This subject is featured in the Outline of Bangladesh, which is incomplete and needs further development. That page, along with the other outlines on Wikipedia, is part of Wikipedia's Outline of Knowledge, which also serves as the table of contents or site map of Wikipedia.
This statement has been repeatedly added and removed from the page: "Bangla is also the de factonational language of Bangladesh." In my opinion it does no credit to the article to include that statement, and thus undermines the dignity of the country being discussed. The statement is neither comprehensible to the reader, nor is it accurate.
It is already stated that Bangla is the official language of the country. The national language page does not provide a definition, but rather explains that the term is used in several ways. One way is as a synonym of "official language", in which case the addition is meaningless. Another is as the language of a stateless nation, which does not apply here, and to allow that possible meaning to remain undermines the dignity of Bangladesh. Another meaning is as a language that does not have official status, which is also not the case here. Furthermore, the statement that Bangla is a national language of Bangladesh implies that it is not the native language of people native to other regions, and that is simply not the case; Bangla is important to all of Bengal, and to some other regions as well, such as Assam.
I hope that someone else will remove the statement, yet again, because the person who keeps adding it has been edit-warring against me, ignoring my edit summaries. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 10:42, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
Bangla is native to the people of Bangladesh. The word de facto means "in fact, in reality, in actual existence, force, or possession, as a matter of fact" (literally "of fact")." According to the constitution where state language (language of the state/country) is Bangla, which de facto means Bangla is the national language. The nation of the language of Bangla, gave the creation of independent Bengal nation of Bangladesh.
Similarly the constitution of United Kingdom says the kingdom language is English which de facto means English is the national language of United Kingdom.
official language comes in pratice. Bangla is the de jure sole official language of the state as the constution states. Bangladesh does not recorgnize other indegineous languages as well. Neither is English recorgnized officially. But English is used in law, business and higher education alongside Bangla.
Furthermore, the statement that Bangla is a national language of Bangladesh, DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT MEAN that it is not the native language of people native to other regions, like Bengal and Assam. The statement Bangla is a national language of Bangladesh does not effect it's status in the WEst Bengal or Assam. Since West Bengal and Assam are a part of India, Bangla holdes a sate regional language status in the West Bengal and Assam, as India has no language mentioned as state language in it's constitution.
I hope it was understood by you. The page Bangla will always tell Bangla as a language native to Bangladesh, West Bengal and Assam. But the page Bangladesh would state Bangla as sole official and national language. Where as West Bengal and Assam page would as regional/state language and the page India with NO state/national language, instead 2 central official language and other regional official languages. I hope you confusion is clear, thank you. :) বব২৬/BB26t@lk 23:48, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
I've removed the offending passage. Your argument is incomprehensible (WP:COMPETENCE) and the cited source simply does not support the statement. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 16:09, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
