    India should have let Mukti Bahini kill Pakis and their BD supporters in BD in 71. By now BD would have been a prosperous country. India should help Sheikh Hasina to eliminate Islamists in BD. India should shoot muzzie BD infiltrators dead, would do a good to India and Bangladesh both

    It was the British and their fellow Hindutva ideologists who supported the Banga-Bhanga andolan. Bangladeshi Muslims in general do not like Pakistanis.

    This dislike originated around 1970s. Situation was radically different in 1940s.

    Ever heard about the Direct Action Day or the Great Kolkata Killings? Bengali Muslims were hardcore supporters of Pakistan, while they were butchering Hindus on streets of Kolkata, they hadn't imagined that their presumably taller and fairer brethren from the west would start looking down upon them :pound:and then 1971 happened.

    Had it not been up to the likes of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, the 30% Hindu population of United Bengal would have met the same fate as the Hindus in West Pakistan. Jinnah was adamant at having Kolkata as part of East Pakistan.

    Just like Bangladeshi "Cattle Traders" are plucked by our BSF?

    1. Calcutta Killings was orchestrated by the British Colonial Deptt/Intel to hasted division of SA.
    2. Ideological Pakistan was born at Dhaka through the establishment of the Muslim League. Bengali Muslims anted to get rid of the stranglehold of zamindars and banya money-lenders. Both these elements were Hindu dominated.
    3. Kolkata was traded for Lahore by W Pakistanis.

    You mean to say that Muslim rioters who stabbed, beheaded, raped Hindus on streets of Kolkata were all innocent, child-like?

    Division of India was a demographic necessity.

    Division of India.
    And look, they succeeded that you're calling it "South Asia."
    Ideology of Pakistan was based on Anti Kaffir sentiment. Be it Hindu or anyone.
    BTW, I'm a Baniya.
    Maybe, they got 30% territory (against valid 23%) and more than 5 crore extra rupees.:dude:
    Blunders of socialist governments.

    LIE !!! the Muslims [read Muslim League] in Calcutta thought they will get Calcutta easily because of sizeable Muslim population then in 40's... It is the Muslims who started the killings ...

    you may say that Muslim League was hand in glove with the British ...

    Another LIE !!! both Hindus & Muslims peasants were at the receiving end of the Zamindars and money lenders... this logic is a façade to grab power post British period ...

    The Gurkhas played a significant role after the Pathan police then in Calcutta blindly started supporting the Muslims into killings... When the Muslims were on the runs after the tide of killings were on Hindu's favor... then came Gandhi with fasting at Beleghata to stop the killings.... else Muslims would have been wiped out from Calcutta...

    Thanks to Jinnah and congress for the partition 1947 other India would be a failed terrorist state.

    Imagine if India wasn't partition on religious lines - filthy subhuman Rohingya Musalman from Bangladesh enjoy our Metros and Malls apart from enjoying the fruit of hardworking Hindus,Sikhs and Hindustani Musalman.

    After the surrender of Pakistan, the Indian Army provided protection to the Pakistani PoWs. This was a necessity as per international law. The Indian military is bound by the acceptable conduct of war.
    _______________________________________________
    There was support for partition from both the sides.

    Fair enough. More on Congress below.

    No one is tagging the whole of Hindus with the Congress. Neither is the whole of Congress responsible for Partition. As one member pointed out, the Hindutwavadi members of Congress and Muslims League were responsible for Partition.
