Why is it that you think people who vote for Modi are stupid enough to be duped?
Maybe the people of Bangladesh should be more worried about being duped by Saudi wahabism and losing their Bengali identity.
Why are we forgetting who instigated Direct Action Day and ethnic cleansing of Hindus and Buddhist Chakmas are going on for years in Bangladesh. Bangladesh took help of India for independence from Pakistan, but in reality its not much different from Pakistan.

Right, Burmese army put India- supplied arms and weaponry to non-violent, agricultural use.
Is your opinion that Rohingya Muslims have done no wrong in Burma? That they are like innocent birds? That the only thing that Burmese Military should have done to them is serve Biryani?

Today's there is an article by ex-Ambassador of India to Pakistan on the situation on border. It covers the larger picture and Rohingya issue as well.

New security challenges in North-East

Among other things, main points are:

  • Focuses on larger issue of terrorism faced by India / Burma.
  • Bangladesh's Khalida Zia was permitting operations of terrorist organizations in the country
  • Terrorism will be used by radical Islamic groups and Pakistan to destabilize Sheikh Hasina Govt in Bangladesh
  • China is the only beneficiary in the whole game as it is a closed authoritarian country.

With about a million or so Rohingyas refugees, Bangladesh is facing huge problem. But it is also party for creating the problem for itself. It allowed ARSA (Rohingyas) as well as other terror setups to set up & operate camps in Bangladesh .

I could be wrong, but I'm kind of inclined to see this as kind of a cliche Indian narrative for Pakistan. Like, Pakistan the incurable & irrepressible India hater kind of thing.
Ironic isnt it. Modi has built an image of himself as a strongman who takes decisive action. A month or so before the election he suddenly orders the launch of airstrikes. Things dont go as planned as Indian plane and helicopter go down, but him and his media machine (Indian journalists say they intimidated, ostracized if they criticize Modi and the BJP - Reuters, Indian TV channels have become 'graphic war rooms' | DW | 01.03.2019 ) manages to swing around the event as some kind of "success". The guillible masses fall for it and cant stop swooning about how tough Modi is and how scared Pakistan is now.

Do you realize that you are actively justifying a bona fide case of ethnic cleansing just because of your petty nationalism?

Persecution of Rohingyas is a concern for India as well. You are also ignoring that India (you may call it Indian nationalists) generally have a pro-Bangladesh stance. So I fail to understand your statement which sounds more like an accusations.

Try to see both sides of the coin. Or else no point in further discussion.

Petty nationalism as in your attempt to justify Rohingya ethnic cleansing just because India supported (materially and diplomatically) the Burmese junta in their murder and eviction campaign.
