The pro-liberation forces of the country will observe November 7 as “Freedom Fighter- Soldier Killing Day” in a befitting manner.

Meanwhile, Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (Jasod) will mark the day as Soldiers-People Mass Revolution Day.

On this day in 1975, three renowned freedom fighters were killed in the name of Sipahi Biplob (soldier revolution). The ill-fated freedom fighters were Khaled Mosharraf, BirUttam, KN Huda, Bir Uttam and ATM Haider, Bir Bikram.

They were shot dead at a point-blank range by two company commanders, Asad and Jalil at the headquarters of the 10th Bengal Regiment in the morning.

The process was initiated much earlier, in August 1975, through the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members.

Subsequently, on November 3 in 1975, the four national leaders were brutally killed in prison. After four days, the then rulers started killing the finest sons of the nation.

About the so-called Sepahi revolution, journalist Anthony Mascarenhas wrote: “The wild jawans (soldiers) killed about 13 army officers, including a female doctor and they also killed the wife of an army officer on the day”.

Marking the day, Jasod will hold a discussion at 3pm tomorrow at the Shaheed Colonel Taher Auditorium at its party central office in the capital’s Bangabandhu Avenue.

Jasod General Secretary Shirin Akhter, MP, called upon all party leaders and workers to mark the day amid holding different programmers at all district and upazila headquarters.
