Caricatures of war criminals in Magura

Hossain Seraj, Magura - February 21st, 2013

Amateur artists in Magura have expressed solidarity with the Shahbagh protests in their own innovative way. Artists of the town have done caricatures of war criminals like Ghulam Azam and Abdul Quader Molla and gave those away to protesting groups — “Projonmo ’71” and “Ekatturer Ghatak Dalal Nirmul Committee” in Magura, who have been on the streets from February 7, demanding maximum punishment for war criminals. Artists said they are doing so in a bid to energise the ongoing movement.
Artworks of the cartoonists are a new expression of protest and are boosting the morale of Magura’s pro-liberation populace.
One of the leaders of “Projonmo ’71”, Mehedi Hasan Rubel said that the role of local artists have strengthened their ongoing endeavours.
General Secretary to the Magura district unit of Udichi Shilpi Goshthi, Biswajit Chakrabarti, echoed the sentiment: “Cultural activists including local elocutionists and artists have played major roles in the ongoing movement in Magura against the anti-liberation forces.”
