Recent violence in Manipur, India, has sparked concerns in neighboring Bangladesh, with a senior Awami League official drawing a connection to a potential US plot for regional destabilization.

Squadron Leader (Retd.) Sadrul Ahmed Khan, a member of the Bangladesh Awami League’s Finance and Planning Affairs Sub-Committee, views the Manipur clashes as a “wake-up call” for the sub-region. He emphasizes the potential for such violence to spill over and destabilize neighboring countries.

Khan claims a “third country,” which he identifies as the United States, is attempting to gain a foothold in South Asia by exploiting Myanmar’s Kuki-Chin province. This predominantly Christian region, according to Khan, is susceptible to US manipulation due to religious affiliation. He suggests the US is supporting Christian rebels fighting the Myanmar army, potentially linking this to the recently passed Burma Act.

The Bangladesh government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the Awami League, maintains a foreign policy of “friendship to all, malice to none” as established by the nation’s founder, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The situation highlights the complex geopolitical landscape of South Asia. While the specific details of Khan’s claims require verification, the violence in Manipur underscores the need for regional dialogue and cooperation to ensure stability and prevent external actors from exploiting existing tensions.
