US issues travel alert in Bangladesh for its citizens

 

The US Department of State on Wednesday issued a travel alert for the US citizens traveling to or living in Bangladesh “as pre-election periods in Bangladesh have seen unrest”.

 

“US citizens are urged to remain alert to local security developments and to be vigilant regarding their personal security by knowing the locations of police and fire stations, hospitals, and other places to relocate to feel secure,” according to the travel alert which will expires on January 7, 2014.

 

There have been no direct, targeted attacks on US citizens; however, in isolated instances, Westerners and US citizens have been caught in the middle of clashes and demonstrations or stranded when highways have been blocked, according to the US State Department.

 

“Historically, pre-election periods in Bangladesh have seen unrest involving supporters of the two major political parties. In 2013, the political dispute centers on disagreements regarding the structure for holding national elections scheduled for January 5,” it said.

 

The US Embassy in Dhaka is closely monitoring this situation and activity throughout Bangladesh.

 

US citizens are advised to be aware of their surroundings and exercise good judgment in the coming weeks.

  1. LONG LIVE ISLAM, LONG LOVE GENERAL ERSHAD, LONG LIVE KAZI JAFAR, LONG LIVE J.P. LONG LIVE 19 PARTY ALLIANCE
    TRUTH & JUSTICE HAS PREVAIL AT LONG LAST. HASINA’S DE-ISLAMIZATION CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY HAS FAILED & SOONER OR LATER SHE WOULD FACE ISLAMIC SHARIA COURT, INSHA-ALLAH. THE SENTENCE SHE DELETED FROM OUR CONSTITUTION TO PLEASE INDIA ON SENGUPTA’S ORDER REGARDING ALLAH WOULD BE RESTORED INSHA-ALLAH. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SECULARISM, DEMOCRACY OR PREVENTING ANY MILITARY TAKEOVER AND WAS NOT IN AWAMI LEAGUE’S LAST ELECTION MANIFESTO. BY CONFERRING ON A SELF-CONFESSES APOSTATE BLOGGER THE HIGHEST ISLAMIC TITLE OF SHAHID GOING TO HIS HOUSE PERSONALLY SHE HAS INSULTED AND ABUSED ISLAM, NONE DARED TO DO IN MUSLIM BANGLADESH IN OUR HISTORY. SHE DID NOT REPENT, SEEK FORGIVENESS AND WITHDRAW THE TITLE. SUCH DEEP IS HER HATRED TO ISLAM AND SUCH VINDICTIVE IS HER ARROGANCE! THEN SHE LAUGHED AND JOKED ABOUT ISLAMIC SHARIA LAW SAYING SARCASTICALLY WITH A CUNNING SMILE IN HER FACE, “ I will try the war criminals according to sharia law”. AS A RESULT SHE WAS REBUKED BY THE COMMUNIST FOR HER SAYING TO TRY THE SO CALLED WAR CRIMINALS UNDER ISLAMIC SHARIA LAW. SHE CONSOLED THEM SAYING, “ I was just joking. This was a “KOTHER KOTHA”,( A JEST)!!
    SHE CANNOT SURVIVE POLITICALLY AFTER LAUNCHING SUCH A VICIOUS AND UNPRECEDENTED ASSAULT ON ISLAM TO PERPETUATE HER POWER WITH THE BACKING & BLESSINGS OF HER ANTI-ISLAMIC FOREIGN MENTORS. BANGLADESHI JONOGON HAVE REJECTED HER, ISOLATED HER AND CONDEMNED HER DE-ISLAMIZATION POLICY. GEN ERSHAD IS RIGHT “SHE HAS DIVIDED THE PEOPLE INTO TWO- THE ATHEISTS AND THE BELIEVERS”. NOT ONLY JP SUPPORTERS BUT ALL RIGHTEOUS THINKING PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY WOULD VERY MUCH WELCOME THE RIGHT DECISION TAKEN BY ERSHAD, KAZI HAFAR & PARTY’S OTHER LEADERS AT A VERY CRUCIAL TIME IN BANGLADESH’S HISTORY THAT FACING A SERIOUS CHALLENGE FOR ITS VERY EXISTENCE AS AN INDEPENDENT MUSLIM COUNTRY. BY DECLARING ISLAM AS OUR STATE RELIGION AT ANOTHER CRUCIAL TIME AND NOW ABANDONING THE INDIAN ARRANGED SO CALLED FREE AND FAIR ELECTION UNDER HER PREMIERSHIP, JP AND ITS LEADERSHIP HAS ONCE AGAIN PROVED THEIR DETERMINATION TO SAFEGUARD AND PROTECT BOTH OUR CREED AND INDEPENDENCE. WE WOULD DEMAND THAT ALL THE FICTITIOUS, POLITICALLY MOTIVATED CASES FILED AGAINST THE LONGEST SERVING EX PRESIDENT BE WITHDRAWN IMMEDIATELY & ALL THE JAILED POLITICAL LEADERS OF ALL THE OPPOSITION RELEASED. – BY SYLHETI CRIPPLED MUKTIJUDDA-DEWAN MONJU MUNSHI
