The brilliant heretic Sarmila Bose on critical thinking on 1971,the numbers game and the politicisation of the conflict. Here’s the summary:
Brick Lane Circle invited Sarmila Bose to talk about her new controversial book called ‘Dead Reckoning: Memories of the 1971 Bangladesh War’, on Sunday 29 May 2011.
We believe that it is very important to have open and honest discussion, undertaken in a spirit of critical and counter critical enquiry and reconsideration, based on empirical research, scientific methodology and rules of logic.
We encourage all individuals who are being energised by the publication of the book, whether through a sense of fear or enragement or feeling relieved by its conclusions, to undertake fresh research and engage critically with Sarmila’s findings
Watch it all.
