Communists find imperialism in FBI's cooperation in Avijit's murder

That Communist Party of Bangladesh is opposing the presence of FBI in Bangladesh to help investigate into the murder of Avijit Roy is worth noting. Avijit Roy is an American citizen so America has every interest to know why and who killed him so brutally. He was killed openly despite three-layer police security where he was attacked.
Avijit's father was unhappy and expressed discontent that although police were near by the spot, still they did not rush to save him despite the fact that his wife was screaming for help.
The statement was political and in the assessment of the Communist Party the people of Bangladesh are facing at the moment three threats and these are: imperialism, communalism and looting. In that view of the matter, FBI investigation team is considered as a threat from imperialism. But the threat of looting public wealth by the politicians of the country needs no immediate attention.
What the communists must know well is that they have no support in Bangladesh and the people of Bangladesh do not want either international communist dictatorship or imperialism from outside. They are demanding people's election to choose their own government.
The conclusion that the Communist Party came to is that neither of two major political parties can meet the threats because they are too eager to sell the country's interest. In other words, only the communist dictatorship can save our people. What has remained unsaid is that the present threat to democracy is not against public interest. Maybe good for the communists. But Bangladesh was not born to be under the communist rule.
But we must admit we cannot be sure who is doing what in this fight for denying people democracy. Last time in 1975, one party system was introduced by Awami League along with the communists in the name of revolution.
In our view the cooperation of an outside agency not connected with our dangerous struggle between leftist authoritarianism and democracy should be considered essential. It is easy to blame rightist Islamist group and that does not prove the truth.
We support the government in agreeing to get help from FBI. We also want to be sure through impartial investigation who are responsible for the crime. Nobody will say that things are clear for knowing with certainty who are behind the brutality. Finding an easy target for blaming is not difficult. There may be others to exploit the uncertain political situation in the knowledge that it will be easy for them to escape.
There may be different motives and different kinds of pressure hindering impartial investigation. New kind of experience and technology may be required. FBI will certainly be useful for a convincing and effective investigation into the killing of Avijit.
The challenge should not be about who can kill more than others without the fear of being  caught but how to build right leadership to save lives and  stop Bangladesh boiling in chaos.
