Let us take this opportunity to mourn the ones who were so harshly and hastily taken away from us

Forty-four years ago, our country observed one of the darkest chapters in its history -- as four of Bangladesh’s founding leaders were mercilessly assassinated. 

Murdering some of the greatest spirits of our nation, this act of barbarity left an indelible stain on Bangladesh.

Syed Nazrul Islam, Tajuddin Ahmed, Mansur Ali, and AHM Qamruzzaman had played greatly important roles as our people struggled for independence against the oppressive Pakistani regime, and they were amongst the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s most trusted people. 

What was especially heinous about their murder is the way it was carried out, as they were left vulnerable and alone within Dhaka Central Jail on that fateful day on November 3, 1975.

While the current government has gone above and beyond in bringing these killers to book, and trying them for their crimes against humanity, some of these killers are, to this day, on the loose as they evade justice.

We hope that, one day, every single individual involved in the jail killings will be punished for what they have done, and the nation will find solace in the fact that justice has been served.

Let us take this opportunity to mourn the ones who were so harshly and hastily taken away from us, and remember the contributions they made, in making the dream of Bangladesh as a free and sovereign nation a reality.
