Prime minister Hasina Mujib Wajid Sheikh, an Indian agent, government is planning to eliminate Islam as the state religion which is practiced by 87% of the country’s 162 million citizens. Hindus make 12% of the country’s population.
On November 22, 2016, Taj Hashmi, in an article, entitled, Attacks On Minorities In Bangladesh: Not Communal But Fascistic by Nature, whined that Bengali Muslims are against minorities’ rights to practice their religion. Hashmi claims that every time an anti-Islam statement is made by Hindu or Christian religious leaders, writers or bloggers – Muslims attack and ransack temples and churches.
“The attacks on dozens of Hindu temples and destruction of hundreds of Hindu houses in Nasirnagar alone were based on wild rumours about one local Hindu youth’s offensive Facebook posting against Islam. However, these are false flag operations to justify the attacks on local Hindus. The main motive of the attacks, as the National Human Rights Commission observes, was “to grab Hindu property,” says Hashmi.
I suggest Taj Hashmi try to insult his adopted country’s (United States) main religion, the Holocaust, and find out the rights of freedom of speech in the US.
On June 6, 2016, Bangladesh Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan accused Israeli agents of carrying out the recent assassinations of country’s anti-Islam Hindu and other minority intellectuals and bloggers. He claimed that he had the proof of Israel’s involvement in those murders blamed on religious Muslim groups.
Then to support his lies, Hashmi quote Indian Hindu journalist Basant Chatterjee who wrote that “the average Bangladeshi Muslims were much more anti-Hindu and anti-Indian than their immediate past generation who had grown up during the Pakistani period.”
If that’s true – then as a witness during 1967-69 to Bengali hatred towards non-Bengali Pakistani Muslims – I hate to say East Pakistani Hindus deserved it for carrying India’s proxy war against West Pakistan in order to make Bangladesh an Indian colony.
Professor Mohammed Ayoob (Michigan State University) and senior fellow at Israel advocacy group, Center for Global Policy – writing at Jewish site, The National Interest (July 7, 2016), disagrees with Hashmi. He claimed that majority of Bangladeshi Muslims are secularists, thus more tolerant towards non-Muslim minorities, and India than Pakistani Muslims majority of whom hate non-Muslim minorities and India.
Taj Hashmi teaches ‘Security Studies’ at Austin Peay State University (APSU) in Clarksville, Tennessee, and author of several books, is an anti-Islam, anti-Pakistan Bengali academic. He never raised his voice against Hasina government’s arrest of over 3,000 Islamists and hanging of half a dozen leaders of the banned Jama’at-e-Islami which opposed the creation of Bangladesh out of the former Eastern-wing of Pakistan.
APSU is an Evangelical institution. Its current president Dr. Alisa White claims that she and her family celebrate both Christmas and Jewish Hanukhah.
