Footages | The Daily Star


As we work to build a repository of contents on the Liberation War for this non-profit project, we come across a lot of videos, television reports and special documentaries on public domain, especially on YouTube. Covering issues ranging from footages from warfield, details of genocide and rape by the occupation army to Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s address at the UN and Pakistan’s surrender, the vast online resources give a full account of the atrocities the Pakistan army carried out in the then East Pakistan.

Besides different research and news organisations, governments and NGOs, many individuals have created these contents and posted on YouTube under public category. We have merely gathered these contents for this educational project and giving full credit to the owners and those who have uploaded these with URLs of the source posts.
