Sri Lanka has given permission for the Pakistani guided missile frigate PNS Taimur, which was manufactured in China, to call at Colombo on its way to Karachi, where it will join the Pakistan Navy. The Hudong-Zhonghua shipyard in Shanghai built the battleship, which is currently making its first trip to Pakistan while participating in exercises with the navies of Malaysia and Cambodia. Between August 12 and August 15, 2022, the ship is anticipated to be in Colombo harbour.

The Sheikh Hasina government reportedly forbade the Pakistani guided missile frigate from making a port call at Chattogram port from August 7–10 after making a port call at Lumut port in Malaysia, despite Sri Lanka allowing the ship to make a port stop at Colombo.

In the first week of September, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is due to go to India, where she will join PM Modi in launching the 1320 MegaWatt Maitree Super Thermal Power Project at Rampal in the Khulna subdivision.

According to diplomatic sources, Bangladesh, a close ally of India, refused to give permission for PNS Taimur to sail because Sheikh Hasina is observing a 30-day period of mourning for the 1975 assassination of her father, Sheikh Mujib-ur-Rehman, also known as Bangabandhu, by Jamait-e-Islami-inspired radical Islamist forces under the command of Pakistan.

The Bangladeshi Prime Minister has made it obvious that her father and family were treated unfairly, and Sheikh Hasina’s administration is friendly with Narendra Modi’s.According to the Bangladeshi Prime Minister, Pakistan ordered the execution of his father and his family. While Sheikh Hasina was the prime minister in 2000 and the president of the Awami League in 2004, radical Islamic forces made assassination attempts on her.

On June 23, 2022, PNS Taimur, the second of four Type 054 A/P frigates built in China, was commissioned. PMNS Tughril, the class’s captain, was commissioned on January 24, 2022. To strategically flank India on the high seas, China is also constructing eight Yuan class -041 diesel attack submarines for Pakistan by 2028.
