Martyred intellectuals

December 14 is a dark day in our history as countless individuals ranging from scholars, teachers, artistes and journalists among other bright minds of the nation were abducted, tortured and murdered in the most gruesome manner by the Pakistani army and their henchmen.

It is surely commendable that many of the perpetrators were charged for their crimes against humanity and tried at the International Crimes Tribunal. But sadly, even after nearly half a century, the nation does not have a complete official list of our martyred intellectuals.

Early in 2014, Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Huq informed parliament that a complete list would be published by June. Lest we forget, we are yet to receive that list.
