Remembering Fall of Dhaka

December 16, 2022 03:01 AM


Fifty-one 51 years have passed since the Fall of Dhaka happened. The patriots have not forgotten. The ruling and self-interested classes have not learned the lesson. 

December 16, 1971, is a dark chapter in the history of Pakistan. Innocent people were killed mercilessly by a RAW-trained squad that stooped down to the worst kind of brutality.

In fact, such situations were created by the Indian, Israeli and American nexus. India was desperate to avenge the defeat of the Pakistan Army in the 1965 Indo-Pak War. It was looking for an opportunity when there would be chaos in Pakistan and it would cash in on it.

India was looking for an opportunity when there would be chaos in Pakistan and he would take advantage of Pakistan's internal disturbances.

In the 1970 general elections, Awami League leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman won 161 seats in East Pakistan, while Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s Pakistan People's Party won 81 seats in West Pakistan.

Hakim Ali Zardari was elected as a member of the National Assembly from Sindh and joined the PPP. Thus, the PPP got a total of 82 seats in West Pakistan.

In 1970, elections were held for the first time after everyone got the right to vote. 

In West Pakistan, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto's popularity was on the rise, but Sheikh Mujibur Rahman became popular in East Pakistan because of giving provocative speeches against West Pakistan, bureaucracy and politicians

Bhutto and Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had a formal contract and congratulated each other on their success, but a new newspaper’s super-lead story titled "Idhar Hum Idhar Tum" created a situation that was dubbed as the beginning of the country split. 

India launched the Mukti Bahini trained by Indian RAW in East Pakistan. 

A sense of deprivation was already created among the Bengalis. Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had become a tool of the Indian intelligence agency since his student days. 

Bengali teachers were sowing seeds of hatred against West Pakistan among the youth in East Pakistan that too paved the way for Indian plots and the vested interest of elites.

There is a dire need to shun mutual differences and launched concerted efforts to cope with the challenges and avert a situation like the Fall of Dhaka
