The number of inhumane activities is increasing day by day at an alarming rate. An incident at Begumganj Upazilla in Noakhali district left the whole country speechless. The victim was gang-raped, brutally tortured with some men stripping her clothes off and filming the incident on mobile phone.
Netizens are protesting the rape incident so that the convicts are given exemplary punishment. Bangladesh national cricket team all-rounder has also joined the protest on social media.
Shakib took to Facebook and wrote, "I am the son of a wonderful woman, husband to a wonderful woman, brother to a wonderful woman and the father of two young wonderful women too.
I cannot stay silent against the heinous wrong doings, especially rape and murder, these savage beings are committing against women and children irrespective of their age or religion on a daily basis and neither should you. I stand against all kinds of hatred and violence against human beings."
Shakib feels that we can take inspiration from the freedom fighters who fought valiantly for the independence of the country. "It is our duty to protect and fight for each others' rights just as our freedom fighters fought for our rights when it mattered most," he wrote.
"Let us join hands and fight against this moral plague in our country and protect our women and children so they can dream and live their lives without fear. Remember, if we let this barbaric behavior and mentality continue, one day the victim may end up actually being one of our loved ones," Shakib concluded.
