Bangladeshi PM gifts Modi picture of 1971 Pakistani surrender
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks yesterday in Dhaka, Bangladesh provoked a response from the Pakistani government today. Reportedly, the Indian PM had placed blame on Pakistan for stoking terrorism and causing a nuisance for India. Today, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina added insult to injury when she presented Modi with a picture of the the 1971 war surrender.
In the 1971 war, Niazi surrendered his forces of almost 93,000 men to the Indian Armed Forces and the Mukti Bahini guerrilla armed resistance force. He stated that he had acted on the orders of the West Pakistan Military High Command under General Yahya Khan.
Modi had also paid homage to Sheikh Mujibur Rahman during his recent trip to India by visiting Bangabandhu Memorial Museum.
