Ashrafuzzaman Khan, a former president and secretary-general of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), will be charged with war crimes, according to Mohammad Abdul Hannan Khan, coordinator of the investigation agency of the Bangladesh's International Crimes Tribunal.
Khan revealed the plans for the indictment during a press briefing October 9. Khan will be charged by Bangladesh's International Crimes Tribunal for his involvement in the torture and execution of 18 political opponents in 1971 during Bangladesh's fight for independence from Pakistan.
Khan's associate, Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin, a prominent Muslim activist in the United Kingdom, will also be charged for the same crime, as also reported in Britain's Daily Mail. (Shockingly, Mueen-Uddin is the director of Britain's National Health Service's Muslim Spiritual Care Provision.)
