Bhasani's 39th death anniversary today

Today is the 38th death anniversary of Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhasani, a legendary politician of the subcontinent and a dreamer of Bangladesh's independence.
Marking the day, political parties and social and cultural organisations have taken elaborate programmes -- doa and milad mahfils, photography exhibitions and discussions on the life and works of the spirited leader of the common people.
Moulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani Parishad, Bhashani Smriti Sangsad and Nayjo Party Bangladesh will place wreaths at his grave in Tangail's Santosh in the morning, said press releases.
Bhasani was a celebrated name and figure during his time across Bangladesh (then East Pakistan), West Bengal and Assam for his struggles and uncompromising stance for the agricultural workers and labourers.
The brave and devoted leader of the common people worked relentlessly and spent almost his entire life for the oppressed masses, which earned him the title “Mazlum Jana Neta”, meaning the leader of the oppressed.
He was a pivotal figure in the gradual build up of the movement against Pakistan in the 1960s.
As part of the United Front with Suhrawardy and Fazlul Huq in 1954, Bhashani crisscrossed the country informing Bangalees of all the evils the Muslim League administration had been perpetrating.
In 1969, he publicly demanded that the Ayub regime free Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and withdraw the Agartala conspiracy case.
Bhasani's commitment to Islam did not make him a fanatic.  His belief in the secular struggle for Bangladesh was unequivocal.
The eminent preacher and political leader, passed away on November 17, 1976.

14 November 2015 INTERPOL Chief strongly condemns Paris terror massacre

World police organization sets up crisis task force

LYON, France – The Head of INTERPOL has strongly condemned a wave of terror attacks across Paris on Friday night which saw at least 120 people killed and 200 injured in a series of coordinated attacks.
“On behalf of the international police community INTERPOL condemns these cold-blooded, cowardly attacks in the strongest terms and extends its condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims,” said Secretary General Jürgen Stock.
With recent weeks having seen acts of terror across all regions of the world, the Head of INTERPOL underlined the global nature of the terrorist threat.
“INTERPOL stands in full solidarity with the citizens of its host nation, France, as it does with all victims of terrorism in all regions of the world where no country is immune from terrorism, and where innocent victims are targeted. Terrorism is a global threat,” said Mr Stock.
“INTERPOL is united with France and has pledged its full operational support to its authorities as they investigate these barbaric attacks,” added Mr Stock.
The world police body has set up a crisis response taskforce at its General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon, following the series of attacks involving explosions, which reportedly included suicide bombings, as well as multiple shootings by heavily-armed individuals.
As part of its crisis cell, INTERPOL’s 24-hour Command and Coordination Centre has been closely liaising with its National Central Bureau in Paris to provide full assistance requested by French authorities in relation to ongoing investigations.
INTERPOL’s global policing capabilities include nominal, fingerprint and DNA databases as well as enhanced border security capabilities which support the more effective tracking and tracing of suspected Foreign Terrorist Fighters around the globe.
