Students in China demand justice for Khadiza
Students from the North China University of Science and Technology have demanded justice for Khadiza Akhter Nargis who was brutally hacked with a machete in Sylhet. The protest took place on Monday organised by some Bangladeshi students asking people not to spread rumours about the victim and demanded justice for her. Khadiza, 23, a second year honours student of Sylhet Government Women’s College, was attacked with a machete by Badrul Alam, a fourth-year economics student at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) and a top leader of Chhatra League’s SUST wing on October 3. She was admitted to the Square Hospital in Dhaka in a critical condition. Around 50 students, mostly Bangladeshis from different departments of the university attended the protest programme carrying placardsthat said: 'We want justice', 'No more rumour', Pray for Khadiza', 'It is the time to prevent people like Badrul'. “We came to know about the incident from a student at the School of Medical Science, Sharnan Haque Shahin. We, the Bangladeshi community, here on campus were shocked and saddened to hear of such brutal attacks. What is worse is how rumours about Khadiza having a relationship with her attacker Badrul was being spread to trivialise the matter,” said Saimon Zaman Srabon, one of the organisers, to the Dhaka Tribune. “That rumours is heartbreaking because Badrul used to harass Khadiza for many years which is why we decided to take a stand,” he added. We decided to take a stand for Khadiza. We had a small meeting on October 8 and made banners and placards. As per the plan, we stood in front of the campus on Monday,” added the organiser of the event cum student of the university. “We are far away from our country. We can only pray to Allah for her faster recovery and can seek justice for the welfare of our sister with this small initiatives,” he said. The organiser urged people not to silently watch crimes being committing or record them on their cellphones without coming to the victim's aid first. He also requested people not to spread rumours about Khadiza and demanded the government make sure she gets justice. On October 8, Bangladeshi people under banner of AMRA Sylhetbasi gathered in Altab Ali park in London and demanded justice for brutal attempted murder of Khadiza. There are daily protests in Sylhet demanding capital punishment for the culprit Badrul. Khadiza is now on life support in ICU in Square Hospital while the Badrul is in police custody.
