I never wanted to get into this stertorous borborygnum of some challenged brains. These creatures have no knowledge of any thing and declaim stuff from their fundaments.
Rabindranath Tagore [who I have strong criticisms against] wrote a wonderful piece called "Mussalmanir Golpo" that no Muslim dared to at that time. There are other anecdotes where his attitude was known, especially the encounter with Lallan Sain.

Dear sir,Please consider one single factor name me one single characters in his literary works except Kabuli which is a Muslim?The other information you gave about National Anthem of Pakistan isWrong. About our national anthem, yes it was written by Tagore when Bengal was divided by British Raj and all the upper class ( mostly Hindu community ) who opposed the partition and demanded that under no circumstance would they allow partition of Bengal .As to Indian national Anthem, yes sir, this is also written by him. But theQuestion is when he wrote this and for whom? Please consult historyThen you will know that he wrote this to receive the then King of England when he visited India as our Lord and also King .I have only one suggestion for us ,please start looking at ourselves,Try to promote our talented writes then in no time we will start loving and respecting ourselves and our culture.

Ravindranath Tagore or his works does not represent the generalPeople of Bangladesh. He and his works represent culturally the upper privileged class which exploited the poor peasants of Bangladesh.Therefore stop promoting such ideas which only help those who are gathering momentum to destroy any or whateverBangladeshi Muslim culture is left.Also please don't forget the speech Tagore delivered in 1921 opposing the establishment of Dhaka University himself presiding over a public meeting in Gorermat Calcutta.
