Odhikar was founded on 10 October 1994. Odhikar on its 25th founding anniversary pays tribute to the victims of human rights violations around the world. Odhikar would like to express heartfelt gratitude to all the human rights defenders, international organisations, local networks, supporters and well-wishers who have stood by the organisation for the last 25 years; that have expressed solidarity with it and campaigned against the persecution it faces. On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Odhikar urges the people of Bangladesh to take part in the struggle for establishing human rights and at the same time expresses solidarity with the people who are engaged in the fight against autocracy and for the struggle for right to self-determination in various countries of the world. Odhikar will continue to fight against repression, to uphold justice and for the establishment of democracy and human rights.
