7th June 2013, Geneva, United Nations: International Club for Peace Research (ICPR) organized a Peaceful Photographic Demonstration before United Nations, Geneva Headquarters on 4th June 2013. This Demonstration was carried out in wake of atrocities done by Islamist Fundamentalist Organization i.e. Jamaat - e - Islami in Bangladesh.
ICPR called for a Ban for Jamaat - e - Islami Party in Bangladesh for committing wartime atrocities during 1971 Liberation War. Wrangling over a war that ended 42 years ago, might puzzle outsiders, but it underlines the unresolved rift within this South Asian country of 160 million between secular nationalism and a belief that Islam is the defining core of the state.
Bloodletting erupted across the country at the end of February when the war crimes tribunal condemned a top leader of the Jamaat party to hang. The army was deployed after furious Jamaat activists attacked police with crude bombs, swords and sticks, burnt down houses of Awami League leaders and Hindus, and raided Hindu temples. At least 30 people were killed on the day of the ruling alone, and the toll ratcheted up over the next few days.
"They raped Bangladeshi people; they were involved in killing and mass killing of our people. This Jamaat-e-Islami actually, that is a terrorist organization, so the character of that organization obviously always will be same. Sometimes, they mask their activities with so-called political activities. But that is a terrorist organization, so, we demand this Jamaat-e-Islami should be banned" said a ICPR spokesperson.
