Indian Bangladeshi border conflict and in a brief analysis.

Why such brutalities on our men?

We are at a turning point, and leadership is required to prevent disaster.
In Bangladeshi culture since the liberation war of 1971, there has not been any dearth of public display of patriotism. On different national days, political leaders and intellectuals compete with each others in critiquing an erstwhile villain. Bangladeshis are regularly being killed in the border regions by the people in uniform of that country. Recently, they entered Bangladesh , dug dozens of bunkers inside our country, set up border posts in our territory and wounded many of our compatriots in the Sylhet border areas by firing indiscriminately. 


With elections round the corner, increasing violence and political disagreement has left democracy in Bangladesh at crossroads. Democracy in modern Bangladesh has always been unstable: military takeover, political violence and parliamentary boycotts have all featured throughout Bangladesh's 42 years of existence. But the past few years have seen a concerted effort to sustain liberal democracy in Bangladesh by improving institutional performance and promoting greater transparency. Speaking exclusively to ANI, Purusottam Bhattacharya, Professor of International studies in Jadavpur University stated that democracy in Bangladesh is reasonably secure. Its not true.

Bangladesh Assessment 2013
We could hardly forget our pains from the latest brutality of BSF force when a picture of another Bangladeshi man, also naked, is in circulation in the internet. This time it is the brutality of our own police force and the victim is a supporter of a political party. The picture shows policemen swinging the body of Limon onto a van---two policeman holding his hands and the other one his feet---the way a slaughtered goat is thrown onto a conveyor for processing its meat.
Instead, they try to distract our attention from the real problem of India by continuously telling us about what Pakistan had done nearly half a century ago. Hypocrisy has a limit. Theirs’ has gone beyond all limits. Their loyalty is not to Bangladesh , but to another country. They are not patriots; they are traitors. People of Bangladesh are gradually wising up to this fact.

There is perhaps a thrill we humans relish in torturing and killing any living being. Our lust for killing is as strong as our lust for power. Torturers, as we find, don't stop torturing when they hear groans of pain and cries for mercy from the helpless victims. Screams of agony rather fuel the energy of the torturers to torture humans with renewed strength. Torturers hate to kill a man by a bullet; that is painless. They want their subjects to remain conscious for long to suffer the fullness of pains they sadistically inflict.

Despite regular atrocities by the BSFs and the illegal intrusion into our country and the continuous threats and intimidations by the Indian forces, we do not hear our ‘self-made patriots’ say any strong words against India . No political rallies against India ’s wrongdoings, no statements by political analysts or by university professors! Nor do we see any media campaign against India ’s hegemony. Many newspapers try to keep people of the country in the dark about India ’s hostilities. All keep quiet, as if nothing has been happening.

NO LET - UP IN BORDER KILLING

November 18, 2011 at 12:13am
THE killing of a Bangladeshi cattle trader by the Border Security Force of India on the Benapole border in Jessore tends to essentially highlight the hollowness of the Indian political establishment’s commitment to putting an end to the excesses and atrocities perpetrated by its border sentinels. According to a report published in New Age on Thursday, a cattle trader was killed on his way back from India after buying cattle from India. As if to live up to their director general’s assurance, made in Dhaka on September 30 at the end of a five-day meeting with his counterpart in the Border Guards Bangladesh, that non-lethal weapons had been introduced in many places to stop border killings, the members of the Angrail camp of the BSF beat the 25 -year-old Baten Mohammad to death. Worse still, it is not the first time that BSF members beat a Bangladeshi civilian to death on the border, on one pretext or the other. Moreover, as has been the case on many occasions in the past, the BSF members took away Baten’s corpse. On its part, the Border Guards Bangladesh sent a protest letter to the BSF authorities in what seems to have become a ritual in such cases. The Indian government as well as the BSF authorities have time and again claimed that they ‘have no intention of killing’ both at state- level meetings or at director general-level meetings of the border guards. However, such claims have hardly been supplemented by effective preventive, let alone prohibitive, actions. Any action, departmental or legal, against any member of the BSF for the killing of a Bangladeshi on the border has been a rarity, non-existent. Moreover, the Indian authorities, including the BSF top brass, have sometimes appeared to be seeking to justify such killings. For example, at the joint briefing after the director general-level meeting in Dhaka, the BSF chief observed that ‘what you call killing is not killing but death.’ Earlier, an Indian diplomat based in Dhaka claimed that those killed on the border were criminals — half of them Indian and half of them Bangladeshis — as if to suggest that the BSF was within its rights to play the role of prosecutor, judge and executioner all rolled into one. Such wavering by the authorities may very well have reinforced a sense of impunity in the minds of the field-level BSF members. Regrettably, however, the Awami League-Jatiya Party government has thus far largely appeared satisfied with its counterpart’s essentially hollow assurances and reassurances that it would take effective actions to stop border killing. While it has time and again claimed to have turned a new chapter in the bilateral relations between India and Bangladesh, its Indian counterpart has thus far appeared to be indifferent to its concerns over the excesses and atrocities on the border. It is time, therefore, for the Bangladesh government to further assert itself and have New Delhi take decisive and demonstrative steps to stop border killing.

'BSF' VANDALISES HOUSES IN BANGLADESH VILLAGE, LIFTS FOUR COWS IN LALMONIRHAT

October 26, 2011 at 9:47pm
Panic gripped the bordering villages since Monday night when a group of about 25 Indian BSF men from two camps in Koochbehar illegally entered into Bangladesh, vandalized at least three houses at Kisamot Nijjoma a village in Patgram upazila in Lalmonirhat and fled with four cows. Villagers said that the BSF troops from Ratanpur and Shalbari camps of 132 BSF Battalion at Meghliganj police station in Koochbehar district lifted four cows of Bangladesh villagers. A three-hour company commander level flag meeting between Border Guard Bangladesh and the Indian BSF ended at the no-man’s land Tuesday afternoon without any results. Villagers said that they want the cows lifted by BSF back. Freedom fighter Kapor Uddin, 68 , of Kisamot Nijjoma said that about 25 BSF men entered our village Monday night, vandalised three houses and fled with four cows from the village. He said that the BSF men threatened the villagers they would be picked up unless they kept mum over what they did. ‘So we preferred to keep mum, until the BGB troops came to the village after the BSF men had left,’ he said. The villagers are in panic, as flag meeting ended without any result, he said. He said that the villagers were apprehensive that BSF could attack the village again anytime. Moyna Begum, 36 , wife of Atikar Rahman of the village said that the villagers were in panic after inconclusive flag meeting. The BGB team leader, Burimari BGB company camp commander Helal Uddin Ahmed said that at the flag meeting the BSF team refused to admit what they did. Despite protests from the BGB against the intrusion, he said, BSF flatly denied that they entered the Bangladeshi village, he said. At the flag meeting held at no- man’s land near the main pillar No 854 at Sree Rampur border 12 - member BSF team was led by company commander of Ratanpur BSF camp SK Singh.

Indian court acquits border guard in killing of 15-year-old Bangladeshi girl 2 years ago        THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KOLKATA, India — A court in eastern India has acquitted an Indian paramilitary soldier who was charged with the 2011 killing of a teenage Bangladeshi girl along the border between the countries.
Killings of illegal migrants are common along the porous India-Bangladesh border, but this was the first time an Indian border guard had been put on trial for such a killing. India says most of the people killed along the border are smugglers.
A court in West Bengal state said Thursday that border guard Amiya Ghosh was not guilty of shooting the 15-year-old girl as she crossed into Bangladesh from the Indian side in January 2011.
The two countries are often at odds over issues involving their nearly 4,000-kilometre (2,500-mile) border. Bangladesh accuses Indian troops of using extreme violence along the border.

India, Bangladesh border forces to hold Director-General level talks this week
PTI : New Delhi, Thu Sep 12 2013, 14:19 hrs

Magnified here, the India-Bangladesh border is highly volatile, and the Director-General level talks will be held primarily to discuss such problems as illegal crossings, migrations and smuggling
Top commanders of the border forces of India and Bangladesh will meet later this week to discuss a number of issues that include illegal crossing overs and migration to Indian side and smuggling of narcotics along the eastern frontier.
A delegation led by Border Security Force (BSF) chief Subhash Joshi will travel to Dhaka for the five-day Director General-level talks beginning September 14.
The Indian delegation will include officials from the border management division of the Home Ministry and from the Ministry of External Affairs.
The talks are a bi-annual affair between BSF and Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) which take place once in India and Bangladesh,
The BGB delegation will be led by its DG Maj Gen Aziz Ahmed.
Apart from the persistent issues plauging the 4,096 km Indo-Bangla border, the two forces will discuss issues related to smuggling of fake Indian currency notes (FICN), security of border guarding personnel and identification of sensitive posts along the Indo-Bangla border.
The Indian border guards will also take up issues of wrong and misinterpreted accusations levelled against them for the killing of Bangladeshi civilians during the meet.
"In the last six months close to five-six instances of wrongdoing have been levelled against BSF. They have proved to be untrue and totally false. These instances will be raised during the meeting," a senior official said.
The issue of illegal migration is also expected to be brought on the table, the official said.
The BSF DG is also expected to invite senior BGB officials and others to the first retreat ceremony to be held on the Petrapole-Benapole border on October 2.

Bangladesh-India border: "Wall of Death"
Life at the India-Bangladesh border is hostile and strange, and often deadly.
RANGPUR, Bangladesh — “If they see me talking to you, they’re going to give me a lot of trouble,” says Abdul Rahim.
Standing at the very edge of his property on the Bangladesh-India border, the 48-year-old Indian farmer is half a step away from illegally crossing into the Bangladeshi village of Chander Haat. But it’s not the possibility of getting caught trespassing by Bangladeshi border guards that worries him.
Behind Rahim, a couple hundred meters into the Indian side of the border, is the world’s longest — and bloodiest — barbed wire fence.
Dubbed the “wall of death” by locals, the 4,000 km barrier spans the length of the fifth-longest border in the world, and is manned by India’s Border Security Force (BSF), whose guards kill both Bangladeshis and Indians with impunity. 
Rahim claims the BSF routinely harasses him and has occasionally beaten him on suspicion of aiding or sheltering illegal Bangladeshi migrants and smugglers.
It's a tense border. Despite India helping Bangladesh gain independence in 1971, relations between the two countries have remained strained since the 1947 partition of India, when the subcontinent was split along religious lines, creating East Pakistan where present-day Bangladesh is. Partition resulted in a bloodbath, with over 1 million killed in the space of a few months and more than 10 million Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs displaced in one of the largest mass migrations in human history.
Little progress has been made over decades between the two countries on hot-button issues like smuggling, supplying arms and refuge to Indian insurgents, and control of the numerous rivers that flow through both countries.
Targeting undocumented migrants
But the standout crisis dominating Indian discourse is undocumented migrants.
Official estimates are that there are 2 million undocumented Bangladeshi migrants in India. A number frequently reported in India media is 20 million.
Like Mexican undocumented migrants in the United States, their Bangladeshi counterparts are the favored scapegoats of the Indian right — blamed for unemployment, crime, terrorism, "low-key Talibanization," and "disturbing our indian sex-ratio statistics."
This has created a situation where many say India’s border guards are trigger-happy. 
On Jan. 7, 2011, Felani Khatun and her father arrived at the barbed wire a little after the early morning call to prayer had rung out from a nearby mosque. Dressed up in traditional bridal wear and wedding jewelry, the drowsy 15 year old had fallen asleep several times during their overnight journey to the border and could barely keep her eyes open.
Felani, born in India to parents who were undocumented migrants there, was returning to Bangladesh to get married. But it was daylight now, and Felani’s father Nurul Islam was afraid.
The local smugglers he had paid Rs 3000 ($70) to help him and his daughter across insisted however that everything was fine, and the two began to climb up the ladder that had been arranged for them.
Nurul Islam made it over successfully. Moments later, as Felani reached the top of the 2.5m high fence, Indian border guards who had spotted them came running out and shot her dead from close range.
“[The BSF shot] without any warning. I don’t understand why they didn’t shout anything,” remembers Nurul Islam, who has been relocated with the rest of his family to the Bangladeshi village of Ramkhana, near where his daughter died. “I wish they’d said ‘stop.’ If they’d just said ‘stop’ she would’ve been saved.”
Felani’s lifeless body hung from the fence for five hours, in full view of Bangladeshi and Indian farmers living nearby. Eventually, the BSF slung her hands and feet onto a bamboo pole and took her away.
It was over 30 hours before her body was handed over to Bangladeshi authorities and returned to her father. “They took her jewelry,” Nurul Islam said, sardonically.
A photo, first published in Indian newspaper Anandabazaar, of Felani’s corpse hanging from the fence sparked a huge uproar in Bangladeshi media. The Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram announced during a visit to Dhaka in July that the BSF would use non-lethal weapons, and that they would no longer shoot at civilians under any circumstances.
Stemming the cattle trade
Six months later the deaths on the border continue to pile up.
Except now they
·         INDIA should STOP Bangladesh border killing...!!
India should stop all border killing with Bangladesh border. No one can say that Indians do not enter illigely in Bangladesh. But BGB doesn't fire on them and push them to their country. But other hand, when it happens with Bangladesh, BSF fires on the innocent Bangladeshis and kill them without any reason. Sometime BSF kill Bangladeshis when ther are working their land beside the borders. Look India, we are human, not dogs. Try to resist your border guard team from killing BD peoples. You should stop it for the betterment of your country and humanity. Mind it, Tit for tat....!!

As Bangladeshis illigely enter India ,, such as some Indians also enter Bangladesh without passport or permission. Bt have you heard that BGB has killed any Indians?

Both BSF and your Border guard are corrupted to the core.Perhaps Indians who are crossing to Bangladesh are paying BGB more contrary to the Bangladeshis who are not bribing much and getting killed.

well Many Indians have been killed by BGB as well. And no, its not normal and BSF is now doing everything to stop this, eg- atleast 50 troops have been suspended in last 1 year for firing on BDians crossing border. But again you should also understand our problems too, that's many of Bangladeshi cross are smugglers who often fire on BSF troops too and even 2-3 BSF troops have been killed in those attacks recently. Another problem is that many terrorists enter in India through Bangladesh.

1 Equal no of Indians and BD people have been killed

2 The no of killings have gone down substantially as BSF has tried to use non lethal weapons

3 Smugglers operate in large gangs and can be violent, they have attacked even BD forces and BD forces have also shot them. Its unfair to ask our soldiers to risk their lives trying to find out if a big gang of criminals in the dead of night is armed or not if they do not cooperate.

Stop crying and ask your govt to stop border crossings, that will solve the problem fully.
