    What is your take on this? Keep in mind that the above author does not believe the 200,000 figure but still 80,000 is a high number.

    Yes a high number but very few have come forward since and admitted being raped in 71 ... If they do not come forward now why back in 71?

    What then is your opinion on the 1972 inquiry which found 80,000 cases of rapes?

    What do you think is the actual number range of rapes? And is there any supporting data like we have supporting data for only 56,000 casualties?

    There is actually no reliable figure on the war whatsoever.

    The only person who has done some research on the available statistics is Sarmila Bose and she comes up on the low end in all the figures.

    While the number of rapes is impossible to quantify after 40 years the number of dead should have been easier to put together.

    That it is likely nearer 50000 - 150000 on all sides is indicated by the lack of mass graves discovered so far.

    Many of the mass graves that have come to light could easily be of biharis who were frequently massacred at the time.

    I say that all sides included in the 56 000 figures because I saw a stats table indicating that.

    Do you have any reliable info or data on number of abortions that were carried out or number of war babies? Hamoodur Rahman Commission Report cited only the evidence of one British team that there were only 100 abortions. However there was definitely more than ine team that went to BD for abortions. I read that an American abortion team also went there.

    On the other hand I have heard feminist Germaine Greer saying that the 300,000 rapes story is false -and she said this a few years ago- (this statement of hers is interesting since I also read a newspaper article from 1972 where she said she is going to Bangladesh to interview the raped women). So her debunking of the statistic is based on what she saw.
