Men’s rights activism group Aid for Men organized a human chain—yesterday at 10am—in front of the National Press Club in Dhaka. They demanded justice for Mila’s ex-husband, Parvez Sanjari, who was attacked with acid on June 2.

The human chain was presided over by the convenor of Aid for Men, Dr Abdur Rajjon. The Financial Secretary of the Bangladesh Men’s Rights Foundation Al Amin Hossain led the activists to form the human chain. The special guest of the event was the legal advisor of Aid for Men, Kawsar Hossain. 

The participants condemned the acid attack on Sanjari, and demanded swift justice through the arrests of the attackers. 

The General Secretary of Men’s Rights Foundation Saiful Islam Nadim—who is also the joint convenor for Aid for Men—said: “Ten days have passed since the attack, and still no arrests have been made, which is extremely frustrating. 

“Just because Parvez Sanjari is a man, he is not getting justice in this scenario,” Nadim added.

Sanjari’s brother and lawyer advocate Al Amin Khan spoke about Mila’s stormy marriage with Sanjari, sharing the key dates on which each spouse involved the authorities to seek justice against each other. 

He ended his speech by saying: “As per Mila’s orders and plan, on June 2, Sanjari was attacked with acid by Peace John Peter Halder—who is also known as Kim—a close friend of Mila's. Since Sanjari was wearing a helmet, his face was not damaged, but his arms, legs, have been severely burned. Mila was present during the attack. A case was filed against Mila and Kim on June 4. Till now they have not yet arrested the perpetrators.”
