Indian defence minister compares 1971 victory with 'Lanka Vijay'
Indian Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Sunday compared 1971 Liberation War with Ramayana, in which Lord Rama won Lanka and gave it to Vibhishana. “We did the same in Bangladesh. We do not want to harm anyone, but if someone harms us, a befitting reply will be given…Lord Hanuman did not know of his powers before going to Lanka, I made our armed forces realise their power,” he was quoted as saying. India played a vital role in Bangladesh Liberation War. India opened their border along Bangladesh so that refugees can have shelter food and live safely in and trained Bangladeshi fighters as well. Once Pakistan launch attacked in North India, India came in open and support Bangladesh with their military force. India sent their army troops at December 3, 1971, 13 days before Bangladesh secured its victory. and before came in light, BSF was doing the same thing under the dark. Then prime minister Indira Gandhi supported Bangladesh’s Independence movement at international level as well. Parrikar’s tough talk against Pakistan comes when New Delhi’s diplomatic encirclement of Pakistan seems to be paying off. The international community, including Pakistan’s traditional allies, has maintained a studied silence on India’s surgical strikes, while underscoring the need to act against terrorism, indirectly bracketing Pakistan. On Saturday, Indian army chief General Dalbir Singh also reviewed military preparedness at the northern and western borders. He visited the Udhampur-based Northern Command and interacted with the special forces men who destroyed seven terror launch pads in PoK, killing at least 35 terrorists and their handlers.
