An upcoming war crimes tribunal in Bangladesh has many questioning the political motives behind the movement, reports current affairs magazine The Diplomat. Beachler says that Islamist party president Motiur Nizami, who founded and led the Badr militia that is currently being charged with war crimes, nevertheless has particular cause for worry. “Nizami was active against independence and advocated violence against Hindus who were seen as the source of Bangladeshis’ alleged betrayal of Pakistan and Islam,” Beachler says. “On the merits and the politics Nizami has much to fear.”
