Know your neighbor

“Shahriar Kabir: The zealous secularist”:
bq. When Zia-ur-Rehman came to power after the assassination of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the entire history of our liberation war was distorted. It was not taught properly in the schools. It was in 1995, when BNP was in power, one day I was watching a quiz programme. A young boy was asked: Against whom Bangladesh fought the liberation war in 1971? The boy replied, `India’. They are taught in schools that `Pakistan is our friend and India is our enemy.’
and how many Indian lives were lost to liberate Bangladesh ?
