On Board Air India One: India believes it
will be a "dangerous mistake" to look at Bangladesh through
the prism of Pakistan when it comes to viewing the problem of
radical Islamic elements.
"Bangladesh has political parties with deep grassroots, a
very strong civil society and a strong national identity,"
highly-placed sources told journalists accompanying Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh on his official visit to Dhaka on Tuesday.
"Since we are used to dealing with Pakistan, we assume
that it is similar in Bangladesh. It is a dangerous mistake to
do that," they said.
