Leader of a ruthless militia that massacred innocent unarmed civilians during 1971, Motiur Rahman Nizami has been hanged for crimes committed against humanity during the Liberation War.
All eyes are on the Supreme Court as it is set today to pass an order on the petition of war criminal Motiur Rahman Nizami,
The Supreme Court has upheld the death penalty awarded to Matiur Rahman Nizami by International Crimes Tribunal-1 in 2014.
He masterminded the formation of a ruthless militia that unleashed terror on peace-loving Bangalees, killed unarmed civilians, raped women and destroyed properties during the 1971 Liberation War.
Towards the end of the nine-month war, the infamous militia -- Al-Badr Bahini -- committed “crimes of serious gravity intending to demean the human civilisation”.
Sensing Pakistan's imminent defeat, the notorious force systematically rounded up, tortured and killed the nation's brightest luminaries to intellectually cripple the soon-to-be independent Bangladesh.
