Bangladesh was the brain child of india long before the bengalis even came up with the idea of independence, funded with extensive amounts of money a known fact to the pakistani military intelligence at the time. The idea or thought that the west pakistanis were racist or over looked bengalis was absolutely absurd, a little racist problems exist in every society take pakistan today, the pujabis will mock the pathans, the balochis the sindhis and vice versa, yet when somebody looks at pakistan these very people will unite and kick as..
I don,t disagree with you about the engineers story, but these sorts of problems are prevalent in every society.
Also I believe the numbers quoted on how many perished is absolutely rubbish.
One Tabloid had it at 3 million.
Imagine that, Hitler killed 6 million jews, gypsies, slavs and other races, this required many years, a large setup (gas chambers etc) while fighting the allies and also with the entire world knowing. Pakistan is claimed to have done it over 12 months. Rubbish!
All we ever here is statements from people who were their but no concrete proof of mass graves etc.
During 71, mukhti fighters were surrounding villages that had no form of communication access to the outside world and were raping and murdering bengali women and torching entire villages dressed in military gear. A tactic they learnt from the vietnamese who worked with the yanks and blamed it on the vietcong. Many people who identified mukhti fighters as the perpertrators were called traitors and shut up. Mukhti were also known to be active in universities and would encourage their members to dress in militaria and assault students, teachers and other people. Mukhti were also able to side with the police due to large bribes.
Another thing why do your politicians bring up 71 when they cannot meet the promises they made prior to election.
