ICNA is to Jamaat-e-Islami as ISNA is to the Muslim Brotherhood. And you find Jamaat-e-Islami killers in ICNA for the same reason that you find Hamas, Al Qaeda and other Muslim Brotherhood figures in ISNA, CAIR, etc…
But some of those crimes are catching up with ICNA.
Bangladeshis in New York on Sunday afternoon demonstrated for one and a half hours in front of the Queens branch of Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), an organisation run mainly by the South Asian Muslim diaspora of the USA, demanding deportation of convicted war criminal Ashrafuzzaman Khan.
After liberation of Bangladesh, the war criminal had escaped to Pakistan and from there to the US, where he quickly used his network to head organisations like ICNA.
Ashrafuzzaman, who was a leader of the then Jamaat-e-Islami’s student wing Islami Chhatra Sangha and then became a commander of the Al-Badr, a death squad formed by Jamaat with Pakistani army’s help to cleanse Bangladesh of its intelligentsia in 1971.
As Al-Badr commander, he not only helped in the abduction and massacre of the intellectuals but himself shot seven professors of Dhaka University in the killing fields of Mirpur.
Found guilty of his crimes, Ashrafuzzaman was given the death sentence 42 years later on November 3, by the International Crimes Tribunal-2. Before that an arrest warrant was issued against him on April 25, but the US remained silent on this issue because Bangladesh does not have any extradition treaty with the country.
Obama Inc. has also been condemning Bangladesh’s trials and the New York Times has been running negative reports of them… just like they did of the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
