Maleka Khan’s tale of 1971 (Part-1)
When the Liberation War began in March 1971, former organising secretary of Bangladesh Girl Guides Association Maleka Khan like many others also faced the atrocities of war and made it to safety by escaping from Dhaka to her in-law's house in Narsingdi.
But as she was an employee of the girl guides association, she had to come back to Dhaka on a weekly basis. In between, she helped freedom fighters run a secret base at her in-law's house.
In this episode, Maleka Khan shares her experience of the war.
Watch out for more of her upcoming interview where she sheds light on how she dealt with the rape victims after the war as a director of Bangladesh Central Women's Rehabilitation Centre.
