Hundreds protest at Gulshan against Khaleda


Dhaka: Dec 29; Hundreds of protesters have formed human chain in Dhaka in demonstration against the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chief Khaleda Zia's statement on the number of 1971 freedom fighters.

According to The Daily Star, road at Gulshan-2 intersection in Dhaka has been blocked by protesters including freedom fighters and several political and cultural activists.

Zia, whose office is just a few minutes from Gulshan-2, has drawn widespread flak after she questioned the number of martyrs of Liberation War.

Pro-liberation forces have been tagging her as a "Pakistan lover" and many have demanded that she leave politics and the country as well.
