35 year ago today many of our national intellectual icons were brutally murdered in an attempt to intellectually cripple the new country Bangladesh.
Our victory celebrations after 16th December were being overshadowed by grim discoveries of one after another killing field. Most destabilizing discovery was that of Rayer Bazaar. All of our national top doctors, professors, linguists, scientists were among the eviscerated dead bodies found here.
This is footage of the discovery of Rayer Bazar killing field. This is very graphic. But I ask viewers to watch it. We must see these. (My brothers and sisters whose family members were among those killed need not see the pictures. You already suffered enough and are still suffering).
These killing operation was conducted by Al Badr, a newly formed paramilitary wing of Jamaat-i-Islami and was headed by the then All Pakistan Islami Chhatra Shangha president Motiur Rahman Nizami.
Bangladesh flag flies from Mr. Nizami’s car now a day.
We need to bring this criminal to justice.
