    President Yahya Khan’s interview with French daily Le Figaro in October 1971 appeared with an apology from the chief editor “for the violence of the language of the president”.

    Anybody has access to this article? Seems like an interesting bit of anecdotal history there.

    we can only educate or learn lessons from our mistakes in the past when we empty our glass. with full glass we already know what we suppose to know.
    we labelled bengalis as inferior to us in every repect. how can they rule over us even though they have won an election. this was against our dignity and respect.
    i am afraid we still have this full glass syndrome in most of us in the shape of discriminatory laws against the weaker section of our society.
    so, lets keep shedding tears on our mistakes and not able to do anything about it.

    It is sad..
    That the man who was marked by Jinnah for early retirement or essentially to be kicked out of the Pakistan Army.. assumed its helm using devious and cunning and kept it for ten years.. ruining it in the process.
    That this man.. who on written testaments by his british superiors in Burma during WWII.. deserted his positions and refused to lead his men into battle.. Led the nation into suicide in 65.. showed pure racist hatred against Bengali's and other less fair races.. ..and then had the audacity to write in his book that he "would not preside over the destruction of Quaid's Pakistan"..(rather let Yahya khan do it).

    Those that truly supported Pakistan..believed in it.. were sidelined.. and people like Liaqat Ali Khan...about whom Fatima Jinnah narrates that he came to see how long the Quaid had left.. took power..
    Businessmen.. racially and financially motivated opportunists took over Pakistan right after the Quaid died..

    And the people arent all innocent either.. falling prey to such blatant lies.. believing in such leaders...led to 71.
    Where when the IN has attacked Karachi harbor.. and the fuel tanks in manora were aflame..the Naval chief who was drunk beyond limits.. remarks to his son.."WHat A lovely bonfire!!"..
    When the IA was advancing towards Dhaka..
    Gen Niazi was busy in orgies.. and did not wish to hear reports on the frontline.

    Even further back.. in 67..when Bengali intellectuals had begun to ask openly questions about the biased treatment against them.. instead of hearing them out.. they where declared traitors.

    Was not any love between the west and the east?.. could there have been?
    Had the people and not the politicians met.. things might have been different.
    But even today.. its the same all around.. in our country..
    Calls of "jaag Punjabi jaag"..."Pakistan na Khappay".. and the certificates for being a Muslim..
    There a lot to be learned from 71.. unfortunately.. the only ones that learnt anything are the Bengali's and the Indians..

    Unfortunately for both of us, the current leadership in Bangladesh is hell bent upon ruining the pillars of friendship that were built up during the Musharraf - Zia era.

    I am one of those people that whole heartedly accepts and welcomes the creation of Bangladesh, but also have a deep desire for the two nations to have an extremely close (but distinct) relationship.

    for pakistani members


    ہمراز ، یہ فسانہء آہ و فغاں نہ پوچھ
    دو دن کی زندگی کا غم ایں و آں ، نہ پوچھ
    کیا کیا حیات ارض کی ہیں تلخیاں نہ پوچھ
    کس درجہ ہولناک ہے یہ داستاں نہ پوچھ
    تفصیل سے کہوں تو فلک کانپنے لگے
    دوزخ بھی فرط شرم سے منہ ڈھانپنے لگے

    Dont post rubbish please...

    Every nation has its right to become independent and stand on its own feet...something even Pakistan did...

    Off course our freedom fighters shed their blood for a country where we can live in harmony...they are not the cause, whatsoever, of where our country stands today...we celebrate our freedom day as we have the right to do so...just like every other nations does...

    If you dont like it...dont type bs...


    Cheers!!!

    Its no reality...its your intuition...

    You are free to post what ever you want...i dont mind...

    I just did not like you questioning about our celebration of victory day...what you meant was we should have been under your rule instead...and i dont buy that...we fought to be free and we are so and thats reality...



    Cheers!!!
