In the second verdict on Feb 5, the second war crimes tribunal handeddelwar-hossain-saidi down Jamaat-e-Islami Assistant Secretary Abdul Quader Molla life in prison sentence – the one which sparked off a wave of anger and frustration, drawing people to Shahbagh to form mass protests continuing to date.

The Jamaat had issued threat of a ‘civil war’ the day prior to the verdict of Quader Molla.
