For a decade or more one has been saying, "stop hyphenating India with Pakistan and start comparing Pakistan with Bangladesh"? With Bangladesh GDP higher than Pakistan's GDP, I still doubt this will happen (Hint: Indian Per capita GDP will again be higher than Bangladesh in 2021)
2/bd #India's per capita GDP will return to a level higher than #Bangladesh by 2021, contrary to the simplistic, straight line growth projections in this 👇🏼 article. Keep a note of All the renowned economists who believed👇🏼, and compare after a year, with what I have said today.

Do you know why I feel #Islam is definitely going to capture India very soon like we captured #Afghanistan, #Pakistan, #Bangladesh, #Indonesia, etc. which were once Hindu lands? because Hindus don't understand d fundamental rules & limitations of democracy. Lemme explain..(1/11)
Democracies have mainly 2 types of political parties (1) Pro-Islamist, or purely opportunist parties like AIMIM, TMC, INC, CPI, CPI-M, etc. who prefer to appease dominant group of voters who all vote as one block (2) Truly secular parties like BJP who don't appease anyone..(2/11)
3rd type of parties i.e. Pro-Hindu party or Anti-Islamic party can NOT exist. Not in India, Not anywhere. Why?: If we Muslims are insignificant in numbers, Your religion doesn't have any threat so no Hindu will support Pro-Hindu or Anti-Muslim party. ..(3/11)

On the 1st anniversary of #Rohingya mass exodus from #Myanmar to #Bangladesh, I had visited the #refugee camps, seen them living in cramped, filthy conditions without work or systematic education. 3 years now, conditions worsened, #repatriation & negotiations practically stalled ImageImageImageImage

1)BREAKING: #ISIS claims attack in #Bangladesh, targeting a police headquarters in capital #Dhaka. Marks the group's 1st attack in the city since Aug. 2019 & comes amid an attack surge as part of the 4th wave of its "Battle of Attrition" campaign, in lead up to #EidAlAdha.
2)Media reports citing police officials: IED went off inside station, after it was found in a separate operation & brought back to be defused. Casualties were tallied at five wounded, including four police officers. Additional bombs successfully defused.

3) Responding to recent inquiry, I’d like to clear up some facts: the recent claim from #Bangladesh was #ISIS official and authentic, meaning individuals on the ground in Bangladesh communicated w/ IS media command (likely in Syria), and the claim was then released.

Bangladesh PM snubs Imran's efforts to raise Kashmir in bilateral conversation ecoti.in/ywdw1b via @EconomicTimes

#Pakistan has been snubbed by a #large number of #countries on many occasions, but it continues to raise #Kashmir shamelessly.
#Pakistan role in #assassination of Hasina's father and #Bangladesh first leader has been widely acknowledged. #ISI-backed #Terror terror groups have been active in Bangladesh under BNP-Jamaat rule. But the #Hasina government cracked down after it returned to power in 2008.
Pak spy agency’s efforts to support BNP at last elections in 2018 was also foiled.

Whats going on #Facebook? Why it became a platform for the fundamentalist to propagate all the proofless shit? why #FreeThinkers cant question the very authenticity of the #Quran and Hadith and how those books came about?
#MarkZuckerberg secularisminbangladesh.home.blog/to_mark_zucker… @BanglaBrit1972
It is valid to point out that such a belief system that maintains the notion of “I blindly believe and hence it must be true”, is against all forms of rational reasoning and proof.
Mr #Zuckerberg, many of our FB accounts have been deactivated including my own. pls take action
We also think FB is succumbing to requests from the govt of countries like Bangladesh to muzzle our voice.Many atheists, #exmuslims,writers, bloggers, leaders of non-Muslim, #LGBT rights activists have been killed in #Bangladesh by #Islamic terrorists, all in the name of #Islam

Have said this before, will repeat. I expected more from you @DrSJaishankar . But you have sorely disappointed by being too eager to impress your boss @narendramodi over sane foreign policy . It’s clear @RahulGandhi got under your skin when he exposed your abject failure.
Do you honestly believe photo ops are a substitute for sustained diplomatic engagement, have you not had to clean up the mess @narendramodi often creates or clarify the lies he peddles? Now onto your hollow claims
#China Intruded occupied our territory, first combat casualty in 45 yrs on Ladakh border. No real disengagement. Despite Sabarmati & Mahaballipuram China now closer to Pakistan, against us at NSG, UNSC interfered in Kashmir. What success are you referring to? @DrSJaishankar

Dr Jaishankar,
A settled land boundary with Bangladesh would have happened years ago, had the BJP & @narendramodi not blocked it.
Here's the infamous letter Jaitely wrote to the Rajya Sabha Secretariat.
Even after the BJP came to power, it wanted to keep Assam out of the Indo - Bangla LBA, keeping in view the Assam elections, INC insisted Assam's inclusion & BJP had no option.
Sushma Swaraj, conceded in parliament, the same bill Congress had drafted had been cleared. #Bangladesh
It is your party & govt, with its irresponsible rhetoric, under the irresponsible guidance of Shri @AmitShah that has soured relations with #Bangladesh & has pushed a friendly govt towards China.
Reset your ties with that nation, is all i can say.

.@RahulGandhi hs questions on Foreign Policy. Here are some answers:

•Our major partn’ships are strongr & internat’l standng higher.Witness regular summits&informal meetngs wth #US #Russia #Europe & #Japan.India engages #China on more equal terms politically.

Ask the analysts.
•We speak our mind more openly now. On #CPEC, on #BRI, on South China Sea, on UN-sanctioned terrorists, etc.

Ask the media.
• And address the #border infrastructure imbalance legacy. Compare 2014-20 with 2008-14. Budget up by 280%, road building by 32%, bridges by 99% and tunnels by 6 times.

Ask our Jawans.
