Tower Hamlets MP calls for calm in borough following violent clashes in Bangladesh

The MP, who represents Bethnal and Bow and also serves as the shadow minister for international development, called a debate in Parliament about the spate of violence that has erupted in Bangladesh.

Dozens of people have died in skirmishes as party supporters and activists clashed after death sentences were dished out to Islamist party leaders accused of war crimes dating back to the fight for the country’s independence in 1971.

The unrest has led to a series of weekly demonstrations in Whitechapel’s Altab Ali Park in Whitechapel Road.
