Genocide of Bangladesh

Genocide of Bangladesh

Deliberate tactical annihilation of religious, national, racist and tribal groups is called genocide. The ruling class alone kills thousands of people at will to establish its own will and domination. Genocide was carried out in every corner of the world at the behest of a hated ruthless man to acquire diverse resources and lands in ancient and modern society. Throughout the ages, these notorious people have gone down in history, but the history of their barbaric genocide remains. Here is a brief history of the ten most barbaric genocides in the world:

Genocide of Bangladeshi and East Pakistani citizens:

The genocide in Bangladesh in 1971 was carried out in a pre-planned manner from March 1971 under Operation Search Light. The West Pakistani army was involved in this heinous act to eradicate the then East Pakistan independence movement forever. In the long nine-month war of independence of Bangladesh, the Pakistani army and its allies killed an estimated three million people. It also tortures and rapes millions of Bengali women. And this genocide is recognized as one of the most heinous genocides in the world.


The Stalin Era of Soviet Russia:

Joseph Stalin has been called the infamous genocidal murderer of the twentieth century. That list includes Hitler and Mao Zedong. He committed this crime through his established extermination camp from prison to prison. Stalin is estimated to have killed an estimated 2 million people during his reign. And out of these 2 million people, 2 million are Ukrainian farmers. He also exiled and killed Russian military officers and intellectuals. In 1936, by the 00447 Ordinance, innumerable people were killed with the title of socially harmful.

Al-Anfal genocide:

The Al-Anfal campaign is known as the Kurdish Genocide or Operation Anfal. Towards the end of the Iran-Iraq war, the operation was led by Ali Ahsan al-Majid in the Kurdish-dominated north of Iraq. The Ba'athist government of Saddam Hussein, the then ruler of Iraq, carried out one campaign after another against the Kurds. The genocide lasted from 1989 to 1989. The campaign was also carried out on other minorities. Ali Ahsan al-Majid was also known as Chemical Ali because of his use of chemical weapons against the Kurdish community. Their massacre killed 50,000 to 100,000 people. Through this genocide, 90 percent of them met millions.

Irish Potato Famine:

When the British could not wipe out the Irish directly, their main crop, potato, was infected by a fungus. And that led to the Irish potato famine. For hundreds of years, British and Irish Catholics have been at loggerheads. Ireland was fertile land. They have been exporting their food and grains to England for many years. Suddenly, when there was an outbreak of tuberculosis in the Irish crops, England closed their ports to the Irish, which further threatened the Irish. The Irish then enacted laws to maintain their grain. But at that time from 1848 to 1852 about a thousand people died of starvation and disease. And at the right time, these Irish peasants started a lot of oppression because they could not pay rent to the rich British landowners. Unable to bear the torture, millions of people died and countless others were forced to flee the country.

Moriori Genocide:

About 1,000 Polynesian farmers settled in New Zealand. And these are the ancestors of Mওori and Mওori. At one time a part of them separated and settled in the Chatham Islands. There they started their own society whose goal was to live in peace. And they called themselves Moriori. As the Chatham Islands became unsuitable for agricultural work, they began to hunt for their livelihood as in the early days.

Once upon a time, their fellow Mori found out that there were some peace-loving people living here who did not know how to carry weapons. Then, in November 1835, they attacked the Chatham Islands, a large M মাori group of 500 men, with guns and other weapons. Another 400 Mওori arrive in December. They proudly declared the Mariori homeland as their territory. And Moriori is their slave, who begins to brutally kill those who refuse to be slaves. Which is known as one of the most genocidal genocides in history.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki massacres:

August 8 and 9, 1945 were two sad days in the history of the world. Because on this day the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan were completely destroyed. In the twentieth century it was a skyscraper. ৬ On August 8, the Little Boy atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. No one escaped the bomb that day; Trains, cars, even birds and wings could not match in the black sky of that day.


And about 2 lakh people died due to the injury of this little boy. Hadishai was not found for many. Exactly two days after the 1st bombing, on August 9, a 20-kilowatt bomb, the "Fatman", was dropped on a shipyard in Nagasaki. About 70,000 people died that day as a result of the bombing. And the history of this heinous atomic bombing remains in history.

Rwanda Genocide:

The genocide that took place in Rwanda had no political hand. Rather, this brutal genocide is the result of their growing tribal divisions. About 5 lakh to 10 lakh people have to die due to this genocide. The Tusi community suppressed another tribe, the Hutu community, for centuries simply by abusing their power.

In 1982, the Hutu community revolted against the ruling Tushi community. Their intense tension and rebellion at one stage turned into war. And at that time the Hutu community started killing the Tushi community. The exact number of people killed in this massacre has not been ascertained.

Armenian Genocide:

During the Ottoman rule in Turkey, the biggest massacre of the twentieth century took place under the leadership of the then army officer Anwar Pasha. During and after World War I, Turkey not only directly killed and deported more than 1.6 million Armenians and non-Turks, but also forced thousands of Armenians and non-Turks to starve to death. Naturally, modern Turks do not recognize it as genocide. Rather, they said, it was just a mass exodus for all those who were associated with Russia.


The Holocaust:

This genocide is known as one of the genocides in the world. The history of this genocide has been written with the utmost care. About 11 million people died in the wake of Hitler's unwelcome declaration of Jews on the European continent by Nazi forces. And half of whom were Jews. This number is from the time when Hitler shot himself in his bunker in Berlin. This genocide was carried out in various ways. Direct killings, starvation killings, extra burdens, concentration camps. This heinous assassination of Hitler is known as the most brutal genocide in the history of the world.


Bosnian genocide:

In April 1992, the government of the Bosnian-Herzegovina Republic of Yugoslavia declared their independence from Yugoslavia. In the years following the declaration of independence, Serb forces, with the help of the Yugoslav Serb-dominated army, carried out barbaric massacres targeting Bosnian Bosnian Muslims and Croatians.


As a result, 1 lakh people were killed till 1995. Eighty percent of them were Bosnian Muslims. The heinous Serbs not only killed but also physically abused many children and women. And what is known in history as the Bosnian genocide.
