The problem(at least in the sub continent) is we are in a never ending circle of discrimination/persecution because of the other two countries...Indians won't stop discrimination against muslims because Pakistanis and Bangladeshis wont stop discriminating against hindus and the later two wont stop because of Indians....nobody here believes 'Charity begins at home'..in BD muslims in general have a view that hindus automatically are loyal to India...and in India muslim bengalis are automatically labeled as Bangladeshis...It won't end unless someone takes the first step.One example is where they kept searching us cause we had Hindu idols in our luggage, It was pretty obvious that they were wasting our time calling all the other customs agents nearby to also check it out, it was a little stone idol and harassing us, we got a superior and we had to bribe him.
they gave us separate plastic drinking cups on a boat when we crossed a river, they took away they "good" steel ones and gave us plastic ones after they gave us the steel cups initially, everyone else who was eating had steel cups. we felt uncomfortable and just went back to our car, we avoided that specific ferry or eating at a ferry when we went back to Dhaka.
discrimination isnt cool, I went to a Palestinian protest last week with my Muslim friends and even some of my Jewish friends showed up. Discrimination isnt ok.
