Happy Independence Day,

I was born at Dhaka when the heavy fighting was ongoing in and around the city. Even when my parents were on their way to Holy Family Hospital, there was a war-craft flying low and looking for enemies. Have the air pilot been too suspicious, there could be a different history for me and my family.

I cant even imagine what tension your parents would have gone through during that period, especially with a new born.

But Allhamdullilah you guys made it.

Thank you Bro!

Yes, it leaves a quite a few story to tell my kids and their kids one day. Because my mom's pregnancy they decided to stay in Dhaka while everyone else went to Madaripur, nanabari. My father was a teacher in Residential Model and they used to live in there in teachers' residence. Due to lot of tension in and around Geneva Camp area they left and started staying in Azimpur. The whole building was empty and my parents were hiding on the third floor keeping everything dark and quiet, collapsible gate always locked. Very different experience for them. :flag::flag:

1/3 Dilu Road. Anyone who lived In Dhaka and was some how involved in the freedom fight for Sector 2, K force during '71, would know this house. Yes, we survived somehow - blessing from the Almighty.

May the nation be blessed, may we have a nation as the fallen dreamed. Shonar Bangla.

My father and his younger brothers were taken from their home despite my Grandfather offering himself. They were lucky that they were only beaten up as it was towards the end of the war. Although my Grandfather 's father who was a retired Army official was killed.

My father in law was a student at the time of war. His mother had asked him to come home as she sensed something which turned out to be a miracle. All of his friends at his hostel were killed by the Pakistani army who were then ordered to kill all University students of Dhaka University.

It will also show people who are not fully aware of Bangladesh’s hard fought liberation.

Adam bhaiya,

This is a extremely important clip of the Dhaka university massacre/shoughtering of the students by Pakistan Army on the very specific day of March 26th, 1971. This is the ground of Jagannath Hall, a dormitory of DU. When the gun shots went off and the body of the lined up executed students falling on the ground, watch the cows on the filed run...due to the popping sound of the guns!
This film was recorded by a engineering professor of the University of Engineering and Technology (today known as BUET)from his faculty apartment rooftop or veranda. He had to hide the tape during the 9 months of the war, until the Pakistan Army surrender.

Our great film maker artist the late martyr Zahir Raihan (RIP). He is one of pride and joy, he was a legend of to be Bangladesh.
Zahir Raihan was taken from his house on the night of 25th March, I believe and slaughtered among others at the infamous Rayer Bazaar Boddhobhumi (sloughter (humans) fieid) in DHaka...His family never found him as there were almost a thousands of rotting corpse of murdered Bengalis at the field!

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ni0ZRzKJkUc" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Clip from Shahid Zahir Raihan's last and unfinished film 'Let There be Light'. It was never finished because Raihan was murdered by Pakistan Army's collaborators tthe Al-Badr and Al-Shams brigades aka Razakaars. The film did not have sound added at that time.

The suffering that the Pakistani army did is unforgivable. May all involved get justice.

I wonder what Paks know about 1971.
What they feel, the mass educated people about 71 ?
There was a time they could get away with it reading or not reading on their academic books but now with internet there are many reliable sources to learn about it.

From what I learnt from Pakistanis their education system teaches them that this war was fought against India. However they forget to mention their soldiers torture and aggression against innocent people.

Sadly some Pakistanis I have come across who have read the Internet on 1971 say it’s all false propaganda against their army.

These people also blame the army’s reason for such acts was due to the Mukti Bahini as a counter action, which they didn’t start.

I consider these people as blind as Israelis who always blame Hamas for the whole situation, and their Army and country are innocent.

Firing unguided rockets from hospitals isn't really an effective medium to get your point across.

Guys,
If you really want to know few war stories, expeditions, of '71. Buy or get a hold of a book called "Brave of Heart: The Urban Guerilla Warfare of Sector-2 during the Liberation War of Bangladesh" - Habibul Alam. Bir Protik. Actually buy two and give one to your parents.

That book is not like a normal book. It is our history. It is a collection of incidents, coming from 1st hand. Make sure you have a tissue box with you (or may be not).

For many many years after the liberation war, several times, the retired mukti bahinis of Sector 2, would meet at our house 1/3 Dilu Road. We as kids, would sit around them and listen to stories till late nights. Tears rolling, smiling, laughing went on and on.

Dear guys,

In post #25, this morning I realized that one of the YouTube clips that I initially posted about the late Shahid Zaheer Raihan - it was titled as something like 'Zaheer Raihan's Dialogues About 'Paki' Propaganda'. Zaheer Raihan did not address Pakistanis as Pakis. It was labeled by the YouTuber who posted the clip on YouTube.

It is absolutely not cool, appropriate or acceptable to address any person or group of people with derogatory names or terms. We know that British Pakistanis in England are often called as 'Pakis' by racist people over there to belittle the sub-continental British. It is NOT cool to hurt or insult your fellow man or any living being, God's creation by insult even if you or I are atheist for that matter. And it is absolutely not acceptable, just like we Bangladeshis would not tolerate being addressed as 'Bangers' or 'Bangis' or 'Bangla' or whatever. Call a Pakistani a Pakistani, and a Bangladeshi a Bangladeshi or Bangali and Bengali is fine too.
Also calling anyone Paki or Malu is absolutely against banglacricket.com forum rules.

I did not pay attention to that detail in the title of the clip, and I missed it somehow. It was a big mistake on my part. Please forgive me if I accidentally and unintentionally offended anyone of you. It was never my intention, I get carried away while posting historical emotional clips and slipped.

Yes, Siraj. It was a genocide, a 'systematic' and 'organized' state/military operated ethnic cleansing. I am glad you have now learned something about the bloody and painful history of Bangladesh, and her people's struggle and sacrifice that made the country a reality. I am sure you will continue to search and learn more about Bangladesh's history.
Best wishes to you.

I am just curious, is your mom by any chance the great artist/sculptor Shamim Sikdar? In another word, are you the nephew of the great late revolutionary communist leader of Bangladesh, Siraj Sikdar (RIP)? I don't know why, but something made me wonder just seeing your name in the 'Introduce Yourself' thread.
Nonetheless, you bear the names (a. your real name and b. your BC name) of two the greatest leaders of the twentieth century from the sub-continent.

I agree that you shouldnt address people by such racial names. Its racist and idiotic to do so IMO.

But during the BD vs Ind T20 final recently in Sri Lanka a so called Bangladesh as Chokledesh after the defeat. I feel that it is as bad if not worse than calling others racially incorrect labels like what you have mentioned.

You wouldnt tolerate if someone was making fun of your Mother's name, how people could let bypass of others calling our Motherland's name like that is kind of disappointing

Absolutely! That is absolutely unacceptable. At the end of the day, you know that it is always the most pathetic, loser and most unsecured ones that call people insulting names, hurl insults, attack and abuse the lone and the defeated. Because they simply lack class, self dignity and grandure - because if one has self dignity, he or she shall never belittle another.

Excellent suggestions! Operation Search Light.

Adam bhaiya, Shamim khala is a very distant aunt of mine. I believe she is a blue belt Karate and Judo martial artist. She kicked some loser maastaans' (4 of them) butts in front of the Malibagh Mouchak Market in 1976, literally like FDC Bangla movie, those losers insulted her, because she was wearing jeans and a tie-dye t-shirt. I was a little boy back then. Later I started to worship her personality. I admired her courage and adored her sculptural work in the 80's as an aspiring architect myself. Siraj Sikdar mama once took refuge in our house in 1973 I believe for 2 nights, while he was on the run as a Nakshaal leader. He ate roti and fish for dinner in our house. He was murdered along with a few of his comrades soon after that, I believe in Kushtia or Jessore.

I wouldnt want to mess with that lady. Even in the early 1990s she looked pretty scary to me as a young teenager :D But she is definitely multi talented. Sad to hear about your Uncle. I am assuming Shuvro Bhai is your cousin.
