IASG recognizes 1971 genocide

The International Association of Genocide Scholars (IASG) on Monday adopted a resolution recognizing the genocide committed by the Pakistani military during the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971.
The resolution was entitled as “Resolution to Declare the Crimes Committed during the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War as Genocide, Crimes against Humanity and War Crimes,” said an official handout here today.

The IASG, founded in 1994, is a global, interdisciplinary, non-partisan organization that seeks to undertake further research and teaching about the nature, causes, and consequences of genocide; and to advance policy studies on genocide prevention.

Several formal resolutions have so far been adopted by the IASG with the view to recognize the genocides occurred in various parts of the world. The Association holds biennial conferences and co-publishes the scholarly journal named “Genocide Studies and Prevention”.

In the international arena, the IASG resolution is an important recognition of the atrocities committed during the Bangladesh Genocide of 1971. The Bangladesh government has been making continuous efforts to achieve international recognition of the genocide that occurred against the mass people during the Great War of Liberation in 1971.

Thus, the adoption of the resolution is an important stepping stone towards receiving the due recognition from the wider international community. The government of Bangladesh is determined to continue its relentless endeavor for getting more and more international recognition of Bangladesh Genocide of 1971 in the days ahead.
