Bangladesh: A three-minute silence to demand death to war criminals in Bangladesh

News Dhaka, Bangladesh - 12 February 2013

Millions of people observed a three-minute silence across Bangladesh on February 12, 2013 to express solidarity with the demand of death penalty for all war criminals.

Beginning at 4pm, the event saw people of all backgrounds standing up to demand the highest punishment for those who committed crimes against humanity during Bangladesh’s 1971 Liberation War.

The Shahbagh protesters, who called for the silence, continued their demonstration for the eighth straight day on Tuesday.

Hundreds of youths imbued with the spirit of the ’71 started to converge the protest venue, which is known as ‘Projonmo Chottor’.

Like previous days, people from all walks of life irrespective of age, sex and class gathered at the protest venue wholeheartedly since the morning to express solidarity with the protesters.

They were joining the demonstration chanting various slogans demanding capital punishment for all war criminals including Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami assistant secretary general Abdul Quader Mollah.
