Bangladesh's current PM Sheikh Hasina staged two fake elections in 2014 and in 2018, forcefully disappeared almost 600 people, and took over Judiciary, election commission, anticorruption commission, police, and army by planting either stooges or political activists from her own party.
A majority of people think that this is India's fault.
Because Indian late President Pranab Mukherjee installed Bangladesh’s PM Sheikh Hasina in 2007.
The text below is quoted from the seventh chapter of the book titled The Coalition Years (2017) written by former President of India Pranab Mukherjee —
India and Bangladesh are not just neighbours, but are bound by an umbilical connection of ethnicity and kinship. India always attaches highest importance to bilateral relations with Bangladesh because of our shared history, heritage, culture, language, physical proximity and also the role which the two nations can play together for the development and prosperity of the entire subcontinent and beyond. The bedrock on which the edifice of this unique relationship stands is the unwavering faith of both the countries in democratic values, principles of liberalism, egalitarianism, secularism, and respect for each other’s sovereignty and integrity.
Bangladesh has faced many ups and downs in its short history as a nation state. In late 2006, violent protests broke out in the country when Prime Minister Khaleda Zia’s term was coming to an end and a decision needed to be taken on a caretaker administration till the next elections. As a result, President Iajuddin Ahmed assumed the caretaker role till the elections, which were announced for January 2007. However, just before the elections (in January 2007), President Ahmed declared a state of Emergency and installed a caretaker government headed by Bangladesh Chief Adviser, Dr Fakhruddin Ahmed.
During this period all prominent political leaders were imprisoned. Sheikh Hasina too was jailed on charges of bribery and corruption.107 While India continued to engage with the caretaker government we stressed the need for full restoration of democracy through peaceful, credible, free and fair elections.
Dr Fakhruddin Ahmed visited India to attend the 14th SAARC Summit in New Delhi. Subsequently, I visited Bangladesh on 1 December 2007 in the aftermath of the severe cyclone which had struck Bangladesh in November that year. I expressed India’s solidarity with the people and the Government of Bangladesh and reiterated our readiness to assist in the relief as well as rehabilitation work in the cyclone affected areas. I said:
"On hearing of the calamity, India has already rushed some immediately required relief assistance like medicines, ready-to-eat meals, blankets, tents and portable water purifiers worth about Taka 11 crore. In response to Bangladesh Government’s request, India has also announced a waiver of ban on exports of rice to Bangladesh for 50,000 tons. In addition, 20,000 tons of rice is being sent by sea to Chittagong. In fact, India’s total relief assistance to Bangladesh this year so far amounts to more than Taka 270 crore."108
In February 2008, Bangladesh Army Chief Moeen Ahmed came to India on a six-day visit. He called on me too. During the informal interaction, I impressed upon him the importance of releasing political prisoners. He was apprehensive about his dismissal by Sheikh Hasina after her release. But I took personal responsibility and assured the General of his survival after Hasina’s return to power. I also sought an appointment with the US President George W. Bush to request his intervention in the matter and ensure the release of both Khaleda Zia and Sheikh Hasina. With my intervention through the then National Security Advisor M.K. Narayanan, I ensured the release of all political prisoners and the nation’s return to stability. Several years later, I also facilitated General Moeen’s treatment in the US when he was suffering from cancer.
Sheikh Hasina had been a close family friend, and when I was the External Affairs Minister, India tried to help her cause by building adequate international pressure for free and fair elections after the caretaker government. In fact, when some Awami League leaders deserted her at the time she was in jail, I rebuked them for their stand and told them that to leave someone when they are down is unethical. General election was held in December 2008, and Sheikh Hasina won with a thumping majority.109
Thereafter, India and Bangladesh worked to strengthen the bilateral relationship and engagement. Sheikh Hasina visited India in January 2010. It was a landmark visit and the subsequent Joint communiqué was comprehensive, forward-looking and path-breaking. I reiterated that we were firmly committed to implementing the vision when I visited Bangladesh in August 2010 to sign the 1 billion Line of Credit Agreement —the largest given by India to any country—between EXIM Bank and Government of Bangladesh.
Politics in Bangladesh has always been extremely virulent, marking a clear departure from West Bengal’s political culture. The genesis of this phenomenon can be traced to the fact that all revolutionary leaders were recruited from middle-class Bengali Hindu families residing in East Bengal. This created a lasting impact on the people of the country. Another reason for the continued political violence in Bangladesh is the failure of military leaders to resolve basic problems like poverty and unemployment.
The USA orchestrated a military takeover in 2007 using Bangladesh Army chief Gen. Moin U. Ahmed. The USA’s aim was to install Nobel laureate Dr. Mohammad Yunus in power. However, India vehemently opposed that and installed Sheikh Hasina through a fake election.
This can be verified by an article from the Indian newspaper The Statesman:
It is also widely believed in Bangladesh that the Indian intelligence agency was involved in BRD Mutiny in 2009. The local social media was flooded with images of the mutiny where people were seen patrolling the streets wearing saffron head-gears.
Apart from that, the Adani group of India is involved in the largest energy scam in Bangladesh.
Very recently, it was revealed on social media that the Indian Army took US$ 2.2 billion worth of arms & ammunition, military and civil vehicles, and machines/tools from mills/factories in Bangladesh in 1971.
