None of the Generals have admitted that there was a joint command. They tried to avoid mentioning the freedom fighters. It seems that defeat in the hands of Indians is still acceptable, but it is unthinkable to admit that Bangalis could beat them in war. Of course the Bangalis were mainly responsible for the break-up of Pakistan, the Generals say, but those in West Pakistan were also responsible and for it, the onus lie on Bhutto and Yahya. Yahya Khan is made the main scapegoat because he is dead he cannot refute the allegations.
Then Fazal Mukim Khan offers an interesting theory. His believes that India had a two-faced policy from the very beginning. Her doors were closed for West Pakistan, but open wide for the East. The Nehru-Liaqat Treaty of 1947, which allowed swapping of Hindu and Muslim population between the two countries, did not apply for East Pakistan. So, although 80% wealth of the West Pakistan came under the West Pakistani Muslims, the wealth in East Pakistan remained in the hands of the Hindus, and they gradually transferred that wealth to India.
In the concluding lines of the Introduction of a book by Ahmed Selim, Tariq has written in a more eloquent form what he told me in Islamabad. He has called on everyone to remember the grim reality of 1971 and to ask for forgiveness to the dead. He has called for compromise and forgiveness. This, he says, will not alter the past but may change the course of the future. He hopes that this would help create a strong bond with Bangladesh, which is important for avoiding the creation of another Bangladesh.
