Abstract

The past decade in South Asia has been a deteriorating one in terms of the conditions of political imprisonment, both in respect of the numbers of those incarcerated and the quality of prison facilities. This is the reality in nearly all the countries in the subcontinent. But Bangladesh has grimly distinguished itself from all others in the past year. Ziaur Rahman has opened an ugly breach. Mass executions of the imprisoned ordered by the central authority of the state is something repugnantly new. The executions in Bangladesh must not only be condemned, but must also be comprehended within the rapidly shifting political alignments that are developing inside Bangladesh and in the external relations of that country.
