Bangladesh issues war crime warrants for Islamic political party Jamaat-e-Islami members

The 1971 Bangladesh atrocities ~ pic. here is the slaughter of intellectuals and university professors. The Jamaat-e-Islami party sided with the Pakistan army against their own people ~ non-Muslims were specifically targeted in the massacres. And now they parade around the country as the ones promoting true Islam.

The Muslim Council of Britain is a UK wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, which holds sway in Pakistan where it was founded, in Southern India and in Bangladesh. They work through politicians to try and bring about an Islamic state.

Bangladesh's war crimes tribunal probing the country's bloody 1971 liberation struggle against Pakistan issued its first arrest warrants on Monday, court registrar Shahinul Islam told AFP.

The warrants target four senior leaders of the Islamic political party Jamaat-e-Islami accused of committing war crimes in 1971.

The tribunal, set up in March to try people accused of atrocities, held its first hearing on Monday.

"The International Crimes Tribunal issued arrest warrants against four Jamaat-e-Islami leaders over charges of war crimes," Islam said.

"The next hearing will be on August 2. All four suspects have already been arrested on other charges," he added. [that would be blasphemy - after members said leader was 'like' Muhammad]

Bangladesh was part of Pakistan until an independence campaign led by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the country's founding leader. The government says the war left three million people dead and is aiming to prosecute those involved.
