Default ethnic origins of cricketers...

not that its supremely important...but had this idea before and came again after reading the congrats TIK thread.

so we know the Khan daan are originall of Bihari origin.

what about Athar Ali? is he also of non-bengali origin? seems like it.

how about Javed Omar? he kind of doesn't look bengali either.

The whole current bunch is Bangali i think.

It doesn't matter - one's origin is nothing that one shouldn't be able to talk about openly. And if that person can, there's no reason why others can't.

At the end of the day, they're all Bangladeshis and most Bangladeshis are immigrants of some sort (be it 1, 2, 5 or 10 generations back).

I doubt I am pure Bengali, several people in my family have hazel blue eyes, brown hair and fair skin.



Ive never asked my Dad, but I should ask him about our heritage.

And ATMR, dont be so touchy about the subject, no one is being prejudiced e.g Biharis superior to Assamese etc etc, so just chill out.

Though I would say this thread may belong in the FC section.

Au contraire, I was hardly being touchy, more like the opposite of touchy. Check out the TIK thread that the OP refers to to see what I mean.

Tamim is Bihari. His grandparents moved to East Bengal from Bihar in India after partition I believe.

And Athar is not Bihari. He is half-Pakistani (Punjabi/Sindhi) from his mother's side and Bengali from his father.

But failed to find the real reason behind this thread.

Well Tamim's roots could be Pakistani, but I can tell you that he is 100x more patriotic than many Bengalis and same goes for Atahar. I honestly don't think they would even like discussing this. However, you should realize that like India, Bangladesh is also quite diverse. We were Indians at one pt then Pakistanis at another pt, before that we had persians and monglian influences, and the list goes on. Where do you think words like "Khoda," "Wuzu" comes from? Therefore, I dont think you can define what a Bengali should look like.

bengali nation itself a mixture of many different origins and caste. so what is the point of figuring out who was our grand grand grand father now ??

even my family origins are from Saudi Arabia...but that hardly matters now...my grand father is a bengali, my father is a bengali and so am I and proud of being that ! period !!

I for one think its important to know one's ethnicity. I am not talking about Tamim's. I am talking from a personal point of view. I would like to know where my roots come from.

I just dont understand why people are being so sensitive here..whats the big deal with you guys? Is Asaad bhai asking you guys what ethnic origins you guys are? No he's just curious of what ethnic origin each player is..he's not saying that just because tamims great grandfather came from India and hes not patriotic..I'm also very curious and I think its very interesting what ethnic origins the players are..

JO is from Nawab Bari just like I am. Have seen him and met him many times at Guddu bhai's (Former national hockey player) house at the talab kinar. Btw I'm from Nawab Bari too and a Nawab I'm told! lol ... Apparently we still have a case going on the court to get Ahasan Mazil back from the Government as it's a private property and was wrongly taken away from us!

oh thats pretty cool...do you guys speak urdu or bengali or both?

i have a few "mixed" friends. 2 brothers i know are i think 3/4 bengali and one quarter pakistani pashtun. always wondered how they spoke urdu so well, turns out his father, despite being half bengali and bangla-fluent, is more comfortable speaking in urdu with his family.

another kid, once told me even he is not sure of what he is. although he is more proficient in bangla than 90% of the "pure" bengali kids i know, he generally speaks urdu at home with his parents. his dad mom is a total urdu-walla and his dad speaks bangla without any accent at all. my friend often gets confused as his family socializes in both pakistani and Bangladeshi circles. commenting about the weather one day, he told a bengali uncle "baire khuub baarish hochche..." only to be totally not understood by the uncle, lol.

Its kinda funny actually ... My grandma couldn't really speak bangla but used to try speaking in bangla with us ... My dad whenever he talks to his siblings would speak in urdu as that is what he grew up speaking. However my mom speaks bangla and we grew up at home speaking bangla (My dad being in the Army and us travelling pretty much all over Bangladesh! lol). So we all pretty much speak bangla including my dad but when we go to Nawab bari I try out my Urdu skills with my cousins there ... and I know what ur saying! lol ... it sounds so funny at times when they try to speak bangla.

does it really matter what their ethnic origins are?

It appears this 'materialistic' topic does appeal to a lot of you and it is non cricket related so this thread should be moved to Forget cricket surely??
