This should become a regular feature of my blog; however, one would have to sift daily through large numbers of potential candidates which I have no time for at present, alas.
Yesterday, Khaleda Zia at the press conference said, "I am
stunned. I am outraged. I am deeply hurt. I have no words to condemn and
protest. Heinous genocide is taking place again in our country. People
are being killed like birds.
"The government has gone on a
barbaric killing spree. Old people, children, adolescents and even
chaste women are not being spared. It looks like foreign occupation
forces are committing atrocities against the people of Bangladesh.
beyond our imagination that a government can carry out genocide against
its own people. We
liberated our motherland in 1971 standing against
such genocide. We cannot accept that any government for any reason would
choose the path of genocide in that independent country."
The words "genocide", "war criminal" and "razakar/rajakar" are used most liberally by Bangladeshi politicians (and public, unfortunately), to the extent that they have become completely meaningless.
