INDIA has been demonstrating a totally negative attitude towards us, which has been spelled out in a front-page report of a local English-language daily on August 7. The Indian government, apparently toeing the extremist BJP views, is least bothered to ratify the Land Boundary Agreement.
India appears totally committed to the BJP-mandated ‘Hindutva and, as it is now, as well as in the foreseeable future, this is likely to be the Indian policy in this subcontinent. The Indian National Congress’s days seem to be over and, in the days to come, secularism could only become a distant memory.
The Indian ruling elite seem to believe that Bangladesh is an Indian ‘creation’ and we will go by their diktat, through fair or foul means. The indiscriminate border killing of innumerable unarmed innocent Bangladeshis, trespassing through an unmarked and open land border by the Indian border guards seem to bear a strong evidence of this. It has been going on since Bangladesh came into being and is likely to continue so long the border remains unfenced. This does not happen anywhere in the civilised world.
