Bangladesh High Court Orders Preservation of War Memorials


The High Court ordered the government to identify and preserve sites and memorials of historical importance relating to the Liberation War of 1971.

Included in these sites was Suhrawardy Udyan where Sheikh Mujibur Rahman delivered his March 7th speech and the site where the Pakistani army surrendered on December 16, 1971.

The Court asked the government to convene a committee of historians, freedom fighters, anthropologists, and others, to determine which sites should be preserved.

These selected sites should be maintained at an international standard, said the Court ruling, so that future generations may pay their respects to those who died in the War.

Amir Khasru has the details in his report.
