    The truth is that Bangladesh has never stabilised even though it was liberated and it became an independent country.

    The chaotic legacy of Pakistan to include the military assuming that they are the saviours of the nation seems to have been ingrained in their psyche.

    Though India liberated Bangladesh, it appears that the democratic traditions of India with political stability, notwithstanding coalition politics that have come to stay, does not seem to have washed off on Bangladesh, though it has to be admitted that after Liberation, India played no role as Bangladesh moved towards political chaos and turbulence.

    Mujib, though was a great Helmsman for Bangladesh, did attempt to become all to powerful. Whether that was a right step or not, only Bangladeshis, themselves, can say. Could it be that Mujib, being a child of Pakistani politics where the military has been predominant for stability, was influenced into believing that only an iron hand and centralised power alone was the answer for a stable Bangladesh?

    After the assassination of Mujib by military conspirator and a taste of military power, in true Pakistani style, Bangladesh went into a spiral, though they did have bouts of democracy, which only galvanised greater chaos since the war was between the legacy of the military represented by Khaleda Zia and the 'liberation heroes' led by Sheik Hasina. Thus, two power centres of Bangladesh politics emerged and soon, more than politics, each only furthered their own families interest spurring regimes of corruption, nepotism and shortsighted policies.

    Khaleda Zia, is India born, but being the wife of Zia ur Rehman, is steeped in Pakistani military ethos, which in turn is steeped in Islam! Therefore, her being averse to India is understandable and hence she has fostered anti Indian politics as also played footsie with the Islamists. Hasina, on the other hand, does have some gratitude toward India owing to the part India played to liberate Bangladesh which her father spearheaded.

    Apart from the bouts of military dictatorships, Bangladesh politics have been a messy squabble between these two women who decide the fate of Bangladesh.

    During Khaleda's rule, Hasina caused issues and brought her govt down and now it is the turn of Khaleda to bring Bangladesh to its knees.

    Therefore, the scenario suggests the Bangladesh is in the line to implode.

    The article indicates the explosive scenario erupting in Bangladesh!

    +1 to that.

    After reading the views of Bangladesh and Bangladeshis, I realize that they are just mini-Pakis. They hate India and Indians more than even the original Pakis do. Nothing can be done with them, and there is no "cooperation and friendship" possible with that nation.

    Let us cement our relations with Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and let BD and Pak go to the dogs. Let us bolster the Siliguri corridor and not have anything to do with that nation called BD - we don't need to depend on them for transit to the N-E.

    Both Hasina and Khaleda might be bad for bangladesh but Hasina is our best bet for Indian interests in Bangladesh. Khaleda and her razakar cohorts are more dangerous to India as they were actively involved in supporting anti-India elements. We cannot always work with a hands-off approach, we have to work with the best that is available there and in the case of BD, it is Hasina. India has to do everything in its power to help her rule the BD.

    On to the topic, I don't think BD has reached to a point that it will implode like Pakistan. Its economy is better and steadily improving and so are social indicators. Still there are some secular forces in the country and rapid spread of islamization should be stopped by Hasina if she wish to rule BD for long as the Islamic elements favor pro-pakistani Khaleda.

    I read an article about Islamization (or rather wahabbization) that is happening in BD is due to generous funding of Saudis to the religious fundamentalists and the street-corner mullahs for establishing new mosques and madrasas. And in these places there is active wahabization is going on among the general poor populace. How it will be stopped is a big question. If this is not stopped, BD will go the Pakistan way and eventually fall into the hands of islamists and create another problem for India in the neighborhood.

    Here is a post of BDeshi on another forum about Saudi influence

    Here is an interview of a Political scientist on the influence of Saudis in Bangladesh

    if bangladesh fall, tug of war will be the sole reason. the best thing to do, for bangladesh will be to make institutions which functions in the interest of nation irrespective of the political leadership. forces should be disciplined and should obey the rule of political leadership only and not of anyother self proclaimed authority.

    bangladesh will become natural ally of the nation which help it in establishing these institution and relative code of conducts
