On the other hand, though the figure of 3 million is unsubstantiated, many believe that the real number is still exceedingly high (more than 1 million) and the killing can clearly be termed a genocide. This view gets support from the aforementioned reports in international media, which were reported during the war before the 3 million figure was put forward. Supporters of this view would also point out to the enormous influx of refugees into India (8 million seems to be a widely accepted number), and reason that killings numbering as low as the Pakistanis would like to claim would not have caused such a large number of people to leave their homes. Some say that the Bangladesh claim might have had roots in a statement by Yahya Khan. According to Robert Payne in Massacre , on February 22, 1971 Yahya Khan told a group of generals, "Kill three million of them, and the rest will eat out of our hands." ...more on Wikipedia about "1971 Bangladesh massacres"
A proper dyaloge betwene a Gentilman and an Husbandman eche complaynynge to other their miserable calamite through the ambicion of the clergye was printed in two versions by " Hans Luft" (i.e., Johannes Hoochstraten) of Antwerp in 1529. This book appears in Robert Steele's list of books banned in Henry's reign; Steele refers to it as "Dialogue between gentleman & plowman." While clearly in the Piers Plowman Tradition, Piers does not appear as a character. The first version has a 684 line acrostic poem opening and dialogue that was written in the sixteenth-century invention. Following this, there is an authentic, late fourteenth-century Lollard anti-clerical text, written ca. 1375-85. (It is included in Matthew, ed. The English Works of Wyclif.) To all this, the second version adds another prose tract probably from the late fifteenth century, which argues in favor of vernacular Bible translations. ...more on Wikipedia about "A Proper Dialogue Between A Gentleman and a Husbandman"

The Northern Alliance is a term used by Al-Qaeda, Taliban and their allies to identify their enemies in Afghanistan. Afghanistan had a UN recognized government led by Burhanuddin Rabbani. When it was dislodged from the capital, Kabul, it continued leading the war against the Taliban from the northern mountains of the country. The then Afghan government adopted a political strategy to unite all warring factions that did not recognize the government under the banner of the United Islamic Front for the Salvation of Afghanistan to fight off their common enemy, the Taliban regime that had taken power in Afghanistan. They fought against the Taliban control that had expanded from Kandahar in 1994 to capture most of Afghanistan by September 2001. UIFSA was headquartered in Panjshir. Taliban and the three countries that had recognized their regime, Pakistan, UAE and the Saudi Arabia referred to the UIF as NA Northern Alliance in order to belittle it. The Western Media preferred to use NA because they did not want their people to know that the US/UK governments were siding with the Former Mujahedin who were also Moslem fundamentalists. To date the US backed government has not been able to get rid of these former Mujahedin from the government. It was the influence of these Fundamentalist Mujahedin that shaped the Afghan constitution into a modern Islamic constitution with Sharia Law as the central pillar of it. ...more on Wikipedia about "Afghan Northern Alliance"
