Mutiny is calmed down. But in the course of the event- more than 100 officers are dead or missing, a few civilians are also dead and more are wounded, family members of the officers were tortured, houses were ransacked.
Officers were brutally killed or charged bayonet, the dead were dumped into the ground or thrown into the sewerage.
The picture is horrifying and beyond description.
The political leaders have done a tremendous job. We appreciate their courage and commitment, especially of our Home Minister Shahara Khatun.
We appreciate the Prime Minister Hasina’s rational approach to the situation, her personal involvement in the negotiation and appropriate leadership in a time of great crisis of the nation.
We appreciate the prudence of the Army leadership not to side step the political leadership and not to take the actions in their own hand.
We condemn those who to meet their grievances brutally killed the innocent and worthy sons of the nation.
We mourn the death of our brave officers, many of whom had served the nation greatly in their golden career. We also mourn the death of innocent family members and ordinary citizens in the incident.
We express our heartfelt sympathy for the relatives of the dead who have lost their husbands, brothers or sisters in the massacre.
We have no language left but only silent prayer to Almighty for the children who lost their parents and who will remain in shock and pain for long.
This brutality has no meaning. It is not a way to meet one’s grievances.
The government should make a thorough inquiry of the event and punish those who were involved in plotting and executing this heinous act.
