1971 Defeat Shattered Prestige Of Pakistan: Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria

New Delhi: The humiliation suffered by Pakistan at the hands of the Indian defence forces in the 1971 war, still remains etched in the minds of our neighbours. As India celebrates the 50th anniversary of the win against Pakistan for the liberation of Bangladesh, Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria feels it shattered the prestige of Pakistan.

“The largest military surrender after the Second World War shattered the prestige of Pakistan military and left 93,000 Pakistani prisoners in captivity,” he said at an event today

“Pakistan lost a third of its Army, half its Navy and a quarter of its Air Force, bringing an end to atrocities the Pakistan Army had unleashed through its ‘Operation Searchlight’ on the predominantly Bengali population of East Pakistan,” Bhadauria was quoted by ANI.

The Air Chief Marshal is of the view that it was a memorable moment in world history. “The victory in the 1971 war was a landmark event in global history. On the signing of the instrument of surrender on 16 December 1971 in Dhaka, East Pakistan ceased to exist and Bangladesh was born,” he elaborated.
