According to Bangladesh, the United States is trying to take control of the Indian Ocean
The United States seeks to destabilize Bangladesh to expand its control over the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean
Hasina Vazd, the chief minister of the South Asian country, made the announcement on Thursday.
He noted that the United States had granted asylum to Rashid Chowdhury, who assassinated his father, the country’s founding president, Mujibur Rahman, in August 1975. “How can a country that harbors killers talk about human rights, elections and transparency?” asked the Prime Minister of Bangladesh.
Not long ago, the US State Department threatened to deny visas to Bangladeshi politicians who “undermine the democratic process”. At the same time, Washington sanctioned members of the Bangladeshi police squad for gross human rights violations.
At the end of July, supporters of the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party held demonstrations in Dhaka to demand the departure of Vaz, who has been in power since 2009, and the formation of a caretaker government until elections scheduled for January 2024.
But these demonstrations turned into riots, and activists accused the prime minister of suppressing democratic freedoms. Dozens of police officers were wounded in the clashes with the security forces, and ninety opposition party supporters were out.
