 Oh really. Then how do you explain the fact that from a 46:54 ratio of=20
 Hindus:Muslims in pre-partition Bengal the ratio is now 10:90 in=20
 Bangladesh whereas the percentage of muslims in WB is steadily=20
 increasing. Besides I haven't heard of any textbooks from North-India.=20
 However, your textbooks were probably supplied from the erstwhile Soviet=20

 So you do agree that it was a collusion between two of your friends-the=20
