Islamic State (ISIS) funder and notorious criminal Shahid Uddin Khan, sitting in London along with his wife and daughters have been conspiring against Bangladesh. One of his cohorts claimed, Khan has told him of buying a number of journalists in the West including David Bergman and Tasneem Khalil for continuing media propaganda as per his directives. Accordingly, an interview with terror network Al Jazeera was already organized while Shahid Uddin Khan had appeared in a Facebook LIVE interview with Tasneem Khalil. His cohort said, “Khan is desperately trying to create total lawlessness in Bangladesh by giving instigation to some of his friends and colleagues. He wants to stage a 1975-type coup in the country”.
He said, “He (Shahid Uddin Khan) has told me, several journalists in the West, including David Bergman and Tasneem Khalil already are hired and they are working in spreading anti-government propaganda”.
Quoting Shahid Uddin Khan, his cohort further said, “We have been told that this government will fall at any time and we should not give any information to the security agencies about the activities of Mr. Khan”.
After carefully scrutinizing Shahid Uddin Khan’s conversation with Tasneem Khalil on the Facebook, it was clearly understood, the duo had already set the agenda and Tasneem had enthusiastically reminded Khan of each of the points during the interview and in reality it was nothing but an arranged propaganda filled with lies. In this discussion, Shahid Uddin Khan falsely branded Blitz editor Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury as an “extortionist” although there has never been any such allegation against this internationally acclaimed journalist ever in the past. Shahid also openly said, he does not like any of the journalists in Bangladesh.
Lt Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan (Army No: BA002428, Course: 8-BMA, Commission Date: 10-06-1983), who along with his wife Farjana Anjum and daughters had smuggled out millions of dollars from Bangladesh and invested in various business ventures in United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom. Shahid Uddin Khan smuggled out millions of dollars from Bangladesh to various countries including United Kingdom. In 2009, he invested one million Pounds in the United Kingdom in exchange of obtaining immigrant status under visa Tier 1, vide VAF No. 511702. The investment was made in the name of Shahid’s wife Farzana Anjum.
Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Bangladesh Police based on secret information raided House No. 184, Road No. 2, Baridhara DOHS in Dhaka, Bangladesh on January 17, 2019. This house owned by Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan was used as a warehouse of arms, explosives and propaganda materials of Islamic State (ISIS). During the raid, large volume of weapons, detonator, counterfeit Bangladesh currency notes and jihadist materials of ISIS were recovered by the CTTC unit. Later three separate cases against ISIS-funder Lt. Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum, daughters and other accomplices were lodged. The cases are: Cantonment PS, Case no 10, Section-6(2)/7/11/12 of Anti Terrorism Act 2009 (amendment 2013); Cantonment PS, Case no 11, Section-25-A, Special Power Act 1974; and Cantonment PS, Case no 12, Section-19-A of Arms Act 1878.
Until busting of this huge ISIS warehouse in Bangladesh Lt Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan and his wife Farjana Anjum were known as a fraud who had cheated lots of people in the country by selling properties with false documents and had smuggled-out millions of dollars to the United Kingdom and to his hidden offshore bank accounts in some other countries.
There are ongoing investigations by the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) as well as other intelligence agencies about series of financial crimes as well as criminal activities of Lt Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum, and a loyal cohort of this notorious couple – Sajjad Hussain, a self-proclaimed agent of Pakistani spy agency Inter Service Intelligence (ISI).
According to report published in The Eastern Herald, Sajjad is currently living in Houston, Texas in United States along with his wife and son. Sajjad has been an active agent of Pakistani spy agency Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) and also was one of the key accomplices of Lt Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan in coordinating with local and international network of Islamic State.
Indian newspaper The Eastern Herald on January 15, 2019 published an exclusive report exposing activities of Sajjad Hussain. The newspaper said, “In Bangladesh, Sajjad Hossain was living a posh life although he does not have any valid source of earnings. His son, Asif Hossain was a student of North South University, where he also was affiliated with militancy outfit named Hizb-Ut-Tahrir. Sajjad Hossain never hesitated in telling few of his friends in Dhaka of his connections with Pakistani espionage agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI).”
It further said, “Although he resides in Houston, Texas and still is living a posh life, this ISI handler does not have any valid source of earnings. His wife, Nahid Parveen Neeru works as a deep-covered operative of ISI under her husband’s command. It is learnt from credible sources, Nahid Parveen Neeru connects with various targets in the United States, mostly Christians, Jews and Hindus under the disguise of a sex worker and extracts information as per instruction of ISI. To the locals, this couple is seen as dubious, while many even believe Sajjad’s main source of income is from his wife profession as a sex worker.”
But, The Eastern Herald could not expose Sajjad Hussain’s connection with Islamic State.
