BANGLADESH foreign minister has asked our foreign minister to apologise for “war crimes” committed by the army during the 1971 war.
It amounts to ridiculing sacrifices of those soldiers not involved in any crime, incriminating the entire population of West Pakistan being mercilessly flogged during martial law, condoning heinous crimes committed by the revolting soldiers and Mukti Bahini against our soldiers and their families.
I loved East Pakistanis and now I love Bangladeshis as well, not responsible for the 1971 tragedy. Let us jointly agree and condemn all those at the top responsible for break-up of Pakistan and the atrocities, the greatest tragedy since 1947 as I feel.
