Justice for Barrister Rizwan Hussain sign now

As most of you might have heard already, barrister Rizwan Hussain was beaten and tortured at Zia International Airport in Dhaka, Bangladesh earlier this week. He has returned to the UK on Thursday afternoon, albeit, sadly with a broken arm and leg.

His crime was to help an elderly lady with ticket problems and was brutally punished by 5 soliders for 1 hour until he signed a declaration claiming that he was illegally traficking humans and that he falsely claimed to be a Barrister. When he pleaded with them for water, they threw it over the floor and told him to drink it off there. This act of injustice cannot go by without repercussions!

Rizwan Hussain is well for his over-whelming humanitarian aid work. He is a respected & admired figure in the Muslim community and his humble personality & open manner has made him a household favourite regardless of age or gender.

Working alongside Muslim Aid, he was helping regenerate the areas of Bangladesh devastated by Cyclone Sidr, hence his regular visits there. He was an angel to those who he went to help in Bangladesh and his suffering would not have been in vain.

Therefore, we have to act, not only to condemn such a monstrous act by the military but also to see justice served. In solidarity, with this petition, we - the undersigned demand:

1. An apology from the military for the barbaric actions of their personnel.

2. An apology from the Caretaker Government for failing to prevent the injustice suffered by this high profile philanthropist.

3. The trial and dismissal of the officers involved in the incident, upon their conviction.

Until our demands are met, we the British Bangladeshi community and others shall withdraw our support from the Bangladesh Caretaker Government.
