    Weeks after an electricity bill from Thane's Nallasopara slum colony brought a 'Chota Pakistan' to light, a birth certificate issued to a resident from Gandhinagar locality in Mira-Bhayander, has revealed a settlement called 'Bangladesh Zopadpatti'.

    This slum pocket in Bhayander West, housing around 700 people from rural Maharashtra, is just a stone throw away from Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation (MBMC) and finds a place in the government records too.

    Asked to comment on the birth certificate issued by the civic body's health department, MBMC Deputy Commissioner Sambaji Panpatte said, "We will look into it and if need be act on it. But there is no demand from anyone to change the address."

    Surprisingly, not a single Bangladeshi lives in these slums. Instead 2,000-odd Maharashtrians from Amravati, Yavatmal, Nanded and other interiors occupy the place, and have photo passes and certificates carrying the address, civic sources said.

    But unlike Nallasopara, residents of this area have no objection with the place being referred to as 'Bangladesh'. They, however, have no idea how the name originated, sources said.

    Milan Mhatre, a former corporator, says these names were in existence since last four decades but have never stirred any controversy. "They were probably named rejoicing the victory during the Bangla war and have continued since then," he said.

    Leo Colaco, President of Mira-Bhayander Congress Committee, Thane, said there is nothing wrong in christening a locality by any name. "There is no need to make a hue and cry over the issue as it has never posed any problem," he said.

    However, civic sources said the issue will be raised in the next general body meeting of the MBMC.

    There is nothing to be panicked in here ,,, In West Bengal people distinguishes east bengali refugees calling Bangal and the Bangals are very much proud of their name and this is going on for more than 7 decades,,, but the bangals are very much Indian and they can sacrifice as much as we can for the country,,,,, so chilll,,,,,

    If they are not Bangladeshis, then it is fine that they are there.

    It could also be that some native of Maharastra found Bengalis thronging there during the 'throw Bangladeshis out' move of Thackeray and thought it ideal to call it Bangladesh so that attention come there and the chaps thrown out so that Realtors make a killing!

    Anything can happen in India!

    In Calcutta, we have the Odeypara, the Sikhpara and so on and we are proud of it that there are so many people from India who found their niche in Calcutta, now called Kolkata.

    Mira road is not in Thane or is it?

    If such a thing happens in Mira Rd, then the IB should have some check on the chaps and keep a note of the people and book them when they act so!
