Canada wanted to send Noor Chowdhury back in 2006 

Canada wanted to send Noor Chowdhury back in 2006

"We could have gotten him back by now. But they [the BNP] showed no effort to do so"

Canada's Immigration Court and Supreme Court had initially rejected Bangabandhu's murderer Noor Chowdhury's application for political asylum and wanted to send him back, but the then BNP government let the opportunity go by.
Canada even sent a letter in this regard to the Bangladesh government in 2006. But because of the BNP government's lack of interest in the matter, Noor Chowdhury was able to take advantage of Canada's pre-removal risk assessment clause to remain in Canada. Law Minister Anisul Huq, who is chief of the task force to extradite Bangabandhu's murderers, told the Bangla Tribune.
"We lost that opportunity. We could have gotten him back by now. But they [the BNP] showed no effort to do so," he said.
Noor Chowdhury's political asylum was rejected, and he was asked to return to Bangladesh at the time when the case against him was under trial in the Supreme Court in Bangladesh. It was unclear whether he would receive a death sentence or not at that time.
According to diplomatic sources, the Canadian government returned Noor Chowdhury's diplomatic passport to the Bangladesh embassy in Ottawa in 2006. They also expressed interest in returning Noor Chowdhury to Bangladesh. But Noor Chowdhury took advantage of the Bangladeshi government's inaction to seek counsel from immigration lawyer Barbara Jackson, and appealed to Canada's attorney general's office in mid-2007 to prevent his extradition to Bangladesh.
Noor is currently residing in Canada under the protection of the 'pre-removal risk assessment' law. His appeal stated that he would be sentenced to death if he returned. However, the Canada attorney general's office has yet to rule on his petition. According to Canadian law, victims of death sentences are not returned to their home countries.
The law minister said: "Today Noor Chowdhury has received a deportation order, but the Canadian government is saying that he will be hanged if he is returned, so we will not return him."
The minister also said that the FIR for Bangabandhu's murder was filed in 1996, and the full trial on the case was finished in 2009. If the case had not taken so long to resolve, then it would have been much easier to extradite the murderers since the countries who oppose the death sentence now did not oppose it then.
Another of Bangabandhu's murderers, AKM Mohiuddin was brought back by the caretaker government in 2007 after his political asylum application was rejected by the US. His death sentence was carried out at a later time.
Rashed Chowdhury
The law minister said that Rashed Chowdhury, another of Bangabandhu's murderers, is currently in political asylum in the US. Mentioning that talks to bring back Rashed Chowdhury had begun after the current government took power, he said: "I can say that there has been significant progress in that discussion."
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal told reporters on Tuesday that the national task force had conducted a meeting last month to discuss the extradition of Bangabandhu's murderers. The current state of the murderers were also discussed during the meeting.
On condition of anonymity, a government official said that Rashed Chowdhury's extradition was being discussed with the US amongst other things. He also said that the issue was discussed in Washington in 2014 with the US foreign secretary. It was also brought up the year after in talks between Foreign Minister AH Mahmud Ali and US Foreign Minister John Kerry.
Bangladesh government then hired New York-based law firm Skadden LLP to bring back Rashed Chowdhury. Former US president Barack Obama's former law consultant Gregory Craig is supervising the firm's efforts to extradite Rashed.
The government official also said that Foreign Minister Mahmud Ali sent a formal letter to the US law ministry requesting extradition of Rashed Chowdhury. Foreign Secretary M Shahidul Haque also repeated the request during his meeting with the American president's Deputy Assistant Secretary and the American National Security Council's Senior Director Lisa Curtis last June.
Abdur Rashid
A different government official confirmed that one of Bangabandhu's murderers, Abdur Rashid is currently in Pakistan. The Bangladesh government had sent a letter to Pakistan's Foreign Ministry after receiving tips from multiple sources. However, Pakistan has yet to respond to the letter.
Shariful Haque Dalim
A government official said that Shariful Haque Dalim, another accused in Bangabandhu's murder, had been said to be living in Pakistan, Kenya, Libya and even Europe according to various unconfirmed tips received by the government. According to the latest information, he was said to be currently residing in Spain.
Moslem Uddin
The government was made aware of another of Bangabandhu's murderers, Moslem Uddin's residing in Germany. The government official said that the government was currently in talks with the German Foreign Ministry on this issue, and that they had requested more information on Moslem Uddin from Bangladesh.
The government currently has no leads on the location of Abdul Majed. The law minister said: "The government will make all efforts to uphold the Supreme Court's ruling. We will keep on trying as long as the ruling is not fulfilled. The BNP government gave diplomatic service jobs to Bangabandhu's killers. The Ershad government then gave them promotions."

প্রধান বিচারপতি পদটি একটি সাংবিধানিক পদ, ধর্মীয় বিচারে তাকে হিন্দু বলাটা যুক্তিযুক্ত নয়। কথাটা একশ' ভাগ সত্য। প্রশ্ন হলো, আওয়ামী ওলামা লীগ যখন হিন্দু প্রধান বিচারপতির পদত্যাগ চাইলো অথবা হেফাজত যখন তাকে হিন্দু হিসাবে আক্রমণ করলো, তখন আপনারা কোথায় ছিলেন?

Hey, Mohiuddin Anwar, his last name is Das, looks like a converted Muslim? Remember, the Gulshan tragedy architect was a converted Muslim also? What happened, Now a days your brothers are conducting Peace Acts with hiring infidels and converting them as the foot soldiers of religion of peace? World actually failed to understand how long your peace loving brothers will continue their peace activities and it's already passed 1400 years? Please don't repeat those old rotten dialogues and don't bring India in it or blame Israel or America! Rather you people should admit that you have a problem and try to solve it! Blaming others will not help.  Also don't forget just today's bomb blasts in Afghanistan and Pakistan! Thanks. Enjoy in infidels' land, because in your 57 countries you have nothing but religion!

Maryland man accused of plotting attack on U.S. service member for ISIS

Maryland man accused of plotting attack on U.S. service member for ISIS
A 24-year-old Maryland man has been charged in a plot to attack a member of the U.S. military on behalf of the self-proclaimed Islamic State, federal prosecutors said Monday.
Prosecutors said Nelash Mohamed Das, a citizen of Bangladesh who came to the United States as a child two decades ago and lived in Hyattsville, spent months in late 2015 and early this year expressing his support for ISIS on social media.
Eventually, prosecutors said, Das met with a confidential FBI source whom he believed was a fellow ISIS sympathizer.
The two plotted an attack on a service member in Prince George's County, for which Das believed an ISIS contact in Iraq would pay them $80,000, prosecutors said.
In recent days, prosecutors said, Das and the FBI source purchased ammunition, and on Friday they packed up guns and drove together to the home of the military member, where Das believed they would conduct the attack.
Instead, Das was arrested by FBI agents, prosecutors said.
"Our goal is to catch dangerous suspects before they strike, while respecting constitutional rights," U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said in a statement. "That is what the American people expect of the Justice Department, and that is what
Das was charged with attempting to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization. If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison.
"Nelash Mohamed Das is alleged to have plotted to kill a U.S. service member on behalf of ISIL," said John Carlin, the assistant attorney general for national security, using an alternate acronym for the Islamic State. "Individuals intent on carrying out violence in the name of foreign terrorist organizations pose one of the most concerning threats that law enforcement faces today, and stopping these offenders before they are able to act is our highest priority."
U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy J. Sullivan ordered Das detained pending a detention hearing Thursday. Das did not have an attorney listed in online court records available Monday.
Das came to the United States in 1995 and is a legal permanent resident, prosecutors said.
Das used social media last year to express his support for ISIS, prosecutors said, "including support for terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and San Bernardino, California."
Das tweeted the name and hometown of the service member, prosecutors said, and said the service member "aspires to kill Muslims."
Prosecutors did not release the name of the service member.
Das tweeted a picture of an AK-47 assault rifle, prosecutors said, and wrote, "This is more than just a gun. This is a ticket to Jannah" — a reference, prosecutors said, to "the Islamic concept of paradise."
On Twitter, Das also expressed envy of people "slaying kuffar" — killing nonbelievers — and dying as religious martyrs, prosecutors said.
In April 2015, prosecutors said, Das began practicing firing weapons at a range in Prince George's County and submitted his fingerprints to obtain a handgun permit.
The FBI's confidential source first met with Das in May, prosecutors said. Over the next several months, they said, Das told the source that he knew and communicated with members of ISIS overseas, that he wanted to kill a service member in Prince George's County, that he could acquire weapons, that he wanted to travel overseas for ISIS, and that he was looking for additional targets to kill for the terrorist group.
During a meeting between the pair on Sept. 11, prosecutors said, "Das confirmed that he was committed '100 percent' to conducting an attack."
"'That's like my goal in life,'" he told the source, prosecutors said. And on Friday, prosecutors said, he sent the source a text: "I'm ready"
Before driving to the home of the intended target, prosecutors said, Das loaded ammunition into the magazine of one of two firearms that the FBI source had provided. The guns were not functional, prosecutors said, but Das believed they were.
Outside the target's home, prosecutors said, Das approached the trunk where the weapons were located, and FBI agents approached to arrest him. He ran, they said, but was quickly taken into custody.
Das is the second man in Maryland charged by federal prosecutors with providing material support to ISIS.
Mohamed Elshinawy, 30, of Edgewood is accused of receiving thousands of dollars from overseas that he believed was to fund a terror attack on American soil. He has pleaded not guilty. If convicted, Elshinawy also faces decades in prison.
