Thousands of Protestors in Bangladesh demand severe punishment for 1971 war criminals-global-annal

Thousands of people in Bangladesh took to streets once again on Saturday demanding harsher punishment for war criminals from the 1971 Liberation War. Another demand of the protestors was to bring to book the people behind killing of architect and blogger Rajib Haider who was spearheading the protests.

The Rajib Haider’s coffin was carried on their shoulders by the crowd, passing it through to Shahbagh. The funeral also took place at Shahbagh, a major intersection of Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka. Television channels in Bangladesh showed people at the funeral site kneeling down and praying, chanting slogans and raising banners with Haider’s image. An estimated 100,000 people were present during the event.
