Last December, the Urdu-speaking Muslims living in Bangladesh were given the right to vote since the separation of Eastern wing of Pakistan by local majority party, Awami League leader Sheikh Mujibur Rehman (killed in a military coup in 1975) under Hindu tanks in 1971. He named the former East Pakistan province - Bangladesh or “Bangla country” (borrowing the Zionists’ concept of Palestine for “Jewish people” only). Mujib declared Hindu religious days as ‘national holidays’ and used to attend all Hindu festivals personally.
An unbaised reader of Indian sub-Continent will find that under British occupation of India - both Bangla and Urdu languages were turned into sort of racist cult - with the differnce that while Urdu-speaking conmmunities based their identities both on Islam and language - the Bangla-speaking communities have no religious bariers - Muslims, Hindus and Buddhist are all considered part of the same ‘Bangla Brotherhood’ as long as they speak Bangla and are born in India’s West Bangal or Bangladesh. In order to abolish such racism - based on language or birth land - which is against Islamic teachings - Quaid-e-Azam (a Gujrati-speaking Muslim) declared Urdu as Pakistan’s official language, though the majority of Pakistani population in 1947, was Bangla-speaking. However, after February 21, 1952 language riots at Dhaka University resulting in the death of three students - Bangla language was made into ‘lanuage Holocaust’.
There are 160 million Bangla-speaking population (82% Muslims, 16% Hindus and the rest Christians and Buddhists) - while India has more than 75 million Bangla-speaking population in West Bengal, Assam, Tripura, and state of Jharkhand. Some Indian leaders suggested to Mujib that if he could get a divorce from Pakistan - India maybe willing to let its province of West Bangal merge with Bangladesh - in order to unite the two Bangals, which the All India National Congress fought to get divided fearing being a Muslim-majority province under British Raj - its people may prefer to join the newly created Pakistan.
Persian was the official language during the Mughal Empire in Hindustan. During that period, Urdu (meaning army in Persian) was evolved out of Arabic, Persian and Turkish speaking Muslims who established Muslim rule in Indian sub-Continent. A great number of Urdu words became part of Bangla grammar. It was William Carey (1761-1834), an English missionary, who Sanskritized Bangla language between 1800 and 1813 with the help of Brahimin intellectuals. British imperialists made it compulsary for Muslims to learn this Sanskritized Bangla language to join government services. The Christian-Hindu agenda was to convert the former Muslim ruling class into tailors, boatment, peasants and rickshawalas . After division of India into two sovereign states, the anti-Muslim Hindu elites in India - went for the big kill - to Hinduized Muslims via Bangla language. However, their hatred of Bangla language is obvious from the fact that while Bangla is official language of Bangladseh - 75 million Bangla-speaking Indian citizens (25% Muslims) in West Bengal - have failed to get Bangla to be recognized as one of the state languages of India. In fact, New Delhi has refused to issue a postage stamp with Bangla script on it..............http://rehmat1.wordpress.com/2009/02/26/bangladesh-hinduized-via-bangla-language/
