Title:War criminal SQ Chy buried at Gohira, Raozan

Chittagong, Bangladesh. November 23, 2015. [DrikNEWS] - BNP leader Salauddin Quader Chowdhury, hanged for committing crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971, was buried at his Gahira ancestral home in Raozan upazila of Chittagong district on Sunday morning. After nearly six years of long trial, condemned war criminals Salauddin Quader Chowdhury and Ali Ahsan Muhammad Mojaheed were hanged at Dhaka Central Jail in the early hours of Sunday for the atrocities they had committed during the Liberation War in 1971. Jail sources said the two war crimes convicts were hanged with separate nooses at the same scaffold at 12:55am. The people of all walks of life, especially freedom fighters, members of the martyred families and prosecution witnesses were overwhelmed over execution of death sentence of war criminal Salauddin Quader Chowdhury (SQC). There is hardly any helmet of the district where sweets were not distributed, greetings, hugging each other, sharing cheers and text messages were not exchanged. Salauddin Quader Chowdhury was a terrifying young goon in Chittagong who led his gang along with the Pakistani forces to the Hindu populated villages and killed indiscrimnately because he thought the Hindus did not vote for his father and that Hindus were enemies of Pakistan. People of Raozan upazila, the birth place of SQ Chy, hailed the execution of the death penalty of SQC saying it has cleansed the guilt of Raozan, the native place of anti-British movement hero Surya Sen. Welcoming the death sentences, Gonojagoron Mancha in Chittagong also brought out procession from the Chittagong Press Club premises, which terminated at Chittagong Central Shaheed Minar after parading through different city streets. Paying tribute to the martyrs of the Liberation War, the Gonojagoron Mancha activists placed wreaths at the Shaheed Minar and held a rally there. They also thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for execution of death sentences to free the nation of the stigma. Photos: Rajesh Chakraborty/DrikNEWS
