TWO NATION THEORY AND THE NATIONAL ANTHEM
I am surprised to find that some Bangladeshi communal minds have again raised the ridiculous issue that Bangladesh needs to change the national anthem, because Rabindranath Tagore, the writer is an Indian and a Hindu. Diganta also reveals:
Some Indian Bengali came up with "suggestion" that Indian Bengalis and Bangladeshi Bengalis are carrying two different cultures. As Tagore was a poet of the former culture - his poem does not "suite" as National Anthem of Bangladesh. He has got a reply from a Bangladeshi patriot that people of Bangladesh are the proud of Bengali inheritance and they think Tagore belongs to their culture. There are some communal Mullahs who think otherwise, but they are limited in number. Another person responded in a similar tune.It seems the two nation theory is still driving some people's minds.
Here is an article which depicts how befitting the national anthem for Bangladesh is.
