    • 2016 February 19, "How to Kill a Language", The Daily Star:
      Ethnologue, the web-based publication, estimates that there are around 41 languages in Bangladesh and all of them are living. However, 8 of them are in danger of extinction. These include Khiang, Murong, Bawm, Pangkhua among others. It is ironic to think that a nation that fought for the right to speak a language, the first recorded instance of this in history, is the same nation that internally follows an agenda of Bengali supremacy.
