1971 Tragedy-No Lessons Were Learnt-All The Same Mistakes Repeated Continually

    The surrender of the Pakistan Army in the former East Pakistan followed by the independence of Bangladesh is one of the most tragic events of the Islamic history. A heavy bloodshed took place prior to the surrender and then bloodshed followed the event. The casualties of both Bengalis and non-Bengalis are reckoned in heavy figures.

    Learning no lessons from the tragedy of the former East Pakistan, similar mistakes were continually repeated in the military operations of Baluchistan, KPK, Interior Sindh operations and Karachi.

    Will we never learn anything from even the most tragic events of our history?

    No one is learning lessons from tragic events of past. Army operations have failed in the past and will fail again in the future. For some people, learning process is slow. They are begharat people and yet they talk about more army operations.

    We learned one lesson from Bangladesh debacle - Pakistan cannot afford fair elections. Since then we have worked hard to ensure all elections are managed. As far as defense is concerned that is outsourced to private militias or security contractors infamously known as strategic assets.

    They have NOT learnt any lessons from tragedy of East Pakistan. Pakistan is still heading towards the same path with worsening situation in Balochistan.

    What is the future of rest of the Pakistan?

    I wonder why Mujeeb was not given his right of ruling after winning the elections of 1971. It was it legitimate right to form his government.


    Following the tragedy of 1971, the operations in Baluchistan, Interior Sindh, FATA, KPK and Karachi produced disasters.

    Punjabi establishment didn't want to loosen it's grip on authority. As far as I know Mujeeb, unlike Bhutto, wasn't from traditional ruling elite feudal. Mujeeb had roots in masses and his popularity was driven by anti Army hegemony. How could Army had accepted the election verdict? They need populist leaders like Zardari, Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan that they can trust at helm.

    The injustice committed by the army resulted into its own shameful surrender. The Indian commander remarked:

    Deen par mit gayeen tu shaheed
    Fateh hain tu ghazi hain
    Hatyar daalain tu niazi hain

    @J A Khan and HF

    You are right.

    Army operations are useless and produce no result but anger and frustration.

    I bet they have not learnt any lessons from the mistakes of 1971 failed military operation.

    The same mistakes of 1971 were repeated in Karachi, Baluchistan, KPK and FATA. Will we never learn anything from any mistakes?

    Not a single culprit of such a big tragedy was punished. Just the games of hurling excuses over each other were played all over the last forty one years.

    You are absolutely right. No setbacks no matter how damaging they were never taken seriously. The reason for that has been correctly expressed by you. The playboy General Agha Yahaya Khan was given a light punishment of house arrest for some years. Later, Gen. Agha was released by Zia’s government. It is said about Niazi that without any sense of shame he was sharing obscene jokes with his Sikh counterpart when they were traveling towards the place of surrendering ceremony.
