They demand immediate trial of those misusing their names and the liberation war

Freedom fighters have said some organizations are using their names and the Liberation War to conduct controversial and anti-people activities, defaming them and the war.

The Muktiforum received a statement from 16 freedom fighters against Muktijoddha Mancha, after they attacked and injured several members of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council (BGSRPC) on Sunday.

The statement said Muktijoddha Mancha took a stand for the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) -- hateful, sectarian, and anti-religious laws passed by the Modi government in India. They even attacked the rallies held by Bangladeshi students in solidarity to the movement carried out by Indian students and mass people.

No action has been taken despite their photos and videos being published by different media houses and students, victims of the incident, informing concerned authorities, it added.

The statement said according to article 25C of its Constitution, Bangladesh is committed to show solidarity to all movements against any ongoing colonial and racist activities in various countries.

Muktijoddha Mancha or whoever is misusing the name of the Liberation War and freedom fighters and going against the constitution, no matter which party or opinion they support, are treasonous and should be immediately sent to trial, it added.

Freedom fighters fought the war to ensure a state of equality, human dignity and social justice, and they will fight to ensure these commitments till their last breath, said the statement.

The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) applies a religious test to whether illegal migrants from neighbouring countries can be fast-tracked for Indian citizenship. It advantages Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Parsees and Jains, but not Muslims. 

The National Register of Citizens (NRC) is a register of all Indian citizens whose citizenship is mandated by the CAA.
