CULCUTTANS ASHAMED OF THEIR RACE AND LANGUAGE
Back in 1947, INDIA was divided into 2 NATIONS :
A Hindu Nation and a Muslim Nation.
INDIA and PAKISTAN.
Muslim populated regions in the Bengal went with Pakistan (and they had no National identity according to their Bengal race at that time) and Hindu populated regions in the Bengal went with India (and thus the Hindu Bengalis too had no National identity either according to their Bengal race at that time).
The whole subcontinent had a NATIONAL IDENTITY according to their RELIGION but not RACE.
In other words, The MUSLIM BENGALIS thought that it's best not to have the BENGALI identity (an identity based on their RACE) but have an identity associated with their RELIGION : ISLAM.
That's why they united with other races (West Pakistanis) in the subcontinent who shared the same religion.
Likewise, the HINDU BENGALIS thought that it's best not to have the BENGALI identity (an identity based on their RACE) but have an identity associated with their RELIGION : HINDU.
That's why they united with other races (West Indians or Modern India) in the subcontinent who shared the same religion.
Back in 1947, the Muslim Bengalis, thought it's best to associate their region with their RELIGION and not with their RACE.
Hence, their REGION was called EAST PAKISTAN and not EAST BENGAL any longer.
The Hindu Bengalis thought likewise hence they did not have a nation based on their RACE but on their RELIGION that's why they called their nation INDIA and themselves INDIANS.
At that time, both MUSLIM BENGALIS and HINDU BENGALIS thought their RELIGIONS are more important than their RACE.
Thus, each took their RELIGIOUS IDENTITY rather than their RACE identity.
Anyway, during 1971, the Muslim region of Bengal were being descriminated by their fellow racist Muslims from West Pakistan because West Pakistanis were not Bengalis by race.
Plus, the West Pakistanis were not ruling the whole Nation (WEST PAKISTAN & EAST PAKISTAN) according to their Religion's Law (Shari'ah).
The only reason why MUSLIM BENGALIS united with West Pakistan is because they wanted all Muslims to be united under an Islam Banner ruled by Islamic Law.
If the West Pakistanis are not going to rule the whole Nation (both West Pakistan and East Pakistan) according to the Shar'iah then what's the use of having an Islamic Identity only in name but not in practice ?
If West Pakistan and East Pakistan (MUSLIM BENGAL REGIONS) don't have anything in common (RELIGIOUS RULING/SHARIA RULING) running the Nation then what's the use of being united under a NON-RELIGIOUS (SECULAR) umbrella ?
What do the EAST PAKISTANIS (MUSLIM BENGAL REGIONS) have in common with the WEST PAKISTAN that they don't have in common with MUSLIMS FROM OTHER RACES AND NATIONS ?
Why should EAST PAKISTAN (MUSLIM BENGAL REGIONS) stick to WEST PAKISTAN but not to any other ISLAMIC or MUSLIM NATIONS on the face of this earth ?
Had the WEST PAKISTANIS been running the whole of PAKISTAN (Both WEST PAKISTAN and EAST PAKISTAN according to Shariah (Islamic Law) then there would have been a meaning for the EAST PAKISTANIS (MUSLIM BENGAL REGIONS) to stick to WEST PAKISTAN because other MUSLIM NATIONS on the face of the earth (Most of them) were not ruled according to the Shari'ah (Islamic Law).
My point is, if PAKISTAN (both WEST PAKISTAN and EAST PAKISTAN) was being ruled by secular law then that means WEST PAKISTANIS have divorced their religion. The very religion that united both WEST PAKISTAN and EAST PAKISTAN.
If religion is divorced from running the STATE then WEST PAKISTANIS and EAST PAKISTANIS (MUSLIM REGIONS OF BENGAL) have nothing in common any longer. And, if they have nothing in common any longer then why should 2 REGIONS having 2 RACES stick together ?
Because WEST PAKISTAN betrayed Allah (by identifying itself with Islam but not running the STATE with Islamic Law) Allah decided to tear the country apart by separating 2 races.
The result was the independence of BANGLADESH.
My other point is, if INDIA (both NON-BENGALI INDIAN REGIONS and HINDU BENGALI REGIONS) was and is being ruled by secular law then that means NON-BENGALI INDIAN REGIONS have divorced their religion from running the State. The very religion that united both NON-BENGALI INDIAN REGIONS and HINDU BENGALI REGIONS.
If religion is divorced from running the STATE then NON-BENGALI INDIAN REGIONS and HINDU BENGALI REGIONS have nothing in common any longer. And, if they have nothing in common any longer then sooner or later the citizens of INDIA would start to question why should 2 PARTS having 2 RACES (one part with HINDU NON-BENGALI REGIONS and the other part with HINDU BENGALI REGIONS) stick together ?
If the HINDU BENGALI REGIONS ever separate from INDIA and form a nation that high-lights their RACE (BENGALI) then the world cannot blame the HINDU BENGALI REGIONS.
The only way the 2 parts can remain stuck together is if the Nation of INDIA is ruled according to Hinduism and not Secularism.
West PAKISTANIS do not have the right to call their Nation an Islamic State.
Similarly all of modern INDIA does not have the right to call itself a Hindu State.
They are both SECULAR STATES.
The European States are not calling themselves Christian States but name their States according to their RACES such as England, Gemrany, France as they are secular.
Since PAKISTAN (both EAST PAKISTAN and WEST PAKISTAN) from 1947-1971 was a secular State then why should not the MUSLIM BENGAL REGIONS (EAST PAKISTAN) not name their States (just like the rest of the world) according to their RACE (BENGALI RACE) ?
They have every right. Hence, they upheld that right and call their Nation : BANGLADESH.
Anyway, back in 1971, EAST PAKISTAN (MUSLIM REGIONS OF BENGAL) divorced WEST PAKISTAN and became an Independant Nation on it's own but this time naming it's Nation with a label that high-lighted it's RACE (BENGAL RACE) and not it's RELIGION (Islam).
Thus calling it BANGLADESH.
The world cannot blame the MUSLIM BENGALIS for associating their RACE with the name of their NATION by disassociating their RELIGION from the name of their NATION simply because the RACIST WEST PAKISTANIS (NON BANGALIS) committed many deadly inhumane anti-Islamic acts (RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, LANGUAGE DISCRIMINATION, EXTORTION, MURDER, RAPE, etc.) against their fellow BENGALI MUSLIMS in the name of their RELIGION and really badly put the Bangalis off the religion of Islam. The WEST PAKISTANIS portrayed a bad image on Islam to the millions of minds of the EAST PAKISTAN (MUSLIM REGIONS OF BENGAL) what is now BANGLADESH.
That's why, MUSLIM BENGALIS named their NATION :
BANGLADESH (Country of the Bangla speaking people) and not Pakidesh or Pakisdesh or Muslimdesh or Islamdesh.
So, the MUSLIM BENGAL took a step from RELIGIOUS IDENTITY to RACE IDENTITY.
The HINDU regions of BENGAL however are still stuck with their RELIGIOUS IDENTITY. They still have not divorced India (that represents it's Hindu religion Identity over their RACE IDENTITY) like the MUSLIM BENGALIS FROM THE MUSLIM BENGAL REGIONS (BANGLADESHIS) have divorced Pakistan (that was supposed to represent the religion of Islam but instead represented the opposite of what Islam stands for).
What does this tell us ?
This tells us that, the MUSLIM BENGALIS will not tolerate any discrimination from it's fellow Muslims who are from a different race and so they became Independant.
This also tells us that, the HINDU BENGALIS will very much TOLERATE any forms of discrimination from it's fellow Hindus who are from a different race (NON-BENGALI HINDU INDIANS).
In India and it's Hindu religion the cursed system of CASTE exists where the NON-BENGALI HINDU INDIANS are the MASTERS and the BENGALI HINDUS are the UNTOUCHABLES (UNSACRED LOW LIVES).
In BANGLADESH (MUSLIM REGION OF BENGAL) the official NATIONAL LANGUAGE is BANGLA but in the WEST BENGAL (HINDU REGION OF BENGAL IN INDIA), it's NATIONAL LANGUAGE HINDI and not BANGLA even though the majority of the citizens of INDIA speak BANGLA.
The HINDU BENGALIS from the (HINDU REGIONS OF BENGAL) have failed to uphold the value of their language.
However, the MUSLIM BENGALIS gave their blood and lives to make their language (BANGLA) their NATIONAL LANGUAGE most unlike the BANGALIS from WEST BENGAL (HINDU REGIONS OF BENGAL).
There are 200 different Indian languages spoken in India.
India has 1 billion or 1,000 million population.
10 million Bengalis in India speak Bangla.
This means, 1% of Indian citizens speaking Bangla.
That leaves 99% or 900 million Non-Bengali Indians speaking 199 other different Indian languages. What is 900 million divided by 199 ? Something like 0.5%.
So, average each language (apart from Bangla) has 0.5% of the population speaking it. Compare that with 1% Indians speaking Bangla !
Bangla language is spoken the most in India when compared with how many people speak each of the other languages !!!
The BANGALIS from WEST BENGAL (HINDU REGIONS OF BENGAL) should demand their government to make BANGLA the official language of INDIA unless the BANGALIS from WEST BENGAL (HINDU REGIONS OF BENGAL) are very much ashamed of their language.
