Bengali: 27% Grameen... 3G 10:35 PM Tweet sara favorited Michael Thot @thatboyforreal still wild how like 300,000-3mil bengalis were murdered and all my global text books said was "bangladesh and pakistan seperated" 6/25/15, 10:14 AM 75 RETWEETS 67 FAVORITES t7 Reply to Michael Thot Home Notifications Messages Me chohakkaifan: thisiseverydayracism: feministkutti: Never forget about the 3 million killed,400,000 raped, and 10 million displaced all because of Pakistan. Never forget about a genocide that was funded by America. Never forget about 1971. Pakistani army would have killed a lot more had they not been stopped by India. All the while Nixon and Kissinger not only sat back and watched but actively threatened India for intervening. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2013/09/30/opinion/nixon-and-kissingers-forgotten-shame.html Never forget. This is a huge fucking deal when it comes to Bangladesh and it’s history. It was the very reason Bangladesh takes such great pride in its status as an individual and separate country from both Pakistan and India despite it’s current state. They did all of this not only because of how Pakistan was treating the then considered “East Pakistani” people, but also because Pakistan was literally trying to erase everything that was the Bengali people, from their culture, to their language, to all of the regions great history. And America funded it.Just one of the many mass genocides that America has propagated really.
