Shahbag protest: The Bangla Spring In 2011, the world witnessed the Arab Spring. Since then protests for a just society, freedom from corruption, freedom from fundamentalism, from economic disparity, from atrocities on women and fascist forces rocked the world at various parts. While India recently witnessed an uprising of sort against rapes after the Delhi bus gangrape, Bangladesh is undergoing a different uprising. It is a war for a secular Bangladesh, a war against the Islamists and fundamentalists and a war cry for the trial and execution of those who perpetrated unspeakable horror on men and women during the 1971 liberation war in Bangladesh, waged by the secularists in Bangladesh. If Egypt had Tahrir Square, Bangladesh now has Shahbag. The 2013 Shahbag protests, associated with the Shahbag neighborhood of Dhaka, began on February 5, 2013, and later spread to other parts of Bangladesh, demanding capital punishment for Abdul Quader Mollah and others convicted of crimes against humanity during the 1971 Bangladeshi Liberation War. On that day, the International Crimes Tribunal had sentenced Abdul Quader Mollah, known as the Butcher of Mirpur, to life in prison after he was convicted on five of six counts of war crimes. Later the demands widened to ban the Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami party from politics, as its leaders have been convicted of genocide and war crimes. IBNS photographers bring you the images of the ongoing protest by tens of thousands at Shahbag who keep day and night long vigil and the glimpses of violence resorted by Jamaat and the crackdown by administration on the days of strikes in which more than 100 people died now.
