Many politicians now in power in Dhaka had opposed independence, and some even plaintively note that had they not declared independence, they would have been a nuclear weapons State now.
Many Indian observers have slammed then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi for not having negotiated a settlement on Kashmir in return for the 93,000 Pakistani POWs captured after the war.
Indian concerns now include illegal migration, support for rebels in the northeast, increasing Bangladeshi links with Pakistan's ISI and terrorist acts in India, regular border skirmishes, and the general anti-India mood in Bangladesh.
In retrospect, was India right in helping create Bangladesh? Tell us"""""""

hypothesis huh - what if Pakistan did not break and Sheikh Mujib became Pakistan's Prime Minister? that would be India's right thing would not it be
? and also terrorist harboring is the work of bhodadeb ( murkho montri of west bengal ), not ours, and luckily bjp is not currently the head of India otherwise they would have supported a lot more terrorists, it is proven that the jan and mal of the terrorists came from India, though they might not be state sponsored, they must be tackled and bhodadeb must be kicked out of chair ( it is of course west bengal people's decision ) otherwise there would be growing tension between the countries, they should have handed in terrorists and god fathers of all party as a sign of good will, but no they won't and they are going to waste time on hypothesis .....
