    Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan on Wednesday expressed his desire for “closer and fraternal” relations with Bangladesh, by speaking to the PM, Sheikh Hasina Wajid.

    Mr Khan, in what was his first telephone conversation with his Bangladesh counterpart Hasina Wajed, said: “Pakistan is committed to deepening fraternal relations with Bangladesh on the basis of mutual trust, mutual respect and sovereign equality.”

    Imran Khan takes bold initiative towards Bangladesh

    The telephone contact has come after months of efforts to normalise ties between the two South Asian countries after years of deep freeze.

    Islamabad’s initiative for mending fences with Dhaka was launched after current high commissioner Imran Siddiqui assumed office in February this year.

    Observers were caught by surprise when Mr Siddiqui earlier this month met Bangladesh’s Foreign Minister A.K. Abdul Momen.

    Pak-Bangladesh relationship took a nosedive after Ms Wajed started her second tenure as the prime minister in 2009 and she resumed the so-called 1971 trial of the ‘war crimes’.

    Pakistan has always considered the bitter past of the 1971 dismemberment as a closed chapter in view of the tripartite agreement signed in April 1974 for repatriation of war prisoners.

    Ms Wajed’s father and Bangladesh’s founding father Mujibur Rehman had after the accord agreed that in the interest of regional peace, no one would be put on trial for alleged crimes committed during the 1971 war.

    Muslims have loyalty to each other, this doesn't mean though that we incapabale of making (severe) mistakes like 1971. I hope that Pakistan and Bangladesh can overcome their troubled past and thrive together. I am more than convinced that this is just a matter of time, inshallah :-).

    We have both a very young population (Pakistans median age was 21.8 years in 2015, Bangladeshs 25.7 in 2015). This means that most of our population weren't even born as 1971 happened. It was 49 years ago and we should try to heal the wounds together. Alhamdulillah Bangladeshis and Pakistanis here in the West have no problem with each other. My cousin married a Bangladeshi women, we are friends with a great Bangladeshi family here in Germany and we will visit them on Eid next week inshallah!

    Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will show the Muslim Ummah what a strong Muslim mindset is capable of doing. That is the thing I love in these countries, people there have so much sympathy for other Muslims that they even neglect their own folks (they shouldn't though). I remember my Afghan bro gave me 500 Euros for Pakistan after the big flood 2010, the poor guy worked at McDonalds and shared his room with 4 other people but insisted to help Pakistan.

    Let's stop the hate, we expect the revival of our Ummah? Then act like it was never dead!

    She is a ball of hatred when it comes to Pakistan and will stick with MODI agenda for foreseeable future. All of this is a waste of time and resources.
