Abstract:

This is a story of six decades, three countries and statelessness. A story about the Urdu-speaking community of Bangladesh. The terms 'Urdu-speakers, ' 'Non-Bengalees' and 'Biharis' are used interchangeably to refer to Muslim people who originally emigrated from India to the newly created East Pakistan in 1947 and afterwards. Many of them, but by no means all, originated from the state of Bihar and were fleeing large scale communal massacres. Three decades later, during the struggle for independence of Bangladesh in 1971, this community became embroiled in conflict. Branded as collaborators against Bangladesh independence, this moment became a defining one for the Urdu-speakers and has had a devastating legacy. This story is about the 160,000 people from this community who live isolated in 116 camps or settlements in Bangladesh now.
