SC stays HC order for recognising 2,367 guerrillas as FF
Chamber Judge of the Appellate Division Justice Hasan Foez Siddique passed the order on Sunday afternoon, in response to a petition filed by the government seeking a stay on the High Court's verdict. The petition has been sent to the regular bench of Appellate Division for hearing on October 30. On September 8, the High Court asked the government to recognise 2,367 guerrillas as freedom fighters of the War of Independence in 1971. It asked the government to give them proper status, dignity and facilities of the freedom fighters while delivering verdict in a writ petition filled by the guerrilla fighters.

In the petition, he said that the Bangabandhu-led Bangladesh government had recognised guerrilla fighters as freedom fighters and published their names in government notifications following the war. A gazette notification was published in July 2013 by the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs on the list of 2,367 guerrillas as freedom fighters but in October next year they scraped it without any explanation.
