What We Gained at Shahbag Square

The movement has already proved to have a long term impact on the nation, irrespective of the results. If it ends successfully, though that remains a distant possibility, people would be inspired to raise further demands using this experience which may change the future of Bangladesh.

What led a nation to Shahbag and where it leads to?

The ongoing war crimes trials and the fallout from the verdicts justify the necessity of a progressive movement like Shahbag. The movement epitomizes the frustrations of generations who disapprove of the path Bangladesh has been walking since its independence. A country that adopted secularism as its fundamental tenet has drifted too far from its original promise of a progressive society. Bangladesh and Shahbag in that respect share a converging future, as the outcomes of this movement will ultimately determine the long term status of Bangladesh.
