This one though disturbing appears to be more humane on the animal than the earlier video

Misunderstanding led to BSF jawan's killing: B'desh HM

Exuding confidence that the recent killing of a Border Security Force jawan by a Bangladeshi border guard won't have an impact on bilateral ties, the neighbouring country's home minister Asaduzzaman Khan said on Saturday he would talk to his Indian counterpart Amit Shah, if needed, to "defuse the situation".

Khan also stated that an Indian fisherman, who was arrested on Thursday for trespassing into Bangladesh waters, will be released, in accordance with the norms.

Noting that a "misunderstanding between the forces" led to the killing of BSF head constable Vijay Bhan Singh, Khan said, "Steps would be taken to ensure that such incidents don't recur. If needed, I will talk to Amit Shah to diffuse the situation."

A Bangladeshi border guard fired from his AK-47 rifle during a 'flag meeting' along the border in West Bengal, killing Bhan Singh and injuring another jawan, Rajvir Yadav.

A BSF statement said the incident took place in Murshidabad district around 9 am when a force party approached Border Guard Bangladesh troops, standing at a "char" or a riverine in the middle of the Padma river, to resolve an issue linked to Indian fishermen.

The BGB personnel had held three Indian fishermen who were allowed by the BSF to fish within the International Border, but let go of two later.

Shortly after, a BGB jawan identified as Sayed fired from behind, killing Bhan Singh.

There you go, just a misunderstanding, hope this satisfies his unit and family.

Not sure what kind of chanakyan statement you are making, bd awam is anti india and anti hindu. Just because present leader appears friendly to India doesn't mean we can turn blind eye to killing of our security forces.

we should not be fooled just because present leader appears friendly to India. This is plain taqiya and nothing else. The beedis have always hated India and that's perfectly OK because they are more of a nuisance than anything else but when they cross the Indian border, it becomes a huge national security issue as well as an economic problem for us.

what is not ok is sneaking into India, taking Indian jobs, sending Indian money back home by hawala channels and scrounging off the Indian taxpayer's money.

Sir. Agree. But once cannot choose neighbour's. Speaking from second hand reports the current government is doing a fabulous job. If you have contacts in BD you can check. It's not going to be a smooth ride but at least things are not at a dead end.

Why Orange Hair Is Everywhere In Bangladesh

"Putting henna on has become a fashion choice in recent years for elder men," confirms Didarul Dipu, head fashion journalist at Canvas magazine.

"The powder is easily found in neighbourhood stores and easy to put on," he adds.

But the quest for youth is not the only reason why more and more Dhaka barbers are adding beard and hair colouring to their services.

Top imams also increasingly use henna powder colour in what experts say is a move to prove their Muslim credentials as some religious texts say the prophet Mohammed dyed his hair.

In Bangladesh most of the population of 168 million is Muslim.

"I heard from clerics that the prophet Mohammed used henna on his beard. I am just following," says Dhaka resident Abu Taher.

According to Dhaka University sociology professor Monirul Islam Khan, the growing number of henna beards "is a sign of increasing Muslim fervour in Bangladeshi society."

But, he adds, even those who are not strict followers do it.

He explains: "They want to look younger. Even the women are getting fond of it as it makes their hair glitter."
