Is it very difficult to figure out?

Please go through the posts/replies for a second time and you can very easily figure it out yourself.

Just a clue: look at the Thread-topic and then look at the issues that were being discussed (plus the manner also) in the later part of the thread !

Is it remotely possible that the post was closed for India bashing?

Would you guys close a post on Paki Bashing :duh:

prasad -lets not start it agians please.

d.tabligh -Nationality-bashing will always be completely discouraged... no matter which nation you ar talking about. It's ok to criticize an act... but not dragging a group or nation into it and start badmouthing in general. If we ourselves take every first chance to strongly brag about other nations... then how can we oppose people from other nations writing bad about us? Don't you think that makes us as much guilty as them in that way?

The idea is simple -prove your supiriority by being ciivil even when you are protesting something uncivil. Thanks.

If such a thread were to arise I hope the mods would close it. But I haven't seen any such thread yet.

because, the fundamentalists/Hindu-haters/communal-minded were taking over the protest. Islamists don't represent the average Bangladeshis and we should not let Islamists represent us.

As myself:
Strong sentiments these, and sweeping generalizations too. Perhaps the simple reasons such a thread has not been started are:

1) We encounter articles/stories by Indian news outlets more often than not.
2) We have more visitors here of Indian origin than of Paki origin.

1 is a function of Indian market size and its hegemony on the pop culture in the subcontinent.

2 is merely kaktalio

As mod:

There has been a few occasions where I have edited sweeping generalizations of Pakistans as well. As another mod said, it's civility that matters.

Nope.

Islamists have as much rights here as secularists.

It is when difference in opinion leads to uncivil discourse and, as Razab said, sweeping generalizations, that it is time to put an end.

Additionally, we don't want BC to be a forum for outsiders to spout their own bigoted view about Bangladesh. They can go elsehere with their bile.

Just read that thread......The original article is quite childish and in bad taste......and so are some of the responses(some ) ....... some people just need any excuse to have some good old India bashing....isn't it....?

Infact most Indians are as happy about the win as bangladeshis......afterall what feels better than aussies getting beaten.?.....hmmmm.........well maybe Pakistan getting beaten......:P

The guy(the writer) has no talent and can only get this kind of attention by writing something distasteful and controversial like this........and he has a captive readership now........isn't it??
