  4. I am a pacifist too.

    I suggest you, if you hate any form of wars, then erase all brutal photos (such as skull of victims photos, blood, weapons, etc). Why? because those photos will make many of people who see them be brutal too.

    If you want to remind them to the badness of war, you can use other ways, such as discuss and make communities. Do not make them see brutal actions.

  6. Hi, I was wondering if there is any person/group which is working on collecting the Oral testimonies of the survivors of the 1971 violence. Is there any research/department/university working on this? I am interested in undertaking a colloborative project on this subject.

    Thanks

  11. I must respectfully disagree with Jack Sparrow. We should never lose the images of war, nor should we try to make them more "palatable". The images of skulls and death should not make us more brutal, but serve as reminders of the potential brutality of people. To see pictures of this kind serve to remind us that we have a moral obligation to teach our children, and to hold dear ourselves, the importance of pacifism. Whether the pictures are of our brothers and sisters or our oppressors, we are all human beings with the capacity to suffer and die. Rockets shot blindly over borders create the same destruction that guns shot at point blank range do. Unfortunately, this is lost to many of the younger generations.
    I appreciate, immensely, the work that has been put into this site and the reminder that we must cling to our humanity, even in the face of aggression. As i have heard it said, "An eye for an eye will just make us all blind."

  17. its really wonderful and very informative for the new generation. those anti independence alliances killed our father of nation bangabandhu sheikh mujib they're still very active in bangladesh to return to pakistan once again. if the generation next really comes to know the reality of the independence and anti state activities of war criminal and killers of father of nation, I believe they will protect the country from extremist militants and will inspire to build the shonar bangla " the dream of father of nation bangabandhu. joy bangla joy bangabandhu

  18. I was there in 1971. We were a Canadian family who could not leave the country. My parents will not tell me anything. Looking for other people that were there...There was an English and Greek family there...It was awful.

  19. The sad thing is , the freedom fighters who did not care to sacrifice their lives to save other unknown people , have been tortured by BNP and Jamate and also Jatiyo Party Gov. these freedom fighter's property is taken away , they have been forced to resign from their jobs and the most cruelty happened in Bangladesh Army, many freedom fighters were killed and lost their job , lost their own property , house , land etc . so many army freedom fighters who were more brave and educated than Ziaur Rahman and Ershad had to lead a life of a poor person with no house and even clothes or good foods , where as Ershad who was a repatriot and Zia who was a hypocrite at that time riding expensive cars and living a life of a king and those poor army officers had to see that and do nothing , because Zia and Ershad took away their property and job to make them pennyless .(this is a true incident) Will Ershad and Zia or their politcal party give back those freedom fighters land and property back ? Or will they give back their Military Rank of honour? Will they or can they give back their health which was harmed by them ??? Otherwise they have to answer to Allah in the Akhira. If these freedom fighters do not get their "Maal" and "honour" back from the people and gov of Bangladesh Allah will never shower His mercy on this country . still now they are threatened by Army .. Will present Gov do something for them?
