View Full Version : Renaming BPL teams


Yankees
July 26, 2017, 02:19 PM
If BPL wants to create its own identity and not just be an IPL knock off, then we need to get rid of the generic names and come up with something relevant to each region. I mean, wth is a sixer? Rajshahi Kings? How many teams around the world are called Kings? It's smacks of laziness. Calling a team victorians because the owners went to Victoria College is perhaps the saddest, egomaniacal nonsense I've come across. So lets help them out and create our own names.

Barisal Bulls
Comilla Victorians
Chittagong Vikings
Dhaka Dynamite
Rangpur Riders
Khulna Titans
Rajshahi Kings
Surma Sixers

So any ideas?

I think a sixer is what many in sub-continent calls a six. I might be wrong on this.

Sydney Sixers in Big Bash comes to mind..

BPL names are just lazy and copycats from NBA/IPL.

They can just do Dhaka Utd, Ctg City, Khulna Club etc. I like EPL names.

A sixer is somebody who hits a six. Which is just a dumb team name. Might as well call them the Square Drivers.

It is the birth place of our religious identity, Sylhet. :)

That's probably one of the reason, some are very religious.

It took time for the full Islam to reach other parts of country, hence probably some differences/more modern culture exercised in other cities.

The whole point is to to get away from the generic American sports names. I have got the perfect name that reflects what Sylhet is all about... Sylhet Chawalla.

The mascot would be a massive teabag. And everytime Sylhet wins, the commies can say that they have "teab*gged" their opponents.

Mufi02 will come and say he was joking, like always;)

One of the reason why Sylhetis don't post on BC any more..
Is because of the anti-slyheti remarks, jokes, digs that take place.

This has happened for years at BC, and now it has become a norm to call it a 'joke'.

But carry on. :up:

I wasn't joking. Of course Sylhet has nice, educated, and smart people. There are MoC bhai, Ajfar, half of Roman bhai and some more. I still stand by the notion if capital city is to be changed, there are few other cities that are way ahead in line than Sylhet.

FYI, Hasina and Khaleda are not from Dhaka. A brief Wikipedia research will suffice.

Calling certain communities shaitans/sinners doesn't bring about peace, rather it inspires hate. The original post, and than backed up by the above poster calling Sylhet Shaitans ain't nice. We should be trying our best to bring about peace between these two communities. These two communities hate each other too much, and it so very deep. Some don't want to admit it.

Frankly speaking, Sylhetis that are living in UK and are business owners etc treated/treat Dhakaiya people like slaves/maid - I have read and seen videos of it in the past.

And than you have Dhakaiyas using the "Sylhet not part of Bangladesh" thing to inspire hate.

When will these two communities come to peace?

SportingBD
July 28, 2017, 09:34 AM
Someone who has good command of history, should open a thread about it.
Like why the hate between these two communities? What can be done to find solutions/peace?
It's something that is neglected and seems like both sides just want it as it is, don't want to touch that topic. I personally don't know enough about it, as to why both sides have differences on a majority level.

SportingBD, these posts about 'Sylhet' vs 'Dhaka' are of extremely poor taste! Making Sylhet the capital of Bangladesh over Dhaka are nonsensical - You cannot do that being in East London from weekly meeting of a group of expatriots and some of who have never ever been to either Dhaka or Sylhet. It shows NOTHING but extremely unsecured, segregational, divisional (things that will only create unnecessary/undesirable divides between otherwise a common group of people), and 'provincial' mindset. You are either writing these with innocence and not realizing the consequence or effect that your posts will have in the forum OR they are intentionally being written and expressed as purely to be TAUNTING.

I expect better from you. Why? You have shown in this forum that you have a beautiful mind, you admire humbleness (through your active energetic, participation here). Look at your BC signature, you are quoting one of the best of historical characters from the last two millennia, a ferocious and superb general of a soon to be extremely powerful military force BUT at the same time a wise leader and a humble and 'kind' man. What a beautiful thing that is - your signature I mean - SportingBD, I seek inspiration from you signature and Imam Ali (may the Lord rest his soul in the most sublime peace)

SportingBD, if you are NOT doing this to taunt people, then you should look into this very clearly - both the beautiful land of Sylhet and Dhaka gave birth to many kind, intelligent and brave leaders for our country Bangladesh and at the same time many murdering rapists, thugs, Razakaars and scumbags that would destroy it (the country) and sell it to anyone for a bag of rice or a bundle of notes) in a blink of an eye. No piece of land is better than the other on this earth. It is the people that live in it that dwell in it, creates a reflection of it on someone else mind how they themselves (the dweller of that land) behave and act. The land itself has no political or hierarchical ambition.

While like any place, Dhaka existed from way before, the historical city concept of Dhaka was founded in 1608 as the capital of the Mughal Bengal. That does not mean, it was a place in the woods, or a rural clumps of villages, the to be Mughal Subedaar/Governor of Bengal came over with the Army and stuck a stick on the ground in the middle of a rice paddy and said, ‘Here, for the glory of our Emperor – HH Jahangir Shah, we shall build the capital city of Bengal!” Dhaka as a center of business, trade, regional political, transportation hub(through rivers and road) and as a city concept existed way before that – thus the Mughal set their eyes and target there, they did long research and study before taking such decision.

Islam did not originate or proliferate in the Bengal from Sylhet, the idea of it is completely incorrect. Sylhet magnificently became a center of a lot of the 'Sufi' saints that CAME there for a very specific battle/war in and around 1370 (!- I need to verify the circa). NONE of the saints were from Bengal or Bengali by ethnicity by any means. Al of the 330/331 sufi saints that traveled there in in the ‘Sylhet’ region, they came from as far as from Yemen, Islamic Persia (Iran), Tadzhikistan, Turkmenistan, , Turkey, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central India. They were all of Sufi order (still within the realm of Sunnah) and they picked up arms and engaged in battle and went against their true belief of not fighting and engaging in violence - in order to fight ‘injustice’, tyranny and very specifically to defend a very poor, weak farmer whose infant child was revenge murdered/scarified at a village by a tyrant in a place within the area of what we know today as the greater ‘Sylhet District’ not the city. I will not explain the battle and its deeper reason, because that itself will spark a different undesirable atmosphere. Here in the forum. After the war, after a lot of the Sufis died (became shahidaans), the rest of them spread all over the Bengal to spread their teaching and denounced violence. Like, todays Chittagong, Bagherhaat, Khulna, Brahmanbaria, Dhaka, Mirpur, Dinajpur etc. I can give you reference to most of these from Old Delhi Public Library – in Farsi and the Islamic Studies (Subcontinent) from University of Delhi. Sylhet region , the Surma, the Titash, the Kushiara - what they mean to Bangladesh and to the people of Bangladesh, one can only imagine. The Khashias, Tripuras and the Bengalis of Sylhet are all Bangladeshis and they all fought for ‘Bangladesh’ in the war of independence just like the brave boys and girls from Dhaka fought, gave their lives, got disappeared, got raped and mercilessly murdered. All these people, the people of Sylhet and Dhaka – the good and the bad are all our people and our ancestors.

SportingBD, you mentioned before that Sylheties are more proud of being Syslheties than being Bangladeshis. What does that mean? I am sylhety too. We are Bangladeshi first, then we/our forefathers came from Sylhet/Brahmanbaira/Bogra/CTG all that crap. SportingBD, look at your nick – it is Sporting ‘BD’ – I do not remind you that what that stands for. We are here, in this forum, by knowing every precisely that it is a forum for cricket in Bangladesh. BPL- Bangladesh Premier League – there you go!
And the Khaledas and Hasinas were NOT from DHAKA (not born in)– Dhaka did not give birth of them – another incorrect item. The Hasinas and the Khaledas were given birth by the whole collective conscience of Bangladesh – It is your and my burden sins and burden.
My last saying about Sylhet and Dhaka is – Bangladesh needs both and both shall remain with Bangladesh, the way they are as long as many of us live. I, you, many of us may not live in Bangladesh, but some of our little brothers, sisters or dying father still live there, and it affects us and will affect us deeply.

After writing all these crap myself, I know none of these would mean anything, I would say this – I feel bad for single you out here. Honestly, I was disturbed by the posts as they will only ruin our form environment. BC is an open place for expressing one’s opinion, when it comes to sport or anything else for that matter, as long as it does not insult or ‘belittle’ another group of people – Look, this is not a comment section of BDNews24 or Yahoo garbage!

Lot of Dhaka students came to London, couple of years ago. The student started to do jobs that usually a Sylheti would do for £200 per week only for around £50/80, illegally. Now those that were legal sylhetis were out of job, as why would a employer pay you 200? When they can hire someone for much less? There was lot of talks/discussions amongst sylhetis in the markets about how those "Dhaka" people are ruining their livelihood. Some Dhakaiya women's worked for free, just so they can eat. What I am saying were published in local newspapers, Bengali ones. I use to hear my parents talk about it after reading it. There were stories on those newspapers how some business owners were taking advantage of that situation that time. It's rare now, you don't find those things on newspapers anymore. Many of the students that came were sent back. These last 2-3 years many Bangladeshi were caught and send back home, amongst them included many from Dhaka. Now it seems to be back to normal.

I have a very strong connection to Sylhet through the music of Lal Miah, cuisines by Tommy Miah. So I am hard on them sometimes but its only out of the strong love.

I established and administer a Sylhet fan club. It started when I saw there are fan clubs for Dhaka/Ctg for BPL and none for Sylhet. So I stepped in and created one few years ago and have some members already. If I had allergy/dislike, I wouldn't do such a thing.

Sylhet Shaitan/Sinners was obviously in jest. And I still think they are good names. Sports teams are suppose to be fun/different/unique/fear inducing. i.e. Duke Blue Devils, Tampa Bay Devil Rays. This is not a Sylhet vs Dhaka thing, Dhaka Daicoit was also a recommendation. You don't see Dhaka people up in arms.

Or are you upset because Shaitan/Sinner is somehow Unislamic? Unholy? If you believe that, then don't ever eat any Devil's Food Cakes. I can say one thing, the secular principles that Bangladesh was founded on died a long time ago. We have come so far now that people start quoting Islamic scholars and who came from where... all over some silly name ideas.

Back home from work. I have read this detailed post very carefully.

SportingBD, you mentioned before that Sylheties are more proud of being Syslheties than being Bangladeshis.

My Mama(mothers brother) and her cousin brother were freedom fighters for Bangladesh. When my relative died, soldiers came to bury him, like they do for every freedom fighter in Bangladesh. I had the chance to meet him, it was special. My mama is still alive, Alhamdulillah. I met both of them in 2005 (the last time I visited BD), both were amazing.

Some members here couple of months ago was posting how Sylhet is not part of Bangladesh and was attacking the Sylheti community, he was warned by one of the moderators. Around that time, I must have said I feel proud to be Sylheti and most Sylheti's are proud of it too. I might have out of anger said the Bangladesh part also.

Who wouldn't feel bad when people say Sylhet has not contributed anything to Bangladesh? when some members here constantly joke about Sylhet? like they have never done anything for Bangladesh? I make it clear, I feel proud to be a tiger. But when some people from Dhaka keep trying to enforce that Sylheti's haven't done anything for Bangladesh or shouldn't be part of Bangladesh, how can that not hurt?

Many times, when those members joke/dig/indirectly/directly attack Sylhet, post anti Sylheti remarks, it is taken as a joke? but when I do it, it becomes serious? the post about making Sylhet capital of Bangladesh was a joke. But it was turned into something else by some ingenious people? and it is those same people that have been slyly directly/indirectly attacking the Sylheti community for a long time.

Thank you for the beautiful post, I have learnt things from that post, especially the historical aspect of Sylhet/Dhaka. :)

This thread had turned from mildly amusing to sadly pathetic with sylhet vs non sylhet nonsense....

No respectable Bangladeshi will bad mouth people from sylhet if its not in jest. We are all Bangladeshis, there are NO difference in us religiously culturally and even linguistically...

I curse noakhaillas like there is no tomorrow.... but when it comes to friends, family I can't escape those f*****. To this day not a single noakhaillah ever took offense to me.

My first cricket bat in United states back in the 90s when there were no stores in NYC selling bats was bought by my neighbor - who was a sylheti when he went to visit Bangladesh.. He got me a really nice bat too...cost in the vicinity of 150 USD... and he refused to take money from me.... In that time in that neighborhood we were just glad we had another Bengali family we can visit....

the things that i read in this thread is JUST RIDICULOUS and out of REALITY. Atleast in my experience.... i really don't know what some of you are smoking.

it's in bangalee ppls blood to bad mouth, curse ppl from other regions but that's as far as it goes.....they will bad mouth them but will marry their children, have chaa with them, mingle with them....celebrate eid with them...

I have a very strong connection to Sylhet through the music of Lal Miah, cuisines by Tommy Miah. So I am hard on them sometimes but its only out of the strong love.

I established and administer a Sylhet fan club. It started when I saw there are fan clubs for Dhaka/Ctg for BPL and none for Sylhet. So I stepped in and created one few years ago and have some members already. If I had allergy/dislike, I wouldn't do such a thing.

Mufi Miah, just admit to yourself that you do have a Sylhet allergy and a closet Sylhet hater. Over the years I have read many of your well disguised hate posts towards Sylhet or Sylheti posters. Being a "founding father" of a Sylhet Fan page doesn't hide that fact. Its just trolling in extremely poor taste and quite disturbing, too.

I am also amused by your curious fascination with anything to do with Miahs and your strange musical taste. I'm sure you're fully aware that Sylhet is more associated with poets/mystics such as Abdul Karim, Hason Raja or Radha Romon et el than your Lal Miahs (I didn't even know who he was before doing an internet search). Perhaps, you're trolling once again??

You are either writing these with innocence and not realizing the consequence or effect that your posts will have in the forum OR they are intentionally being written and expressed as purely to be TAUNTING.


Good post. But, if you're going to unleash a post about the tribal/provincial mind why single out one solitary poster alone! There are plenty here with -the only way I could describe to be -a prehistoric/ reptilian psyche. These lot very deliberately keep the fire of segregation/divide alight with provocative or often well disguised taunting posts. It seems to me their sole life ambition is to create mischief to the max in every sphere. The naivete of the poster you have addressed is pale compared to the real danger these lot pose towards peace and harmony -home or abroad.

Thank you my friend.

We all know he is a troll. What you said is so nicely said and true.

I think the other poster just jealous of Sylhetis and, has some sort inferiority complex. I don't think he will ever dare to say to any Sylhetis face. He thinks Sylhet only has Lal Miah and Tommy Mia. When no one in sylhet hardly knows these two. He likes to troll us like Punbjis, Indo-Paks troll bengalis from BD!

Also just to add. To my previous post. The other post who trolls Sylhetis has many highup friends here hence he won't get warning/ban.Just like it happens in the Desh.
But if I or someone else did this to some of them and about the region, most likely to get ban because of "bigotry", "pride and prejudice". But it doesn't apply to certain posters...

I even saw a poster who has become a mod, saying something like if Sylhetis go to Dhaka to protest about the naming of surma sixers then something bad will happen. Like some sort threat he was giving. In response to another posters message about he said in humorous/sarcastic way,'go dhaka and protest'. I'm most seen those two post, don't want to name them, you will find it.

They have teams from each division. But Comilla isn't a division yet. Chittagong Division has two teams,Commilla named after city. So, yes Coxs Bazar could have a team, if there's interest and when they have a International stadium it will be tempting to have them onboard for sure.

No. If you ignore them, they have a platform to spread hate in a disguised manner. If you don't stand up, than more of those kind will be born & think it's ok to spread disguised hate. Completely wrong approach to take. Why? You see now that certain poster has been doing that for a long time, it is now seen as a 'joke', it became a norm to slyly dig/joke about a certain community, and the others think it's just mere jest. Hence, they also join in, some of them genuinely are in jest, but within those group some are real hate that are disguised but considered jest even though it's not.

Mas_UK25,

You're most welcome. Having said that, why should others be jealous of Sylheti? Are Sylheti by default any better than people from other regions? Do they enjoy a "higher caste" with God? I don't think so, my friend. Just as Sylhetis have some strong unique traits so do the other folks. I find many non-Sylhetis to be more hardworking and educated than Sylhetis in general -for example.

There are elements who like to stir things up and keep people separated by playing the tribe, race or region cards but we must not fall victims to their tricks and behave exactly in a fashion they want us to behave. I was shocked by some of the absolute rubbish written by the poster about "Dhakaiyya" students taking all the jobs in London and what not. I can only assume that poster to be very young in age or not very gifted upstairs. Perhaps, he/she is forgetting they themselves are the sons/daughters of the immigrants who themselves had to struggle and find a niche for themselves in a foreign land. How can a people begrudge others for trying to better themselves, especially, when they happened to be one's fellow countrymen? Shouldn't they go out of their way and try to help these people in a foreign land? Why people are always suspicious/afraid of the newcomers a la EDL or any bigoted parties out there? Not all "Dhakaiyyas" are bad people or out to get the Sylhetis, my friend. Don't judge them because of your interaction with some of them on the net or in real life. They are not a true representation of the vast majority.

It's not about changing someone's opinion. Rather it's to say promoting disguised hate spreads/creates more of those kind. You see people use these things to form a opinion about certain communities in real life. Internet plays a big part on how people think these days, hence if we are more careful to what we say about communities/people it may bring about more peace and unity.

These happens both ways. Like I have heard if you are Sylheti and from London, you shouldn't be walking alone in Dhaka, or visiting Dhaka.

Those comments were not made to spread hate, rather it was made to show that a problem existed. The first step to any solution is to accept that their is a problem. Secondly, I went BD in 2005, and now it is 2017, hopefully many things must have changed.

My main point which you clearly overlooked was that members stop using anti Sylheti remarks/jokes/digs etc in a disguised manner, calling it merely a 'jest' when in fact this jest is used as a disguised attack is not good. And it is not only me that see those, others here also mentioned the same, some people have become expert at having something against a community in a expertly manner.

Secondly, the Dhaka part was to show that there are some issues between these two communities. Now you coming and going after me shouldn't be a suprise? Once again this trend is too easy to spot. There are limits to what kind of joke one makes, and calling people shaitans/sinners isn't a good thing to do.

Brother Yankee, Musatafa Muffy the Buffy Hunter, Orphy, Fazil mama - shame on you all for calling/ naming a team Sylhety 'Sinners' and 'Saitan'....But Sporty bhaiyo, Yankees bhaiya may have referred to the vegan meat alternative seitan, might have been a bad spelling, that's all.

No guys, it had been fun here, this is a good thread. A gem.

On a serious note though, Arrey bhais, my late dadi (grandmother) is from Habiganj - same thing. Our Lady's man Ajfar's root is from Sylhet! Full sylhety, even our sylhoty beda bhaiyo is sylhoty! Chowdhury MoC is Sylhoty, Nadim Nadstar, Mijanur Ex-FTP Mafia Ganstar (Dealin with Cash only aka 'Revolver') is Sylhoty!

And my Sporty - my dearest SportingBD is of sylhety root. He is sensitive and he felt hurt, and it is totally fare. everyone is different. But the fact is SportingBD is very courteous and he processes a massive volume of compassion and empathy for me and others. That is very powerful.

SportingBD bhaiya, your amma's late Shahid uncle (mama) (RIP) and his sons (your amma's cousins, your mama)(RIP) are the reason we all have a website here today, called Bangla(desh)cricket.com. The ultimate 'selfless' sacrifice that those men's (your uncles) made 40 some years ago, gave a us a test cricket team today, because of your beautiful, most beloved relatives today we don't have to support Pakistan, England or India to follow international cricket - no matter where we Bangladeshis live or where we Bangladeshis were even born -as long as we have our roots in BD), We are proud to be a splash of Dark Red in the middle of the Jungle Green - Always! SportingBD, we fight here over districts, because we get bored and we are like that, we are silly like that sometimes, but the moment we/BD play against a foreign team and some troll comes from somewhere else and insults BD team, we all unite together and jump them dick's throat (I mean not literally). And someday when the planet gets invaded by the apes or coneheads, we all people of the earth - BD, foreigners, Japanese, gays, Gujratis and atheists will unite together and send the boneheads back to out of the galaxy!

Okay, again on a serious note - You are a good soul, SportingBD and you are good man of faith, God loving, humble soul. Do not worry too much about things when people in a forum jokes around. People come to BC to follow cricket, especially BD related cricket mainly, but many at the same time come here to for friendship, companionship through writing, mental/emotional support that they probably otherwise not getting at home or from their families/friends. I come here as I have no other place to go or to go hang out at. I come here and converse with you, share my pain and share my laughter with you - SportingBD. My grandfather's (dad's dad) side is from Akhaura Junction-Brahmanbaria, my father and all my uncles and paternal relatives are from there - and I constantly call my family and folks smugglers and murderers. Because they are. Next to your, mine is a district/family of demons and sometimes decent – I have both Razakaars as well as Mooktijoddhas in my family. I have Razakaars relatives that love me more than their own children, but burnt their Hindu neighbor’s homes and neighbors. I also have mooktijoddha uncles that carried me when I was in diaper before the war, who later raped and murdered their Bihari neighbor’s last living daughters and afterwards murdered them through suffocations on the bank of the river Titash. I have to go to sleep every night with these in my dreams and see my shameful/poisoned face on the mirror every morning. Next to mine, no matter what the struggles may be, I hope my dearest SportingBD, that you have a much jovial, loving and pristine family.

And your family, Sporting, I absolutely understand when people struggle with resources and job competition rises over time due to overcrowding and migrations - tensions are bound to build and resources run thin. And that definitely, understandably caused resentment amongst the long residing Londoners/Brits of Sylhety origin, and the anger/frustration were projected toward the newcomers from Bangladesh who were taking away their otherwise decently paid old jobs by accepting meager pay and compete them out. I would have felt the same if I were in their (the BD Londoners who were losing their wage/jobs) shoes, if my family(s) were going hungry. This (the strain of resources, thus blaming another) is often seen as one of the reasons for the birth of the Balkan war in the 1990s – the Yugoslovakian civil war, between the Serbs, the Bosnians and the Croats.
But you know, SportingBD bhaiya, everyone every group has to start somewhere, from a small number, as a newcomer. Before everyone else, there was always someone else who was there first, and everyone has to, and had to start from zero and as a newcomer – like the great Vivian Richards once said, “Man, when you go to the crease for the first time, the score is always zero.”

SportingBD, please brother, don’t be hurt by Yankee, idumb, Fazal or Mufi. They all mean well deep inside, they are just joking around. Please don’t be hurt by their mere tease comements about the beautiful land of Sylhet and it’s good people. Without Sylhet, we Bangladesh will be in huge trouble, without it’s endless blessing from our Lord, Allah, we/BD will have a lot less resources. And I know this - any sylhety will hesitate to take his/her meal if she or he sees a neighbor going hungry, no matter which /race they represent (even if that hungry person’s grandma wasn’t from Sylhet or Hobiganj – I was born in Dhanmondi, so what, next month if you see your BK going hungry in East London, won't you take me in and feed me? I know Sporting, you will.

But Sporty bhaiyo, Yankees bhaiya may have referred to the vegan meat alternative seitan, might have been a bad spelling, that's all.

No bhai, I really did mean Shaitan, I assure you it wasn't misspelled. Because you see, sinner and saitan are not offensive words...unless ofcourse you are looking to get offended.

How many times have we told our friends and family "tui ekta harami" without thinking twice about what that means. Words are fluid, like water. And like water, they take on whatever shape and volume the speaker intends to convey. And conversely, it takes on whatever vessel the listener uses to absorb those words.

As far as Sylhet Saitan/Sinners is concerned, it was suggested more for its alliteration, not as a joke or banter. Hence, Dhaka Daicot, Barisal Bolod, etc.

Because you see, I never even considered that Sylhetis are different from other Bangladeshis...until today. The irony is that from this day on, I will always think of Sylhetis as overly sensitive. So thank you Sylheti bhaiyos, way to "represent" your region :facepalm:

The problem here in UK is different.

Growing up, you hardly find any Dhakaiya people in London, so hard to know how they are as humans.

Most of us usually get an idea from online platforms etc. Hence when we see Dhakaiya people keep on joking and having sarcastic digs about us, we assume they have some hate problems. We often don't have direct experience with them. I have never meet any people from Dhaka while at secondary, college and university.

Also, our thought process is dictated with what the general talk etc is about the dhakaiya people in the community, like the example I mentioned before, where overall majority were complaining about income dilution.

Also just to add. To my previous post. The other post who trolls Sylhetis has many highup friends here hence he won't get warning/ban.Just like it happens in the Desh.
But if I or someone else did this to some of them and about the region, most likely to get ban because of "bigotry", "pride and prejudice". But it doesn't apply to certain posters...

I even saw a poster who has become a mod, saying something like if Sylhetis go to Dhaka to protest about the naming of surma sixers then something bad will happen. Like some sort threat he was giving. In response to another posters message about he said in humorous/sarcastic way,'go dhaka and protest'. I'm most seen those two post, don't want to name them, you will find it.

wtf man did you even read my reply to BP?...I started with dhaka amnitei jonosonkhar chape ses, akhon jodi syleti ra dhaka move kore protest korte taile dhaka ses..dont make up stories like you want it to be like

Ruling is in the blood of sylhetis.

I mean Dhaka has given what? Hasina? Khaleda? Too much corruption.

There are many educated and highly qualified professionals in Dhaka.
It's time those talented individuals get a chance to lead our nation.
