watching him eat talk laugh and walk the streets of Dhaka On February 26 they were ready Grainy CCTV footage shows three of them following their victim to the spot they had picked to kill him And then on the street outside Dhaka University they killed Bangladeshi-American writer Avijit Roy leaving his wife Rafida Bonya with serious injuries Five minutes before the attack began police sources in Dhaka said the leader of the death squad received acoded text message on a disposable cellphone signalling that the killers were in place He received another a minute after the attack to let him know Roy had been hacked down Share This Article Related Article That man police allege was Redwanul Rana a student at Dhaka’s prestigious North-South University and now among Bangladesh’s most wanted criminals said to command the death squad of a shadowy al-Qaeda affiliated organisation called the Ansarullah Bengali Team In 2013 Ansarullah had put out a list of 84 anti-Islamist voices it wanted silenced Eight so far are dead: Roy Rajeeb Haider Jafar Munshi Mamun Hossain Jagatjyoti Talukder Arif Hossain Dwip Ziauddin Zakaria Babu and Wasikur Rahman The killings are part of a bitter struggle to control Bangladesh’s destiny pitting the secular nationalists who won independence in 1971 against the Islamists who usurped power four years later For the past decade the nationalists had the upper hand — but now the wheel could be turning again Caliphate calling Early this month evidence of a significant new jihadist mobilisation emerged when Bangladesh’s elite Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) recovered assault rifles and pistols from cadre of a new organisation — the Shaheed Hamja Brigade RAB investigators had recovered over 150 kg and bomb-making equipment in earlier raids on the Brigade RAB chief Benazir Ahmad said that “an entire army battalion could have been equipped with the explosives” “I can say without bragging that we have been on top of the problem” said Ahmad “There working very hard to surprising us with what they can do though and I’m working harder than ever because I hate surprises” The story goes back to 2013 when unprecedented protests demanding the death sentence for Jama’at-e-Islami leaders implicated in 1971 war crimes swept the country From his base in Pakistan al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri issued a call for war He urged jihadists everywhere to help Muslims in Bangladesh “where Islam is being clearly fought” He claimed the country’s “atheist government protects those who publicly ridicule the Prophet” Fighters from Bangladesh intelligence officials believe have responded to the call though no one is certain how many In one video ‘A Glimpse of a Base of Al-Qaeda in Khurasan’ a Bengali-speaking fighter identifying himself as ‘Suleiman’ said: “Here I feel there is the kind of environment that helps one learn how to deal with his family and what one’s role should be as a son a Mujahid and a Muslim” Late last year an Ansarullah Bengali-language video ‘Eradicate Democracy’ asked Bangaldesh’s “patriotic armed forces” to rise against the government and set up a Caliphate in Bangladesh His master’s voice Police say the North-South University student radicals who formed Ansarullah joined hands because of their common attraction to the work of Indian-educated Bangladeshi cleric Jashimuddin Rahmani Rahmani’s speeches had long fired the imagination of Bangladesh-origin jihadists worldwide Among them were Rajib Karim convicted for plotting to bomb a British Airways flight and North-South alumnus Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis serving time for trying to seeking to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York Fluent in the art of disseminating his message online Rehmani described himself as the Bangladeshi voice of Anwar al-Awlaki – the slain US-born jihadist ideologue who led al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula Rehmani publicly eulogised Osama bin Laden and called for the killings of Bangladesh’s atheists Now charged with inciting the murder of Rajeeb Haidar among the architects of the 2013 anti-Islamist Shahbag protests Rahmani admitted to an anti-terrorism court last month that his words had led his followers to kill The first arrests The Dhaka police made their first arrests of Ansarullah operatives in March 2013 when they arrested five Dhaka North-South University students in connection with Haidar’s murder The Ansar al-Mujahideen English Forum hailed the arrested men as “lions of ummah (Islamic nation)” In years since then there have more than twenty other arrests of alleged Ansarullah cadre Many including Rana began their careers in the Islami Chhatra Shibir or Islamic Students’ Movement — the student wing of the powerful Jama’at-e-Islami party In this the trajectory of these generation-next jihadists has been identical to that of the first generation of Bangladesh fighters Drawn from one-time Chattra Shibir members who fought against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan the formation of the Harkat-ul-Jihad-e-Islami Bangladesh was announced at a public meeting in 1992 In 1996 leaders of the group merged with the neo-fundamentalist Ahl-e-Hadith Andolon to create the Jami’at-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) The rise of JMB The JMB soon began staging lethal attacks on cultural events like jatra performances seeking to wipe out the country’s syncretic culture It killed opponents including judges and police officials Famously the group set off 500 bombs at 300 locations in 50 cities and towns on August 17 2005 The attacks it said were meant to push the government for the “implementation of Allah’s law the way the Prophet Sahabs and heroic Mujahideen have implemented for centuries” Bangladesh’s government then led by former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia dithered Dependent for support on the Jama’at-e-Islami and deriving its own legitimacy from religion it chose not to act against the top terrorist leadership The Jama’at’s political power the scholar Sajjan Gohel has argued facilitated “an atmosphere of extra-Parliamentary militancy” But the military government that took power in 2006 cracked down and hanged four of the plotters including its chief Hundreds of JMB cadre have since be arrested by Sheikh Hasina’s government The few leaders who have survived are believed to be hiding out on the Indian side of the border Existential crisis For the Jama’at-e-Islami and its jihadist allies this is a moment of existential threat The Hasina government has cracked down hard on the organisation Top leaders of the Jama’at like Delwar Hossain Sayeedi and Abdul Qader Mollah await execution for their role in the 1971 war Last year former Jama’at Minister Motiur Nizami was sentenced to hang after being convicted of smuggling weapons into Chittagong for insurgents in India’s north-east Leaders of Ansarullah the inheritors of their legacy will decide if the struggle to turn Bangladesh into an Islamic state has a future – and many fear their odds are more than good The Jama’at-e-Islami has built up a network of charities hospitals educational institutions micro-credit centres and even banks estimated by scholar Abul Barkat to bring in over US$200mn a year “There are real incentives for young people to join the Islamist ranks” said analyst Maj-Gen Mohammad Abdur Rashid “The Jama’at is the swamp in which the jihadists are bred” For all the latest India News

terrorist attacks in Gurdaspur and Udhampur Swaraj said not only had Pakistan not honoured past assurances but there had been new cross-border attacks in which two terrorists from Pakistan had been caught Watch video The minister said India had wanted to hold talks at the level of the National Security Advisors (NSAs) and Director Generals Military Operations (DGMOs) of the two countries “If their response is serious and credible India is prepared to address all outstanding issues through dialogue” she said Describing terrorism as the greatest threat facing the world today she said it could only be defeated by organised international action She made a push for the UN to adopt the comprehensive convention on terrorism that was drafted by India and has been in the works since 1996 “The world must demonstrate that it has zero tolerance for terrorists who kill and maim innocent civilians with action based on the principle of prosecute or extradite Countries that provide financing to terrorists and safe havens for their training arming and operations must be made to pay a heavy price by the international community” she said Swaraj said it would be appropriate for the UN to adopt the convention which would provide a legal framwork to deal with international terrorism in its 70th year The convention has been controversial because of the disagreement over defining terrorism On Wednesday Sharif had attacked India from the UN rostrum for “fomenting instability” in his country and what he called the “occupation” of Kashmir praised China for being “a model of south-south cooperation” and proposed a “four-point plan” toward peace Using its “right of reply” India today described Pakistan as “the occupier in question” in J&K and called attention to its reservations about the proposed China-Pakistan economic corridor “passing through Indian territory illegally occupied by Pakistan for many years” The first secretary at India’s Permanent Mission to the UN made the reply The “heart of the matter” India noted “is a state that regards the use of terrorism as a legitimate instrument of statecraft” whose “consequences have spread beyond the immediate neighbourhood” In a direct response to Sharif’s finger pointing at India for the instability in Pakistan and his claim that his country was the primary victim of terrorism India said it was “not uncommon for states when confronted with serious challenges to shift responsibility on others That is the case with Pakistan and terrorism reflecting the inability to recognise that this is a homegrown problem that has begun to bite the hand that fed it” With some sarcasm thrown in the statement noted that “(we) agree that terrorism has underlying causes in this case poverty of wisdom and ignorance of consequences” India said the ceasefire violations at the Line of Control (LoC) and International Boundary were taking place “to provide cover to terrorists crossing the border It needs no
