We understand the position of international rights bodies against the death penalty. But why should they remain silent when Pakistan denies its army's role in committing war crimes?
Precisely what will be achieved by making derogatory remarks on the judicial process, that has allowed for Bangladesh to bring to a close the demand of a nation and its people who have sought for the better part of four decades redress for crimes committed against an unarmed people, is still unclear.
Four decades is much too long a wait for justice. The ICT was not about revenge, as many would and do simplistically reduce it to — it is about coming to terms with history.
