Faridpur Genocide 1971: An Analytical Study on Sree Angan Ashram’s Massacre

Author(s) Md. Enayet Hossen
Country Bangladesh
Abstract During Bangladesh's 1971 liberation war, three million defenseless civilians were mass-murdered. The crimes of Pakistani armies reach outside of the capital city within a short period. However, with the assistance of their local allies, the Pakistani occupation army invaded Sree Angan Ashram on April 21, 1971. In the history of the Faridpur Liberation War, it was the first invasion and attack. The eight monks of the Ashram were savagely murdered, and their belongings were taken. The purpose of this study is to investigate the question of why the Pakistani army visited Sree Angan Ashram. What was the purpose of their intended attack on Sanyasis of Hindu descent? This dissertation focuses on examining the nature of Faridpur’s genocide in the Sree Angan Ashram. However, the results of this qualitative analysis indicate that the Hindu population was primarily targeted due to their religious convictions, which are pro-Indian and anti-Islam.
Keywords Genocide, liberation war, perpetrator, Hindu minorities, ashram, persecution.
