With a blackout of the chancery complex Friday, the Indian High Commission in Dhaka paid tribute to the sacrifice of untold millions of Bangladeshi people killed and women assaulted during Operation Searchlight, which began this night 51 years ago.
Bangladesh parliament adopted the resolution to commemorate March 25 as Genocide Day, marking the day of the beginning of Bangladesh’s glorious nine-month Liberation War.
It was the day when the Pakistani Army and its collaborators started one of the most heinous genocides of world history.
Bangladesh believes the commemoration of March 25 as Genocide Day is not only paying homage to the great and brave martyrs of 1971 but also creating public awareness against the genocides that happened and are happening around the world.
