Pakistan’s name removed from the border pillars on the order of Bangladeshi Prime Minister. This was informed by the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB). BGB informed that all Bangladeshi border pillars have been renamed ‘BANGLADESH/BD instead of ‘PAKISTAN/PAK’. This was done after Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s order.
After the India and Pakistan partition in 1947 more 8,000 pillars were installed in which ‘IND-PAK/INDIA-PAKISTAN’ label was engraved.
