Mural of Noor Hossain in Jahangir Nagar campus F2 R1 141

On the 10th November 1987, the opposition parties in Bangladesh had tried to stage a siege of Dhaka city in an attempt to oust the autocratic general Hussain Muhammad Ershad. Noor Hossain was a young worker who came out in the streets to join the protest. He had painted on his back "Let democracy be freed" but was killed by police bullets. The mural on the walls of Jahangirnagar University in the outskirts of Dhaka was dedicated to Noor Hossain. Photo Shahidul Alam/Drik/Majority World
