For the last many years, Bangladesh has been facing a very painful situation of conflict and confrontation between Hasina Wajid and the Islam-loving population of Bangladesh. Hasina is devotedly striving to introduce Bangladesh as a secular state to the world around whereas the religious forces there are not willing to give in before her illogical desire. This situation has given birth to various self-styled Islamic State groups or so-called offshoots of the al-Qaida network. Bangladesh has been reeling from a growing wave of attacks since the turn of the year, many of which have been claimed by the self-styled Islamic State group or an offshoot of the al-Qaida network however Sheikh Hasina’s has been consistently denying presence of any such groups but the present wave of violence does not support her denial. It is also a fact that inwardly Hasina would be happy over the situation because as a result of this present wave of violence she would get more opportunities of crushing the religious elements in the name of investigation. And above all she would get more chances of pleasing Mr. Modi and other Hindu extremists across the border. In short things are going to get worse for the religious people of Bangladesh and better for Modi-loving Sheikh Hasina. The religious people of Bangladesh must be prepared for more hangings in the name of ‘action against violence’. A lady who is so revengeful on those who opposed the partition of Pakistan on religious basis 45 years back would be harder on those who are protesting against secular trends in present day Bangladesh. In short Bangladesh is going to be converted into a bloody battle field very soon; moreover the Modi government shall take full benefit of the situation. The agents of R&AW shall become more active and shall add fuel to fire with their conspiracies.
We must not forget the reality that India has a very old desire of wiping off the identity of Bangladesh by merging it in India. In December 2015, a report was published in various Indian and Bangladeshi websites with the title, ‘India has a long term plan to annex Bangladesh in a way or other in future’. The report said, ‘India does have plans to annex different regions of Bangladesh in the near future and is augmenting its armed forces and paramilitary forces in the Bengal, Assam and Tripura to do just this. India is gathering strength in all such region so that one million Indian troops will soon be positioned to attack six points along the India-Bangladesh border to capture the desired parts of the Bangladesh territory including the Rangpur region, the Khulna region, the Sylhet region, the entire Chittagong region.’ Different pro-India Bangladeshi scholars have been raising a question since long; why can’t Bangladesh peacefully join India? They say that by doing so the economic problems of Bangladesh would get solved and also India will benefit a lot from the fertile lands of Bangladesh. So the game is on; Hasina is doing all her best to fulfill India’s dreams but at the same time the religious people of Bangladesh are determined that they would never let Modi become their new-father. Let us see what happens next.
