“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”-Martin Luther King Jr.
The shahbag movement is a long-overdue protest against the war criminals of Bangladesh who were associated with the killing of around 3 million Bangladeshis and raping/torturing around 200 thousands women and children . To demand capital punishment for the war criminals (e.g., Abdul Quader Molla) and to ban on Bangladesh’s largest Islamic party, tens of thousands talented youth have been protesting at SHAHBAGH for last 8 days. Our only demand is to seek justice against the war criminals for their atrocities committed during the liberation war of the country in 1971. While the wikipedia page details about this historic event, the following video summarizes this dark spot of humanity.
This post is my humble tribute to the tens of thousands of people who are relentlessly protesting at SHAHBAGH. And, we will not stop until we get justice.
We, the youth of Bangladesh… all we seek JUSTICE, nothing more or nothing less…
Last but not the least, I would like to express my gratitude to all who are expressing solidarity with SHAHBAG from all over the world. Nation will never forget your contributions. Being a Bangladeshi, I have never been so proud. I am so overwhelmed that I am literally standing tall.
