In Bangladesh, the level of violence against innocent people has gone under a drastic increase. In recent years, Bangladesh Awami League, the ruling party, started war crimes tribunals to prosecute the suspects of the genocide in the liberation war of 1971. Major suspects have been found to be as the alliances of political parties such as Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh and Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP). However, Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh has now been banned by the government for the recent parliamentary election.
On the other hand, petrol bombs are being thrown to public buses, trains and other vehicles during the political stress almost about every day. The number of causalities is getting bigger with time. According to the human rights monitoring report by a local organization called "Odhikar", 391 people were killed and 21,574 have been injured during the political turmoil of the country from January to November 2013. The political parties are yet to take any responsibilities whatsoever of the subversive activities against the innocent.
