Hindu professor arrested in Dhaka for “spreading hatred” on social media

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), the elite anti-crime and anti-terrorism unit of the Bangladesh Police, has arrested Ruma Sarkar, an assistant professor at the Begum Badrunnesa Government Girls’ College in Dhaka, on charges of spreading a provocative and false video on Facebook.

She was arrested on Wednesday morning from her residence on Baily Road in the capital.

Khandaker Al Moin, Commander of RAB’s Legal and Media Wing, said, “Ruma Sarkar posted a video of a murder in Dhaka’s Pallabi area claiming it to be the killing of Jatin Saha in Noakhali. She also came on Facebook Live and spread provocative information. We are interrogating her in custody.”

  1. In the recent years there has been a growing trend to dub a true video as a fake one. This is an excellent scapegoat to those authorities who are supposed to rise to the occasion and take necessary action. Asst. Prof Ruma Sarakar’s video (deliberately stamped fake) is the latest addendum to such shrewd & cowardly practice.

  2. The video clealry demonstrated how a Hindu youth was hacked to death by two butchers and who those killers were. It’s immaterial with the name of the victim–be he was Jatan Saha or somebody else. This video cannot be a fake one irrespective of the location of the incidence–may be at Noakhali or Cumilla or Chittagong. Generating a fake video of this proportion is simply beyond the capacity of an academician [a lady college faculty in this case]. The Rapid Action Battalion officials know this. But the irony is: Instead of arresting those two murderers, RAB arrested the complainant. What was her offence? She exposed a brutal truth. So under the excuse of spreading ‘provocative information’, Bangladesh police arrested an innocent individual sparing two deadly criminals who will naturally get emboldened to perpetrate similar or more heinous mayhem in days to come. And the honest people will get afraid of exposing the truth lest they get harassed by police. Hat’s off Bangladesh Police for your cowardice stance to cover up a brutal murder!
