I have received this email alert from the Bangladesh Military Forces Online Forum:
We have receieved an emergency email notice from intelligence/national security specialists concerning Hasina & Khaleda. Please read and forward to others:
"AIRCRAFT CARRYING HASINA MUST NOT ENTER BANGLADESHI AIRSPACE: CODE RED"
AUTHORITIES MUST DENY ENTRY OF THE AIRCRAFT CARRYING HASINA TO ENTER BANGLADESHI AIRSPACE. AT LEAST LANDING MUST BE DENIED. IT IS A MATTER OF CLEAR AND PRESENT NATIONAL SECURUTY THREAT. SHE IS PLANNING MASSIVE CIVIL UNREST IN BANGLADESH LIKE NEVER BEFORE IN COLLABORATION WITH KHALEDA. ALL PREPERATIONS ARE DONE. THERE WILL BE A BLOODBATH IF SHE ENTERS BANGLADESH."
Massive civil unrest, Blood Bath? Is that a speculation? How can this be possible without building up momentum by protests, especially while the emergency act is in place? I guess the
Hasina has been "assured by a top adviser that the government will see that her image and honor is not hurt" so she is delaying her return.
According to the Daily Prothom Alo, multiple sources confirmed that an adviser spoke to Hasina over the phone on Wednesday, and asked her to not change her return schedule.
So what exactly is going on? It seems a quarter is trying to keep politicians out of their way. Shadakalo also warns about initiatives of a quarter of politicians to betray their parties and build another party to exploit the situation and they want Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia out of sight to make it happen. Could this be their propaganda?
Well everybody knows that absolute power corrupts. What the Bangladeshis are praying is that the 3 months of honestocracy does not turn into a autocracy.
Update: Nazzina said its a hoax. However Tasneem Khalil said that this is being circulated in many places. One Bangladeshi close to Bangladesh military attache in Australia is said to be behind the military forum site.
The Australian published today an interesting story titled "General looks to grab power in Bangladesh". Some excerpts:
THE political crisis gripping Bangladesh deepened last night, with increasing speculation that the country's military chief was planning a coup d'etat. As former prime minister Sheikh Hasina opted to stay in the US rather than return home to face murder charges, Bangladesh's ambitious army chief, Lieutenant General Moin Ahmed, was yesterday said to be working towards forcing both Ms Hasina and her arch rival, Begum Khaleda Zia, into exile.
However this is surely another hoax as no other news is there to confirm. On the contrary denying media reports an adviser to the interim administration said that it had no intention to harass Awami League president Sheikh Hasina or BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on any ground. (The Daily New Age)
Wondering why this hoaxes are being sourced back to Australia!
