She also said her father wanted to die in Bangladesh
In yet another Twitter thread, Ganguly revealed her father had to become a worker in his own factory, and that he wanted to die as a Bangladeshi citizen.
"I always respected that as the only child. I had all the means to get his passport changed, but i didnt. He left us on 12 feb 2014 (sic)," she wrote on Twitter.
Don't need lessons on communal harmony: Ganguly
Further, Ganguly also asked her detractors to not teach her about communal harmony.
She said her aunt married a Muslim and she shares her bloodline with Muslim brothers and sisters.
Ending her series of tweets, Ganguly said no one can really understand what it means to start your life afresh, leaving your home, carrying only the idols of your deities.
Starting life from "minus" is difficult, she said
Do u understand how to start life from minus ? Do u really understand how it feels to run away from home leaving every songle thing you have, just take your #Ma#kali or Ma #Lakshmi and run away .. #God knows where you are heading..
Separately, Bangladesh has taken offense at Shah's comments
Now, CAB may have given those seeking citizenship a ray of hope, but Shah's comments in the Parliament regarding Bangladesh didn't sit well with the neighboring country.
The country's foreign minister, AK Abdul Momen, said whoever is giving Shah information about Hindus' oppression in Bangladesh is wrong.
He suggested Shah should stay in his country for a few days to understand communal harmony.
Momen has also canceled his visit to India
"What they're saying in regard to torture on Hindus is unwarranted as well as untrue...There are a very few countries where communal harmony is as good as in Bangladesh," Momen said. Reportedly, he canceled his three-day visit to India, scheduled between December 12 and 14.
