Bangladesh Savar Tragedy
Savar Building Collapse in Bangladesh Pictures
Unfortunately we are unable to display any images from the Savar tragedy in Bangladesh due to them being too graphic. Apologies for this.
Illegally Built Rana Plaza Collapses in Bangladesh
Nearly 400 people dead and 3000 rescued alive from one of the worst tragedies in Dakha, Bangladesh due to an illegally built 9 storey building in Savar which collapsed on 24th April 2013. There was permission to build only up to 5 floors, but the greedy owner bribed the local authorities and built 9 floors instead.
Just as things started to get quiet after the riots and protests by Muslims against atheist bloggers, and the Bangladeshi police murdering anyone they could find wearing Islamic attire, an unfortunate event takes place killing many people and injuring thousands. The general Bangladeshi public did what they could to help and save survivors of this atrocity without having access to equipment which would make it easier and quicker to find survivors.
There were women who were in their late pregnancies who were working and found dead, women who had to have both their legs cut off just to keep them alive for the sake of their children, people who were found entangled in the metal rods that were the foundations of the walls of the buidling.
I do not want to say anything more and want to move your attention to the pictures below as these pictures speak more than a thousand words...
Savar Victims Images Speak for Themselves
Take a good long look at this image and tell me what you see? Who's fault is it that these innocent factory workers are buried under the rubble of the collapsed Rana Plaza building in Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh???
Up to 400 people dead and still counting, plus thousands injured in a tragedy that is the worst to have happened in Bangldesh for a long time. This was no natural disaster, this is murder.
Why are people so greedy and selfish that they would sacrifice the lives of innocent workers who are barely scraping a living working over 12 hours per day, some in their late pregnancy, some severely ill, some starving due to low pay and not being able to eat more than one meal a day?
The suppliers, the manufacturers and retailers are only thinking about filling their pockets, while thousands struggle every day to feed their children, to educate them, to have a roof under their heads.
Where In The World Is Bangladesh?
