3 elements of Pakistan's policy in #Bangladesh (E. Pakistan):
* Rule Bengalis - they are unreliable.
* Islamize the masses - make a strong religious bond with W. Pakistan.
* Seize #Hindu property - provide a golden carrot to win over the under privileged Muslim middle-class.

#Bangladesh - 1971 - RAPE was a strategic policy of Pakistan army that the Imams & Mullahs supported. A West Pakistan fatwa asserted that women taken from #Hindus could be considered war booty. Rapes of Hindu women aimed to destroy their FAITH, SOCIAL POSITION & SELF-ESTEEM.

#Bangladesh - 1971 - The Butcher of Balochistan, General Tikka Khan, ordered his soldiers to impregnate as many Bengali women as they could so there would be a whole generation of children in East Pakistan that would be born with the blood from the West.

#Hindu Men and women were separated into two lines, forced to say “Pakistan Zindabad” and recite “La-illaha illa’ Llah”. Then they were shot. Childern screaming in panic were set on fire with the half-dead adults while they were still begging for water.

Thread: BSF Soldiers Disarmed by Bengali Farmers

Two #BSF jawans were attacked and their weapons snatched allegedly by Bangladeshi farmers who sneaked into India to graze their cattle in West Bengal’s Murshidabad district on 26 Feb 2023.
The incident happened near the Nirmalchar border outpost in Ranitala police station area when two jawans of the 35th Battalion were patrolling. On noticing that a group of #Bangladeshi farmers was crossing the border to graze their cattle on fields of #Indianfarmers.....,
...the jawans intercepted them. Soon, hundreds of people from #Bangladesh crossed over to India, and attacked the jawans with sticks and ‘dah’ a sharp-edged tool mainly used in farming as per #BSF. BSF said the Border Guards Bangladesh (#BGB) was informed about the incident...,

The #USA killed #India’s #nuclear physicist #HomiBhabha and Prime Minister #LalBahadurShastri—confessions of Robert Crowley, then second in command of the CIA's Directorate of Operations (in charge of covert operations) recorded in a book by Gregory Douglas.
Via @MeghBulletin
Pertinent to note here that the confession by the CIA officer indicates the #US government in 1966 wilfully murdered 117 civilians on @airindiain flight 101 just so they could kill #HomiBhabha .
An act of State sponsored #terrorism by #WashingtonDC any way you look at it .
A lot of water has flown under the bridge since then . Every nation has national imperatives that overrule previous issues. We've let this slide just as we've let the 1971 Enterprise incident go .

I have been thinking about samosas for the last week & here is a thread about them. For starters the Samosa comes from West Asia and was originally meat wrapped in a dough cone and fried - the sambusak! The only truly veg versions are all Indian! #Samosa #Sambusak #PunjabiSamosa
I grew up in Mumbai eating what is now known as the Parsi/Bohri Samosa and which I simply knew as a Samosa. Lightly spiced lamb mince cooked with onions, green chillies and corriander, stuffed into a triangular pocket made from flat precooked sheets of samosa patti. #Samosa
These were then slowly fried in hot (not too hot) oil till golded brown & served with a typically Parsi Green chutney made with coconut, mint, corriander, peppercorns, green chutney & lime juice. These treats were rare and cherished! #Samosa

The "Integrated country strategy" with #SriLanka will likely be our template for #BharatVarsh as a union of #Indic civilization.
Interesting to note that instead of imposing ourselves we've let the #SriLanka govt outline the details of the integration process on their terms.
A detailed description of what they're looking at below . In essence seems to be much like a federation of union of states .Better for the people of both nations .
Russia went straight to Dand .
We try to stay between Saam & Daam use Bhedh if necessary as a measure of Dand .

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.

We cannot call it #India-#Bangladesh prime ministerial meeting in true sense of the term, since #SheikhHasina came to the WEF meeting. The bilateral visit is scheduled later. However despite its limited scope I find the meeting very encouraging and beneficial for either side. 1/n
Key takeaways from #Modi-#SheikhHasina
Meeting 1) The LPG deal is consequent to #India's decision to invest in LPG terminal in #Chittagong. With time we wil see rise in supplies and #Bangladesh-#NorthEast LPG pipeline. 2/n
LPG deal is a mirror of #India-Bangladesh #diesel pipeline with the exception that in the case of #LPG, #Bangladesh is also getting #FDI. This is early stages of creation of a regional oil & gas grid, which may be expanded to #CLMV #Asean in the days to come. #Modi- #Hasina
