hate to see a respected BRFite posting about Indians raping and what not, even under provocation.

may I remind you of a cardinal law of the internet ?

Never wrestle with a pig, you get dirty - and the pig likes it.


OTOH, bd launching a frontal attack on us won't be such a bad thing. would give us a chance to tie up many loose ends ! :twisted:


Rahul,

You mods have tough job so if you feel that my post(s) are creating any disruption please feel free to delete them.

For the particular post if you read it again I have not suggested that Indian's should do all that, neither I have said we would do that. I only suggested him couple of alternatives, which are possible if his entire nation descends on another nation, 10 times larger in size, to burn it to ground. I did that because thoughts like that don’t come to non-indian's mind while thinking about decimating India/Indians. Why? Is it because in our entire history we have never done that to any nation, religion or race but have endured the worst treatment by savage islamic and other barbaric hordes? Have we produced too many Buddha, Mahavira, Gandhi, Nehru and Moraraji Desai? Have world reduced our deterrent into a nation populated with the stereotypical Gandhi and Buddha alone? Have we been too soft and indifferent to our smaller neighbors provocations for too long?


I didn't write that post under provocation but wrote it with a cool head with some thoughts behind it.

The question is intriguing to me that why these internet punks from BD think that 140MM BD's can get into every corner of India and set it ablaze without any resistance or thought of serious consequences? Would he get the similar thoughts on slightest provocation (2 soldiers dead on border skirmish involving a smuggler) against say China?

Another BSF jawan meets his maker as we observe "restraint"
Quote:
A BSF jawan was on Wednesday killed and a farmer injured when Bangladesh Rifles opened fire on them at Mirsultanpur village on the border in West Bengal's Malda district.

BSF sources said a hail of bullets hit the 40-year-old border guard, Sudarshan K G, as the BDR resorted to unprovoked fire at 5.20 am as he went to the border to relieve himself.

The jawan of 123 battalion died of his wounds on the way to Malda Sadar Hospital.

District Magistrate of Malda, C R Das, said there was an exchange of fire between the border guards after the incident but the situation was under control and senior officers of police and BSF have rushed to the spot.

The farmer, who suffered a bullet injury in the knee while he was watering his land, has been admitted in the same hospital.

Two BDR personnel were killed on the Indo-Bangla border at Murshidabad district last week.

One hopes that now that the baggage of Left maotion off, they would do something more in the Eastern regions; if they care about the country and its armed forces, that is.

There is no glory in this "restraint" business. There are absolutely no returns for the nation. This stupidity of "restraint" when unprovoked shots are fired to kill our soldiers only encourages these banana republics to become more adventurous with us. Who will be scared of you when they know regardless of how much they slap you, you will take the moral high ground by showing "restraint." We will only get respect when the rogues know that they will be slapped much harder in return.

Tata scraps $3 bn Bangladesh investment plan

Quote:
New Delhi (PTI): Diversified conglomerate Tata Group has abandoned plans to invest USD three billion on power, steel and fertilizer projects in Bangladesh, after spending four tiring years trying to secure infrastructure support.

Tatas, who made global headlines with the acquisition of Anglo-Dutch steel maker Corus and British auto companies Jaguar and Land Rover, first took their investment proposal to Bangladesh in 2004.

As part of the formal investment blueprint submitted to Dhaka in April 2005, Tata Steel proposed to set up a 2.4 mtpa plant, Tata Chemicals a one million tonne urea plant and Tata Power a 1,000 MW thermal power plant at a combined cost of USD 2.5 billion - which was to be the single largest FDI inflow into Bangladesh since its independence in 1971.

The group had struck a provisional 15-year gas and coal supply agreement with the government, but Dhaka reneged on the commitment following a climate of political instability.

This had frustrated Tatas' investment plans to the point that the group was forced to suspend work on the projects.

"...the (Bangladesh) government will not be in a position, in the foreseeable future, to grant the projects the natural gas commitment they would require," Tata Group said in a statement here Thursdayy.

A letter to this effect was also handed over to the Executive Chairman Board of Investment of the Bangladesh Government, the statement added.

Tatas, however, clarified that the group has other interests in Bangladesh and it would continue to develop them.

This has finally cleared the way for the Chinese to build the power, steel and fertilizer plants. The gas will become available for them without problems.

Rahul leaves for Bangladesh on five-day visit

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's keen interest in rural development models on Friday took him to Bangladesh where he will get first-hand knowledge of the activities of Bangladesh Rural Advancement Centre (BRAC) in various sectors and micro-finance projects of Gramin Bank.
Gandhi had shown interest in BRAC's work and will begin his five-day visit by seeing its several projects. The Centre's activities include micro-finance, women's empowerment, community health, education, legal and human rights protection, and rural programmes, its Public Affairs Director Mohd Anwarul Huq said on phone from Dhaka.
The 38-year-old leader will also visit some projects of Gramin Bank whose founder and Nobel laureate Mohammed Yunus had met him in Delhi last year.
By visiting BRAC projects, Rahul will join a long list of high-profile personalities including former US President Bill Clinton, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Bangladesh in Gloom after Tata, Goodbye

Quote:
Bangladesh business leaders have voiced disappointment that Indian industrial giant Tata Group is pulling out of a proposed $3bn investment programme. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry said other investors might be deterred. It would have been the single largest investment programme in the country.


Quote:
The Tata projects, put on hold in 2006, would have almost equalled all foreign investment seen in Bangladesh since independence.


Quote:
Annisul Huq, president of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry, feared Tata's decision might affect the country's image.


Don't worry about the image, Mr. Huq. It can't get worse. However, you can start by stop sheltering Assamese and Mizo terrorists in bangladesh.

Appropriation of properties belonging to Hindus in Bangladesh challenged
Tue, 2008-08-12 07:04

Dhaka, 12 August, (Asiantribune.com): Human Rights Congress for Bangladesh Minorities (HRCBM), an NGO possessing special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, has by its Bangladesh Chapter‘s Secretary General Mr Rabindranath Trivedi, who is an ex additional secretary to the Government of Bangladesh, filed a writ petition to the High Court Divisions of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh on the complete abolishment of Vested Property Act.

It is alleged that interest groups of political parties in power and individuals by making use of this Vested Property Act, continue to appropriate property belonging to the Hindu community, and indeed to do so with the complicity of the authorities and the influential people.

The Vested Property Act represents a major source of insecurity and of human rights violation against the Hindu community. It is clear that the Vested Property Act (VPA) is detrimental to minorities and to the religious harmony of Bangladesh.

It may be recalled that VPA derives from the Enemy Property (Custody and Registration) Order II of 1965, promulgated in Pakistan following a brief war between India and Pakistan in September 1965. This order was directed against the Hindu minority (perceived as an enemy), and was used as an instrument for appropriating land belonging to Hindus accused of supporting India.

After Bangladesh won independence from Pakistan, President of Bangladesh in his Order No-29 of 1972 ,changed the nomenclature to Vested Property Act ,without altering the contain of the law.

The Government of Bangladesh has, within the framework of this law, taken possession of property declared to belong to the enemy, by appropriating the property of members of the Hindu minority who had migrated to India, or by appropriating the property of people who were heirs or co –owners.

It is learnt that the bench constituted with Justice Mr. Khademul Islam and Justice Mr Masuk Hossain Ahmed of High Court Division of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh, have received the writ petition for hearing.

Former Deputy Attorney General of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh and a renowned lawyer Barrister Nikhilesh Dutta will move the writ case on behalf of the petitioner.

Darn! I seem to have missed all the fun on this thread! And my good friend Sumit Bhai has been send to his 72 houris moreover. :(

Nevermind one joker goes and another one pops up.

Shakil Bhai a lot of people have told you a lot of things about your 140 million and how they will subjugate kufir India.

However, just one point, please disabuse yourself of the notion that you and your ilk are Bengalis. That's a nomenclature reserved for decendants (both Hindu and Muslim) of the flagbearers of Bengal's Renissance which began with Bengalis like Vidyasagar and Bakim Chandra.

You folks are Bangladeshis so stick to being Bangladeshis.

Just so that you get it into your thick skull, this differenciation is not account of geography. Its on account of attitude and culture.

The decendants of Vidyasagar, Bakim Chandra, Rabindranath, Nazrul and Syed Mustafa Ali, (to name few), conquer not territory but hearts and minds with ideas and culture. They set fire to the imagination not to a country. They sing, dance, write poetry and prose. They argue, defend and postulate new ideas, old ideas and revolutionary ideas.

They talk about building and preserving and not about destroying.

What you are doing and saying is nothing but a ******** form of the hate, jealousy and intolerance that grew up in the Sands of Arabia.

By subscribing to such foreign ideas and a behaviour you and your ilk have lost the right to call yourselves Bengalis - so be Bangladeshis.

Incidentally there are many Bengalis who live among you Bangladeshis. And the more prominent ones among them you've either chased out or killed - example Taslima.

Mia shaheb sorry but your howling does nothing but provide comic entertaiment on this forum. I just hope you live long enough here for us to enjoy your rants - and I fondly hope you'll learn something useful in return.

Remember however much you try, your Pakistani brothers will still think you are short, dirty and rice eating non martial race whose men should be killed and women should be raped.

Your country is probably the only one in the world which has no shame. It is closeer to the country which carried out one of the biggest genocides of the 20th century rather than the country which rescued it from the barbarians. It's a wonder you can lift up your face - or in Internet parlance use bold fonts, which is the same thing - when chatting on-line. Have you no shame? :eek:

Just look at how China reacts Japan. And the Japanese probably killed less number of Chinese than the Pakistanis killed Bangladeshis. There's a link on this thread on how many people were estimated to have been killed in those nine months.

Just want to make a clarifcation to folks here about my previous post.

It's not that I'm trying to drum Bengali culture and its superiority or anything like that.

However posters like Sumit Mia have been using the subtle psyops of abrogating for themselves the right to be representing all Bengalis and their culture.

Once that's been done then the next step is to try and show that this Bengali culture is somehow different from the Indian culture.

Finally then prove that the Indian culture is trying to destroy the Bengali culture. Sumit Mia went so far as to claim that the folks in my home state feel discriminated against by this Indian culture which he called "Hindi culture".

I don't think it was just a typing mistake that this Shakil dude repeatedly typed the word Bengali when he meant Bangladeshi.

I would request folks to keep this point in mind while reading posts by these Bangladeshi-sounding posters.

Sumit Mia, Shakil etc are IMO not stray posters but drones similar to the Chinese drones who sometimes indulge in syncronised psyops on the Chinese threads.

JMT and other disclaimers.

Folks

We need a checklist to see if the Bangladeshis show similar traits like the Bakis.

Already 140 million Bangladeshis can defeat 1 billion Indians...thats roughly 1:10 ratio. Paki trait: check!

Quote:
We Bengalis went into war, with certain death in our minds, against the 1971 Pakistan Army, one of the largest in the world and more sophisticated than Indian army at the time


Claiming to something thats not theirs..Paki trait: Check

Illegal Bangladeshi immigrants threat to India: court
IANS
Published on Tue, Aug 12, 2008 at 20:46 in Nation section
New Delhi: Expressing concern over the increasing number of illegal immigrants in the national capital, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday said they pose a danger to India's internal security, and dismissed a petition by a Bangladeshi national against her deportation.Justice S L Bhayana dismissed Razia Begum's petition and upheld the Foreigners Regional Registration Office's (FRRO) decision to deport her and four of her family members back to Bangladesh. “If someone is able to obtain a passport, ration card, election identification card and nationality certificate by illegal means, it doesn't meant that one is an Indian national, until and unless one gets his nationality through legal means,” court said.
Razia Begum and four others of her family were arrested from Khanpur area of south Delhi on December 28, 2007, by the deportation cell of the FRRO.
The police recovered a fake ration card, election I-cards and nationality certificates from them. Opposing Razia Begum's contention that she is an Indian national, Delhi Police stated that her family had come to India from Bangladesh in 1990 and on investigation they could not produce any birth certificate or any other document to establish their claim that they are Indian nationals. In April, the FRRO decided to deport all five of them. Razia Begum and her family members approached the Delhi High Court, challenging the FRRO's decision. The court in May dismissed the petition of the other four. “Deportation is a process and not a punishment. An increasing number of illegal immigrants in the capital are posing a great danger to our internal security,” said the judge. Earlier this year, the court asked the Delhi government to speed up the deportation of Bangladeshis illegally living in the capital and asked for monthly progress reports.

59 killed while illegally crossing India-Bangladesh border: BSF
August 25th, 2008 - 4:18 pm ICT by IANS - Email This Post Email This Post

Agartala, Aug 25 (IANS) As many as 59 people have been shot dead while trying to cross the India-Bangladesh border illegally during the past six months, a senior Border Security Force (BSF) official said here Monday.”Of the 59 people, 34 were Bangladeshi nationals and 21 Indians, while the others remain unidentified,” the official said after a routine meeting between the BSF and Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) in Dhaka.

In the three-day border conference, BSF director general Ashish Kumar Mitra headed the 19-member Indian team while his BDR counterpart Shakil Ahmed led the 22-member Bangladesh delegation.

Security officials from Tripura, Assam, Meghalaya and West Bengal frontiers attended the meeting that concluded Sunday.

“BDR had handed over a list of 1,464 Bangladeshis hiding in India while BSF submitted a list of 263 wanted insurgents and criminals, including United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) leaders Paresh Barua and Anup Chetia and leaders of the National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) and All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF),” the official told reporters on condition of anonymity.

Bangladesh raised objections to India’s proposal to erect barbed wire fencing at 46 points, mostly along Tripura, claiming that it would violate the norms of erection of fencing within 150 yards from the border in those areas, the official added.

The BSF-BDR meeting also decided to launch joint border patrolling to check movement of insurgents, infiltration, various border crimes besides human trafficking and hold meetings at commandant- and company commander-levels every month to resolve local issues.

“The BSF chief told the meeting that the district administration of the concerned border districts have imposed night curfew in most areas along the border as ‘we do not want anyone to be killed’ in the frontiers,” the official added.

India and Bangladesh share a 4,096-km border, of which 2,979 kms cover land and 1,117 km are riverine.

India has so far erected barbed wire fencing along 2,600 km of its border with Bangladesh and decided to undertake flood lighting of the entire frontier stretch to check trans-border movement of militants, infiltration and border crimes.

another farcial meeting. as if BDR will hand over their friends to India. and whats with the 1200
people hiding in India -what about the rest 20 million of them?
joint patrolling is even worse as it permits the BDR to know exactly where the BSF is moving
and tip off its terrorist and criminal friends waiting to cross over from either direction.

we continue to bury our head in sand and wish these problems didnt exist.

meantime the day after swearing in, comrade Prachanda led a delegation to pay homage
to his masters in beijing and met both Hu and Jiabao to get next instructions.

Bangladeshi boy born with two heads – doctor

A BABY boy born with two heads has been placed under police protection in Bangladesh because of the curiosity his birth has caused.

The boy, named Kiron, was born by Caesarean section on Monday weighing 5.5 kilograms in Keshobpur, 135 kilometres from Dhaka, gynaecologist Mohamad Abdul Bari told AFP.

"He has one stomach and he is eating normally with his two mouths. He has one genital organ and a full set of limbs," he said.

"He was born from one embryo but there was a developmental anomaly."

The clinic had been unable to determine whether the baby had one or two sets of vital organs, Bari said.

The baby's life was not in immediate danger but he and his mother, 22, had been moved to a larger hospital in nearby Jessore city because large crowds had gathered at the clinic, he said.

"Around 150,000 people gathered yesterday from different areas. It became tough for us to care for the baby.

"We called police to tackle the situation and they are guarding the hospital in Jessore as well," he said.

The newspaper Samakal said many well-wishers had left money for the baby's family.

Dhaka to settle maritime boundary dispute with neighbours
Quote:
Friday 05 September, 2008

Bangladesh will hold talks with neighbouring India and Myanmar later this month to resolve the outstanding maritime boundary disputes as a UN set deadline for lodging maritime claims is set to expire in next three years.

Bangladesh foreign ministry officials said a eight-member delegation left for Yangon on Tuesday on a three-day meeting from Thursday and will hold talks with India in the third week of this month in Dhaka after a lapse of 28 years to discuss boundary issues.

"We are in the final stage of our preparation to put forward our claim to the United Nations and hope to conclude it very soon," additional foreign secretary MAK Mahmood, who leads the team, told reporters ahead of their departure on Tuesday.

Officials said Myanmar's Deputy foreign minister General Moung Myint would lead the home side in the third round of technical level discussions after its resumption in January.

Dhaka and Yangon earlier pledged to resolve disputes over their maritime borders in the quickest possible time as foreign affairs adviser Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury held a meeting with his Myanmar counterpart Nyan Win in Singapore last month.

Bangladesh and Myanmar experts on sea-related issues met in Dhaka earlier this year and decided to hold another round of talks on the issue in Yangon this year to resolve the dispute.

Officials earlier said maritime border demarcation now appeared crucial as a UN set deadline for lodging maritime claims is to expire in next three years exposing Bangladesh to risks of losing a vast territory in the Bay of Bengal.

Bangladesh needs to lodge claims over its maritime boundary to the International Seabed Authority by 2011 as per the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) by 2011.


Under the convention Bangladesh was required to submit necessary documents to the UN to validate it claim of territorial water, Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) up to 200 nautical miles (nm) and continental shelf up to 350 nm from the baseline.

Bangladesh has decided to end offshore gas dispute with India and Myanmar through immediate talks as the two neighbours earlier this year raised objections against exploration by the country in several blocks bordering their maritime boundary.

so now that the UN sets a deadline for maritime border demarcation bangladesh changes it's stubborn atttitude towards it's neighbours and is ready to negotiate.

BSF patrols apprehend 145 Bangladeshis from WB

New Delhi, Sept 12: The Border Security Force (BSF) on Friday apprehended 145 Bangladeshi nationals who were trying to illegally cross over at North 24 Parganas district in West Bengal.

A boat patrolling party of the force's 18th battalion apprehended the Bangladeshis at 0500 hours this morning from a place 3 km from the international border, a BSF spokesperson here said.

Further details are awaited, he added.

Bangladesh building missile arsenal

Bangladesh is all set to build its own missile arsenal. The caretaker government in Dhaka is in the process of clinching a deal with an integrated European company MBDA for buying OTOMAT MK-II surface-to-air missiles and five launch systems. These missiles can carry a payload of 210 kg and can hit targets 180 km away.

In addition, highly-placed intelligence sources say, the Bangladesh Air Force is negotiating with Turkish arms dealer ASELSAN to buy Shorad (Short Range Air Defence) system and 3D air defence radars during the current financial year.

Bangladesh has already set up a missile launch pad near the Chittagong Port with assistance from China. Breaking protocol, it did not bother to inform India about its missile tests. Bangladesh's missile programme is a recent one. Its maiden missile test was conducted on May 12, with active participation of a group of Chinese experts. It successfully test-fired land attack anti-ship cruise missile C-802A with a strike range of 120 km from the frigate BNS Osman near Kutubdia Island in the Bay of Bengal.

The frigate, commissioned by the Bangladesh Navy in 1989, is a 1500-ton Chinese built Jianghu class warship, and the C-802A missile, according to experts, is a modified version of Chinese Ying Ji-802 (western version SACCADE) with weight reduced from 815-715 kg to increase strike range from 42-120 km. It is this enhanced strike radius that has left Indian security agencies worried.

The radar-equipped missile can carry a 165-kg warhead. Since its guidance equipment has strong anti-jamming capability, the ships it targets have a very low success rate in intercepting the missile. The hit probability of the Ying Ji-802 is rated as 98%. It can be launched from aircraft, ships, submarines and even land-based vehicles, and is considered to be at par with the US Harpoon, the best anti-ship missiles of the present day missile system.

Me thinks the Chinese will ensure the funds to needle India further since all these weapons cannot have a target other than India...

Maybe, the BDs are following their westward retarded cousins and have decided to eat only grass(if they are not already :-? ) and ensure that whatever little they have is spent on ensuring "safety" from the evil yindoos....

It is true that Chinese do not seem to fund for other country purchases(they foist their own junk) even for their tallest and deepest friend and so, will not do so for BD...

If BDs try to take India on then they may very well end up gifting India its newest state in the form of Budhist dominated Chittagong tracts :twisted: . I think we need to make a lesson out of at least one of the neighbours in order to have them treat India with respect and forget about a Chinese knight in the shining armour coming for a gubo and protecting their Musharaffs from India.

9/16/2008 8:06:12 PM

The Pakistanis are at it again. Punjab police has intercepted a suspected ISI operative near the Indo-Pak border in Punjab. The ISI operative was captured near the border town of Firozpur just a few kilometers from India's border with Pakistan.

The man arrested has been confirmed to be a Bangladeshi national named Mohammad Akbar. Crucial information has been siezed from Akbar including a detailed map of crucial army installations in Ferozpur and a diary containing Pakistani numbers.

According to the police, Akbar is a spy who comes to India to gather information from here. He was caught when he came to Ferozpur on the same work."

HNLC camps exist in Bangladesh: BSF
Shillong | Monday, Oct 6 2008 IST

The HNLC, an outift active in Meghalaya, has safe haven in Bangladesh, a senior BSF official said today.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a surrender ceremony of one HNLC cadre, Inspector General of BSF, PK Mishra said intelligence inputs indicated the existence of the HNLC camps in Bangladesh.

The HNLC, a tribal Khasi militant outfit, operating in Khasi and Jaintia Hills areas of Meghalaya is fighting for a 'sovereign Hynniewtrep homeland'.

Mr Mishra said the training centres that are still operational are located at Islapunji, Baramchal, Nooncherapunji, Panai, Amoli, Rangki, Begunchera, Nirlapunji and Niharpunji/Nihari under Maulavi Bazar district of Bangladesh.

''We will continue to put pressure on the Bangladesh authorities to dismantle these training camps,'' the IG BSF said.

Earlier, an active HNLC militant Bantei Sohtun surrendered before Mr Mishra at Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland Frontier headquarters here.

The HNLC militant who underwent guerrilla warfare training in Chittagong Hills Tract of Bangladesh shun armed struggle due to apathy of the outfit's leadership and lack of funds.

B’desh too worried about HuJI: BDR

Tilak Rai Posted: Oct 11, 2008 at 0107 hrs IST
Dawki, October 10 Bangladesh is “gravely concerned” over the alleged involvement of Bangladesh-based Terror organisation HuJI in terror activities in India, and will jointly fight the terror outfit, said Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) chief Major General Shakil Ahmed.

Ahmed met BSF Inspector General P K Misra at the Dawki-Tambil border outpost in eastern Meghalaya on Thursday and exchanged greetings on Vijaya Dashami.

“Both sides will have to work together to fight terrorism and insurgents in the common interest of peace and security,” said Ahmed. He added that Bangladesh was also a victim of the HuJI and would do everything to stamp out the menace.

Underlining Bangladesh's commitment to fighting terrorism he said, “We have already been cooperating with BSF by sharing intelligence related to cross border terrorism activities.” He stressed the need for joint efforts between the BSF and BDR to deal with all cross-border criminal activities, adding that much progress in fighting criminal activities had been made after the two countries decided to jointly patrol the border.

On charges that Bangladesh was habouring India-based insurgent groups, Ahmed said Bangladesh “does not and will not” allow any criminals to function from within its soil. “Recently, we (Bangladesh) handed over 18 criminals at Akhura checkpost and four criminals from across Mymensingh district to India,” he said.

Regarding India's request to deport detained ULFA general secretary Anup Chetia, wanted for several murder cases, Ahmed said Chetia had approached the Dhaka Court pleading for political asylum in Bangladesh claiming that he was a “freedom fighter”. He, however, said deportation of Chetia has been on the agenda at every discussion between India and Bangladesh.

:roll: :roll:
Yeah,right...they are as much worried as Pakis are about the IM/SIMI.

Hold that condescending attitude brother

The short, dark, fish eating, multicolored lungi Dalladeshi is right, he has every right to fear US attacks on mini bangladeshs which are spouting in all corners in India, where do you think the 150 million jihadis will escape to when the tide rises in Bay of Bangal consuming most of their godforsaken country? The chinese, Burmese will machinegun each and every Dalladeshi trying to enter illegally and in the process will get rid of the legal ones too, only mamata didi, pranabda, Patils, Dixits and the cretin Basus( the commies ) will welcome them with open arms.

vamanji, It is not going to fall into the sea just yet. They need to get a attitude adjustment, via the use of coercion if necessary -- they cannot be allowed to become another nuisance like Pakistan, sending in HuJI cadre and pretending they did not. GoI keeps handing copies of the locations of all terrorist camps in triplicate, that BDR and BD government folds those triplications and uses them to prop up a side table with a short leg.

Bangladesh arrests 4 Huji militants
http://www.hindu.com/thehindu/holnus/00 ... 151431.htm

October 15, 2008

Dhaka (PTI): Four suspected Harkat-ul-Jihad (Huji) militants have been arrested by the Bangladesh's elite anti-crime Rapid Action Battalion in southwestern Khulna, officials said here on Wednesday.

RAB officials said the Huji militants were arrested following a tip off and during interrogations they confessed to have hatched a plot to get free their detained top leader Mufti Abdul Hannan from jail.

Officials said the police has submitted a charge sheet in a Dhaka court accusing 21 Huji militants, including its top leader Hannan and former minister Abdus Salam Pintu of detained ex-premier Khaleda Zia's Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), of carrying out a deadly grenade attack on a rally.

Twenty four people were killed in the attack on the rally of ex-premier Sheikh Hasina's Awami League. Several others were wounded but Hasina narrowly escaped the attack.

The militant outfit is also believed to have carried out several other blasts including a 2001 bomb attack during Bengali New Year celebrations at Dhaka's Ramna Batmul leaving 12 dead and blasts on a Communist Party rally in 2005 which killed five people and Bangladeshi born former British envoy in Dhaka Anwar Chowdhury.

Bangladesh banned Huji in October 2005 while the US earlier this year designated it as a "foreign terrorist organisation" and "specially designated global terrorist".

Indian security agencies suspected the outfit's links in the Jaipur serial bombings.

Huji announced its emergence on April 30, 1992 in Bangladesh through a news conference wearing sleeveless olive combat jackets over shelwar-kameez with its leaders sitting shoulder to shoulder at the National Press Club and boastfully described how they had fought in the previous Afghan war.

Keeping Dhaka's Ghosts Alive
By Ishaan Tharoor Wednesday, Sep. 24, 2008
http://www.time.com/time/world/article/ ... 44,00.html

Image
A 1971 photograph from a mass grave near Dhaka that contained the bodies of Bengali intellectuals, taken during the war for Bangladeshi independence

In a sleepy neighborhood on the outskirts of Dhaka stands an empty lot called the Jalladkhana — Bengali for "Butcher's Den." A courtyard, flanked by a red brick wall and lined with potted plants and marble plaques, leads to a small two-room building. Inside, it is quiet and tranquil; a few candles flicker. Kept there are tiny traces of an untold horror that took place nearly 40 years ago: a pair of broken spectacles, a sandal with its straps torn, human skulls and bones. "They speak," says Mofidul Hoque, a trustee of the museum that preserves the site, "of an immeasurable silence."

No one knows the exact number killed during Bangladesh's bloody struggle for independence in 1971 when the territory of East Pakistan severed its unnatural bonds with then West Pakistan, a thousand miles away on the other side of India. At the close of the Liberation War, as it's called by Bangladeshis, TIME reporters suggested the death toll was above a million.

Ask people in Dhaka today and they'll tell you the true figure of Bengali civilians murdered by West Pakistani troops and death squads guided by collaborators was three times that. Bangladesh sits atop an alluvial plain, so those bent on genocide needed only to dump bodies in rivers or, as at the Jalladkhana, down the wells and conduits of local water-pumping stations, where corpses were literally flushed away into the sea. "These are crimes so horrible that even God wouldn't forgive you," says K.M. Safiullah, a retired general who led the independence war effort. "There cannot be unity without this being solved."

Most of the last century's greatest atrocities have had a just, if painful, reckoning. The Holocaust found its redemption in the trials at Nuremberg, Rwanda's genocide in an internationally backed war-crimes tribunal, and some of the architects of Cambodia's killing fields are finally reaping what they sowed. More the shame, then, that possibly the most brutal massacre since World War II remains unreconciled at home and unremembered abroad.

But today there's growing momentum in Dhaka for some sort of restitution. Since its traumatic birth, Bangladesh has weathered coups, assassinations and a legacy of largely corrupt and ineffectual leadership. Now war veterans such as Safiullah and other members of civil society are urging Bangladesh's current government, a caretaker administration of technocrats propped up by the military, to establish a fact-finding commission that could go about the long-overdue work of collecting testimony and starting prosecutions. In recent weeks, they've called for the banning of suspected war criminals and collaborators from the polls due to be held in December, but they face stiff resistance.

The real authority in the country, General Moeen Uddin Ahmed, said earlier this year that the current period — as his regime overhauls the nation's politics and prepares for elections in December — was not the moment to sort out the weighty baggage of the past.

Previous governments failed to prosecute suspected war criminals; others, amid a tangled mess of loyalties in the aftermath of the war, pardoned dozens of Pakistani officers. To this day, the war casts a deeply polarizing shadow, with many still suspected of having collaborated with West Pakistan's suppression of the East.

In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, Ali Ahsan Mojaheed, general secretary of the Jamaat-e-Islami, a powerful political party that sided with Pakistan in 1971, thinks it's better to close the book on a tragic chapter in history rather than risk opening old wounds. After all, many who supported unity with Pakistan were also killed in reprisal attacks. "This is a dead issue," says Mojaheed. "It cannot be raised."

Yet the sheer scale of the carnage cannot be denied. Sydney Schanberg, then the New York Times's South Asia correspondent, described the month-long Pakistani crackdown in March 1971 as "a pogrom on a vast scale" in a land where "vultures grow fat." (He would famously win a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting five years later on Cambodia's killing fields.) Passing through the charred husks of villages razed by West Pakistani troops, he heard whispered story after story of mass executions of Hindus, college students and anybody suspected of Bengali nationalism. Neighborhoods were gutted as Bangladesh's main cities fell to a fifth of their existing population; 10 million refugees fled west to India. Almost every Bangladeshi household has a tale of loss and suffering. Around 400,000 women, by some estimates, were raped.

At the Jalladkhana, Hoque fights simply to keep the memory of those days alive. He reckons that there are thousands of other sites like this dotting Bangladesh's lush countryside. By one such spot north of the capital, he recalls, a stone epitaph erected there is inscribed with a bare message: "Passerby," it reads, "please stand here a moment."

These fellows in the Jamaat-e-Islami want to "close the book" because *they* are the ones who are responsible for the genocide along with the Pakistani Army -- these genocidal vermin need to be flushed out of Bangladesh before it can stabilize.

I wager that after this " Gen. Moeen Udeen" who seems to be not ideologically opposed to the JeI (going by his behaviour and his refusal to cooperate with India since he assumed control) conducts the elections, the next islamist govt. will be just as uncooperative and intransigent as all the previous ones. In fact, any "democratic" govt. in Bangladesh can only assume power if it has the support of the JeI if we go by the past elections -- their political control of Bangladesh is almost total it looks like.

The JeI are also the ideological brothers of HuJI, which has been responsible for a lot of terrorist attacks against India in the past few years -- the Hyderabad bombings, and many inside Bangladeshi territory even.

the credit should go to richard nixon for browbeating India and forcing a quick retreat
before we could stick around a while and support Mujibur in draining the swamp. rich
rewards like road and rail corridors could have been taken on long term lease. maybe
even a indian operated port south of mizoram

instead we did all the hard work and threw away the reward.
