After India’s 1947 partition, Hindus were still almost a third of East Pakistan’s population; when East Pakistan became Bangladesh in 1971, they were less than a fifth; 30 years later only nine percent; and today fewer than eight percent. Bangladesh's Hindus face a constant onslaught of government tolerated murder, rape, abduction, forced conversion, land grabs, and more, including a 2009 pogrom that took place right behind a Dhaka police station. Yet, the world has remained silent—until now. A Quiet Case of Ethnic Cleansing: The Murder of Bangladesh’s Hindus rips the cover off this atrocity with testimony by Hindus in Bangladesh and India; the author's confrontations with their victimizers; extensive research documenting a deliberate effort by the “moderate Muslim nation” of Bangladesh to kill, kick out, or convert its Hindus aided by the complicity of those international entities that should be defending them. It is a call to action with practical solutions to end this quiet case of ethnic cleansing.

Compared to the many books and news articles on the persecution of Muslims and on Islamophobia around the world, there are few books discussing the persecution of Hindus in Bangladesh and other places (Pakistan, Kashmir,...). This book is very useful for anyone interested in Bangladesh, human rights and Hinduism.
Other authors and books that I can recommend on Bangladesh and human rights include Yvette Rosser, A.J. Kamra ("the Prolonged Partition and its Pogroms: Testimonies on Violence Against Hindus in East Bengal 1946-64"), Taslima Nasrin and Dastidars "Empire's Last Casualty: Indian Subcontinent's Vanishing Hindu and Other Minorities".
