Unjustly imprisoned on false charges for 22 months from 2007 to 2008, Dr. Alamgir, the former Minister of Planning was promised freedom if he would publicly support the military junta that had seized power, and continued imprisonment on false charges if he refused. He refused, but was finally able to triumph in the end. As he stated in the Background to his arrest and imprisonment, For people loving and yearning for freedom everywhere, this journal will provide telltale signs of an undemocratic government and the institutions such a government is bent to manipulate or destroy. The moral of the story and the tale is that it is only through raising universal consciousness against persecution and tyranny that we humankind can give a better account of ourselves as agents and beneficiaries of civilization. It is by fighting injustice anywhere that we can establish justice everywhere.
