Battle for the Soul of Bangladesh

Photos by Amirul Rajiv

The struggle between cultural activists and pseudo-Islamists over the pulling down of the baul sculptures in front of Zia International Airport on October 15 cuts to the very heart of who we are as Bangladeshis and what kind of a country we wish to live in. Long live our cultural heritage and long live freedom of art.
