Peace Committees and Razakars

Your humble correspondent jokingly suggested the other day that Sheikh Hasina should simply dispense with the police and replace them with ruling party men instead. Well, today, that's one step closer to becoming a reality:

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has directed the cabinet secretary to officially start forming terrorism resistance committee in each district, upazila and union in consultation with the deputy commissioners to counter BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami’s anarchy.

Hasina, who heads the governing Awami League, also asked the leaders and workers of the party to assist the committees by providing names and addresses of the BNP and Jamaat men who are resorting to killings, arson, and vandalism.

Let me translate that for you: our Great Leader announced the formation of Peace Committees which will be assisted in eliminating the miscreants from BNP and Jamaat-e-Islaami by volunteers (aka razakars) recruited from the leading party.
