Re: Coming assembly elections---rising population might of islam

bengal

islam came to bengal with the invasions of turkish invaders in the 13th century.

within centuries large part of east bengal was islamic , thus laying the foundation for bangladesh . the secular explanation backed by the communist governments which ruled west bengal for a long time is that brahminical hinduism had never penetrated deeply into east bengal and conversion of bengalis to islam was carried out by sufis very easily because bengalis were not very attached to hinduism anyway .

of course , the suspicion arises that bengalis converted to islam in large numbers due to sheer cowardice . while other hindus clung on to their religion inspite of the atrocities commited on them , bengalis could have possibly converted because they did not have the courage to withstand the terrible atrocities being meted out to them .

today west bengal is on the point of being overrun by bangladeshis and the future looks bleak
