A Quiet Case of Ethnic Cleansing: The Murder of Bangladesh's Hindus
My book about the ethnic cleansing of Bangladesh's Hindus, A Quiet Case of Ethnic Cleansing, is scheduled to be published in January 2012. The publisher is Akshaya Prakasahan of New Delhi, India. The book is expected to strike a major blow against the silence that has kept one of our age's worst human rights abuses off the international radar.
Using my own extensive experience on the ground, as well as the extensive research of a social scientist (which is my education and training), I make a compelling case in the book for why this terrible atrocity is happening, what are its roots, and how as terrible as it is, it is only a precursor to what will happen to the rest of us if we allow this thing to proceed with impunity and even our tacit approval.
Several prominent individuals and groups are eagerly anticipating the book's publication, which we hope will lead to more actions that place the ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Bangladesh on the international human rights agenda. We also will making the book available in the United States and worldwide as well.
