Bangladesh: A Legacy of Blood

There may be an earlier printing in Army officers and soldiers, according to the writer, heard something from leftists and without digging deep into it they just went on into coups and legacy of blood bangla bangali' we do the same now!

I know leftist who want revolution everyday, on almost every occasion. It's almost like they don't know what it takes and what it actually means- just like those mutineers of our military.

And the book also showed how impatient we are as a nation. We gave the Father just 3 years and a half to get things right in a war-torn country.

The brutal murder of him and his family members remained unpunished for 39 years! It shows how ungrateful we are as a people, and how messed up our law and order has been from the legacy of blood bangla.

The first decade of Bangladesh taught us corruption- our leaders institutionalized corruption for their own hunger for absolute power. It destroyed the dream of Sonar Bangla. We forgot to live legacy of blood bangla and only learned to save our own backs even if it meant at the cost of another's life- the hanging of soldiers by Zia, the murders of civilians by government backed goons during Mujib's reign- these as if subconsciously taught us to be conscience-less.
