A Bangladeshi man in Atlanta goes to see a doctor.
This man is a doctor himself but couldn't figure out what is his problem.
 Doctor checks his blood pressure and temperature, asks several questions. He found nothing wrong and says:
"Everything is OK, it wasn't necessary to see a doctor!"
You don't know doctor, I am very sick. My blood pressure and temperature goes up when somebody criticizes the Awami League party! I call them razakars.even when they were freedom fighters. I know it is wrong.
That is a sickness of fascism. Who is your leader? asks the doctor.
"Sheikh Hasina." he replies. "There you go!" The Awami League was turned into a fascist party by Sheikh Mujib with his one party BKSAL system.
The Awami asks, "Doctor, Are you a BNP supporter?"
"No, I a democrat.I am an American but I have some patients here with this type of problem. Can I check your temperature now? Yes, it's very high because I criticized Awami League. I have no medicine for this problem except to recommend you to respect the opposing views or you change the Awami  party!

Tell me a razakar Joke
Abid Bahar
Hasina has been witch hunting for razakars with her Indian adviser Rezvi. She checked everybody except Ershad and asked him: "Where were you during the war?" Ershad figured out he is in trouble but was sincere and said, "I was in West Pakistan and came on leave to Bangladesh and again went back to Pakistan to join my job. That is in the past but like you, I was in India and met the RAW, I was sent to serve Zia and I did well."
" But return me that medal 'Bisho Bahaya!', You decided to support the BNP!" said Hasina. " I have something else for you!" She, grabs the medal from Ershad's neck.
 Ershed sweating: " I am OK, I am OK with this medal, please don't call me a razakar! Please! Help me Rezvi!, call Pronobda!

Hasina's laptop razakar joke
Abid Bahar
Hasina loves to say dirty jokes. She enjoys them more when she is alone with Sahara and Dipu. One day she had an idea and decided to say a laptop joke in the parliament involving Khalida. Hearing the joke, all the AL penguins laughed. Then it was BNP's turn, they brought their laptop jokes about Hasina.
A BNP MP stood up and said:
One day Hasina was visiting her daughter's house.  After the days work she was very tired and wanted to sit on a soft cushion sofa. Suddenly the light went off.  In the dark Hasina took a sit. Immediately after the light was back,  she began screaming!
"A razakar! He tricked me to sit on his lap!"
The razakar behai said: " I am not a razakar to you, I am a mukti Joddha. We should  even hug each other."
Hasina with a smile said: "Stop saying that behai!"  Don't you see, the light is on!"
In whispers she said, don't worry, these days some Mukthi Jodhas even call me "Indian razakar.In my war crimes trial I am only witch hunting anti Awami Leagures!" You are safe, You are an Awami Leaguer!"

Is Razakar a bad word? 

It depends who you ask. Some people are hypersensitive because they are possibly linked to the crimes of Razakars and still hoping for people to forget about their crimes and accept them as brothers.  Some criminals might have left the country after independence and sought political asylum as prosecuted Pakistani supporters to get their green cards. These criminals are even more allergic to this regular word. Once they hear the sound of word Razakar in the conversation, their ears get alerted like a dog. They get surprised because people have not forgotten after so many years after independence.

The funny thing is that despite having so many Razakars in 1971, you can hardly find any single "good" brave Razakar anymore. They just vanished like ghosts ever having to leave their towns and villages. Even, if you find one now, the person will almost likely to say that it is a mistaken identity and he was actually a Mukti around that time. He will show his Mukti certificate as a good citizen and you might feel ashamed for challenging that innocent looking fellow. 
If you care to dig little deeper, you might find that the 1971 war criminals have already been rehabilitated by one of our major parties. It did not take them long to get back to the power. Our great military dictator took them under his umbrella and the history was fast rewritten to portray these criminals as good and honorable people. Now, when they carry the badge of that party, they can call themselves as our true "Desh Premiks". Oddly enough that these criminals have the right to ask you whether you have been serving your country with true love and passion?  And, you might wonder how this could have happened to you and your dear country that fought to liberate?
Well blame yourself for your stupidity! Actually, the blunder was made right after the liberation war. Forgiving these criminals was OK but we should have insisted to have a stamp imprinted on these people' foreheads to make sure that they could be distinguished from a far distance. In that way, people could have easily avoided their stinky body odor in the communities for last 41 years. Now, you are always forced to put up with the smell and look for an emergency exit if you can find one in your community meeting room! 

With regards and regrets,

Shah. D

PS. Since, no Razakar is to be found alive, my sarcasm should not cause gall bladder pain to any friend or foe.
