Shahbagh protesters place 6-point demand to Speaker

Times National Report - February 11th, 2013

Shahbagh protesters submitted a memorandum to Jatiya Sangsad Speaker Abdul Hamid to press home their six-point demand including death penalty for war criminals including Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Mollah.
A five-member delegation of Bloggers and Online Activist Network went to the parliament and submitted the memorandum to the speaker around 3:30pm.
The demands include amending the International Crimes (Tribunals) Act, 1973, banning Jamaat-e-Islami and its student wing Islami Chhatra Shibir, and all their financial institutions including Islami Bank, Ibn Sina, Focus and Retina coaching centres.
Their other demand is trying political parties and organisations that helped the war criminals.
