Revisiting the Wounds of Liberation
The latest demand for the war criminals of our Liberation War by the people of Bangladesh to be tried and punished is evidence of the trauma and pent up outrage that the nation has been bottling up for the last 36 years over wounds that have never been allowed to heal. The agony of those who lost their loved ones to the most heinous conspiracies in our history is still overwhelming even today; there has been no solace from the pain as even after more than three decades those responsible for the murders walk freely, some even on the very soil they betrayed. It is a shame that we must collectively bear and are obligated to make amends for.
