Life has been forced to go back to “normal” for most #Bangladeshis, yet as I struggle to stay on top of the game, I can’t help but think what #ShahidulAlam must be going through right now - 12 days after being abducted from his home by 30 or so men- then shown arrested the next day, tortured and remanded, and then taken to jail without representation in the court.
After all the tears of pain, humiliation, sadness & sheer frustration, I somehow manage to pray... I pray you are in peace and keeping yourself strong amidst this insanely unjust chaos. I pray you are protected against further brutality. I pray there is enough light inside the jail for your mind to play with. I pray and really hope there are atleast few good people in there who are keeping you company. We await your release with bated breath and love you beyond measures Shahidul Bhai- I hope you are well however you are
