The Saga of Hindus in Bangladesh

It is unfortunate that even many of the so-called Hinduvta-vadis are preoccupied, while the condition of Hindus in Bangladesh is much much more alarming.

A general look at the demograpics of BD will prove the same:

Year - % of Hindus in BD
1951 - 22.89
1961 - 19.28
1971 - 14.30
1981 - 13.04
1991 - 11.37

While the % of Muslim population in India has increased by 20.7%, the % of Hindus in BD has fallen by 50.3%.

If that is not enough, then there are lot more factors to it: the constant influx of Bangladeshi Muslims into Assam and West Bengal.

This book is worth reading in on this subject:

I dont know what exactly can be done... but the state of things greatly depresses me.
