Bangladesh Navy in Liberation War
On 10 December an accident occurred at the Rupsha river in Khulna. Two of the warships of the Mukti Bahini named "Padma" and "Palash" mistakenly came under fire from the Indian Air Force as it crossed the river Rupsha near the Khulna shipyards. on this day. Earlier that day, Indian Air Force fired at different places of Khunla city. Incidentally one of those bombs had fallen at the warship "Palash". Ruhul Amin was working as an artificer of that ship. After the heavy bombing, the engine room got burned and Ruhul Amin was forced to dive into the water. When he reached the river shore, he got caught by the Razakars who killed him using their bayonets.

Our Coast Guard is almost unheard of among the other security forces. Never was any decision taken to modernize them, no ships, no training, no new weapons...or may be even in terms of salaries and benefits.
Though insignificant, but they are part of our security forces and some immediate steps should be taken to turn CG in to a potent force.
CG is usually for large countries like the USA. Or a country that doesn't have a navy. A small country like Bangladesh doesn't need CG since it has navy. I didn't understand the reasoning behind creating the force
CG is a more powerful organisation that the River Police.
It ensure the sanctity of the Economic Zone which the River Police cannot since they are not equipped to do so.
Bangladesh's requirement of CG is valid.
The Navy requires to be free from CG policing responsibility and concentrate on strategic issues.
