Shahbagh protesters vow to avenge Rajib killing



Wearing black badges to mourn on Rajib’s death school students chant slogans on Saturday at Shahbagh protest, demanding death penalty for all war criminals. 

Protesters vowed to avenge the killing of blogger Ahmed Rajib Haidar as they continue their demonstration at Shahbagh intersection for the 12th straight day on Saturday.

Rajib, 30, an architect and Shahbagh protest activist, was found stabbed dead near his house at Pallabi in the capital Friday night. This prompted the protesters to go back to their 24-hour movement instead of seven-hour programme which they had declared hours before the death.

The organisers decided to limit the protest to seven hours daily considering people’s sufferings, especially of the patients of two adjacent hospitals—Birdem and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University.

Around 6:30am Saturday, the protesters started the day’s activities with the national anthem.

Expressing their rage over Rajib’s death, they chanted fiery slogans like “Shaheed Rajib er rokto amader dhomonite” (Rajib’s blood flowing in our vein) and “Aar noy protirodh, ebar hobe protishodh,” (no more prevention, it’s time for taking revenge).

Wearing black badges, people from all walks of life including students of schools, colleges and universities were seen converging at the intersection popularly known as ‘Projonmo Chattar’ in the morning
