  • The disturbing fact is that India uses the Bangladesh Chankma (e.g. Shanti Bahani) and Bangladesh uses the India North Western people as the Pons in their political games. Reward and punishment simply depends of the nature of the New Delhi-Dhaka flirtation.

    In my book Burma Nationalism and Ideology, University Press Ltd, Dhaka, 1989, (can read at http://www.shwelumaung.org/BNI/), cahpter 9, I have discussed about the 4th World which is are now the internal colonies of the Third World.

    The organization like satp (http://www.satp.org/) called the 4th World freedom fighters terrorists. Is this call justified?

    We, the people of the world, need to solve this 4th World Colonialism in the spirit of ‘We the people’ in this age of Global Citizenry in the States beyond the Nation States.

    Shame on Hasina and the Awami League. They are puppets of India.

    Assam is part of Bengal. West Bengal is part of Bengal. Bihar is part of Bengal.

    Bangladesh should be fighting the Indians for the freedom of Bengali territory from illegal occupation by India.

    Re-Unification of BENGAL.

    One People, One Homeland. United Bengal.

      WAT??? REUNIFICATION OF BENGAL…RU GONE MAD??? My Dear fren,Hasina has undoubtedly performed the best role in her foreign affairs in right time, dont you realize wat is going on in pakistan? They always encouraged and supported terrorism particularly against india, and NOW THEY ARE IN THEIR SELF LAID TRAP ,frequent bombings and attacks within pakistan by Jihadi elements, which are infact their own creation. Remember that, today the Bangladesh exists as an independent Nation Only because of Great mighy INDIA, atleast Hasina realises this truth. And one last thing dont dare to fight with India..then it would be the most unfortunate day for bangladesh, you may not find your bangladesh nemore in the world map ateast to repent mistakes. by the way Bangladesh should concentrate on ensuring survival amenities for its hungry people, rather then dreaming to fight with India.

    Just like India is independent bcos of Great British mighty! India is a pampered 2nd grade power by the US only to counter the lone super power in Asia – the MIGHTY China. India is still a country which cannot even feed its own population. It is the Rural India that is the true India and they are in shambles, result – Maoists are widespread. So Indians need to wake up and address those first before taking self pleasure in their pseudo superiority- you r no better than the rest of Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Bhutan.
