Monster makes fun of creator: Taliban leader shames Pakistan, shares 1971 surrender picture


New Delhi: Pakistan tasted their own medicine when an Afghan Taliban member shamed them for surrendering to India in the 1971 war that led to the creation of a new nation, Bangladesh from erstwhile East Pakistan.

Warning Pakistan against attacking the Taliban, Taliban member Ahmad Yasir tweeted, “Interior Minister of Pakistan! Excellent Sir! Afghanistan, Syria and Pakistan are not Turkey to target the Kurds in Syria. This is Afghanistan, the graveyard of proud empires. Do not think of a military attack on us, otherwise, there will be a shameful repetition of the military agreement with India.”

Notably, this was the largest military surrender after the second world war happened when 93,000 soldiers from the Pakistan Army laid down their arms in front of Indian Forces – liberating and giving birth to a new nation Bangladesh.

The 1971 Indo-Pak War started with the Pakistan side, launching pre-emptive strikes on a large number of Indian Air Force (IAF) bases. A swift response to these unprovoked attacks was launched by the Indian Defence Forces on the Western and Eastern Fronts, on land, sea, and air.

With the proactive action of the Indian Armed Forces, around 93,000 Pakistani soldiers surrendered in Dhaka and Bangladesh emerged as an independent country.
