Bangladesh journalist gives threat to US citizen

Blitz Desk

A Bangladeshi journalist named Jahangir Alam Akash who runs a website named Humanrightstoday [www.humanrightstoday.info] has given threat to US Citizen and internationally known peace activist Dr. Richard L Benkin through email recently. It may be mentioned here that, Dr. Richard L Benkin is scheduled to visit Bangladesh during the first part of March to attend several seminars and symposiums organized by local organizations. Knowing about this trip, Jahangir Alam Akash, who is known for his notoriety in Bangladesh and facing several extortion charges as well as aligned with anti US and anti Jewish groups, sent a mail to Dr. Richard L Benkin stating [most of the sentences in the mentioned email contained spelling mistakes which are corrected for the convenience of reader], “I hope you do believe in God . Do not Kill the Human, I hope you are the generator behind killing people of holy Palestine. I have doubt that you are Zionist or Eblish [evil]. Please read the articles of Dr. Tony Klug, He is the real Israeli.”

You are the broker of American Government. We do hate the activities of a broker. Bangladesh government should ban you travel to Bangladesh. You are idiot in supporting the fake journalist Chowdhury.”

Commenting on Dr. Richard L. Benkin’s unrelenting effort in favor of internationally acclaimed award winning Bangladeshi journalist and peace activist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, Jahangir Alam Akash wrote, “Please read the articles of Dr. Tony Klug, He is the real Israeli .You are the broker of American Government . We do hate the activities of a broker. Bangladesh government should ban you travel to Bangladesh. You are idiot in supporting the fake journalist Chowdhury.”

Jahangir Alam Akash although claims to be working in favor of religious minority in Bangladesh, in reality he and his palls are desperately trying to stop every effort internationally in defense of Bangladeshi religious minority groups. Especially, Interfaith Strength www.interfaithstrength.com is continuing its campaign against the most controversial Vested Property Act. This is the point which makes notorious grabbers of properties belonging to Hindu religious minority group in Bangladesh extremely annoyed. They have hired several lapdogs including Jahangir Alam Akash and are propagating to stop this extremely effective website as Interfaith Strength is gradually becoming one of the most dependable and neutral source of information on oppression of religious minority in Bangladesh and the sub continent.

Commenting on this website, Akash wrote, “We do ask to President B Obama to ban interfaithsterength right now and kick you out from US. Bangladesh should re interrogate the case Chowdhury, and we demand it to Sheikh Hasina.

“We also demand to stop interfaithsterength.com and we highly demand to ban the said site.”

Finally in the mail, Jahangir Alam Akash threatened Dr. Richard L Benkin of dire consequences and physical attack during his visit to Bangladesh.

This is for the first time any US citizen is openly threatened by any notorious anti US element.

In the website www.humanrightstoday.info which is owned by Jahangir Alam Akash, description of his professional back ground states that, “Jahangir Alam Akash was a promising young journalist in Bangladesh . He was also a human rights activist and attuned to the daily injustices suffered by ordinary people around him, he reported extensively on the problems of extrajudicial killings, torture and corruption prevalent in the region.”

In the website is it also mentioned that Jahangir Alam Akash works as the ‘Freelance Correspondent’ of Deutsche Wella, German Radio. It is not learnt whether Akash had any assignment from the state owned radio station in Germany to continue his notorious anti-US and anti-Israel propaganda as well as criminal threat to a national of United States.
