    More from Ruhelahmed

    Bangladesh. Sahabag. Bomb explosion by Jamaties.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ruhelahmed told me, as to why he has gone to Dhaka, Bangladesh from his current home in Austin, Texas, 'I was born and raised in Bangladesh and actively participated in our War of Liberation as a Freedom Fighter guerrilla. I was wounded towards the end of the war and still carry the injuries in my body. The Shahbag Movement remains neutral and apolitical in characteristic, The protest continues and young citizens have vowed that they will continue to occupy the square till the last of war criminals are hanged. So far the the new generation protesters got some results and it seems that they are very determined to get what they want.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Bangladeshi woman celebrated the international women's day by joining the non stop demonstration at Sahabag square, while they were staging the protest, Molotov cocktails were lobbed by the Jamaties injureing three Police personal and demonstrators. one can see the reaction after the explosion at exactly at 6 minutes 24 seconds of the clip.

    In any normal situation an explosion like this would have created a panic situation and chaos, but not in Shahbag. The atmosphere is different and patriotism is rampant and people are determined about their goal
