Bangladesh experienced genocide in 1971. While the Bangladesh International Crimes Tribunal continue to issue judgements the genocide still lacks recognition worldwide. Today, Bangladesh faces issues of government restrictions freedom of expression online, targeting critical voices. There also have been reports of torture, ill-treatment and enforced disappearances by law enforcement officials. Dalits face discrimination, vulnerability, and stigmatization.
