Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that the government is trying to get recognition of March 25 as the International Genocide Day.
The minister said this to journalists after a program marking the Independence Day on Sunday morning.
“We have written letters to international persons, organizations and states seeking recognition of March 25 of 1971 as the International Genocide Day”, he said.
The Pakistan occupation forces committed killings on the dreadful night of March 25 in 1971 and continued the killings for nine months, he said.
