Solidarity with Chowdhury Mueenuddin

This petition was published by Jamil Sherif on Nov 08, 2013

Writers on the Salaam Blog website are aghast at the verdict passed by Bangladesh’s ‘International’ Crimes Tribunal on Mr Chowdhury Mueenuddin on 2 November 2013.

We invite fellow bloggers, voluntary sector bodies and community organisers in Britain to sign this message of solidarity with Mr Mueenuddin and his family in their times of stress and distress. Mr Mueenuddin is a former journalist and has contributed to Salaam Blogs.

While he was opposed to the break up of Pakistan in 1971, Mr Mueenuddin’s activities at the time were of a political nature and unrelated to military action or atrocities at the time. He settled in Britain in 1972 and is a British citizen. He has excelled in serving the British Muslim community in a variety of roles, including working as Director of Muslim Care Provision in the NHS from 2004 to May 2013.

He was tried in abstentia and given a death sentence in a judicial process that lacked international supervision, over disputed events relating to the nation’s war of independence over forty years ago.
