Background history[edit]

The liberation war of Bangladesh took place in 1971. On 25 March 1971, the Pakistani military attacked Rajarbagh police lines. The Bangalee police, attacked unexpectedly, armed themselves with rifles and whatever else they could find. Most of the police were killed by the Pakistani army. After about 42 years of their martyrdom, the government took steps to hold their memory. The museum was inaugurated by the prime minister Sheikh Hasina, on the telecom building in Rajarbagh Police Lines on 24 March 2013.
