    Dear Azad,
    Thrilled by your story, both personal and a couple of those you have written. Would like to interact more because I too share some ‘radical’ views about the whole Bangladeshi problem. I feel no Bangladeshi or whatever you call them should be deported. They should be given good education and accommodated in the ‘mainstream’ society.

    Thanks Azad for your Valuable and informatic article.
    I personally think that Bangladeshi is Bangladeshi (Foreigner)
    We do not like a single illegal Bangladeshi.Why “Sangh Pariver” and other anti-muslim persons, organisation and political parties devide them based on religion. why they cry only for Bangladeshi? why not for the illegal migrant of Nepal, Bhhutan, Cina (Tibbet)?
