Despite of the lack of any evidence, some media outlets such as bdnews24 still managed to make baseless claims citing a 'general perception' that almost all or some of the youth were linked with the student front Islami Chatra Shibir. Bangladesh Islami Chatra Shibir has strongly protested such baseless claims.

When U.S. based human rights organization Human Rights Watch raised questions exposing the flawed nature of the trials, Tureen, in her initial reactions, responded with harsh criticism, “I am shocked to read the HRW article and the outrageous comments made therein regarding Ghulam Azam Case”. Following this statement, she outlined some queries whereby she sought to question the stance of the HRW regarding the trial of Ghulam Azam. The author, while checking them out at the following link, was shocked at the nature of these questions. http://bangla.bdnews24.com/bangladesh/article659970.bdnews (in English)

" The trial of Saddam Hussein and seven other defendants before the Iraqi High Tribunal for crimes against humanity was marred by so many procedural and substantive flaws that the verdict is unsound, Human Rights Watch said in a 97-page report released today.. “November, 2006.
Human Rights Watch had compiled a 97 page investigative report on the procedural faults evident in the Saddam trial. Simple deductive reasoning should be enough to debunk a facade of a character that Tureen Afroz evidently is. Following this enlightenment, one should not be surprised at more gibberish emanating from around the corner of the above said personality.
" The Bangladeshi government's effort to bring to trial those responsible for atrocities during the struggle for independence in 1971 is an important and long overdue step to achieve justice for victims, Human Rights Watch said today. In a letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Human Rights Watch said that it strongly supports a successful legal and judicial process that is fair and impartial." May 2011
There is apparently another important aspect behind the above question of Tureen. Her attitude highlights the thoughts of a mentally walled up section of the society which tends to believe that international human rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and Transparency International were formed for the single purpose of defaming Bangladesh and Bangladeshi politicians, especially the Awami League government.
Pathetic are these characters who do not have the decent common sense to note that the above organizations employ thousands of employees worldwide and that the reports centering around Bangladesh form a very minor if not insignificant part of their regular reports.

Has Tureen Afroz never witnessed the depth of the analysis put up by Western media in places such as the US and the UK regarding controversial issues of subjudice? These dissecting analyses are not limited to procedural faults but extend to ad-nauseam discussions about what judgments the judges should or should not give. Did Tureen Afroz not even witness the huge controversies, opinions and analyses in the media and on the streets sparked by the great public interest worldwide regarding trials of Saddam Hussein and Slobodan Milošević?
This is the enlightening report by the international human rights organization Human Rights Watch on the flawed trial of Ghulam Azam:
