If it was me, I would have kicked the turd out of these mini Bin Ladens, but I'm not in power. RAB and Police were/are deployed - but you can't provide security for a community in this manner - it simply doesn't work.
At the very least, even after the fact, the government should find/arrest/try the individuals responsible for ransacking the mandirs, and sentence them to prison under our existing laws. People should know that they can't get off scot-free for criminal activities.

The "sanitized" version suggests that this all arose from Muslims in a mosque forbidding Hindus from using drums in an annual (i.e. once-in-a-year) procession. Given that the mosques are perfectly fine with using microphones/loudspeakers to announce azaan five times a day, the sheer hypocrisy of this act completely floors me.

I don't know anymore...we take one step forward, and two backwards. It's been the story of this country.

We make Taslima Nasreen an international figure, left alone, I'm not sure even her own family would have read all her books, yet now she is someone that gets brought up every time someones wants to point out the shortcomings of this country.

Way too many self inflicted wounds

The way Bangladeshi politics work, if a police does anything to these effed up fundamentalists , the next day you will see colored posters with some bloodied picture of bearded bin laden wanna be's with the headline of how AL is a hindu/Raw/Indian agent.... Now the trend is noticable even on social forums like FB and stuff....... at the end of the day the minority suffers...

Ekhono haal chhero naa, F6. This might be very subjective, given that my more recent views are based largely on annual visits to Bangladesh -- but I remember the 70's and early 80's, and how relatively secular we were as a people then (yes, we had many other problems, but religious strife wasn't one of them), as well as the mid-80's to the mid-90's when religion started encroaching into our public sphere. However, the impression that I have been getting since the late-90's is that people (especially young people) are gradually reverting back to the notion that religion belongs in the private, and not public sphere -- a feeling probably spurred on by overreaching on the part of Jamaat and acts like the 2005 bomb incident by JMB. Yes, there will always be morons who can be egged on by vitriolic rhetoric, and probably some 500-Taka notes, to indulge in reprehensible acts against our minorities, but I don't believe they are representative of most Bangladeshis.

What is important, though, is that the administration makes it quite clear to the public and these miscreants, that such acts will not go unpunished.

HWG, I agree. But propaganda can be countered (it's not as if AL won't be labelled a Hindu/RAW/Indian agent even if they don't respond), and examples need to be set. This is not an act that these bigots can be allowed to believe that they can get away with.

If I switched to T-mobile, got a new line and kept the same number, a free phone wouldn't have been worth it. And I'd have to pay cancelation fees as well.

AT&T said I can upgrade to GS2 in 45 days!!!

When does the iPhone 5 comes out? Should I wait for that? GS2 comes with 4GLTE but iPhone 5 won't which is sad!

Sad. She had one of the more interesting R&B/Gospel voices (self-assured and confident) of our generation.

And her rendition of the American national anthem was one of the best that I've heard.

Be nice, Zeeshan. The state of affairs in Bangladesh isn't quite like that in the US. There's a strong optimistic and entrepreneurial bent among the student body. So there's no reason why Lamisa can't use her Business Administration degree to take advantage of that.
