  • Anand Kumar replies: While the violence in Bangladesh unleashed by the Islamist forces in the wake of war crime trials is ominous, there is little that the government of India can do. This is purely an internal affair of Bangladesh. However, what happens in that country will also have some impact on India sooner or later. Probably, India can help the Bangladesh Government in projecting the right perception about the international war crime tribunals. There is a feeling in the West that these tribunals are not fair and are being used as a tool of political vendetta. However, this is completely untrue and the war crime trials being conducted by the country would help it to remain moderate.
