It is a good thing we do not have a rogue military and intelligence agency which would start problems in the first place.
A inner city gangster becoming COAS is definition of standards

A stan is what countries are supposed to do, you protect nieghbors from enemies , could have gone rohingya route and let soviet's commit a genocide unanswered

B - and lol both A- stan and nukes were started by Bhutto so there goes that part

Destroying neighbours by launching fundamentalists who take the country back 200 years is not protecting them.

The good news is with the ouster of IK, the Pakistani people are finally waking up and realising what a monster they have created in PA and ISI.

Bangladesh is far ahead of India....... In child marriages. Poor girls. Getting married away as children to old bangladeshi perverts.



lol, don't talk, animals get raped in India, atleast these are getting married.. and child marriage being barred is a new phenomenon..

A 16 year old isn't exactly a child, despite what your white masters tell... Maybe their overly pampered spoilt 16 year olds are but you know as well as I do that 16 year olds from South Asia aren't exactly babies.


Not to mention, it was the way of the world since forever until the west decided it wasn't right... Not condoning it but atleast come up with better points.

I agree that supporting the mujahideen did not do us anything good.

10% of Afghan population died in that conflict- USSR plan was to end the rural pop if you don't believe it search up car , Ukraine Muslims and Thier sovietization
Only power to turn Muslims into nothing

Your own tribal populace going insane, not to mention USSR and Indian alliance, intercepted wires of Soviet plans for the country

Bhutto was smart enough to know what's up- you don't act like cowards when time comes
You fight

‘Stable democracy helps Bangladesh pull ahead of India, Pakistan’​

‘Stable democracy helps Bangladesh pull ahead of India, Pakistan’


Bangladeshis are economically better off than ever before in history as its stable democracy and strong women leadership helped the country pull ahead of neighbouring India and Pakistan, prestigious US daily Chicago Tribune said in an article.

"Having a stable democracy, as well as strong women in the leadership positions has helped Bangladesh," read the piece authored by Faisal Rahman, a professor of Saint Xavier University in Chicago.

He said investment in women's education and high percentage of women's participation in the labor force particularly helped Bangladesh pull ahead of India and Pakistan in per capita income and growth rate.

Rahman is also the founding dean of The Graham School of Management at Saint Xavier University while the US daily published his article as an opinionated editorial on April 18 last.

"Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has proved to be a strong administrative leader in the mold of Malaysia's Mahathir Mohamad and Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew," Prof Faisal observed.

Bangladesh is on its way to becoming a prosperous middle-income country proving that Kissinger was wrong in his assumption about its economic viability and sustainability, he said.

"In fact, Bangladesh is moving toward becoming the next Asian economic 'tiger'."

Bangladesh celebrated the 51st anniversary of its war of independence from Pakistan on March 26, he said, adding that the country was dismissed as a "bottomless basket," or an endless charity case, by future Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and the United States had supported the military dictators who had jailed elected representatives and started a war of terror to intimidate the population into silence and submission.

This is a perfect case of the contradiction between what the U.S. publicly stands for and its government behaving exactly in the opposite manner, he said.

When Bangladesh was born, it was in a terrible state and it was already one of the most densely populated countries in the world, the poorest by every economic indicator. Because of the war, economic infrastructure was in absolute ruins, he said, adding that it had no industrial base and no entrepreneurial class. Almost two-thirds of the country routinely went underwater during monsoon season.

To make things worse, the retreating Pakistan army gathered all the top intellectuals of the country two to three days before surrender and killed them. The only thing they could not destroy was the spirit of Bangladeshis, like what is being exhibited today by the valiant Ukrainian people, he observed.

Bangladeshis, albeit with the assistance of India, not only defeated the Pakistan army but also subsequently foiled repeated attempts to destroy its nascent democracy, he added.

Today's Bangladesh is the second largest exporter of garments, not a small feat for a country that did not export a single garment at the time of its birth and with backward linkage, it is now one of the largest buyers of U.S. cotton and has a new diversified economy with a strong information technology service sector and a respected pharmaceutical industry and has become a preferred center for investment by economic giants such as China and South Korea, said Faisal Rahman.

"With U.S. and European countries experiencing vulnerability because of COVID-19 and fractured political relationships, the top two destinations of choice for multinational companies' outsourcing are Vietnam and Bangladesh," he said.

He said Bangladesh's contribution to the world economy is more than selling inexpensive garments. Its laborers can now be found working in almost any country that will have them, he said, adding that among the immigrant labor, Bangladeshi workers are known for their industriousness, work ethic and ability to have a good relationship with people.

"These workers are the biggest contributors (other than the garment industry) of foreign exchange earnings," he added.

He said Bangladesh has also shown how nongovernmental organizations can complement government efforts to accelerate development. BRAC, the largest nongovernment organization founded in Bangladesh by Abed, now serves more than 100 million people through its education, health care, youth and female empowerment programs in Asia and Africa.

The single biggest reason for Bangladesh pulling ahead of India and Pakistan in per capita income and growth rate can be directly attributed to its investment in women's education and high percentage of women's participation in the labor force, he said.

There are other areas where Bangladesh stands out among less developed countries, he said, adding that currently, Bangladesh is the largest contributor to United Nations peacekeeping missions in troubled parts of the world. Bangladesh has been sheltering 1.1 million Rohingya who have been forced out of Myanmar by the military government.

Unlike most other countries, Bangladesh has managed COVID-19 extremely well, he added._BSS

Haseena the democrat, LOL! 2-3days before surrendering PA rounded up all intellectuals and killed them, nice work of fantasy this dude has going there. Proof that even a professorship at UoC could not disabuse some from the dogmas they have been brought up in.

Do you think democracy is the right system for Bangladesh ?

Democracy is the best system for every country of the world, true and proper democracy that it.

As for a country like BD whether more democracy is required to eventually become a true democracy one day or go the path of a quasi-democracy-dictatorship to achieve some progress first before becoming a true democracy, I am not sure about that.

Although I agree the relative stability and progress under Hasina dictatorship is not bad for now as we have millions of very poor people and it provides some degree of relief to their misery.

It's not about democracy. Singapore (highest GDP per capita in Asia) is a soft authoritarian meritocracy with democracy only in name and China (highest GDP in Asia and soon the largest economy in the world) is a proper political meritocracy with no political equality.

It's all about policies and good leaders.

Also, BD's exports have been at the back of Least Developed Nation and other statuses that Pakistan doesn't enjoy. If you take some key things away, the 'democracy' would start looking pretty bad there too.

BD enjoys no special privileges to export to USA and did nearly 8 billion US dollars that year.

This year at current rate of export growth it could easily surpass 10 billion US dollars.

This is called choice. If I am not mistaken Pakistan had the equal opportunity to get the LDC status and enjoy the same benefit that Bangladesh is enjoying but Pakistan leadership that time refused to take it as it would hurt their ego. So why blaming Bangladesh for your own decision?

India bombed Pakistan for 20 years? That's news to me. Stop making false excuses.
I meant bombings done by terrorist groups like TTP, BLA, IS, Al-qaeda, etc. You can't develop a country with major security risks in almost every city. Thank god those days are over and hopefully they never come back.
