6.1. The Other Side:

It is admitted that there have been victims in this conflict. Some victims were totally innocent, who were caught up in the crossfire. Some of the victims died while they were actively engaged in combating Pakistan defence forces. This is one side of the story which has been magnified many folds with the sinister idea of falsifying those who tried to defend Pakistan from being dismembered.

What about the other side? The so-called liberators took innumerable human lives, inflicted physical injuries and left many of them mayhemed in their attack both on army and civilian who were loyally defending the country. Yet, in recounting this sad conflict hardly any notice was taken of these other victims: the Pakistan Army personnel and their families who were killed by their one time brothers and colleagues who together took oath to defend Pakistan; the Bihari civilians, many of whom committed no crime other than remaining loyal to Pakistan and above all the countless East Pakistani Muslims who refused to be beguiled by the Indian/Awami League's plot and either remained silent or had taken part in the struggle to save Pakistan.

It should not be forgotten that in war, a side claiming to be on the right side can not abandon the time honoured norms for waging war. Nor can they expect to be condoned simply because their opponents had violated those norms. Having noted this central code of behaviour, let me ask a simple question to those who suavely condemned the Pakistan Army for all manner of atrocities whether they would at least concede that atrocities were also committed by them on the other side. If 'abnormal Pakistan' did not care to punish its 'killers', what stopped the 'civilized' and 'morally sensitive' Bangladesh Government to punish its own offenders? Even if these 'Men That Mattered' were busy with other matters, what stopped men of 'PEACE and JUSTICE' like Abul Hasanat [1] from coming out with another tome, like his 'The Ugliest Genocide', 'Addressed to' those 'Men That Mattered’ in the 'liberated' Bangladesh? Their very silence shows, like their loathsome figure game, their protestation for civilized human values, their cry in the name of suffering humanity and their call for justice, were all fraud.

6.2. The Killing of the Biharis:

To give an idea of heart-rendering savagery which was committed against the 'Bihari' Muslims, I shall confine myself to the testimony, not of those who supported Pakistan, but of those who took part in dismembering Pakistan. Such a well-known 'Bengali nationalists', M.R.Akhtar Mukul in his ‘Ami Bijoy Dekhechi' (I Have Seen Victory) stated:

“At around sunset they came back. But, the report they gave about Shantahar is difficult to narrate in words". Since I was busy with various tasks and also because train and road communications were cut off, 1 could not obtain any information about this railway town. For three days in Shantahar medieval fiendish killings have been carried out. Now the town cannot be entered into, because of the stench from the dead bodies.” [2]

From the river crossing-point in Khetlal, the same writer reported this:

"There is a wooden bridge to help private car, jeep and pedestrians to cross the river. But its middle portion is missing. Someone has removed it. To speak to the local people I got down from the jeep along with Mr Asad. Seeing my large body, big moustache and long hair, the locals started whispering with one another suspecting me to be a non- Bengali. I sensed my heart getting cold out of fear. Luckily, I am an accomplished speaker in Bogra's local tongue. My habitual jokes and manner of speaking removed their suspicion and helped make certain rapport between us. Afterwards I came to learn that they have been engaged in a awesome mission. The non-Bengalis from Jaipurhat-Pachbibi area who have been fleeing towards Dhaka through Bogra were finished off here on the bank of the river. Women and children have been kept unharmed in a homestead. For a number of days the villagers have been doing this at night with 'mashals' in hand." [3]

These Bihari Muslims had no other fault except that they were non-Bengalis. They did not even have the chance of 'col1aborating', as alleged, with the Pakistan Army. Beside, is it a crime to stand up and fight for one's own country? If any, those so-called 'liberators' who actively and brazenly collaborated with the Indians to destroy Pakistan - a sovereign country - should be guilty, not those who tried to safeguard a well-established country as being moral duty.

The retribution that was meted out to them after Bangladesh came into being had few parallel in savagery. Many of the males became victim of a systematic program during and after the fall of Dhaka to the Indian Army. According to one source, their number killed 'is estimated in thousands' [4]

Those who survived this carnage were deprived of their hearths and homes, stripped off all their possessions and denied their jobs and sources of livelihood. The miserable plight in which they found themselves evoked this appeal from Abul Fazal, the well-known author and educationist:

" ... they are utterly helpless and dispossessed. Most of them are women and children. They have no means of livelihood, no occupations or anything to cling to. They cannot envisage a future. This is a queer and pathetic problem. Theirs is a human problem. When some of them are found in bad health, wearing tattered garments, hungry and helpless, begging alms with tearful eyes in streets and market places, this morbid scene appears to me as a great insult to humanity. Any sensitive person cannot stand such a sight." [5]

Yet, persons like Hasanat, Gupta and their associates have little time to mention any of these, far less to acknowledge that the Bihari Muslims and many other Muslims of East Pakistan too have suffered and got killed and became the subject of atrocities.

6.3. The Pakistan Supporters:

At least the plights of the Bihari Muslims have been mentioned by writers such as Mukul and had compassion from Abul Fazal. But few have spoken about the treatment meted out to the men and women who have either served Pakistan faithfully in the past or refused to join the conspiracy to destroy Pakistan.
Many of these were killed in the conflict on the spot and many more were killed cold-blooded after the conflict was over. After the fall of Dhaka countless persons were 'lynched, flogged, flayed, mutilated, cleaved and butchered'. [6] Let me mention a few.

Ajmal Ali Choudhury, a Muslim League leader and a Minister of Commerce of Pakistan at one time, who played absolutely no part during the conflict was taken out from the Dargha of Hazrat Shah Jalal in the heart of Sylhet town in broad day light and killed. Thereafter his body was mutilated and was left in an open field for public display near the Government College. For three days his family was kept away from collecting his dead body. Thus, this good patriot and decent Muslim was deprived of his entitlement of a decent burial. Dr Abdul Majid, another Muslim League leader, was similarly gunned down and his dead body was desecrated.

Earlier during the conflict, Abdul Mu'nem Khan, another Muslim League leader, and a former Health Minister of Pakistan and former Governor of East Pakistan, was gunned down at his Dhaka residence in presence of his family. Like Ajmal Ali Choudhury, Abdul Mu'nem Khan was also living in retirement and had no role either way during the conflict. Their only 'crime' appeared to have been that they worked for the creation of Pakistan, served it faithfully and did not renounce their allegiance in favour of 'Joy Bangla'

Maulvi Farid Ahmed, Vice President of Pakistan Democratic Party and a former Commerce Minister of Pakistan, was detained in Dhaka. While under detention, he was 'whipped first and then his skin was cut by sharp blades and salt was added to his wounds'. After this beastly treatment, he was put to death. His dead body was mutilated and 'desecrated in a wild fury'.

Maulana Asadullah Shirazi, a former Member of the National Assembly, writer, poet and sufi and the eldest son of the famous poet and Khilafat Leader Ismail Hussain Shirazi, was dragged through the streets of Sirajgonj, with a hook pierced through his nose. After this act of utter barbarity he was 'trailed to the place of his martyrdom'.

Prof. Tariqullah, Bengali Department of Choumuhani College, Noakhali, was arrested and then taken before a gathering where he was commanded to recant his support for Pakistan. This man of true faith told his captors that if he was not convinced that Pakistan was created mainly in the interest of the Bengali Muslims and that they still needed the Muslim State of Pakistan in their own interest, he would have joined them. Since that was his faith, he could not recant his support for Pakistan even if it meant death to him. And death he met under a hail of bullet.

Muhammad Illyas, a student leader belonging to Islami Chatra Sangha, 'was tied to a rear wheel of a slowly moving motor vehicle and was trailed to Feni from Dagan Bhuiya, ten miles away, where he was whipped by the Indian Army. Hot iron rods were used on the moribund body of helpless Illyas. His eyes were gouged out; his ears and nose were clipped. Finally, he was tortured to death and his dead body was displayed at a crossroads in Feni.'

Maulana Azharus Sobhan, a prominent alim and the principal of Mithachara Madrasa, Chittagong, was severely flogged breaking several of his bones. "Three of his students were beheaded in his presence. A garland of the heads of three students was put around his neck and he was kept standing for three consecutive days' before he was killed.

Maulana Pir Dewan Ali of Dhaka was 'shaved of his beard and flogged cruelly'. With his bones broken, he was tied by his hands and legs and 'thrown into the middle of a river' to sink alive.
Jalaluddin, a boy of 14, from Kaliganj in Dhaka district, the constituency of Tajuddin Ahmed, the Prime Minister of the Bangladesh Government in exile formed in India, was buried alive. 'He was forced to dig his own grave, to fix it with the thorns of date trees and finally he was made to lie on this thorny bed to death." [7]

6.4. A Survivor’s Account:

These are the tales of a few. It is difficult to give the precise figure of how many people met their death in this way. However, it can be said with utmost honesty that they number many thousands. Those who survived various forms of brutalities were greater in number than those killed. To give some idea about their ordeal, I shall quote the account of two persons only:

"Typical of the intolerance and vindictiveness displayed towards the intellectuals who did not vocally support the Awami League was the case of Syed Sajjad Husain, Vice Chancellor of Dhaka University. He earned the party's wrath by declaring his opposition to secession in a press statement. The "Free" Bangladesh radio operating in Calcutta sentenced him to death for his offence and three days after the fall of Dhaka, on 19th December, a band of armed guerrillas raided his private residence, beat up his protesting wife and daughters, broke into his room, and dragged him away to a Mukti Bahini camp. Here he was stripped of all his clothes, except the trousers, beaten black and blue, blindfolded, handcuffed and gagged, and left, tied to a post like an animal, to wait execution the following morning. The next day at dawn his executioners took him to a public square, stabbed him in six places and dealt him a shattering blow on the spine. When he collapsed, bleeding and unconscious, they thought he had died and moved off. He survived miraculously after being rescued by a passer-by who recognised him, but remained almost totally paralysed from the waist down for a month and a half. When after some treatment in hospital he partially regained the ability to move about on crutches, the Government had him removed to the Dhaka Central Jail. There he was detained for two years. The former Vice-Chancellor is a permanent paraplegic today with both legs affected and needs a staff to balance him.

"In the like manner Hasan Zaman, director of the Pakistan Bureau of National Integration, an outspoken defender of Pakistan's ideology, was seized from his home on the same day as Syed Sajjad Husain and left for dead in the same square, bruised, blind-folded and handcuffed, He too was subsequently detained in Jail for two years. For several months after the assault Hasan Zaman could not walk erect because of the tortures he had undergone." [8]

Some writers on Bangladesh have argued that the killings and punishments of Pakistan supporters that went on after Bangladesh came into being was an inevitable vendetta carried out by the over zealous Mukti Bahini and the Government of Bangladesh had no hand in it. Yet the case of Syed Sajjad Husain showed that it was the exiled Government of Bangladesh in India which 'sentenced him to death', announced the sentence through its radio for no other reason other than for his statement opposing secession. How then the Government of Bangladesh could be absolved of their responsibilities in these horrendous crimes?

6.5. Could Mujib be Absolved?
Lest doubt remains, let me give another instance with regard to Mujib's own ingenious argument in support of these brutal killings by his own Mukti Bahini.

"As a frenzied, shouting mob of 5,000 Bengalis screamed encouragement, young Mukti Bahini guerrillas methodically tortured four suspected Pakistani quislings. For 30 minutes, the guerrillas battered the bound bodies of the helpless prisoners with kicks and karate blows with the bayonets, Quietly and systematically, they began stabbing their victims over and over again - all the time carefully avoiding the prisoners' hearts. After more than ten minutes of stabbing, the grisly performance seemed at an end. The soldiers wiped the blood from their bayonets and begun to depart. But before they left the scene, a small boy - perhaps a relative of one of the victims - flung himself on the ground next to a prisoner's near lifeless body. In an instant the guerrillas were back, kicking the boy and beating him with their rifle butts. And as he writhed, the child was trampled to death by the surging crowd."

This horrendous bloodletting took place next to Dhaka stadium. The man who ordered the public killing and personally saw the order being carried out is Abdul Kader Siddiqui, the Mukti Bahini commander from Tangail. [9].

During her interview with Mujib, Oriana Fallaci, the Italian journalist, wanted to know what the Bangladesh leader thought of this massacre. The following conversation took place between Mujib and Fallaci:

Mujib - Massacre? What massacre?
Fallaci – The one commited by the Mukti Bahini at the Dacca stadium.
Mujib - There has never been a massacre at the Dacca stadium. You are lying.
Fallaci - Mr Prime Minister, I am not a liar. I saw the massacre with other journalists and 15,000 persons. If you'd like, I'll show you photographs. My paper has published them.
Mujib - Liar, they were not Mukti Bahini.
Fallaci - Mr Prime Minister, please do not repeat the word liar, they were Mukti Bahini and they were led by Abdul Kader Siddiqui and were in uniforms.
Mujib - Then it means that those were Razakars that had opposed resistance and Siddiqui was compelled to eliminate them.’ [10]

A substantial proportion of people of all ranks and professions had indeed opposed the conversion of East Pakistan into Bangladesh and a good many of them even took arms alongside the Pakistan defence forces. [12] Countless of these men, old and young, were eliminated in the 'liberated' Bangladesh with the connivance of Mujib and his Government.

Why did this issue come up in the first place after so many years? Pakistanis and their local collaborators are war criminals. Our history is well documented and the facts are established truth. I don’t care what is written. I am sure a sinister circle including the Pakistan army is behind the financing the disinformation cyber-campaign. Indian intelligence agencies should see if ISI agent trying to smear the joint Indo-Bangla war to liberate Bangladesh in 1971.

Those who have lived through the time or studied the genocide committed by the Pakistan army in Bangladesh are not easily susceptible to forays into genocide denial. It appears that books like this are aimed at those that are not familiar with the genocide. It is vitally important for Bangladeshis to preserve the history of our struggle for independence. To fail to do so would be a dishonor to the memory of those who died and to those survivors who were tormented by the Pakistani army and the Razakars.

What you said is only fabrication and denial of actual atrocities. Many books have busted the lie (manufactured by India). Beside logic and research, a lot of why we know the killing and rape allegations are fake is because of elders who saw that so-called genocide. You only want to discredit Pakistanis and patriotic United Pakistanis even by making up stories about your moms and sisters. If we really suffered that much, then you wouldn't have to force everyone so much into hating current-Pakistan and our former United Pakistan and force us into loving India.

If you were not lying, you would not have to try this much to make us hate current Pakistanis and former United Pakistan patriots. Besides logic and research, we know you are lying because we know from older people who saw the so-called genocide in 1971. Stop spreading hatred and stop making up stories about your moms and sisters. Stop repeating stories made by Hindus to make us forget what they did to our Muslim forefathers before our independence from Britain,

You guys are so pathetic. You have been bought out by the Indian propaganda that you are unable to see light. Can’t you see how India used you against Pakistan? and now the same thing she is doing to you: disintegration of Bangladesh.
You idiots thought Mujib was your saviour and thought promulgation of Urdu really would marginalize you eventhough during Sirajudaullah’s time official language of Bengal had been Persian and Urdu. Mujib (died a rightful death) deceived your inside out. You guys chose the Kuffars over your Muslim brothers violating the Holy Quranic injunctions against making friends with Kuffars.
You still believe in that myth of Pakistan Army raping Bengali women. Eventhough, there are numerous reports out there now which negates the well established beliefs. The declassified US reports, Indian military officers account, Pakistan military officers account, General Niazi’s memoirs, Sharmila Bose, Hamoodurahman commission report.
I first ask you what is the punishment for a defector/rebel throughout the international community? You will agree that it is pain of death. Mujiburahman started the racial divide by creating the language issue: to make Bengali the national language of Pakistan. Bengali, being only spoken in Bengal, could not have been understood in West Pakistan. Urdu, on the other hand, was understood everywhere. He then created more problems for Pakistan. He was not the one who fought for Pakistan movement. He was an opportunists working for Russia and then India. Mujib and his cohorts should have been hanged to death as soon as the revolt had started.
Pakistan Army was justified in her actions against bengali rebels. Any self-respecting country will do that. So did India too when she murdered all members of Khalistan movement. Unfortunately, Pakistan did not have loyal leaders. Their wrong decisions made everything worse.
Pakistan Military action ONLY begun when Mukti-Bahini hoards started murdering lacs of innocent West Pakistanis (specially Punjabis) and loyal Bengali and Bihari Pakistanis (who you morons hate). These Hoards of India were responsible for the rape.
Pakistan Military officers fought hard. Many foreign correspondents speak well of their bravery. It is the bravery of a Muslim soldier that Indian Military got tough fight. These Pakistani Mard-e-Momin fought so hard that they had almost regained the control of East Pakistan from the dirty hands of Mukt-Bahini. When India saw this, She then started the military action which resulted in the fall of Dhaka.
Then your Traitor Mujib showed his true colors after the formation of Bangladesh with his BAKSAL party. How he became authoritative and usurped democracy is not a secret anymore. He was going to make Bangladesh part of India that he was killed timely by the Pakistani military officers (yes those Bengalis who never gave up allegiance to Pakistan. I stand in honor for them).
And still you called this traitor Baga-bundu?? How stupid can you guys be?
Instead of taking the opportunity to understand the other side of the story (in order that some misunderstandin g can be fought and truth is revealed), you malign them as Pakistani agent.
Why? Why your small mind can not see things beyond the tunnel created for you by RAW? Can’t you guys see that Kuffars will not be happy until they subjugate Muslims? How dare you forget the mistreatment of Bengali Muslims by the Hindu majority before Partition.
For Allah(swt) sake, don’t regurgitate what Indians want you to regurgitate. Take a step back, think outside of the box and see things from Pakistani perspective. If you were in the same shoes, you will do the same. Don’t forget the recent mutiny. just think of how you wanted to protect Bangladesh integrity when recent mutiny happened, similarly Pakistan was doing the same. Listen to what these experts are saying. Don’t put blindfolds on your eyes. There is evidences everywhere. Secrets have been declassified. Eye witness accounts are available. It is time to do a serious reprisal of our faults, shortcomings and vow not to repeat it again.
Do the following ASAP:1) Watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULpCroezFrY 2) Read “RAW in Bangladesh by ZainulAbedin (an ex-Mukti Bahini member) on 1971 war. 3) Read Blood and tears by a Pakistani writer about 1971 war. 4) Check the website of Federation of American Scientist on 1971 war 5) Read “East Pakistan Tragedy” by L.F. Rushbrook Williams.

65 million of the 75 million Bengalis in Bangladesh 1971 were Muslims. These Muslims were figthing kuffars like you, the NaPaki Army and the Jamati-e-Munafiqeens. These spawns of Iblis were stopped by the inheritors of the sword of Hazrat Shah Jalal, RA. But not liquidated with the hope that these being will see the Deen of Allah, and take up the siratul mustaquim. Alas, Iblis continues to keep them on the path of jahaliya, they continue to surface their faces into the path of the muslims, faces lacking the Noor of Allah. Their return is not disheartening, for we realise that even the Khatam-un-Nabi Mohammad s.a.w faced such kuffars, so for us to face you is nothing, it continues to give us the opportunity to fight in the way of Allah and slay and be slayed. May Allah grant you hidayat before the sword of Hazrat Shah Jalal befalls you.

Don’t forget you are a Muslim FIRST. Your allegiance is to ALLAH (swt) not to any “Shah Jalal”. I haven’t even heard of his name.
It is NOT smart to REGURGITATE what you have been fed. As a nation you haven’t gained ANYTHING. You are still IMPOVERISHED and still face flood every years. You aren’t able to do ZILCH about it but you had the audacity to blame West Pakistan for your ills.
Now where is all the revenue that you claim you used to have? Now you got 100% of all of your revenues but you still are pathetically poor. You are worse than Pakistan. I see a lot of Bangladeshis working in Pakistan. You guys have so much poverty that you take lower wages in UAE and other foreign countries. Where is all the prosperity that Mujib promised you?
Think about it. Ponder over these facts. You played yourself into the hands of enemies of Islam. “They” used you as a pawn against their imperialistic objective. They not only took revenge of Islamic rule (Indira Gandhi’s said that) but also disintegrated an otherwise strong nation. You still have the same problems as you had before 1971. They only thing you have is just Bangla-language.
Go ahead eat, sleep, drink, and wear your Bangla language or better yet, sing “Vand-e-Mataram”. Your culture and language is sooo Hinduish. At least, Punjabis, Pathans, Sindhis, Baluchis switched to Arabic Script. While you guys stand proud of your Sanskirit origin knowing full well how Hindu Bengalis persecuted Muslims Bengalis before partition.
May Allah(swt) open your eyes and you stop seeing life through your Bengali-nationalistic glasses.
I STAND in HONOR for those Pakistanis who laid their lives to protect the honor and integration of Pakistan. I stand in honor to those Pakistanis who rejected Bangladeshi nationality. These LOVERS of Pakistan chose destitution over surrender.
I cry for them and pray to Allah(swt) to give them a place in Pakistan. These are our sons and daughters who Pakistan need to own. Unfortunately, the seed of racism that you bengalis have sown in Pakistan is soooo deep rooted in Pakistan, that no one is allowing these Biharis to return because they fear that it will increase the population of Muhajirs.
You guys are partially responsible for their plight on two counts: First sowing the seed of provincialism and Second, disintegrating Pakistan. Hasbunallaho Wa Naimalwakeel

To all those worshippers of Bengali Idol,
You should analyze things impartially from the bottom of your heart. In Pakistan, many have done the retrospection and many believe that Bengalis were wronged. To this day, we have blamed Pakistan Army UNTIL some brave men and women came out with the other side of the picture. Agartalah Conspiracy had exposed the designs of Mujib and India. He was arrested (just like any sovereign nation would arrest the defectors) and should have been IMMEDIATELY hanged but unfortunately, our STUPID politicians didn’t realize India’s game and this Traitor was released who did the very thing which he was arrested for. That he announced the formation of Bangladesh while still in Pakistan and as a Pakistani Citizen. I call it the BLATANT FORM of defection.
It is simply logical how can the KUFFARS be your friend. KUFFARS can be friends of each other and not to any Muslim. The benefits that they have given you superficially is just a joke. In return of that, they have taken your freedom.
Knowing very well when and why RAW was formed, knowing that they hired Moosad’s assistance to disintegrate Pakistan and knowing the DECLASSIFIED information, I REJECT the myth of Pakistan Army’s rape. I am 100% convinced it is based on propaganda, misinterpretati on of events, lying and DECEPTION of RAW and “Mir Jaafars” of Pakistan. (I also include West Pakistani corrupt politicians and feudal hoards along with Bengali REBELS).
Throughout the Pakistan Movement, Congress and Fanatic Hindus incessantly worked on either stopping Pakistan movement or disintegrating Pakistan right after her inception. Historical records are available that depict the struggle between Pro and Anti Pakistan groups. India supported Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan (a Pathan congress member), GM Syed (A Sindhi Congress member), Mujiburahman (May Allah(swt) award him STRICTEST punishment in his grave), Unionist Party members, some Renegade Baluchi leaders etc. RAW continued to support them. They were successful to an extent. We lost Kashmir, Junagarh, Hyderabad, Assam etc. We lost Khan Liaqat Ali Khan. After that Punjabi fuedal lords (who were loyal to British, Hindus etc) took over and then they fucked every thing up. They made wrong decisions and neglected many Pakistanis. No proper system was established. There was poverty everywhere. BUT that is NO excuse of disintegrating Pakistan. We should have, as a Nation, stood up against all the oppression and mismanagement. Why we didn’t rise as a PAKISTNI NATION? Why did we choose Bengali Nationalism over Muslim Unity? I wished this hadn’t happened. It all started with the language issue when Jinnah made Urdu the national language of Pakistan. How DARE you traitors reject that? You guys are the FIRST one to sow the seed of racism/provincialism in Pakistan. After that we got divided into Punjabis,Sindhi s, Pathans and then Mohajirs. I am EXTREMELY angry while I am writing this.
Now you tell me all those Bengali-loving Bengalis, why you don’t make any language issue when you immigrate to foreign lands. There is NO movement in UK or USA against ENGLISH. There you accept English as an offical language and are satisfied with Bengali being a secondary langauge.
Allah’s (swt) WOE to ALL those who subscribed to this Idols and prefer the friendship of Kuffars over Muslims. You will gain nothing but “Zillat” (as it known in Urdu)

I wish you had realized this that we, together as a nation, could have conquered the Muslim belt of India between West and East Pakistan and up to Assam. We would have then become one big contiguous nation. We could have gotten WHOLE of Bengal.
It is still NOT too late. We can still join again but, maybe, as a confederation, union or mutually-cooperative block (like European union).
But first, we need to uncover all the facts hidden under years of deception. Please, Please and Please don’t hate those who subscribe to a different view than yours. Listen to what they have to say. Think about it and have the guts to admit the faults. How sure are you that it wasn’t Indian Army who committed the rape. Don’t forget why military had to be called. DON’T FORGET THIS IMPORTANT EVENT. If you think about it deeply many myths will be nullified. It was Mukti Bahini Hoards that started GENOCIDE of non-bengalis. They killed many, many, many INNOCENT Pakistanis which included (Punjabis, Pakistan-loving Bengalis, Biharis and other nationalities). These murderers were RUTHLESS. How can you say that THEY DIDN’T RAPE anyone? Those accounts have been CONVENIENTLY, either deleted or IGNORED. The number of killing was huge. I don’t know how much. When these traitors went overboard THEN Pak Army was called. They did what they SHOULD have done. KILL ALL THOSE BASTARD murderers who were responsible for all the FITNAH which resulted in so many innocent deaths.
I want you people to think logically. Keep all these facts in mind before you malign Pakistan or her Army. You can not get away with your crimes. If you are so vocal about Pak Army’s alleged persecution, then why CONVENIENTLY ignore the Mukti-Bahini persecution. They killed a huge number. I pray to Allah(swt) to let Muslims see thier enemies and be united under Islam.

Good to know. Now that you deny the number 3 million, would you please be kind and articulate enough to let the world know, exactly how many of our people and women the Napak army killed and raped?

You didn't read this book. Did you? Why don't you refute the writers argument if you feel so confident about yours? Can you please let us know why you people treat the 3 million figure as if thats a kind of divine entity. Where in fact it has no base at all. This shows the kind of hero worshipping you guys are engaged in. Just cause a despot like Mujib said so, you have to repeat it blindly. Don't you think the burden of proof lies on you guys as this imaginery figure was first purported by your master. So why ask others to prove it? Don't you think this kind of blatant lies and exaggeration severely affect you guy's credibility? Besides, the secessionist are solely responsible for all those people killed during 71. They have commited treachery in 71 and I'm sure they'll do it again. Bangladesh is still in severe denger by such collaborators of India.

Reading Mr Fatemolla's comment reminded me of that famous quote, "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it."- Adolf Hitler
The efforts to establish the imaginary 3 million figure as fact is a perfect example of such quotation in action. My question to Fatemolla is why not you show your arguments? The writer has already written a well argued book but still you are asking for more! What a joke! The onus is on you. Don't pass the bucket. You should be grateful that Dr Mumin has even bothered to spend time on such a ridiculous myth.

You tell me Fatemolla how many died? Just because you are a Baksalite you have to support any numbers. If that idiot Mujib came up with 6 million you morons would have beleived that! Logics, Data does not work there...because you guys are Nastik and serving Raw's agenda.

Please read a book by SHARMILA BOSE, an Indian Bengali researcher and professor, who wrote a book about this myth. Keep in mind she is INDIAN, so that you may have trust on the book. Because you don't trust YOUR half but you trust who SPLIT YOU into half. I wish you know the meaning of Ummah.

For your question of how many killed, the # of people died during the operation were given by then Govt. of East Pakistan.
Now the figures might be objectionable and debate can be generated. But the figure of "3 millions died" is questionable too. Since claim of 3M was made by Sheikh Mujib, the evidence should come from your side too.
Enough have been talked about it and time has come that both countries should move forward after settling such issues. Let's be practical and realistic.

BTW your forefathers had a due share in the creation of this Na-Pak Army. Blame them too. 1 killed or 3M killed have the same meanings. Using a baseless logic for all those innocents killed in the process, you are doing no service to them except adding more insult to their souls.

Hey All! It seems you guys are fighting which is no service to the greatest causes of your nations. There should be a criticism but it should be constructive not the destructive one. History itself is a big surgeon, when it will do the surgery, it will bring all the truths out. Who is guilty and who is not. Bengali Muslim or Pakistani Muslim. I would only say that both the nations should concentrate over the integrity and well-being of their countrymen. Calling "Kafirs" to one another is not a healthy practice. Does ISLAM teaches you that being Muslims? To those Pakistanis commenting here; don't you see it at least blessing in disguise that Bangladesh is a Free Muslim State which didn't became part of India. Claiming brotherhood is easy than proving it. Pakistan should strengthen the hands of Bangladesh, how bitter our past is, even then we are Muslims. Leave the rest with the history to do surgery of this myth and if you don't believe in that then leave it to Allah (SWT) - Who is the best of the best Judge. He will not spare any Bangladeshi, Pakistani or Indian - responsible for those involved in the crime of killing of innocent people on both sides. May Allah Bless you all.

Debunking the Myth: I believe there is still time to do a genuine survey on how many people died. But the problem is the AL hero-worshipers and the AL fascists will not allow it because it will kill the myth made by Mujib.
Let's say, even if the AL does the survey, with the accused murder suspect or the vandal judge as the chief, or any other fake AL judges people shouldn't trust the survey.

I know in our village only one person died on March 3. I was about to be killed by razakars but their aim was not sharp enough.

Like everything else polarized, I think the BNP is going claim the figure as 1 million including the Biharis, the AL will claim 3 million excluding the Biharis. But with a neutral survey we are going to claim something that is close to the real figure.

Some commentators are missing the issue here.
For those who support 3 million is not doing any favor to the victims of Pak Army genocide in 1971,one pays respect to those victim only and only by bringing about the accurate nos or the truth or near truth.
It is true some pro BAL elements are promoting the lie of nos of casualty just because thier demigod leader Mujib mentioned it once and insisted on the numbers. It is really stupidity of highest order to blindly believe a fake number.It is of no importance now after 40 yrs but clearly the figure has to be non controvercial. Even if it was 100 casualty it would still be abhored and I will seek for trail of the Pak Army officers involved and War criminals during the event victim being either the Bangladeshi muslims Hindu or the biharis.
For some people whose comment supports the Pakistan Army action are also filled with all wrong information and analysis, another extreme of misguided veiw about the 1971 event.
Mujib never wanted separation of state he clearly wanted to be PM of Pakistan which he rightfully deserved after getting the majority in the 1970 election. Mujib would have fled to India instead of waiting to be arrested by notorious Yahya Khan's Govt.
So spent your time in reading history not just from heresay and make intilligent comment.

Also mention those west Pakistani soldiers fighting against India at east Pakistan boarder, miles miles away from their home just to defend and save country from Indians. If u were one of them who would you shoot 1st? Indian offender at the boarder or khaarji mukti inside the boarder? I know people who chose to shoot Indian and got shot by muktis. I have met friends of those people. That's heartbreaking, you can't even imagine. I wish you people at least realize now you have been used. Allah bless you.

No question, Pak army savagely killed people in Bangladesh. Yahya Khan used religion as a tool of oppression. Injustice can never be sustained. And that gave rise to new Bangladesh.
What we need to carefully examine, what is the realistic number? How can Sheikh Mujib claim 3 million death?
Pak Army were stationed in East Pakistan: 35,000 soldiers. They were here for 260 days (9 months) only. For an army of 35,000 to kill 3,000,000 people in 260 days, that's almost impossible. The sensible statistics does not add up. Sheikh Mujib always flab about his achievements, he had a tenacity to exaggerate, in short lie. Mujib lied, and no one questioned him ever?

"Pak army savagely killed people in Bangladesh. Yahya Khan used religion as a tool of oppression. Injustice can never be sustained. And that gave rise to new Bangladesh." --- Yes this is what the Indians teach us but it's wrong. If there was no India there would be no change of East Pakistan. Pak army tried to eliminate agents working for India and this is the undeniable truth. Some East Pakistanis (and even W.Pakistanis) supported administrative separation of the two Pakistani wings, but that doesn't mean they supported intervention and invasion by India.

It's a shame to think that Bangladesh is standing on a big lie.
