Kashinagar - "The cave" 

This is a sad story of torture on women in caves prepared under earth. A group of about twenty miscreants of the locality called Kashinagar excavated the cave on the barrage of a river along its bank. A reign of terror has been unleashed by juvenile group of terrorists in Kashinagar union under Chauddagram upazila in the district of Comilla. This reminds me the dreadful days of Pakistani occupation period in 1971. The Pakistani barbarians in uniform were entrenched along the border areas. The trenches were well fortified- they look like foxholes from outside.  ....(Read more)

The events, history's most heinous crime committed by the Pakistani army on the night of the 25th March, still haunt me. I had the rarest opportunity to go through the fearful and horrible experience of glimpses of a genocide.... ....(Read more)
