Freedom Fighters’ List: To be released on Mar 26

Says liberation war affairs minister

Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque said yesterday that a list of freedom fighters that is not "debatable" will be released on Independence Day on March 26, when the country will start celebrations of its golden jubilee of independence.

He also hoped the "revised" list of Razakars will be released before Victory Day this year.

"We will publish the list of those who face no questions or debates as freedom fighters on March 26," Mozammel told reporters after inaugurating two buses of the "Travelling Liberation War Museum" in the capital's Suhrawardy Udyan.

"Those who were left out during the scrutiny have applied for settlement of the objection. We will add their names later if they can prove themselves as freedom fighters," the minister added.

Speaking on the recommendation of cancellation of the gallantry award vested upon BNP founder Ziaur Rahman, Mozammel said a committee has been formed in this regard and it was given two months' time to submit a report.

"After receiving that report, the Jatiya Mukijhoddha Council will sit and consider the matter. Then we will be able to express our views," he added.

He said through the mobile museum, the true history of the Liberation War will be presented to the new generation as they will be able to know the correct information about the war and the country's liberation struggle.
