An imprisoned leader of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has been running anti-government propaganda in several dubious websites as well as Pakistani newspapers with the direct collaboration of his paid agents namely Mendi N Safadi, an Israeli Druze and Shipan Kumer Basu, a Bangladeshi fugitive criminal now living in India. It may be mentioned here that, BNP leader Aslam Chowdhury is in prison facing numerous corruption charges.
According to media reports, for years, Mendi N. Safadi, along with few of his accomplices, including Shipan Kumer Basu has been continuing serious criminal activities in India, Israel and the United States and making tons of money by falsely presenting himself as a leader of Israel’s Likud Party. One of their criminal activities is stealing photographs of various individuals from Facebook, social media and websites and later using those into different types of crimes.
The media report also claimed that it was also proved by its investigative team of journalists about the crime racket of Mendi Safadi and Shipan Kumer Basu to have been stealing photographs of various individuals of social repute and using those stolen photos with different names in his websites as well as other printed documents proving themselves to be important individuals.
According to reports, newspapers have carefully scrutinized the website of World Hindu Struggle Committee, a website that has been recent suspended on allegation of using it for criminal activities, was run by Mendi N. Safadi and his top accomplice Shipan Kumer Basu. On this website’s Our Team page, Mendi N. Safadi was seen as a member of the “Honorable Advisory Board”. Mendi has used a picture in this section and named the person as Larisa Rudneva (Rasa). But in reality, this photograph is of Dolly Parton, one of the biggest stars of country music and one of the best selling recording artists of all time. Known as the Queen of Country Music, Solly Parton has sold millions of records. She has been covered in the Forbes magazine by Dan Schawbel on November 29, 2012. Title of the article is – Dolly Parton: Her Personal Philosophy, Life Obstacles and Best Advice.
But, Mendi N. Safadi and Shipan Kumer Basu had no shame or fear in using Dolly Parton’s photograph in their website by changing her name. Similarly, Mendi has also used the photographs of few more individuals and changed their names. Below are the descriptions of people, who had been illegally used in Safadi’s website:
Frank Beno Mariano Creyelman is a Belgian politician, whose picture had been stolen by Mendi N. Safadi from Creyelman’s Facebook account and used in the website of World Hindu Struggle Committee’s Our Team page.
In fact the photograph used here is of Jorg Sobolewski, a leader of AfD Party in Germany. When contacted by Blitz news desk, the office of Mr. Jorg Sobolewski expressed total surprise and dismay knowing Mendi N. Safadi and Shipan Kumer Basu are using his photograph in the website of World Hindu Struggle without his consent or knowledge. His office has categorically dismissed any connection between Jorg Sobolewski and Mendi Safadi or World Hindu Struggle Committee.
Irina Tsukerman is a human rights and national security lawyer based in New York. She has written extensively about geopolitics, the Middle East, and US foreign policy for a number of American, Israeli, and international publications.
It is not yet clear if Irina Tsukerman has any connection with World Hindu Struggle Committee – a dubious and fraudulent website, run by Mendi N. Safadi and his cohorts.
According to Twitter, David Ha’ivri is an indigenous Jew. Strategist and public speaker. Salt of the land. Based in Shomron, the Heartland of Israel. Our team already has sent a mail to Mr. Ha’ivri notifying him of his photograph being used by Mendi N. Safadi in the fraudulent website.
Original name Rachel Sharon Chazak, who according to her profile, is a clinical nurse specialist at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. When contacted she expressed total surprise knowing her photograph and name has been used in the fraudulent website of World Hindu Struggle Committee. It is understood; Mendi N. Safadi and Shipan Kumer Basu had been stealing photographs and details of various individuals from the social media and using those into criminal activities. On investigation it was also revealed, hundreds of Jewish individuals are in the Friend List of Shipan Kumer Basu in his Facebook account. Shipan has few more Facebook accounts.
Alexsander Shapiro Suliman:
According to Facebook account, Alexsander Shapiro Suliman had studied in the Tev Aviv University. He is the general director at Soyuz Cirkestrada Koncert in Moscow, Russia. A source in Moscow claims, Soyuz Cirkestrada Koncert is a part of Russian spy agency KGB.
Making money by fooling people:
Reports in the newspapers claimed to have collected the following information from the website of the so-called World Hindu Struggle Committee. It is anticipated that, after publication of this report, Mendi N. Safadi and Shipan Kumer Basu may delete the contents or change page link as they already had done several times ever since Blitz has been exposing their criminal activities.
In the Donate Us page of the World Hindu Struggle Committee website, it says:“World Hindu Struggle Committee is a Not For Profit Organization.
“We seeks your generous donations to help tortured Hindus on the planet.

“You can donate via the below methods.”
Then there is the fake address of the organization and an email address, which most possibly is being operated by Mendi N. Safadi. Though it asks people to pay via PayPal and Credit Card – there actually are no such information.
Our correspondents have checked with the Indian and US authorities on the legitimacy of World Hindu Struggle Committee, and it were learnt, it has no registration in any of the countries. It is a matter of great surprise as to how the Indian authorities in particular are allowing this illegal entity in continuing activities by operating a dubious website.
Both Mendi N. Safadi and Shipan Kumer Basu are maintaining connections with Hezbollah and Hamas for many years. They also are receiving monthly “lobbyist fees” from antisemitic and anti-Israel political party named Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) for promoting Aslam Chowdhury, a leader of the party as a human rights activist. Both of them have hundreds of Jewish friends in their Facebook accounts. But the most alarming fact is – Mendi and Shipan are regularly passing photographs and other details of the Jewish individuals to Hezbollah and Hamas in exchange of money. It is anticipated, these radical Islamic militancy groups might be using these photographs and details for some ulterior purpose.
Fresh propaganda of this crime racket:
Being funded by BNP leader Aslam Chowdhury, Mendi Safadi and Shipan Kumer Basu have hired a dubious write named Rachel Avraham, who wrote an article titled ‘Fraudulent Asian election and its violent aftermath: What comes next?’ in a controversial website named Jerusalem Online on January 2, 2019.
In this article, Rachel has quoted the Bangladeshi fugitive criminal Shipan Kumer Basu, who has passed false, concocted and derogatory comments about the ruling Awami League and Bangladesh. On reading this article anyone can easily understand, Rachel Avraham has actually been hired by Mendi N Safadi and Shipan Kumer Basu. In other words, Rachel has indirectly received money from a leader of BNP, a party known to be notoriously antisemitic and anti-West.
A tactic of blackmailing by Mendi N Safadi:
At the end of this propaganda article, Rachel Avraham wrote, “However, if the international community applies enough pressure and rejects these sham election results, it is possible that power can be transferred to a caretaker government. Should that occur, free and fair elections can be held at a future date, thus allowing the people of Bangladesh to have the option of voting for leaders who will offer them a better and brighter future than what the Sheikh Hasina government has to offer them. For this reason, Safadi is now turning to the UN Human Rights Council and the International Criminal Court at The Hague, hoping that they can save the country from plunging into a reign of terror and tyranny, which will encourage the growth of radical Islam in Asia.”
It is clearly understood, Mendi N Safadi, a paid stooge of BNP leader Aslam Chowdhury is trying to mislead the United Nations Human Rights Council as well as the International Criminal Court with the ulterior agenda of maligning the image of Bangladesh and the ruling party in the country.
Why India is sheltering a culprit?
It is a matter of great surprise that the Indian authorities are allowing an Islamist-funded fugitive criminal like Shipan Kumer Basu in continuing foul activities against Bangladesh sitting in India. In Bangladesh, Shipan Kumer Basu faces several criminal cases, including theft, robbery, rape of Hindu widow and fraud.
