Mash posts an analytical piece on Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury. He draws an interesting diagram of his friends who have put pressure on Bangladesh Government to clear the cases against him.
Also check the dialogs (1, 2) between Mash and Rabbi Sue Levi, a contributor to Weekly Blitz.
It is clear that being an one time Islamist himself, Mr. Choudhury had business relationship with Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh sympathizers and then had trouble with them on business matters. Sedition charges was brought against him by the previous government and hands of Jamaat-e-Islami is suspected because it was a part of the Government. It may be a clear case of misuse of power to take a revenge on enemies.
The involvement of the extremists from the Fellowship in Mr. Choudhury’s tabloid, the Weekly Blitz, is also rather curious. Mr. Choudhury, Islamist turned Zionist, may be an opportunist or a patsy, or both.It seems Mr. Choudhury has some explanations to make. It is unclear to me why other media or the civil society has not been vocal for the unlawful repressions against him. He may disclose it better.
After the recent change of Government and reforms in the judicial system, we can expect that Mr. Salah Uddin can defend himself in the court and if allegations are proved that he was framed, the persons behind this should be brought to justice.
