Promise to the martyrs

Times National Desk - February 21st, 2013

Thousands of people pledged to safeguard the nation’s hard-earned independence and build a prosperous Bangladesh at any cost, even by sacrificing their lives.
They made the pledge in their letters to the martyred freedom fighters from Shahbagh. In a symbolic gesture, the protesters tied the letters to balloons, which were then released in the air.
As part of the ongoing movement demanding capital punishment to all the war criminals of 1971, letters were also released in different districts across the country.
