Can somebody explain the historical context of what's going on in Bangladesh? Muslim leaders being convicted for war crimes, including rape, sounds a bit strange. What happened during the liberation war?

Maybe lucid or sis Cinders can shed some light on this?

It depends on who you ask.
You have the secular elite that rule Bangladesh now. They hate Islam and love Hinduism.
You have the religious, that love Islam and hate Hinduism.
During the war in which Bangladesh got independence from Pakistan. The religious parties were Anti Independence.
Pakistan was accused of war crimes, some true and some clearly false.
The secular elite have always accused the Ulima of being linked by association to the crimes commit ed by Pakistani soldiers because the Ulima were against independence.
Now the secularists have gone beyond stating the Ulima have links by association to alleged crimes commit ed during the independence war and have sentenced some.
I think it is political. Mixture of mud slinging and electioneering.

To an outsider with no knowledge of the past, that seems to be the case - either sides mudslinging. What I want to know is whether the people convicted really did what they've been convicted for? I know how the subcontinent works so it's difficult for me to believe official statements. Them being ulema makes it more difficult.

The answer is both yes and no depending on what you mean by the above.

They are accused of being against interdependence. That is true. No one will deny that bit.

The secularist would say that would mean "If they are not with us, they are with them".
Them being the Pakistani Army.

Well you can argue for that too. This really depends on your prospective.

The secularist say the Pakistani army committed a lot of crimes in that war.
This is where there is a difference.
The secularists will give some massive unbelievable figures.
And the Ulima would say none of that is true.
I would say the truth lies some place in between. Bad things were done, but there was also a lot of exaggeration.

The question is, are the Bangladeshi Ulima legally or morally responsible for the actions of Pakistani soldiers during the independence war?

For the past 42 years the secularist elite that rule Bangladesh have been saying the Ulima hold a Moral responsibility for the crimes of Pakistani soldiers, but they never said they hold a legal responsibility.
So the secularists used crimes that the Pakistani Army was accused of doing to morally sideline the Ulima but never to arrest them.
The change which has happened now is to say the Ulima have a legal responsibility.
The secularists have always been saying Pakistani soldiers carried out murders and rapes. They have always been saying the Ulima shared in the blame for the actions of Pakistani soldiers because the Ulima was against independence.
What has changed now is to say the Ulima are legally responsible.
So if a Pakistani soldier committed a Murder or rape, because the Ulima supported the Pakistani Army the Ulima are guilty as an accessory to the crime so should be executed.
