CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR RELIGIOUS MADNESS
At last the verdict of the first trial of killing of two judges by the Islamic fundamentalist organization Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB). The Daily Star reports:
A Barisal court yesterday sentenced to death Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) chief Abdur Rahman, his second-in-command Siddiqul Islam alias Bangla Bhai and five other militants and acquitted one in the sensational Jhalakathi judges' killing case.
The reason for the killing was stated in a leaflet in the crime scene:
"We don't want Taguti [non-Islamic] law, let Qur'anic law be introduced. Law framed by humans cannot continue and only the laws of Allah will prevail."
You can get an idea of the sanity of these people:
When the judge said the convicts will get copy of the verdict if they want to appeal, the JMB chief said, "The government had engaged us to invite the ulema community for establishing Islamic laws. But now it punished us under worldly laws. What is the punishment this government deserves?"
At the top of his voice, Rahman told the judge, "Although we asked the government for holding our trial by an Islamic jury board, it did not pay any heed. Out trial has been conducted hastily by a Taguti court. Why the government is hurrying and why it is afraid?"
Well the government had suffered much not taking prompt action against these goons and they went too far. Another conspiracy theory? Actually these people cash on terror and doubts. Is not it the same with the global religious militants? An eerie madness has infected people of many conflict regions.
Ironically these people were sentenced to death according to a law of a sovereign democratic state with Muslim majority to prove that the militant madness cannot continue. More trials are coming and we will see how many times these people are proven guilty and wrong. Let this judgement be a milestone in the fight against the growing religious extremism around the world.
And suddenly in this case I am not against capital punishment. Because, this madness has to end somewhere. The civic societies must uproot the anomaly.
