1971 FACT AND FICTION (Views and Perceptions in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh)

PREFACE
Since the Crusades and earlier, the West has never felt comfortable with the idea of a Muslim state. Same has been the case with Hindu India and some others. One of the undiscussed problems faced by Pakistan since its birth in 1947, has much to do with this silent antagonism.
‘1971’ needs to be looked at from this perspective as well. Pakistan has had major successes and major failures. Pakistan is an experimentation in Islamic statecraft in modern times. In fact, Pakistan’s soul is bigger than its size. According to Nehru, Hindu-Muslim question in the subcontinent is “something psychological.” The growing Rashtriya Swayamsevakh Sangh mindset is not good for India, and its future. The world is gradually heading towards religious fascism. This is a fact. Any floccinaucinihilipilification of this view, would be counterproductive.

Forget BD,
Sooner or Later, It had to separate from [West] Pakistan,
Both parts had long distance. It was impossible to hold BD for long time.

Better to focus Kashmir and Rest of Pakistan.

the Punjabi establishment made a mistake by going whole hog Islamists, many lower caste Hindus (My chaste Included) supported Pakistani independence in BD. unfortunately, the poison of sectarianism and racism ultimately led to the war, and yes a confederation would have worked.
