SHOOT AT SIGHT ORDER ISSUED IN B’DESH

Muslim World

Bangladesh authorities on 27 March issued “shoot at sight” orders, as the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its allies in the 18-party coalition has called a nationwide 36-hour strike demanding resignation of the ruling Awami League government. Schools and big shopping malls were closed and transport was thin on the street though opposition activists did not make visible their presence on streets in the Capital where the elite anti-crime Rapid Action Battalion and riot patrolled. The paramilitary Border Guard Bangladesh has been kept on alert.

The BNP was yet to issue any statement on the government’s “shoot at sight” decision but chairman of the statutory National Human Rights Commission Professor Mizanur Rahman criticised the order saying other options were there to prevent the saboteurs. “If it is the decision (shoot at sight) I don’t agree with that,” he told newsmen.
