Bangladesh Liberation War 1971: Former Air Vice Marshal Explains Behind-The-Scenes And Military Preparations

India Narrative in conversation with former Air Vice Marshal Arjun Subramaniam sheds light on behind-the-scenes political and military preparations to free Bangladesh from Pakistani atrocities. In 1970, under the instructions from then Pakistani military dictator Yahya Khan, the Hindu minority in the erstwhile East Pakistan faced horrific human right abuses – rapes, destruction of life and property and mass migration to India. Flooded by the new refugees, New Delhi faced a dilemma, to end the crisis politically or use the military option. India celebrates 16th December as Vijay Diwas to remember the courage and sacrifices of the Indian military and the Mukti Bahani.
