Book on â€˜Atrocities against Hindus in Bangladeshâ€™ presented to CM
Great! It was the smartest thing to do since Modi is the only man who cares for India in today's politics. I hope Mr. Benkin has mentioned about our Buddhist population that vanished after 1970s from Chittagong Hill Tracts (Buddhists were 98% of CHT at the time between our independence and Bangladesh's creation).
Why was Chittagong Hill Tracts awarded to Pakistan in 1947 then?
Khulna was a hindu majority region which went to Pakistan because India wanted to keep Murshidabad (a muslim majority district) as without it, West Bengal would have been split into two.
What was the rational behind CHT?

By TCN News,
Vadodara: Human rights activists have questioned a US-based Jewish leader Dr. Richard Benkin presenting a book to Chief Minister Narendra Modi regarding alleged atrocities on Hindus in Bangladesh. Benkin is reported to have met Modi on February 15.
In his book titled as `A Quite Case of Ethnic Cleansingâ€™, Benkin alleged that Hindus are being subjected to forced proselytisation to Islam in Bangladesh, apart from sexual assaults and massacre and several types of atrocities.
Benkin's meet was reported by a popular website DeshGujarat.Com | Glimpse of Gujarat for Gujaratis all over the world., which said Benkin wants â€œIndian and American governments to come up with the policies to stop such serious incidents to protect human rights in true sense.â€
The website claims that â€œBenkin regretted that the central government believes Hindus donâ€™t have any issues in Bangladesh. According to him (Benkin), the atrocities against Hindus in Bangladesh can spark the sentiments of any humanitarianâ€™â€™.
Reacting to it, Peoplesâ€™ Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) representative Dr. J S Bandukwala expressed surprise that an American Jewish writer should appeal to Narendra Modi for help on the condition of Hindus in Bangladesh.
â€œIt would have been more appropriate if he had urged Modi to introspect and apologise for the killings of Gujarat Muslims in 2002â€™â€™, commented Bandukwala. â€œIncidentally Modi and Benkin should know that the only places where Jews were safe during the Middle Ages, right up to the First World War, were Muslim lands. No wonder they found refuge in Spain after the Crusaders had destroyed Jerusalem in the eleventh centuryâ€™â€™, Bandukwala reminded the US Jewish leader.
â€œYet as a true Muslim we have to condemn any injustice done to Jews or Christians or anybody else, whether it is in Iraq or Pakistan or Bangladesh. For that is against the basic teachings of Islamâ€™â€™, Bandukwala further pointed out.
NGO Sanchetna (Awareness) representative Dr. Hanif Lakhdawala said that Benkin appeared to have come to Gujarat with some hidden agenda, and that is, â€œtrying to instigate Modi at a time when the latter has just finished a month-long `sadbhavnaâ€™ (harmony) campaign to improve relations between communitiesâ€™â€™.
Lakdawala said that the Jews had already undergone massacres and atrocities and Benkin must understand this. â€œAs Muslims, we donâ€™t support violence against anybody, including Jewsâ€™â€™, pointed out Lakdawala.
Doubting the intention of Benkin, rights activist Jabir Mansuri said that Benkin appeared to have come to Gujarat with a view to widening the gap between communities in Indiaâ€™s pluralistic society. â€œThe whole approach of Benkin appears to promote the sale of his book among those Gujarati NRIs and others subscribing to the ideology of hate and division among societies and donâ€™t approve of the religious and cultural pluralism in Gujarat, India and the world at largeâ€™â€™, points out Mansuri.
LOL dumb NGOs making a fool of themselves! They are pissing their pants as the author did not go to them, this further exposes the credibility of such NGOs......if you want to know the hidden agenda of the NGOs, then don't go by the name of the NGO (which would be very secular or in shudh Hindi/Sanskrit) but the name of the owner and the source of funding!
P.S: The condition of Hindus in Bangladesh is no secret or the condition of Hindus in any Islamic nation!
Damn they must have been given this to Teesta and Roy rather to Modi who killed 10000 innocent's
Made my day....!!!!!
