    Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Lahore and expressed her deepest condolences to the “brotherly” people of Pakistan.

    At least 65 people were killed in a bomb attack that targeted Christians in the eastern city of Lahore on Sunday evening where women and children were enjoying an Easter weekend outing.


    A Taliban faction that once declared ties with Islamic State has claimed the responsibility of the attack.

    She wrote to her counterpart Muhammad Nawaz Sharif that at this moment of grief, “we firmly stand beside you in your fight against terrorism”.

    Hasina also prayed for the dead, according to a message the Prime Minister’s office released.


    1. The Lahore atrocity is something which is repulsive to all sane human beings and the current regime in Dhaka should of course condemn it.

    2. However what I do not understand is instead of a general statement of condolence (for the victims of the terror attack) why did Hasina write to Nawaz Sharif, a man who is a patron of radical Sunni terrorists in the Punjab and the head of a regime which despises her?

    a: Pakistanis have tried to destroy the Bangladesh economy through ISI operatives working in there.

    b: Pakistanis have been involved in attempts to organize a coup in the past few years.

    c: Pakistanis have also been involved apparently in attempts to kill Hasina herself.

    d: Then there is the Pakistani harassment and propaganda campaign against Bangladesh for our natural desire to carry out war criminals who murdered and raped in 1971.

    So in the light of all this and many other things, why is the Hasina regime sucking up to the terrorist regime of Nawaz Sharif, a man with links to the Punjabi Taliban (e.g. Lashkar Jhangvi), and Pakistan which is trying to destroy Bangladesh?

    An alleged RAW spy was arrested in Pakistan a few days back and the Pakistanis openly gloat over how they will kill him, whilst ISI operatives arrested in Bangladesh and are given tea and biscuits or at the most sent back (presumably first class) to Pakistan.
