A clarion call to save a Freedom Fighter

Please save a Freedom Fighter of 1971. His name is Abdul Jalil. He is clinging to his life in a hospital prison cell. His kidney is not functioning. His heart is failing. His blood is not having enough haemoglobin to keep him alive. He is in the prison without any trial. It is not fair. It is not human. Please do something before the life of this freedom fighter comes to an end. A freedom fighter, who directly fought for this country, does not deserve a death in the prison cell without proper treatment, in utter negligence and humiliation. I feel so helpless, so much frustrated that I myself do not know how to request or demand the release of Abdul Jalil to the present Government. I am asking your conscience, please keep your intellectual discussions and debates aside for a while, please think for a moment about Abdul Jalil, who fought for the freedom of our country, how can he spend his last days of life with honour and respect that he deserves and can die as a freeman in his country. Please mobilize and use your every resource you have to save Abdul Jalil, it is an imperative to every Bangalee now.
