Only the nations which had been signatory to the surrender of Japan would send judges. there was a huge difference.As generations of historians have emphasised Pal insisted from the very beginning on carving out his own legal point of view about the trial His dissenting judgment was a hugely controversial document Pal was not the only dissenter of course; the French and the Dutch judges also gave dissenting opinions But Pal’s voice was certainly the most controversial Historians who champion Pal’s dissent argue that it was a pioneering anti-colonial judgment in the sense that Pal condemned the project of the Allied Powers to proclaim themselves as righteous victors against the ‘evil’ Japanese and thus to use the trial to legitimate their hegemony including their imperial control over Asia in the name of creating an order of international criminal justice" "Detractors of Pal argue that in criticising the trial Pal also ended up being something of an apologist for Japanese war criminals Pal’s argument that the Japanese top political-military leadership could not be accused of direct involvement in war crimes certainly leaves itself open to a great deal of criticism (as he has faced from many proponents of international criminal and humanitarian law)" explains Banerjee Banerjee expands on Pal’s legal stance in the trial He says "Pal was an exceptionally complex figure whose views on international criminal justice need to be contextualised in terms of his broader legal philosophy as well as the ambivalent role he was placed in and especially his fear of Western control over East and Southeast Asia (not only Japan but also Indonesia Indochina etc) This fear of Western colonialism led him to take a legal-moral stand which would appear to us to be ethically problematic" Inputs about Girja Shankar Bajpai and Radhabinod Pal are from Milinda Banerjee Milinda Banerjeeis an Assistant Professor at the Department of History Presidency University Kolkata and Research Fellow at Ludwig-Maximilian University Munich He specialises in the intersections of South Asian and global intellectual history with a particular focus on concepts of sovereignty law and democratic politics Published Date: Mar 26 2017 08:16 AM | Updated Date: Mar 27 2017 16:48 PM tags: #FWeekend #Irrfan Khan #Milinda Banerjee #Radhabinod Pal #Toyko Trial #Toyko trials #World War 2 history #WW2 War crimes also see Pandit Ulhas Bapat santoor maestro and close associate of RD Burman dies at 67 Bitcoin’s time could be up: Are government-backed cryptocurrencies the next big thing Journalist writer Gnani passes away: Tamil Nadu will miss his fiercely independent voice IBNLive image BJP, Samajwadi Party’s Azam Khan.

With agency inputs The blood has not yet been wiped off the streets of Nice that France has turned against President Francois Hollande.Multiple TV channels covering the Thursday night tragedy showed unmitigated anger pouring against a President largely seen as effete ineffective and incapable of preventing waves and waves of terror attacks on French soil The attack in Nice was as gruesome a terror strike as any Latest reports indicate that 84 people were killed (50 more extremely critical)when a large white truck said to be driven by a French-Tunisian citizen ploughed into a large crowd gathered at the beachfront Promenade des Anglais in southern city of Nice for a fireworks display on Bastille Day Reports have emerged that the driver shouted "Allahu Akbar" before taking out his gun and firing several times at the crowd before he was subsequently neutralised Bastille Day commemorates the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789 an important event in the French Revolution It is marked with a military parade down Paris’s most famous boulevard a presidential address to the nation and a vast fireworks display Founding values of French Republic equality liberty and fraternity are glorified The significance of the day and the fact that a large number of citizens had gathered for celebration — made it a lucrative target In one fell blow two purposes were achieved One a huge number of people were killed ensuring widespread outrage and non-stop media coverage — aspects which serve as fuel for glorification of terror and draws more and more perpetrators Two a symbolic cruel blow was dealt to the French ideal of syncretism the bedrock on which the multicultural republic stands Marine Le Pen leader of right-wing French National Front who has repeatedly promised to tackle Islamist terrorism with iron fist Reuters Faced with the nihilism of terror and mounting outrage amongFrench citizens Hollande appeared helpless “France as a whole is under the threat of Islamist terrorism We have to demonstrate absolute vigilance and show determination that is unfailing” the French President said in a televised statement extending by three months a state of emergency that has been in place since the November attacks that killed 130 in Paris was to end 26 July "The terrorist character (of the attack) cannot be denied" he said Strong words Hollande must be commended for addressing the most important point that needs an outright honest admission — that there is a strong undeniable link between Islam and terrorism This could be the first step towards accepting a reality that terrorism which has come to represent the gravest threat to modern existence cannot be fought with just military might and must be battled at the level of ideas And in that discussion around Islamist terrorism liberals intellectuals and political leaders must discussa fundamental question— Why so many Muslims seem drawn to extremism The problem is not that world leaders such as Francois Hollande Angela Markel Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton are unwilling to tackle the question but that the prevalent discourse around terrorism isrendered ineffective and ultimately useless by the mind-bending political correctness and an obdurate denial to link it to Islam Evenwhen perpetrators repeatedly evoke their unflinching faith in the greatness of god during the very acts of violence — as for instance they did during the Charlie Hebdo attacks or the present tragedy in Nice — there is stout insistence not to take the proclamations seriously Most analysts liberals and political leaders are unwilling to identify such acts with the teachings of Islam and prefer to view them as a perversion of a religion that is essentially peace-loving and tolerant Theyinsist that it is a war against evil But the bitter truththat we fail to admit time and time again is that some people appear to be almost entirely motivated by their religious beliefs in carrying out the acts of violence If the beliefs are taken away — as it is repeatedly done — then the acts carry in themselves little sense and no one is able to explain those except offer meaningless platitudes like: "every American stands in strong solidarity with the people of France and we shall not be intimidated" as Clinton did shortly after the tragedy in Nice She might as well have lifted the words from her previous statement that was issued during the November 2015 Paris attacks or the shooting in Orlando or San Bernandino It’s an endless loop This presents the ideal situation for xenophobic and right wing forces to rise as is being seen across Europe Because the leaders of mainstream political parties worldwide areloathe to discuss the link between terrorism Islam and the need for reform in the ancient religion the truth has been completely outsourced to right wing leaders like Donald Trump in America or Marine Le Pen in France If the French had any sense whatsoever they will vote for Marine Le Pen next year only she will take a stand against muslims — David Jones (@DavidJo52951945) July 15 2016 Remove Angela Merkel and her dangerous open border policy Vote Marine Le Pen to tackle the

(@MarkSKrikorian) July 15 2016 I hate to say it because I despise national socialism but after #Nice France could do much worse than electing Marine Le Pen #NiceAttack — The Lord Protector (@JC_W12) July 15 2016 There is absolutely no reason to believe that all these are voices of bigotry or xenophobia The overwhelming concern when unarmed civilians going about their lives are attacked and killed is lack of security and fear And from that insecurity people gravitate to the leader who promises them insulation from danger The Nice assault is the third major terrorist attack in France since the January 2015 Charlie Hebdo massacre In November suicide bombers and shooters murdered 130civilians in Paris in cafes and at the Bataclan concert hall Four other attacks of smaller scale in the last 18 months make the tally close to 240 dead with hundreds injured Most of the terrorists were from immigrant descent and followers of Islam Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump who has made the deportation of illegal immigrants a cornerstone of his campaign for US presidency tweeted: “Another horrific attack this time in Nice France” he wrote on Twitter “Many dead and injured When will we learn It is only getting worse” In France Le Pen’s popularity in the upcoming 2017 Presidential election is expected to soar after the latest spate of violence It is not clear yet if Hollande will stand for re-election "This attack may nonetheless contribute to France’s sense that with Islamist attacks on the rise and its old ally in the UK apparently in retreat it has to take a more hawkish and assertive line to protect its citizens"said Richard Gowan New York-based fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations A report in Guardian has a small anecdote Manelle aged five had refused point blank to go to school after the November attacks in Paris "She’s terrified" said her mother “She knows about the bad men who killed some people and she thinks they are coming here I’ve kept her home with me today” It is evident why the right wing is rising across EuropeWhen a terrorist attack takes place — and most are targeted against unarmed civilians in virtually every sphere of public life — the initial reaction of shock and horror is quickly replaced by anger
