The Daily Star in the house too
There is a long history of Pakistan's efforts to deny its guilt and stop the trial and punishment of the ones involved in the genocide in 1971.
With the help of local collaborators, Pakistan committed atrocities and genocide over nine months in Bangladesh, and 44 years later when these collaborators were tried and punished by the International Crimes Tribunal, Pakistan expressed anxiety for the trial.
The Daily Star Books has published a book, "Genocide They Wrote", to make present and future generations aware about how Pakistan committed the genocide.
President Abdul Hamid unveiled the book on Friday.
The book is a compilation of a series of reports that were run following an unexpected denial of the very occurrence of the genocide by a section of the Pakistani leadership.
The strength of these reports is that they are mostly based on Pakistani sources.
It is an audio-visual book written by Inam Ahmed and Shakhawat Liton.
To authenticate history, audio-visual clips were incorporated in the book through the use of Quick Code or QR Code. Anyone interested to see the video clips should download a QR barcode scanner app from Google Playstore or iStore to scan the barcode.
The book will be found at The Daily Star Books at stall 335-336 in the Amar Ekushey Granthamela.
In addition, 28 other books are on sale at the stall.
Of these, From Two Economics to Two Nations by Rehman Sobhan, Abul Mansur Ahmader Shrestha Golpo, Beyond the Lines by Kuldip Nayar, 1971 by Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay, and Humorously Yours 2 by Naveed Mahbub have drawn people's attention most.
Meanwhile, 118 new books arrived at the fair yesterday.
A discussion on "Silver Jubilee of Bangla Academy: Translation from Past to Present" was also held at the Bangla Academy, where translator Prof Abdus Selim presented a paper.
