The ideological function of the postcolonial ‘national’, ‘liberal’, and ‘developmental’ state inflicts various forms of marginalization on minorities, but simultaneously justifies oppresion in the name of national unity, equality and non-discrimination, and economic development. International law plays a central role in the ideological making of the postcolonial state. Analyzing geneses of ethno-nationalism in postcolonial states, Prof. Mohammad Shahabuddin substantiates these arguments with case studies on the Rohingya and the hill people of the Chittagong Hill Tracts.
