subject Thanks for your mail of 24 June 2007
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Dhaka, Monday 26 June 2007.
Dear Mrs. Liz,
Thank you for your mail.
If I am asked to speak about the political situation of Bangladesh, I can not suppress the truth that the so-called 'Democracies of the Free World' have successfully taken away whatever little Freedom my Motherland had. Our problem is not our poverty. Our problem is our selfish unpatriotic elite who are knowingly or unknowingly serving as the mercenaries of foreign vested interests.
On 12 Feb 2007 in a letter addressed to the Hon. Chief Advisor of the current Caretaker Government of Bangladesh we wrote:"..fascism of Awami League, palace conspiracy of BNP and so-called 'Free Media' & 'Civil Society' controlled and manipulated by Euro-American vested interests have almost stripped Bangladesh of her sovereignty."
In the first week of January we came to know that American Embassy and British High Commission were secretly meeting senior officers of Bangladesh Army. The country was on the brink of a civil war. The So-called 'International Community' and their mercenaries at the helm of 'Free Media' & 'Civil Society' had already succeeded in creating such a situation that even Bangladesh military was not in a position to intervene without the support of US and her partners (UK, EU, India, UN) only who could tune the 'Free Media' and the 'Civil Society' in line with their agenda.
As a person, US Ambassador Butenis seemed better than other diplomats and the elite of my own country.
Initially the Emergency was welcomed by common people as they felt relieved since the country was on the verge of fratricidal civil war. But the so-called joint forces in the plea of recovering government lands destroyed small business of Hundreds of thousands of self-employed lower and lower middle-class families without any rehabilitation. Price hike, increasing unemployment, huge number of self-employed hawkers and small business owners suddenly rendered unemployed, reduction of flow money circulation - al together the situation is apparently very worrying.
However, Bangladesh is the land of Saints and Sufis. Allah Himself is its protector. Local or foreign traitors, whoever exceeds limit shall be punished.
I look forward to meeting you in Dhaka.
With best wishes and best regards.

Dear Mr Haq
I received your test message. I have not visited Bangladesh since last October - though I have been watching events from afar with great interest and would love to have been there. I am hoping to return before the end of this year and I also hope that I shall be able to see you and talk to you about your views of the way politics are developing within your country.
