A campaign lodged to boycott Bangladesh goods on arrest or secular writer

Image

Los Angeles: July 12, 2007. A grassroots group has declared a worldwide boycott of Bangladesh goods, demanding that its radical Islamist government drop its false charges against author, publisher and peace activist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury. His crime: advocating interfaith dialogue between Muslims and Jews and calling for his government to resist a radical Islamists takeover. Mr. Choudhury was arrested at the Dhaka Airport as he was about to board a plane to address a writers` conference in Tel-Aviv. The Bangladeshi government charged Mr. Choudhury with treason, blasphemy and sedition, which carries a death sentence or 30 years in prison. Numerous Bangladeshi officials have admitted that the charges are false and maintained only to appease the radical Islamists. As their government continues to defy resolutions by the US Congress, European Union, Australian Senate, and many others to drop the charges, the group hopes that economic pressure will succeed where appeals to human rights fell on deaf ears. In a hearing held on June 28th the government announced it was ready to produce witnesses against Mr. Choudhury and sentence him, after it had privately acknowledged that the charges against him were false, and had promised to drop them
