Meet Abul Azad. Politician… religious leader… convicted war criminal.
He’s currently on the run from the law. Moving to New Jersey is a good option for him. Under Governor Phil Murphy’s don’t ask/don’t tell Sanctuary policy, someone suspected of being Abul Azad won’t be detained unless he commits a crime in New Jersey. It doesn’t matter that he might be a convicted mass rapist and murderer somewhere else. Don’t ask/Don’t tell.
As a Sussex County Freeholder recently pointed out:
According to Wikipedia…
Abul Kalam Azad, (born 5 March 1947) is a former Bangladeshi politician of the Jamaat-e-Islami, televangelist and convicted war criminal of the Bangladesh liberation war.
He was the first of nine prominent Jamaat-e-Islami members accused of war crimes by the International Crimes Tribunal-2 of Bangladesh to be convicted for crimes against humanity, including murder and rape. On 21 January 2013 Azad was sentenced to death by hanging for his crimes.
Azad is currently on the run. His whereabouts are unknown. New Jersey’s Sanctuary State scheme is made to order for a war criminal like him. Made to order for someone convicted of crimes against humanity.
The Murphy administration is working to prevent county sheriffs from holding someone like him, pending identification. If he is in New Jersey, we doubt he will be travelling under his own name or that he will readily cooperate in identifying who he is and what crimes he committed. The Murphy administration’s “Sanctuary State” directives will do the rest to keep him from facing justice.
According to the U.S. Department of State, the United States is a destination country for thousands of men, women, and children trafficked from all areas of the world. These individuals are being introduced into sex trafficking and forced labor, organ trafficking, sex tourism, and child labor.
Individuals often flee to the United States seeking a better life, but through dangerous means, and they are preyed upon and victimized because of the way they are choosing to enter the United States. To compound the matter, there is grave danger from those illegally entering the country with the specific intent of committing violence and breaking our laws.
And then there are those convicted of war crimes – mass murder, mass rape, crimes against humanity – who will be shielded when local cooperation with federal authorities is blocked. Governor Murphy and his politically appointed attorney general have much to answer for.
