Did you know that Pakistan killed 1.5 million
Bangladeshi people in
1971 (in 267 days)? I saw this in a forum. I know that thousands of Muslims were killed in
Bangladesh. But please help me in finding out the truth. I want to know
the exact FACTS which caused that, please help me.
And also please can you give me some links or some information about the Muslims
who may have been killed/tortured in Netherlands, or any other human
rights violations there. Can you please point out some websites which may help
The events you refer to are an example of power politics not
by Islam and not excusable by the standards of Islamic morality. The
partition of India was part of the British divide and rule policy when
colonial era came to an end, and the ongoing conflict in Kashmir is
another direct consequence of this. The by then already key superpower
in the world, the United States of America, was in tacit agreement with
this British policy (see link below). Small, less viable states competing with each other stand less in
way of outside interests and thus afford the outside power a better
chance of enhancing its sphere of influence. After the second world
war this policy has been followed throughout the world, leading to
countless regional conflicts across the globe paving the way for
continuing Western hegemony after direct rule became untenable.
We are not aware of any reported killings or tortures of Muslims in the
Netherlands (assuming that this question refers to modern day Holland
and not to its role in its former colonies which, for example, created
ongoing problem in East Timor), and can only guess that the question
might refer to the failure of Dutch UN peace keepers to protect Bosnian
Muslims in Srebenica in 1995 who were afterwards slaughtered in their
thousands by the Serbs.
