Andalib Elias, Deputy High Commissioner of Bangladesh posted in Kolkata, said, ‘The genocide that the Pakistani army started in Bangladesh on March 25, 1971, lasted for nine months. The massacre was one of the worst massacres in history. Under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, we got freedom in exchange for the blood of 3 million martyrs. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, efforts are underway to get international recognition of the genocide in 1971 and this initiative will surely succeed in the United Nations.
