Bangladesh journalist urges government to mull over trial of Pakistan war criminals

Dhaka, March 13 (ANI): Bangladesh journalist, Shahriar Kabir, urged the government of the country to consider the long pending demand of trial of Pakistani war criminals, who were released under Simla Agreement in 1972. The Simla Agreement was inked between India and Pakistan in July 02, 1972, which paved the way "for a diplomatic recognition" of Bangladesh. Recently, Bangladesh Law Minister Anisul Haque hinted at the trial of the Pakistani war criminals. Kabir while talking to a reporter in Dhaka said that Bangladesh should try the Pakistani alleged war criminals, accused of genocide during 1971 liberation struggle. Slamming the fundamentalist forces, Kabir said that the Islamist forces pose a major challenge before the present government. Mar 13, 2014
