Hundreds of Bengali people of Toronto braved a very chilly sub zero temperature and gathered at City's Danforth-Victoria Avenue to express solidarity with your mother's clarion call
February 13, 2005
Hundreds of Bengali people of Toronto braved a very chilly sub zero temperature and gathered at City's Danforth-Victoria Avenue to express solidarity with your mother's clarion call. Toronto has never seen such a big silent demonstration by Bengali people in its history. A significant number of our ladies also took part in the event.

After the assembly the attendees joined a Kilometre long mourning procession and met at the nearby Royal Canadian Legion Hall  for a condolence meeting. Toronto has never witnessed such a big condolence meeting which ran for two and a half hours. The local TV channels provided an excellent coverage of the events, linking with the protests and hartal in Bangladesh, in which a brief life sketch of your illustrious father, along with his picture was shown. A few interviews of the attendees were also presented.

The news items along with the pictures were sent to Bangladesh news media. I will keep you posted with our future activities.

BNP wants "Stage Managed Democracy"
BNP-Jamaat alliance adopt a similar policy of terror and repression? Obviously, they also wanted to terrorize the members and supporters of Awami League to abandon the party. It is a matter of profound concern that a reprehensible crime such as rape was used by the ruling party musclemen as an instrument of terror.

Reign Of Terror In Bangladesh
Across the country, Awami League leaders are being killed, often in cold blood, one by one, according to a hit list. The murder of Mr. Manjurul Imam is a part of the grand design of the ruling alliance.

Why is Bangladesh such a troubled country?
Even those who supported the BNP-Jamaat alliance and voted them to power are uneasy in their mind. A pervasive sense of unease and lack of security prevails everywhere. A lot of people spend sleepless nights because the prospects for the future seem so bleak. Many people believe that the country has not seen such a situation since the days of the Liberation War in 1971
