Why this petition matters

Started by General People of Bangladesh

Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) is an armed wing of Bangladesh Awami League (BAL) which is currently ruling the People’s Republic of Bangladesh since 2009. BAL has been ignoring fair and inclusive election for all. A sham election with virtually no opposition was held on 5 January 2014. In November 2018, another general election is planned which will be another display of wide-range of corruption, intimidation and frauds.

To stay in power, BAL has been using BCL against general population during all types of peaceful protests. However, all limits have been crossed when BCL began attacking and terrorizing unarmed, vulnerable school children who are peacefully demonstrating across the country, particularly in Dhaka city, demanding road safety measures which is an extremely corrupt and dangerous sector in Bangladesh. Every year, more than 10,000 people die due to reckless driving and unfit vehicles. 

BCL has been attacking all types of people, including women, elderly, indigenous peoples, unarmed university students for a while with impunity and under the protection of the current government and police. But this time, it has crossed all limits as they are now targeting children as young as 10-12-year olds.

BCL has transformed from being a menacing armed youth body of a political party to a terrorizing organization with complete impunity.

Enough is enough! We, the people of Bangladesh, must protect our children. And now we fervently demand, through this petition, to the United Nations and security services to enlist BCL as an armed terrorist organization that preys on and crashes general people, especially children of Bangladesh.

We appeal for peace and justice and that is why we are reaching out to international community to find avenues to protect children of Bangladesh. We are seeking your help! To start with, BCL needs to be globally recognized and registered as a terrorist organization.

The General People of Bangladesh
