against humanity” during the 1971 liberation war.
The violence broke out after 73-year-old Delwar Hossain Sayedee, vice-president of the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), was sentenced to death by International Crimes Tribunal.
At least 42 people were killed on Thursday in rioting triggered by the death sentence to Sayedee, who was found guilty of eight counts out of 20, involving rape, mass killings and atrocities during the 1971 freedom war against Pakistan.
Fresh violence erupted on Friday killing three people in Gaibandha and Chapainawabganj districts and one policeman succumbed to his wounds sustained in clashes on Thursday.
Officials said that law enforcement agencies appeared to be the prime target of the right-wing JI activists….
For the mainstream media, “right-wing” doesn’t really mean anything anymore; it is just a synonym for “evil.” Thus jihadists and Sharia supremacists are “right-wing,” as above, and so are those who oppose jihad and Sharia.
