​What Sheikh Hasina means for India

Thursday - January 10, 2019 9:35 am , Category : WTN SPECIAL

WTN- Shiekh Hasina’s coming to power in neighbouring Bangladesh is good news for India. Not only she is the sole leader in the present scenario who is friendly with India at a personal level, but also she happens to be the face of moderation and liberality in the region torn by bigotry and violence.

Sheikh Hasina has been instrumental in launching a crackdown against ISIS-baked Islamist terror groups in her country during her previous tenure, which has been a blessing for India. Ethnic militancy in the North East has reduced drastically as an aftermath of the crackdowns.

Several violent outfits have come to the table for talks with India after their support ended in Bangladesh. This is a bold and progressive step taken by Hasina to foster peace in the region. Hasina also obliges India on several other points of common interest like enhanced communication, water sharing, trade, and strategic and cultural ties etc.

No other leader in India’s neighbour be it China or Pakistan, Nepal or Burma is as pro-active in respecting and upholding India’s interests as Sheikh Hasina. She and her family share cultural affinity with India from her father’s time in the 60s and 70s. India is already hard pressed mobilising resources in the western frontiers to quell cross-border insurgency in Kashmir.

Tackling insurgency on the eastern front as well would have been a big drain on her resources as the country would stand vulnerable from both sides, in turn needing continued vigilance and deterrence measures. It is Bangladesh’s cooperation that is saving India the effort of putting in extra energy and attention in the North East. Hasina’s personal equation with PM Modi is genial to say the least and this will have a role to play in thawing occasions of tension easily, or in other words, it will be always easy to mutually navigate the areas of dissention appropriately, with minimum chances of escalation of possible skirmishes should they arise at any point. India must latch on to this golden opportunity and establish a strong bond with the Bangladeshi leadership to ensure a successful development roadmap.

Hasina has done exceedingly well in improving the human development index in the country, setting examples in social engineering and micro management of scarce resources and finances. This shows her honesty of purpose and clarity of vision, which is very much essential for good governance globally. If a leader is conscious of her people’s immediate needs and concerns, he/she can never allow terrorism to flourish in his/her land.

All the effort of such leader will be to remove the bottlenecks and roadblocks that impede development. India thus can play a very good supportive role in handholding Bangladesh through technology and logistics in achieving its goals. This will be win-win for both the countries and their people as more cultural and business interactions will mean greater understanding of each other’s values and needs and a richer outcome as a result of such productive interaction.
