Two-day photo exhibition on ‘arson terrorism’ kicks off at DU

A two-day photo exhibition on what is described as the ‘arson terrorism’ carried out in the country from 2013-15, centering the 10th parliamentary elections till 2015 was launched at TSC of University of Dhaka (DU) on Saturday.


Tanvir Hasan Saikat, former member of Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) and current deputy social service secretary of Bangladesh Chattra League (BCL) central unit, organised the exhibition to make people aware of the atrocity of arson terrorism.


A total of 38 pictures published in several media and some unpublished on the arson terrorism were displayed on the exhibition, he said adding that number of pictures might be increased at the exhibition to be continued till Sunday evening.


Asked why he organised the exhibition, BCL leader Tanvir told UNB that the anti-liberation war and country forces, militants and their collaborators who killed people by carrying out arson terrorism from 2013 to 2015 in the country are reviving further to do so.


Fearing of further arson terrorism and other heinous deeds, he organised the two-day exhibition to make people aware of the inhumane works.


“Students of the country will resist the arsonists with an iron hand for the sake of people once they try to carry out the same job in the name of movement,” he said, threatening that the evil forces will be resisted at any cost.

Rahatul Islam, who came from Mirpur, hoping a peaceful national election to be held late next year or at the beginning of 2024, said the fatal issues, caused by the arson attacks, again appeared before him through the exhibition.


Though most of the pictures I saw earlier, some pictures were new at the exhibition, he said.


Earlier, the BCL leader came to the limelight through his humanitarian works like feeding floating people for 121 days during the countrywide lockdown caused by the Covid-19.
