Many myths have been formed around the creation of Bangladesh. Among them is the fiction that the defeated Pakistan Army savagely killed three million people and raped three hundred thousand women during their less than nine months unsuccessful fight to preserve the integrity of a united Pakistan.

Recalling this 'heinous' Pakistani crime with suave moral indignation was made into a national ritual. Not only the beaten Pakistan Army but also the subverted Pakistan came to be portrayed as inherently evil and her dismemberment a triumph of civilized values over barbarism. No less a figure than the 'Father of the Nation' was made to consecrate the lore. With his stamp of authority behind it, his grateful children were implicitly compelled into faithfully repeating it. Not to accept it as 'the whole truth, nothing but the truth' with unquestioning faith was to fall short of being a 'Bengali patriot'. In those hallucinatory days of 'liberated' Bangladesh, the premium for such a terrible shortcoming was not merely dear, but potentially fatal. The 'permanent disappearance' of Zahir Raihan, the celebrated writer and film director, who showed the audacity of forming and heading 'The Buddhijibi Nidhan Tayithanusandhan Committee' (The Fact Finding Committee on the Killing of Intellectuals), in January 1972 [1] was a calculated warning to all doubting Bangladeshis. Understandably, the skeptics kept quiet and the scoundrels and the credulous joined the chorus masters in singing the saga of three million ‘martyrs’ and three hundred thousand 'heroines'.
Once the ‘Father of the Nation’ had fallen into disrepute and even came to be accused of treachery to the Bangladeshi nation’, some of the deified artefacts adorning the liberationist altar came to be seen as mendacious. But not this nor any other Pakistani crime; at least not officially. The successive masters of Bangladesh have shown no interest in exonerating Pakistan from any charges, however undeserved they might have been. Instead, by keeping them alive they skilfully played politics by veering on the sides of the accused and the accuser all at once. Alongside the dubious opportunism of the occupants of power, the dwindling band of the conscious keepers of the 'Bengali spirit of liberation' have continued their efforts to keep the myth alive through a more vociferous recital.

Yet, over the years, questioning voices were heard. These were not from the much maligned 'pro-Pakistanis' alone, but also from among the unimpeachable 'liberationists' and their 'Indian comrades', including the highest Indian most generals who gave Bangladesh its 'Cesarean birth'. Some of the latter have, of course, their own fiction to sell.

Curiously, those in Pakistan have remained indolent. There was no attempt to refute any of the vile accusations, including this very loathsome charge. Instead, there appeared to be a misplaced hope that apologetic smile to any and every charge would help in taking the heat out and once sobriety was restored and goodwill regenerated, the time would arrive for the truth to come out. Despite its many attractions, such a stand back posture has helped in perpetuating the falsehood and possibly retarding the restoration of the brotherly relationship between the peoples of Pakistan and Bangladesh. [2] For the intention of the mythmakers was to harbour hatred.

In order to create a healthy relationship between the two peoples it is essential to admit, and where possible to take measures to amend, all past mistakes committed by either people and their leaders. However, it is imperative that such steps should be taken on both sides with fidelity to truth and not on opportunism or contrived facts and unfounded myths.
.
Like many other myths of its kind, the fiction of three million dead and three hundred thousand women raped was not politically innocent; and it is time to recognise this both in Pakistan and in Bangladesh. Not to do so would be a disservice to truth and damaging to the interest of the people of both countries, especially the people of Bangladesh. This would be so, for any further credence to such a poisonous myth would perpetuate the psychic isolation and the splintered Muslim self-view of the people of Bangladesh in their geopolitically island-like setting. This would not serve their enlightened national self-interest, nor their independence. Instead, this would help those in and outside their country who wish to do away with their very existence as a Muslim nation.

BEHIND THE MYTH OF THREE MILLION is a re-examination of a sad chapter in the relationship of the people of Pakistan and Bangladesh and exposes its utterly contrived nature as well as the motive behind such inventiveness. I am one of those whose family were reported among the casualties of Pakistan Army's action in Dhaka on the night of 26 March 1971. Some of my personal friends within the 'liberationist' camp even had a condolence meeting for me in their Indian safe heaven! I am not alone in having been counted as dead. Countless other people could tell a similar story of their own. Some have even found their names engraved in the commemorative plaques solemnly dedicated in memory of the fallen heroes of the Bangladesh War. [3] Being one of many such' 'reincarnated' beings, I feel duty bound to help remove the myth which is of no service either to my fellow countrymen or to history. Yet, mindful of the requirement of objectivity I have chosen to confine myself to published works and recorded sources and have analysed them with the utmost fidelity to the truth. The ultimate judgement lies with the reader and it is my hope that they would find the pages that follow both interesting and informative.

In putting facts over fiction, I risk ruffling the feathers of those who for all manner of reasons have allowed themselves to be beguiled. Even if a few of them start considering the facts and begin rethinking their position, I shall consider my efforts worth-while. For those who in their blinkered disposition refuse to distinguish facts from fiction and continue to follow the pied pipers of the 'spirit of liberation' fame, who have - to my mind and I hope many would agree with me - no better function other than leading the Muslim Nation of Bangladesh towards its national suicide, I can only pray for divine guidance.

A friend has helped me with source materials and other friends have joined him in encouraging me for a quick completion of the work. All of them have done so, I am sure, out of friendship and not for credit. The friend who helped me with source materials particularly wanted to remain anonymous. In deference to his wish, I refrain from naming him and other friends. However, saliently and sincerely I acknowledge their debt and pray for their continued well-being.

February, 1996 (Dr. M. Abdul Mu’min Chowdhury)

NOTES AND REFERENCES
1. Zahir Raihan was a Marxist who was said to have been disillusioned while in Calcutta and did not believe that the 'intellectuals' found murdered in Dhaka on the eve of 16 December 1971- who included his elder brother Shahidullah Kaiser- could have been killed at the behest of the Pakistan Army as has been alleged. The rumour has it that he also had incriminatory photographs of questionable activities of the Awami League leaders in India. While gathering information about the killing he was kidnapped in Dhaka in broad day light and was never seen again. There is no doubt that he was killed by either those who were at risk of being exposed or those who did not like the truth behind the killing of the intellectuals to come out.

Why did this issue come up in the first place after so many years? Pakistanis and their local collaborators are war criminals. Our history is well documented and the facts are established truth. I don’t care what is written. I am sure a sinister circle including the Pakistan army is behind the financing the disinformation cyber-campaign. Indian intelligence agencies should see if ISI agent trying to smear the joint Indo-Bangla war to liberate Bangladesh in 1971.

Those who have lived through the time or studied the genocide committed by the Pakistan army in Bangladesh are not easily susceptible to forays into genocide denial. It appears that books like this are aimed at those that are not familiar with the genocide. It is vitally important for Bangladeshis to preserve the history of our struggle for independence. To fail to do so would be a dishonor to the memory of those who died and to those survivors who were tormented by the Pakistani army and the Razakars.

What you said is only fabrication and denial of actual atrocities. Many books have busted the lie (manufactured by India). Beside logic and research, a lot of why we know the killing and rape allegations are fake is because of elders who saw that so-called genocide. You only want to discredit Pakistanis and patriotic United Pakistanis even by making up stories about your moms and sisters. If we really suffered that much, then you wouldn't have to force everyone so much into hating current-Pakistan and our former United Pakistan and force us into loving India.

If you were not lying, you would not have to try this much to make us hate current Pakistanis and former United Pakistan patriots. Besides logic and research, we know you are lying because we know from older people who saw the so-called genocide in 1971. Stop spreading hatred and stop making up stories about your moms and sisters. Stop repeating stories made by Hindus to make us forget what they did to our Muslim forefathers before our independence from Britain,

You guys are so pathetic. You have been bought out by the Indian propaganda that you are unable to see light. Can’t you see how India used you against Pakistan? and now the same thing she is doing to you: disintegration of Bangladesh.
You idiots thought Mujib was your saviour and thought promulgation of Urdu really would marginalize you eventhough during Sirajudaullah’s time official language of Bengal had been Persian and Urdu. Mujib (died a rightful death) deceived your inside out. You guys chose the Kuffars over your Muslim brothers violating the Holy Quranic injunctions against making friends with Kuffars.
You still believe in that myth of Pakistan Army raping Bengali women. Eventhough, there are numerous reports out there now which negates the well established beliefs. The declassified US reports, Indian military officers account, Pakistan military officers account, General Niazi’s memoirs, Sharmila Bose, Hamoodurahman commission report.
I first ask you what is the punishment for a defector/rebel throughout the international community? You will agree that it is pain of death. Mujiburahman started the racial divide by creating the language issue: to make Bengali the national language of Pakistan. Bengali, being only spoken in Bengal, could not have been understood in West Pakistan. Urdu, on the other hand, was understood everywhere. He then created more problems for Pakistan. He was not the one who fought for Pakistan movement. He was an opportunists working for Russia and then India. Mujib and his cohorts should have been hanged to death as soon as the revolt had started.
Pakistan Army was justified in her actions against bengali rebels. Any self-respecting country will do that. So did India too when she murdered all members of Khalistan movement. Unfortunately, Pakistan did not have loyal leaders. Their wrong decisions made everything worse.
Pakistan Military action ONLY begun when Mukti-Bahini hoards started murdering lacs of innocent West Pakistanis (specially Punjabis) and loyal Bengali and Bihari Pakistanis (who you morons hate). These Hoards of India were responsible for the rape.
Pakistan Military officers fought hard. Many foreign correspondents speak well of their bravery. It is the bravery of a Muslim soldier that Indian Military got tough fight. These Pakistani Mard-e-Momin fought so hard that they had almost regained the control of East Pakistan from the dirty hands of Mukt-Bahini. When India saw this, She then started the military action which resulted in the fall of Dhaka.
Then your Traitor Mujib showed his true colors after the formation of Bangladesh with his BAKSAL party. How he became authoritative and usurped democracy is not a secret anymore. He was going to make Bangladesh part of India that he was killed timely by the Pakistani military officers (yes those Bengalis who never gave up allegiance to Pakistan. I stand in honor for them).
And still you called this traitor Baga-bundu?? How stupid can you guys be?
Instead of taking the opportunity to understand the other side of the story (in order that some misunderstandin g can be fought and truth is revealed), you malign them as Pakistani agent.
Why? Why your small mind can not see things beyond the tunnel created for you by RAW? Can’t you guys see that Kuffars will not be happy until they subjugate Muslims? How dare you forget the mistreatment of Bengali Muslims by the Hindu majority before Partition.
For Allah(swt) sake, don’t regurgitate what Indians want you to regurgitate. Take a step back, think outside of the box and see things from Pakistani perspective. If you were in the same shoes, you will do the same. Don’t forget the recent mutiny. just think of how you wanted to protect Bangladesh integrity when recent mutiny happened, similarly Pakistan was doing the same. Listen to what these experts are saying. Don’t put blindfolds on your eyes. There is evidences everywhere. Secrets have been declassified. Eye witness accounts are available. It is time to do a serious reprisal of our faults, shortcomings and vow not to repeat it again.
Do the following ASAP:1) Watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULpCroezFrY 2) Read “RAW in Bangladesh by ZainulAbedin (an ex-Mukti Bahini member) on 1971 war. 3) Read Blood and tears by a Pakistani writer about 1971 war. 4) Check the website of Federation of American Scientist on 1971 war 5) Read “East Pakistan Tragedy” by L.F. Rushbrook Williams.

65 million of the 75 million Bengalis in Bangladesh 1971 were Muslims. These Muslims were figthing kuffars like you, the NaPaki Army and the Jamati-e-Munafiqeens. These spawns of Iblis were stopped by the inheritors of the sword of Hazrat Shah Jalal, RA. But not liquidated with the hope that these being will see the Deen of Allah, and take up the siratul mustaquim. Alas, Iblis continues to keep them on the path of jahaliya, they continue to surface their faces into the path of the muslims, faces lacking the Noor of Allah. Their return is not disheartening, for we realise that even the Khatam-un-Nabi Mohammad s.a.w faced such kuffars, so for us to face you is nothing, it continues to give us the opportunity to fight in the way of Allah and slay and be slayed. May Allah grant you hidayat before the sword of Hazrat Shah Jalal befalls you.

Don’t forget you are a Muslim FIRST. Your allegiance is to ALLAH (swt) not to any “Shah Jalal”. I haven’t even heard of his name.
It is NOT smart to REGURGITATE what you have been fed. As a nation you haven’t gained ANYTHING. You are still IMPOVERISHED and still face flood every years. You aren’t able to do ZILCH about it but you had the audacity to blame West Pakistan for your ills.
Now where is all the revenue that you claim you used to have? Now you got 100% of all of your revenues but you still are pathetically poor. You are worse than Pakistan. I see a lot of Bangladeshis working in Pakistan. You guys have so much poverty that you take lower wages in UAE and other foreign countries. Where is all the prosperity that Mujib promised you?
Think about it. Ponder over these facts. You played yourself into the hands of enemies of Islam. “They” used you as a pawn against their imperialistic objective. They not only took revenge of Islamic rule (Indira Gandhi’s said that) but also disintegrated an otherwise strong nation. You still have the same problems as you had before 1971. They only thing you have is just Bangla-language.
Go ahead eat, sleep, drink, and wear your Bangla language or better yet, sing “Vand-e-Mataram”. Your culture and language is sooo Hinduish. At least, Punjabis, Pathans, Sindhis, Baluchis switched to Arabic Script. While you guys stand proud of your Sanskirit origin knowing full well how Hindu Bengalis persecuted Muslims Bengalis before partition.
May Allah(swt) open your eyes and you stop seeing life through your Bengali-nationalistic glasses.
I STAND in HONOR for those Pakistanis who laid their lives to protect the honor and integration of Pakistan. I stand in honor to those Pakistanis who rejected Bangladeshi nationality. These LOVERS of Pakistan chose destitution over surrender.
I cry for them and pray to Allah(swt) to give them a place in Pakistan. These are our sons and daughters who Pakistan need to own. Unfortunately, the seed of racism that you bengalis have sown in Pakistan is soooo deep rooted in Pakistan, that no one is allowing these Biharis to return because they fear that it will increase the population of Muhajirs.
You guys are partially responsible for their plight on two counts: First sowing the seed of provincialism and Second, disintegrating Pakistan. Hasbunallaho Wa Naimalwakeel

To all those worshippers of Bengali Idol,
You should analyze things impartially from the bottom of your heart. In Pakistan, many have done the retrospection and many believe that Bengalis were wronged. To this day, we have blamed Pakistan Army UNTIL some brave men and women came out with the other side of the picture. Agartalah Conspiracy had exposed the designs of Mujib and India. He was arrested (just like any sovereign nation would arrest the defectors) and should have been IMMEDIATELY hanged but unfortunately, our STUPID politicians didn’t realize India’s game and this Traitor was released who did the very thing which he was arrested for. That he announced the formation of Bangladesh while still in Pakistan and as a Pakistani Citizen. I call it the BLATANT FORM of defection.
It is simply logical how can the KUFFARS be your friend. KUFFARS can be friends of each other and not to any Muslim. The benefits that they have given you superficially is just a joke. In return of that, they have taken your freedom.
Knowing very well when and why RAW was formed, knowing that they hired Moosad’s assistance to disintegrate Pakistan and knowing the DECLASSIFIED information, I REJECT the myth of Pakistan Army’s rape. I am 100% convinced it is based on propaganda, misinterpretati on of events, lying and DECEPTION of RAW and “Mir Jaafars” of Pakistan. (I also include West Pakistani corrupt politicians and feudal hoards along with Bengali REBELS).
Throughout the Pakistan Movement, Congress and Fanatic Hindus incessantly worked on either stopping Pakistan movement or disintegrating Pakistan right after her inception. Historical records are available that depict the struggle between Pro and Anti Pakistan groups. India supported Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan (a Pathan congress member), GM Syed (A Sindhi Congress member), Mujiburahman (May Allah(swt) award him STRICTEST punishment in his grave), Unionist Party members, some Renegade Baluchi leaders etc. RAW continued to support them. They were successful to an extent. We lost Kashmir, Junagarh, Hyderabad, Assam etc. We lost Khan Liaqat Ali Khan. After that Punjabi fuedal lords (who were loyal to British, Hindus etc) took over and then they fucked every thing up. They made wrong decisions and neglected many Pakistanis. No proper system was established. There was poverty everywhere. BUT that is NO excuse of disintegrating Pakistan. We should have, as a Nation, stood up against all the oppression and mismanagement. Why we didn’t rise as a PAKISTNI NATION? Why did we choose Bengali Nationalism over Muslim Unity? I wished this hadn’t happened. It all started with the language issue when Jinnah made Urdu the national language of Pakistan. How DARE you traitors reject that? You guys are the FIRST one to sow the seed of racism/provincialism in Pakistan. After that we got divided into Punjabis,Sindhi s, Pathans and then Mohajirs. I am EXTREMELY angry while I am writing this.
Now you tell me all those Bengali-loving Bengalis, why you don’t make any language issue when you immigrate to foreign lands. There is NO movement in UK or USA against ENGLISH. There you accept English as an offical language and are satisfied with Bengali being a secondary langauge.
Allah’s (swt) WOE to ALL those who subscribed to this Idols and prefer the friendship of Kuffars over Muslims. You will gain nothing but “Zillat” (as it known in Urdu)

I wish you had realized this that we, together as a nation, could have conquered the Muslim belt of India between West and East Pakistan and up to Assam. We would have then become one big contiguous nation. We could have gotten WHOLE of Bengal.
It is still NOT too late. We can still join again but, maybe, as a confederation, union or mutually-cooperative block (like European union).
But first, we need to uncover all the facts hidden under years of deception. Please, Please and Please don’t hate those who subscribe to a different view than yours. Listen to what they have to say. Think about it and have the guts to admit the faults. How sure are you that it wasn’t Indian Army who committed the rape. Don’t forget why military had to be called. DON’T FORGET THIS IMPORTANT EVENT. If you think about it deeply many myths will be nullified. It was Mukti Bahini Hoards that started GENOCIDE of non-bengalis. They killed many, many, many INNOCENT Pakistanis which included (Punjabis, Pakistan-loving Bengalis, Biharis and other nationalities). These murderers were RUTHLESS. How can you say that THEY DIDN’T RAPE anyone? Those accounts have been CONVENIENTLY, either deleted or IGNORED. The number of killing was huge. I don’t know how much. When these traitors went overboard THEN Pak Army was called. They did what they SHOULD have done. KILL ALL THOSE BASTARD murderers who were responsible for all the FITNAH which resulted in so many innocent deaths.
I want you people to think logically. Keep all these facts in mind before you malign Pakistan or her Army. You can not get away with your crimes. If you are so vocal about Pak Army’s alleged persecution, then why CONVENIENTLY ignore the Mukti-Bahini persecution. They killed a huge number. I pray to Allah(swt) to let Muslims see thier enemies and be united under Islam.

You didn't read this book. Did you? Why don't you refute the writers argument if you feel so confident about yours? Can you please let us know why you people treat the 3 million figure as if thats a kind of divine entity. Where in fact it has no base at all. This shows the kind of hero worshipping you guys are engaged in. Just cause a despot like Mujib said so, you have to repeat it blindly. Don't you think the burden of proof lies on you guys as this imaginery figure was first purported by your master. So why ask others to prove it? Don't you think this kind of blatant lies and exaggeration severely affect you guy's credibility? Besides, the secessionist are solely responsible for all those people killed during 71. They have commited treachery in 71 and I'm sure they'll do it again. Bangladesh is still in severe denger by such collaborators of India.

Reading Mr Fatemolla's comment reminded me of that famous quote, "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it."- Adolf Hitler
The efforts to establish the imaginary 3 million figure as fact is a perfect example of such quotation in action. My question to Fatemolla is why not you show your arguments? The writer has already written a well argued book but still you are asking for more! What a joke! The onus is on you. Don't pass the bucket. You should be grateful that Dr Mumin has even bothered to spend time on such a ridiculous myth.

For your question of how many killed, the # of people died during the operation were given by then Govt. of East Pakistan.
Now the figures might be objectionable and debate can be generated. But the figure of "3 millions died" is questionable too. Since claim of 3M was made by Sheikh Mujib, the evidence should come from your side too.
Enough have been talked about it and time has come that both countries should move forward after settling such issues. Let's be practical and realistic.

Hey All! It seems you guys are fighting which is no service to the greatest causes of your nations. There should be a criticism but it should be constructive not the destructive one. History itself is a big surgeon, when it will do the surgery, it will bring all the truths out. Who is guilty and who is not. Bengali Muslim or Pakistani Muslim. I would only say that both the nations should concentrate over the integrity and well-being of their countrymen. Calling "Kafirs" to one another is not a healthy practice. Does ISLAM teaches you that being Muslims? To those Pakistanis commenting here; don't you see it at least blessing in disguise that Bangladesh is a Free Muslim State which didn't became part of India. Claiming brotherhood is easy than proving it. Pakistan should strengthen the hands of Bangladesh, how bitter our past is, even then we are Muslims. Leave the rest with the history to do surgery of this myth and if you don't believe in that then leave it to Allah (SWT) - Who is the best of the best Judge. He will not spare any Bangladeshi, Pakistani or Indian - responsible for those involved in the crime of killing of innocent people on both sides. May Allah Bless you all.

Debunking the Myth: I believe there is still time to do a genuine survey on how many people died. But the problem is the AL hero-worshipers and the AL fascists will not allow it because it will kill the myth made by Mujib.
Let's say, even if the AL does the survey, with the accused murder suspect or the vandal judge as the chief, or any other fake AL judges people shouldn't trust the survey.

I know in our village only one person died on March 3. I was about to be killed by razakars but their aim was not sharp enough.

Like everything else polarized, I think the BNP is going claim the figure as 1 million including the Biharis, the AL will claim 3 million excluding the Biharis. But with a neutral survey we are going to claim something that is close to the real figure.

Some commentators are missing the issue here.
For those who support 3 million is not doing any favor to the victims of Pak Army genocide in 1971,one pays respect to those victim only and only by bringing about the accurate nos or the truth or near truth.
It is true some pro BAL elements are promoting the lie of nos of casualty just because thier demigod leader Mujib mentioned it once and insisted on the numbers. It is really stupidity of highest order to blindly believe a fake number.It is of no importance now after 40 yrs but clearly the figure has to be non controvercial. Even if it was 100 casualty it would still be abhored and I will seek for trail of the Pak Army officers involved and War criminals during the event victim being either the Bangladeshi muslims Hindu or the biharis.
For some people whose comment supports the Pakistan Army action are also filled with all wrong information and analysis, another extreme of misguided veiw about the 1971 event.
Mujib never wanted separation of state he clearly wanted to be PM of Pakistan which he rightfully deserved after getting the majority in the 1970 election. Mujib would have fled to India instead of waiting to be arrested by notorious Yahya Khan's Govt.
So spent your time in reading history not just from heresay and make intilligent comment.

Also mention those west Pakistani soldiers fighting against India at east Pakistan boarder, miles miles away from their home just to defend and save country from Indians. If u were one of them who would you shoot 1st? Indian offender at the boarder or khaarji mukti inside the boarder? I know people who chose to shoot Indian and got shot by muktis. I have met friends of those people. That's heartbreaking, you can't even imagine. I wish you people at least realize now you have been used. Allah bless you.

No question, Pak army savagely killed people in Bangladesh. Yahya Khan used religion as a tool of oppression. Injustice can never be sustained. And that gave rise to new Bangladesh.
What we need to carefully examine, what is the realistic number? How can Sheikh Mujib claim 3 million death?
Pak Army were stationed in East Pakistan: 35,000 soldiers. They were here for 260 days (9 months) only. For an army of 35,000 to kill 3,000,000 people in 260 days, that's almost impossible. The sensible statistics does not add up. Sheikh Mujib always flab about his achievements, he had a tenacity to exaggerate, in short lie. Mujib lied, and no one questioned him ever?

"Pak army savagely killed people in Bangladesh. Yahya Khan used religion as a tool of oppression. Injustice can never be sustained. And that gave rise to new Bangladesh." --- Yes this is what the Indians teach us but it's wrong. If there was no India there would be no change of East Pakistan. Pak army tried to eliminate agents working for India and this is the undeniable truth.
