Bangladesh Protests & Background, My Day, Tacos

Protestors in Bangladesh are building as the War Crimes Tribunal has found several guilty of war crimes during the 1971 war of independence from Pakistan. Jamaat-e-Islami was opposed to independence and supported Pakistan in it’s attempt to retain what was then called East Pakistan.

“The government’s consideration of a ban on Jamaat-e-Islami will likely exacerbate the tensions between the country’s Islamists and secularists. Opposition parties say Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s secular government is using the war-crimes tribunal to attack her political opponents. The new law gives the tribunal the power to try entire organizations for war crimes, which could allow Ms. Hasina’s government to push to effectively outlaw the Jamaat-e-Islami, as protesters have demanded.”

“Tens of thousands of protesters in Bangladesh returned to the streets of the capital Dhaka this weekend: this time to denounce the death of one of the key figures and leaders of their protest movement, anti-Islamist blogger Amhed Rajib Haider, who was murdered on Friday.

An architect by trade, and better known under his pseudonym “Thaba Baba”, he had recently received online threats from Jamaat-e-Islami, the country’s largest Islamist party.”

“Tens of thousands of people resumed mass demonstrations in Bangladesh’s capital on Saturday, intensifying their demands for more severe punishment for war criminals from the country’s 1971 liberation war, while also demanding justice for the slaying of a blogger who had been a leading organizer of the protests… The crowd were estimated at more than 100,000 people.”

“In 2010, the International Crimes Tribunal charged eight of the Jamaat leaders with crimes against humanity committed during the Bangladesh liberation war by . The verdict passed against Abdul Quader Molla, one of the leaders, recognized the role played by Jamaat-e-Islami and their student wing (the then ‘Islami Chatra Sangha’) as the collaborators in the war crimes committed by Pakistan army in 1971. The party was also found guilty of forming paramilitary forces, such as Razakar and Al-Badr forces, and took part in the systematic genocide of the Bangladeshi people and other violent activities.”

While I am no expert on Bangladesh, I have been to that region of the world, in nearby Kolcata or Calcutta as it used to be called. The mouth of the Ganges is in Bangladesh making the country a great rice producer and victim to global climate change.

“Over the last thousand years, rice has been the dominant crop in Bangladesh and it currently accounts for 77% of agricultural land use. There are about 13 million farm families, who grow different types of rice, which includes traditional, modern, or hybrid rice varieties. Over 11.7 million hectares of land in Bangladesh is dedicated to rice production. It provides about 70% of direct human calorie intake, making it the most important food crop in Bangladesh.”

“Bangladesh has got a population of around 150 million (2011) …almost 75% of the population lives in rural areas and a population density of 954.4 (people per sq. km.). Bangladesh is predominantly Agricultural with two thirds of the population engaged in farming or Agro-based industrial activity mainly.

The total land area is 147,570 sq. km. consists mostly of Floodplains (almost 80%) leaving major part of the country (with the exception of the north-western highlands) prone to flooding during the rainy season. Moreover, the adverse affects of Climate Change – especially High Temperature, Sea-level Rise, Cyclones and Storm Surges, Salinity Intrusion, Heavy Monsoon Downpours etc. has aggravated the overall Economic Development scenario of the country to a great extent.”

More About Me

Seems that every other day is a good day, at least emotionally. Today has been good. I woke around 4 am full of worries, after half an hour or so of laying there, I got up and studied, taking my mind off my problems, mostly financial, by reading about the integumentary system (skin, nails and hair). Focusing on learning something is a good way to forget about worries, and after an hour or so I fell back asleep.

After waking up again, I cleaned the bathroom and bathtub, bleached the shower nozzle (should be done weekly), and then ate breakfast. Then back to studies, finished the chapter on skin, lots of details on epidermal and dermal layers and the subcutaneous tissue, sebaceous glands, sudoriferous glands and foilicie, all part of the skin that protects our bodies. I think a bump on my head might be a squamous cell carcinoma, or not. Trying to diagnose yourself after reading a little physiology is dangerous. I will make an appointment with my dermatologist, once I am done with dealing with the kidney transplant. Whoohoo, I know a little medical terminology.

Later I walked to the market got some groceries, using a $5 off on $25 coupon. Good deal. I like walking since my girlfriend has the car most of the time.

My Latest Breakfast Taco

Soy chorizo, potatoes, tomato, bell pepper, serrrano pepper, sauteed with Chili, basil, and cumin, add raw chopped onions, sharp cheddar cheese cubes, and reheated or newly cooked rice with corn tortillas to make tacos with a poached egg. Throw on some salsa, in this case New Mexico green chile salsa, hot sauce, cilantro and fresh squeezed lemon. This is a great breakfast taco, or three or four.
