On Friday, a mob of 500 Bangla Muslim-Hindu nationalist armed with hockey sticks, torches and fire-arms attacked a non-Bangla refugee camp in Mirpur north of capital city of Dhaka, which left ten non-Bangla Muslims dead.
The ethnic riots happened while the Muslims in the refugee camp were celebrating Muslim religious festival of “Shabe-e-Barat” (Night of Forgiveness). It’s an annual event celebrated on the 15th day of the month of Sha’aban, the eighth month of Islamic Calendar ahead of the month of Muslim fasting (Ramadhan). It was celebrated on June 13 in Bangladesh, Pakistan and India, with a combined Muslim population of over 400 million.
Over 500,000 non-Bangla citizens of former East Pakistan are forced to live within several Nazi-style Jewish ghettos since 1971 when East Pakistan was separated from Pakistan by Indian military invasion which was supported by Israel and the Jewish groups in the West. These peoples are commonly known as “Bihari” or “Urdu-speaking” people. A great majority of these victims of Bangla-Hindu racism had immigrated from Bihar state of British colonial India as result of the partition of India into Muslim-majority Pakistan (13% of Indian sub-continent) and the remaining Hindu-majority India.
In the 1970s, Algerian-born French Israel-First Jewish political activist Bernard-Henri Levy ran a vicious campaign in favor of the break-up of Pakistan. Later he ran similar campaigns to bring pro-Israel regime changes in Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria and Iran.
Hindus make more than 15% of Bangladesh population but like the Jewish minority (2%) in the United States, has significant clout in economic, education and political fields. Like Zionists, Hindu leaders are known for creating “fear” of Muslim majority which is spread around the world by the Jewish-controlled mass media.
Muslim religious groups have been the main targets of all Bangladeshi governments and main political parties which have maintained close ties with India and a hostile policy against pro-Pakistan groups and individuals. Last year, a Dhaka kangroo court sentenced Delwar Hossain Sayedee, one of top leaders of pro-united Pakistan Jama’at-e-Islami, to death, for allegedly supporting Pakistan army against Sheikh Mujibur Rehman’s Awami League’s so-called “liberation war” against Islamabad. The sentence was criticized by several local Islamic and secular opposition parties, United Nations, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and International Bar Association. All of them have claimed that the war crime trial was politically motivated.
During the India’s independence movement, Hindu Congress Party leaders campaigned for the partition of the state of Bengal while the leaders representing the Muslim-majority of Bengal were in favor of a united Bengal as an independent nation. British colonial power sided with the Hindu leaders and portioned Bengal into a Hindu West Bengal and a Muslim East Bengal. The first joined India while the other joined Pakistan.
During the anti-Muslim British Raj, the western colonialists used religion, language and culture to keep Hindu majority and Muslim minority divided. It was during 1000-year Muslim rule which united 5000 Hindu states into one nation in the Indian sub-continent. However, due to Muslim rulers tolerance toward Hindu majority, Muslims always remained a minority in Indian sub-continent. Read more here.
