Bangladesh, with 156 million miserable inhabitants stuffed into an area barely larger than the state of Illinois, can be found snuggled in the armpit of India. If you are wondering how a country finds itself so completely surrounded by another country, it should be explained that Bangladesh was once historically, geographically, culturally part of India.
So what happened and what's all this about a Muslim slaughter of Hindus?
First a little background on the nature of Muslims. Most westerners think of Islam as a religion, however that is false. Islam is a political system that controls the entire life of the individual. Muslims in any country do not think of themselves as citizens of that country but as citizens of political Islam who happen to be temporary residents in that country.
As proof, consider the following: On 15 August 1947, India proclaimed its independence. However on that day it was a much smaller country than it was only the day before, because on the day before, on 14 August 1947, the Muslims of India could not abide the thought of being the citizens of a non-Muslim state and so they took the opportunity of the British leaving India to form the Dominion of Pakistan which included modern-day Pakistan and Bangladesh, as a homeland for the Muslims of the Indian sub-continent.
As a result of this tragic dismemberment of a country, at least 10 million Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs fled their homes to seek sanctuary in whichever new country was favorable to them. The communal massacres just after partition led to the deaths of at least one million souls.
The Dominion of Pakistan became the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in 1956, and the People's Republic of Bangladesh became an independent state in 1971.
I will discuss the Hindus of Pakistan in a later article. In this post we will consider the plight of Hindus who found themselves living in what would later become Bangladesh, a country controlled by Muslims.
Pakistan's Genocidal Slaughter of Hindus
Beginning 25 March 1971 and continuing throughout the Bangladesh Liberation War, there were widespread violations of human rights in what is now Bangladesh perpetrated by the Pakistan Army with support of local Islamic militias. Time magazine reported a high U.S. official as saying "It is the most incredible, calculated thing since the days of the Nazis in Poland." (1)
Bangladeshi authorities claim that 3 million people were killed (80% of them Hindu). So while apologists for Palestinian terrorists weep over the death of one child (who was most likely killed by Hamas) and call it Genocide, the real genocide is perpetrated by Muslims.
When Muslims force the displacement 10 million human beings and the murder of millions of others there is no outcry from leftists and Palestinian apologists, when a few homes that harbored terrorist soldiers are bulldozed by Israel, they cry "ethnic cleansing!"
In many blogs one may find no shortage of accusations of Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing against the Israelis when a handful of so-called Palestinians are killed or displaced. Quite a lack of perspective these Palestinians.
Pakistani Muslims killed more people in one day than Israelis have killed in the 62 years since the establishment of the State of Israel. These same Muslims displaced more people in one day than Israelis have ... you can fill in the rest.
This is my first post in a new category called Muslim Slaughter, where I will show that Islam has killed hundreds of millions of innocent people during the past 1400 years, more than Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Khan put together.
Time Magazine, 2 Aug 1971, Pakistan: The Ravaging of Golden Bengal
The Hindus, who account for three-fourths of the refugees and a majority of the dead, have borne the brunt of the Moslem military's hatred. Even now, Moslem soldiers in East Pakistan will snatch away a man's lungi (sarong) to see if he is circumcised, obligatory for Moslems; if he is not, it usually means death. Others are simply rounded up and shot. Commented one high U.S. official last week: "It is the most incredible, calculated thing since the days of the Nazis in Poland."
