    In Tears, We Remember

  • A year after

    Holey Artisan attack was a watershed event for us – both the society and the state.

  • Are we safer now?

    On the anniversary of the audacious terrorist attack on the Holey Artisan Bakery, Bangladeshis may ask two questions: “Are we safer today than we were a year before?” and “Where do we go from here?”

  • A tribute to courage

    On July 1, 2016 Faraaz Ayaaz Hossain, Abinta Kabir and Tarishi Jain lost their lives along with 19 other hostages and two police officers in the worst terrorist attack of our history. They were bright young individuals, brilliant students and most of all, the best of friends.

  • Successful crackdowns, incomplete probes

    Though law enforcers could eliminate a number of militants through counterterrorism operations over the last one year, they are yet to complete probe into any of the incidents. A massive crackdown on militant networks was launched following the deadly terror attack at Holey Artisan Bakery in the capital's Gulshan on July 1 last year.

  • The night the horror struck

    It was a quiet afternoon at the Holey Artisan Bakery in the capital's Gulshan on July 1, one of the last days of Ramadan in 2016. As the sun went down, the Western-style café with 19 staffers in the posh neighbourhood got busier. Diners started arriving and ordering tapas, pizzas, croissants, pastries and cakes.

  • Not lullabies, gunshots filled baby's night

    Shakhawat and Shaila were about to go home with their newborn from the clinic on July 1. But they decided to prolong their stay at Lake View Clinic to let the new mother and her baby have the nursing care given by the clinic for another day.
