Following direct instructions from Al Qaeda connected Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP)’s acting chairman Tarique Rahman, pro-BNP Internet Service Providers in a number of places in Bangladesh have started blocking access to Blitz website.
Regular readers of Blitz are sending information stating, whenever they are trying to login to the online edition of this newspaper, they are seeing “Website Cannot be Found” message, which clearly proves the site is being blocked by the local internet service providers. So far, such complaints are received from at least five different locations. Some of them also said they cannot access Blitz website even by using Banglalink mobile data from Banglalink.
It may be mentioned here that, when Muhammad Yunus was in Grameen Bank, he was using influence on Grameen Phone in blocking access to Blitz site for this company’s subscribers. We are not sure of the reason behind a section of Banglalink subscribers not being able to access Blitz site.
Acting chairman of BNP, Tarique Rahman, a convicted terrorist turned mad at Blitz as this newspaper has been consistently exposing his party’s connections with Al Qaeda as well as numerous terrorist plots.
Meanwhile, it was reported in Blitz that global terrorist outfit Al Qaeda is advancing its goal of turning Bangladesh into its next safe haven by intensifying its activities both within the country and through its operatives in the West. For expediting Al Qaeda’s dangerous goal, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), which has been maintaining connections with Al Qaeda for decades has already mobilized its cyber-activists along side representatives in creating ground for this global terrorist outfit’s takeover of Bangladesh, while BNP’s acting chairman Tarique Rahman, who has been living in the United Kingdom as asylum-seeker since 2007 has been making frantic bids in destabilizing Bangladesh’s law-and-order situation – topple Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and turn the country into an Al Qaeda-backed neo-Taliban state, while cyber activists of his party are currently intensifying “India Out” plot xeroxing that of Maldives, with the target of inciting anti-India and anti-Hindu sentiment in Bangladesh.
In a deeply concerning move, during the 2001-2006 rule of the BNP-Jamaat coalition government, they even named a bridge ‘Hezbollah’ as a “mark of honor”, openly expressing their support for the Lebanese resistance group, Hezbollah, which the United States has designated as a terrorist organization. BNP-Jamaat coalition government’s junior communications minister Salahuddin Ahmed told French news agency AFP, “I named the bridge Hezbollah because of our love for the Lebanese resistance group. Hezbollah is the only group which is fighting Israel and the bridge is named after the group as a mark of honor”.
The then Foreign Minister Morshed Khan went as far as to label Israel’s actions as “state terrorism” and “religious terrorism” while accusing the United States of sponsoring it.
Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s hosting Al Qaeda group including Ayman al-Zawahiri was first exposed by eminent journalist and counterterrorism expert Alex Perry, who in a TIME magazine article on April 14, 2002 had revealed Al Qaeda kingpin al-Zawahiri and other members of the terrorist group’s arrival and stay in Bangladesh.
