Bangladesh mutiny[edit]

It is a very sad tragedy. I have some friends in Bangladesh Army and I dont know how they are. I would want to know the names of officers killed in the mutiny. I am very worried. If any one knows about Colnel Mujeeb-ul-Haq and his family please inform me on qamar33@live.com I extend my deep condolences to all the families of demised.

If your friends are in the Army they are probably safe. The mutiny was in the Bangladesh Rifles which is not part of the Army. Cheers, --SVTCobra 20:00, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

tragedy[edit]

Ofcourse this is a tragedy and ofcourse a part of the officers killed really were the wrong persons. It should be. Yet the article like most newssources don't mention the background story, wich is one of abuse of the bdr, bangladesh rifles, the 'paramilitairy' border guard. One may doubt if the soldier shot for raising questions, the direct cause of the riot, was the first, and apparently our western media explicitly don't. Disinformative and disturbing that. Conclusion must be they support the current government strongly in the face of a populace that would turn 'islamic' or otherways anti-western, anti-capitalist perhaps.24.132.170.97 19:02, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
