  • No merge. It's a Bengali martial art, with scopes way beyond the generic lathi article. On second thought, changing position, and stating fresh. Aditya(talkcontribs) 04:44, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

Lathi and Lathi Khela discusses the same martial art. Therefore marge. And, since all the martial art articles are known by the art, and not the tool/weapon, therefore call it Lathi khela (following WP:TITLEFORMAT). Aditya(talkcontribs)

I agree. The differentiation here is clearly for nationalistic purposes, just a way of promoting lathi khela as a uniquely Bangladeshi martial art. Morinae (talk) 11:03, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
