When Bangladesh was attacked by fundamentals, it took the crinals to justice and hanged them (some HUJI top leaders are also being trialed). Some of the stupids in India say that Bangladesh govt. is a fundamental islamist govt. They should know that People of BD have never elected a right wing religious party like INDIANS (as they elected hindu nationalist BJP) to power.So get your info. right first before commenting. And BANGLADESH also have the best record in communal relationship in the region (way better than india as we never had any incidents like gujrat) and it is termed as the MOST PEACEFUL NATION in the region according to WORLD PEACE INDEX.

India also feels lot of roughness with BDR provoking us often. these are not good signs for anything to mend friendship

Personally, I believe Bangladesh could have been India’s best friend if India didn’t build
‘Farakka’ dam that blocked the major river in Bangladesh just after liberation. It is an environmental disaster for Bangladesh.
We, Bangladeshies also hate terrorists because they are killing innocent people in the name of religion. Bngladesh also faced terrorist-attacks before. India and Bangladesh still can work together if they start to trust each other. And I think, there are no alternatives.

This is insulting and would make the regular Bangladeshi who is not a fundamentalist to feel like he or she is under attack and would naturally lead ill feelings towards India, which is not anyone wants. So what I am saying is that blanket accusations are not helpful and we should look at constructive ways of tackling this problem.

As for what David is saying, well, its all hearsay and illogical. Commuist Party is corrupt but what other party isn’t? How are they promoting fundamentalist muslim Bangladeshis entrance to West Bengal and more importantly WHY would they?

I am sorry to hear you were almost killed in 1985 but how did you know that he was a Bangladeshi gang member? Did he happen to exchange pleasantries with you as he was trying to almost kill you? And who is to say you couldn’t be attacked by some ethnic thug or are all the thugs in India Bangladeshis? I am just making the point that what you are asserting aren’t logical conclusions even if your stories were true. Finally, I highly doubt thugs, whether Bangladeshi,Punjabi, Tamil or what have you cares much about religeon one way or another.

It may come in any form or for any cause but it has one thing that binds it together. When we look at the statistics of those who join terrorist networks around the world, we can find out the fact that most of its members are from low income countries which are not politically or economically stable. When people feel discontent about their life and lost all their hopes to secure a better future, they choose to become terrorist. These kind of people can be easily brainwashed or misled by others for their own benefits. The fundamental needs of these people must be taken care of. The education system must be strengthen to increase the level of understanding about human values. Right religious teaching should be taught to each and everyone. If animals can love humans and vice versa why not a human can’t love another human? Apart from that, the government must take steps to increase the standard of livings in their country. When a country become competitive economically it can lead it’s citizens to a better way of life. I belief that if India and bangladesh can work together as it was one India before 1947 then it can achieve this.

The ruling party in Bangladesh and the country as a whole are moving towards increased fundamentalism. And there are millions of Bangladeshi infiltrators in India who find it extremely easy to cross into West Bengal as the corrupt Communist Party (Marxist) there has promoted their illegal entry into the country. I was almost killed by a Bangladeshi gang member during a trip to India in 1985, and my mother’s second cousin was recently murdered by a Bangladeshi gang outside a train station, just for a few rupees. Its these organized Bangladeshi criminals, in my opinion, who are slowly moving towards fundamentalism and are a major security threat to India. One of my friends in India informed me that Bangladeshi gangs have already started to fight long-entrenched local gangs in the major Indian cities and are now targeting wealthy Hindu families for kidnappings. In my opinion the Bangladeshi migrants are a much greater threat to India than Pakistani-trained insurgents.
