Op-ed: Arabization and Islamization

FYI and wider sharing.

Did Arabization lead to Islamization or the other way around? Why object to Hijab when westernization and Indianization are ok? Why object to "Zindabad" but want to keep "Khoda" in Khoda Haphez, both being of Persian origin?

Recent terrorist attacks in Bangladesh and their links to Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (IS) led by Arab Muslims have enraged many against the phenomenon of Arabization-Islamization, namely, increasing subversion of Bangali Muslim way of life by Arab culture and extremist Islamic ideologies. The allegation is that Arabization-Islamization cultivated the toxic environment of religious militancy in Bangladesh. This commentary evaluates the phenomenon in a comprehensive and coherent manner.
