RAISE YOUR VOICE AGAINST POLITICAL VIOLENCE sign now

Ganotantry Party leader and labour rights activist, Nurul Islam, and
his son Tamohar Islam passed away in a mysterious fire days before the
national polls in December 2008. Political leaders, activists and
concerned citizens have long suspected the incident to be an act of
sabotage and rallied to demand a thorough investigation and made
repeated calls for justice. In December 2009, Home Minister Sahara
Khatun termed Nurul Islam and his sons death as a sensational case,
and formed an inquiry committee to reinvestigate this along with
several other high-profile cases.

Two years on, we are left with more questions than answers. There have
been gross inconsistencies and negligence in the investigation process
and important evidence has been overlooked.

Political killings are by no means new in Bangladesh. Reports suggest
that some 1,300 lives have been lost to political violence in
Bangladesh over the last ten years. There are numerous instances of
attacks against political leaders (like Shah AMS Kibria, Ahsanullah
Master, Monzurul Ahsan and Ivy Rahman), cultural activists (Romna
Botomul bomb blast in 2001), intellectuals (Principal Gopal Krishna
Muhuri, Dr Muntasir Mamun, Dr Humayun Azad) and journalists (Saleem
Samad, Manik Chandra Saha, Dipanker Chakrabarty). As time goes on, the
list of unresolved deaths grows longer and the hope for justice fades.

We call on the honarable Home Minister, Sahara Khatun, to undertake measures to:
Ensure a thorough, independent and transparent investigation
Set a timeline for the investigation results to be made public
