Veteran leader of the Islamic Movement in the Indian sub-continent Janab Ghulam Azam Sahib is languishing in jail for the past eighteen days. He is 89 years old and affected with age related complications. The attitude of the Bangaladesh Government is depressing, agonising and shameful. What does it want to achieve by torturing a 89 year old leader? The silence of the world community is deafening.

“After seeing him today, I am worried about my husband’s life. At 10.30 am on Friday, the prison authorities agreed 3.30 pm for me to meet my husband at the prison cell.

The man (my husband) who left the house for court 16 days ago on 11 January 2012 walking was almost unrecognizable today.

“An 89-year-old man needs constant care and support,, whereas he even has to [perform menial tasks such as] washing his own plate. The inhuman behaviour towards him shown by the hospital and prison authorities is a gross violation of human rights. After many oral and written efforts, we could not yet provide him with Qur’an, Hadith, Qur’an Translation and Tafsir (commentary) for the last 17 days that could keep him going in his solitary life. In spite of trying for two weeks, no barber was arranged for him. After the specialist’s recommendation and many oral and written applications, he was allowed some additional foods on Thursday. He is not getting the types of food he needs. There have been around 10-12 applications to the hospital and prison authorities most of which have not even been replied. The way both the authorities are trying to avoid our family is hurtful and extremely discourteous. “
