Protesters from the main stage of the movement at Shahbagh, christened 'Ganajagaran Mancha’ have announced a candle-lit vigil after their three-minute silence programme across the country on Tuesday.
Candles will be lit at 7pm on Thursday across the country to press for execution of all war criminals, including Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Molla.
The demonstrators have called everyone to light a candle each at that time wherever they are.
Thousands of people at the demonstration welcomed the programme with a deafening sound of applause.
Also, songs of protest would be sung at 3pm on Wednesday on the main stage of the ongoing agitation at the ‘Prajonmo Chattar’ at Shahbagh intersection.
