Remember Tahrir Square? The legendary Egyptian Revolution in 2011 against the then president Hosni Mubarak? Sitting in the middle of Dhaka, Bangladesh, I am sensing another Tahrir Square in Bangladesh, right in Shabag, Dhaka.
Several hundred people staged a sit-in at Shahbagh on Tuesday demanding capital punishment to Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Mollah for war crimes. The tribunal has sentenced Abdul Auader Mollah for lifetime imprisonment, which a huge portion of people has rejected.
I wouldn’t make this a long post. Here are the related links for you to check out:
