81 days — a man was abducted from his home; tortured overnight at the DB headquarters; put in prison on bogus charges; smeared through social media; denied bail again and again; now being denied a hearing. Shahidul still in prison for the crime of journalism.

Replying to @courtneyr
“If Bangladesh continues to imprison journalists and not allow them to work freely and without fear of retribution, the country cannot claim that elections in December are free and fair.”

Shahidul Alam's only crime was to give an interview on about what's happening in Bangladesh. Now he's sitting in jail. Where is the rest of the world?

A stencil just gone up fresh in Birmingham's Bangladeshi community. Shahidul Alam is a photographer I met a few times who is a great inspiration. He has just been released from jail after speaking truth to power
