Freedom Fighter Graveyard

The people of Bangladesh fought a war of independence against the Pakistani occupation forces in 1971. 
Members of the armed forces, students and people from all walks of life took part. They fought for nine months and defeated the well-trained Pakistani forces to became a free country. The people who fought against the Pakistani army and took part in the war effort are called Freedom Fighters. Many Freedom Fighters sacrificed their lives for the cause of independence. 

While I was in Bangladesh, I visited the graveyard of Freedom Fighter that was located near Brahmanbaria. Freedom Fighter who were killed during the war of independence are burried in this graveyard.

I was able to meet one of the Freedom Fighters, Abdul Karim, who now oversees the graveyard.

There is also a museum where visitors can learn more about the war for independence in Bangladesh.
