BANGLADESH:ASIA: Global recognition for persecuted Bangladeshi human rights defender

The Asian Human Rights Commission
ASIA: Global recognition for persecuted Bangladeshi human rights defender A Statement from
Mr. Adilur Rahman Khan, a renowned human rights defender, who has been relentlessly persecuted by the incumbent regime in Bangladesh, has been recognized for his courage by the global human rights community.
Adilur has been awarded the 2014 Gwangju Prize for Human Rights, which he will share with Mothers of Khavaran from Iran. The award will be presented in a public function held in Gwangju, South Korea, on 18 May 2014.
And, in another announcement released yesterday, Adilur has been selected as one of the three recipients, alongside Cao Shunli and Alejandra Ancheita, for the 2014 Martin Ennals Human Rights Award, which will be presented in a formal ceremony in Geneva, Switzerland, on 7 October 2014.
This recognition, in relation to two prestigious awards, brings further limelight to Adilur's work, to his uncompromising stand against forces of impunity in Bangladesh.

A former Deputy Attorney General of Bangladesh, Adilur has been active in the promotion of human rights, democracy, and the rule of law, and in highlighting the extrajudicial killings and disappearances that vex Bangladesh. His association withOdhikar, a reputed national human rights organisation, as its Secretary, has placed Adilur on a persecution list prepared by the Bangladesh government.
Last year, for 62 days, from 10 August to 11 October, Adilur was detained by the government without warrant. The ostensible reason for persecution of Adilur andOdhikar is the publishing of a report that documents 61 extrajudicial executions undertaken by security forces during demonstrations against the incumbent regime.Odhikar has continued to face threat of forced closure. Its staff has been hounded and intimidated with threats of fabricated criminal charges. Yet, Adilur has continued his work, risking life and freedom.
The Gwangju Prize for Human Rights promotes the spirit of the May 18 Democratic Uprising, wherein the people of Gwangju, South Korea, resisted brutal military forces to help establish democracy and human rights in the country in 1980. The prize is awarded annually to an individual or organization that has struggled for or contributed to the improvement and advancement of human rights, democracy, and peace in their community and country. Former laureates include some of the most prominent persons in Asia who represents the spirit of freedom, human rights, dignity and democracy, like Mr. Kay Rala Xanana Gusmão (East Timor), Mr. W. J. Basil Fernando (Sri Lanka), Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi (Burma), Mrs. Angkhana Neelaphaijit (Thailand), Mr. Munir Malik (Pakistan), Ms. Irom Sharmila Chanu (India), and Mr. Sushil Pyakurel (Nepal).

The Martin Ennals Award for Human Rights Defenders is a unique collaboration of ten of the world's leading human rights organizations to support and protect human rights defenders worldwide, namely: Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Human Rights First, International Federation for Human Rights, World Organisation Against Torture, Front Line Defenders, International Commission of Jurists, EWDE Germany, International Service for Human Rights, and HURIDOCS.
The awards are a warning to dictatorial regimes seeking to smother the spirit of freedom, dignity, and human rights, and should serve as an inspiration to all activists, defenders, and citizens, doing their part to lift humanity to its true potential.
The Asian Human Rights Commission, along with all of its partner organisations in Asia and across the globe, congratulates Adilur and the Mothers of Khavaran for their effort, and also salutes the work of Cao Shunli and Alejandra Ancheita.

The Naked City of Dhaka

In the morning the sky exploded and that instantly blanketed in the Dhaka city. The rain water overflow in the street of Dhaka city in the rainy November wind hard  toward the comfort of their apartments and homes. On the road of “Shahid Minar” near Dhaka Medical college the tall, thin man wearing very simple clothes moved along with the rushing crowed to a rhythm “O Amar Sonar Bangla, Ami tomai bhalobashi” ( My golden Bengal, I love you.) He was walking rapidly, it is not harm of the other pedestrians who were also walking rush. He was free after a 3 years jail and he was on his way home to tell his wife that, it was finished. The past was going to bury its dead and the future was bright and golden. He was thinking how her face would glow when he told her the news. As he reached the “Shahid Minar” just opposite Science building of Dhaka University the traffic light on its way and he stopped. A few feet away, the man reached in his pocket for some coins and offering the beggar. At that instant someone stub him on the back by big knife. O Ghani, he had knows Ghani from his childhood. Now Ghani is member of criminal gang of Dhaka city and work as a police source. Dhaka city have more than 300 criminal gangs as per report of Detective Branch, Dhaka Metropolitan police. There was pain in his back and it began spread. It become hard to breath. He opened his mouth to ask someone to help him and he fall down the stair of “Shahid Minar” ( Monument of language movement) and his blood melting with rain water in the stair. But nobody came to help him. Dhaka is the city now if anybody face such situation nobody came to help because to avoid harassment of Police. Blood from his body flow in the stair of “Shahid Minar” and going to told the news to his wife “ Our future is bright and golden. The pain was worse and he remember- he was going to his wife told that, he was free.He closed his eyes to rest from the blinding whiteness of the sky. The rain began with exploded sky but he no longer felt anything. ( This short story written by me in German language and published in German literature Magazine in Germany now I translated in English to share with my face book friend. )

Bangladesh: at the end of day.

At the end of the day, the citizens are living in a panic-stricken condition

At the end of the day, the citizens are living in a panic-stricken condition, helpless, as they have no remaining resort to rely on. If the Human Rights Council and the international community remain convinced today with only their theoretic achievements, without considering the dire necessity of putting the theories into the practical life of a vast population of the world (in this case those living in Bangladesh) it will be recorded as a landmark failure in tomorrow's history.

The international human rights instruments.

The international human rights instruments in the form of Covenants, Conventions, Protocols, and General Comments have already contributed a lot in developing the theories, norms, standards, and principals that have been universally recognised. Regrettably, countries like Bangladesh, where the basic rule of law institutions, including the judiciary, maintain evident disability in functioning independently and competently throughout history, can easily walk away despite orchestrating heinous forms crimes against its own people.
