Re: Bangladesh News and Discussion

RayC saab, Shafqat and others, I have a question: If BDR takes care of the frontier with India, who takes care of the small sliver of a frontier with Burma (Chittagong and Cox's Bazar)? How does the army get any operational training with this background? What does the army do other than UN ops? Wou...

Re: Bangladesh News and Discussion

No Sir, my definition of low class has nothing to do with economics. I thought my thoughts were clear, but if you still chose not understand, then let me try one more time. Low class is when you start growing a long flowing beard and tell me that only a Muslim can go to "Behest"! Low clas...

A small group of elite can dominate a society by various means, and I would say that the balance of forces in favour of Bengali nationalism and cultural ...

Re: Bangladesh News and Discussion

Raybabu, Unfortunately, there are no "angels" in Bangladesh. I am related by marriage to a Bangladeshi and have had contacts to many Bangladeshi here in the US. From them I gather that Mujib ultimately was a fool that let his guard down and allowed power to go to his head. He always promo...

Re: Bangladesh News and Discussion

It's only a matter of time before the BD media & public opinion goes anti-India & starts blaming India & RAW for the massacre. Completely ungrateful people, these Bangladeshis. Proves that no matter how you treat them, no matter where they are, Muslims will always stick with their own k...

Re: Bangladesh News and Discussion

it may interest you that the BDs, especially those that are meant in your post always refer to themselves as bangladeshis and frown when they are called bengalis, in an effort to distance themselves from the bengali speaking population of India. Not me, Rahul. I am a proud Bengali and a Bangladeshi...

Re: Bangladesh News and Discussion

I see the mood in this page hasn't changed much! :-?
