Almost everything I put up, there is always one skeptic who twists it and spews out stuff about current government, corruption, sustainability etc. Yeah, we get it. Bangladesh needs a lot of fixing. This however is about 40 years old crimes that remain unpunished. This is about Justice. It’s not fair that the same men who fought against Bangladesh’s creation and are expressly responsible for the death of hundreds and the rape of hundreds of others still are allowed to participate in politics, while those who fought for the people are reduced to begging on the streets.
Question your identity once. If you are so worried about Bangladesh and believe that you are a Bengali do you not agree that your fellow Bengalis who suffered at the hands of the rajakaars deserve justice? Would it have changed your mind knowing that your aunt was forced into a concentration camp by these same rajakaars and raped by as many as 50 different men while they put boiling hot water, boiling eggs inside her private parts until she died in agonizig pain? Would it have changed your mind if your own father was one of the Martyr Intellectuals taken away by these rajakaars on December 14, 1971 never to be seen again? Would it have changed your mind if your 10 months old little brother was thrown against the wall and killed by these same rajakaars? Or would it have changed your mind knowing your Grandmother died because one of these Rajakaar shoved a bayonet in to her private parts? No, not a single one of these are made up. These are real accounts of real people.
What is so not fair about demanding death penalty? Decapitating a journalist, gang-raping a 12 year old girl and killing 344 other people are not reason enough for Quader Mollah to be hanged?
If you are so worried about the current state of government and corruption, I suggest you take yourself and your fellow groups of skeptics to “Paltan” or “Shapla Chottor” or some other area in Dhaka and start another demonstration. Once our demand at the Shahbag Protest is fulfilled we will surely join you in making a corruption free, sustainable and democratic Bangladesh.
