The Ministry of Liberation War Affairs has urged all concerned to give information of the Biranganas (war heroines) who were physically and mentally tortured by the Pakistani occupation forces and their local collaborators like Razakar, Al-Badar, Al-Shams and other anti-liberation forces during the great War of Independence in 1971, for including their names in the gazette.
The ministry has asked all concerned to submit applications to the respective Upazila Nirbahi Officers (UNO) in this regard.
Necessary documents such as national identity card (NID) or war-time commander's report or local freedom fighters' report (if any) are needed to be submitted with the concerned application, a press release of the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs said in Dhaka on Thursday.
The UNOs will send those applications directly to the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs along with the opinion of the Upazila Freedom Fighters Verification and Selection Committee.
In addition, if any other person, organization, researcher, women's organization or non-governmental organization (NGO) has information about any Birangana, it has been requested to provide it to the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs.
