President pays tributes to martyred intellectuals



DHAKA, Dec 14, 2021 (BSS) –


President M Abdul Hamid today paid rich tributes to the martyred intellectuals by placing wreath at the Martyred Intellectuals Memorial at Mirpur here, marking the Martyred Intellectuals Day.

On behalf of the head of the state, his military secretary Major General S M Salah Uddin Islam placed wreath at the monument this morning to pay tributes to those who lost lives days before Bangladesh’s final victory in the War of Liberation in 1971.

On this day 50 years ago, just two days ahead of the country’s final victory for independence the Pakistani occupation forces in collusion with   their local collaborators — Al-Badr, Razakar and Al-Shams — killed country’s most distinguished  intellectuals in a bid to cripple the newly emerging Bangladesh intellectually.

As many as 200 illustrious sons of the soil, including professors, journalists, doctors, artistes, engineers and writers, were abducted from their respective residences blindfolded and made them hostage during December 10 to 14 in 1971.

They were taken blindfolded to torture cells at Mirpur, Mohammadpur, Nakhalpara, Rajarbagh and other spots in different city parts.

Subsequently, they were put to death en masse at different killing grounds, most notably Rayerbazar and Mirpur.

Those who were exposed to the killers’ wrath on December 14, 1971 included Dr Alim Chowdhury and Dr Fazle Rabbi, Journalists Shahidullah Kaisar, Sirajuddin Hossain, Nizamuddin Ahmed, SA Mannan and Selina Parveen and litterateur Munier Choudhury.

Since then, the day is being observed as the Martyred Intellectuals Day.

Like last year, the day is still being observed in a limited scale due to COVID-19 pandemic situation.
