Photos from Hartal Day 1: Bangladesh

The 4 martyred Islamist activists in Bangladesh were:
1) Imran Khan (Islami Chatro Shibir)- 144th martyr

2) Shafiqul Islam (Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami)
3) Mohammad Afzal (Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami)

4) Abid (Islami Chatro Shibir) – 145th martyr

Furthermore, when the whole country was in uproar, some TV stations chose to allot more time to show a group of bloggers protesting the leniency of the verdict, instead of airing grievances of hundreds of thousands of opposition activists. Do we see more than a more protesters than general people here?

 In a shocking revelation, police entered a mosque in Chittagong and arrested activists in prayer. Chandgao Thana officer in charge Pradeep Kumar Das and his men were caught on camera while carrying out such arrests from Katalgonj Masjid.

There was some journalist torture by police as well. This is the photo of police who were in the process of beating Banglanews reporter Sohel Sarwar, who was reported to be badly beaten by police.
