Bangladesh has been flooded with conspiracy theories lately. The term conspiracy (n, a secret plan by a group of people to do something illegal or harmful) is misused by all and sundry. The textile workers are protesting, bombs went off in a cinema hall:- must be international conspiracies. It seems all that can not be explained or not to be explained logically are simply branded with the term 'international conspiracy'.
The latest international conspiracy was pronounced yesterday in newspapers by the Prime Minister’s son Tareq Rahman’s friend Giasuddin Al-Mamun. We have been hearing about these since years but Sunita Paul has written about him in the Asian Tribune on June 3, 2006 in an article on Election 2007 in Bangladesh:
Gias Uddin Al-Mamun, is one of the hated names in Bangladesh, who, just because of being Tareq Rahman’s friend, became one of the richest men in the country from extreme poverty status.
In recent years, it is alleged that Mamun has also established links with Indian intelligence agency and he now plays an important role in politically guiding Tareq in taking extremely pro-Indian stand. It was already reported in Bangladesh press that, Mamun maintains close relations with several Indian beauties, who are used by this man for gaining several favors for New Delhi from influential figures in Bangladesh.
Tareq according to reports is also a very potential prey for Mamun, which this young politician either fails to realize or simply ignores, because of some unknown fact. Mamun was the main figure in smuggling a few million dollars to Malaysia accrued illegally as alleged, from number of projects, which brought extremely bad reputation for Begum Khaleda Zia and her government.
Although some of the BNP leaders are now speaking against corruption, they too know for sure that, even Begum Khaleda Zia does not have the courage to arrest Mamun and send him to prison to face series of corruption charges.
Sunita Paul writes in a follow up that in a interview in a local newspaper Mamun termed the accusations of Sunita Paul as "an international conspiracy". She comments:
The statement of Giasuddin Al-Mamun proves that, these shameless corrupts are not only desperate in continuing their wrong doings, they almost know for sure that, under the protection of Tareq Rahman, BNP government will have no reason to take any action against them.
Well Mr. Mamun, is not it the time that you explain the source of your fortune instead of the conspiracy crap? I am waiting to hear BNP's comment about this issue.
