I am heavily saddened with the news of the demise of one of the greatest journalists of the second half of the last century – Mr Simon John Dring- the eyewitness Daily Telegraph reporter of the massacre during our 1971- Liberation War. Simon did his job in 1971 risking his life. Simon was a person who with his camera, pen and paper actually fought for our Liberty and Freedom.
All the people of Bangladesh shall remain ever grateful to Simon Dring – for his courageous journalism on issues of National Liberation War.
Today’s media people- irrespective of electronic, print and social- must learn from his vision of truthful journalism for the cause of people’s rights.
As a citizen of Bangladesh and a Freedom Fighter- I salute (late)SIMON JOHN DRING.
