The immediate responsibility for executing the plan of this action fell on Lt. Even if he hamoodur rehman commission report in been obliged to surrender, by force of circumstances, it was not necessary for him to behave in this shameful manner at every step of the process of surrender. Rahim Khan and some of the Brigadiers, we cannot help remarking that all the Senior Officers stationed in East Pakistan immediately before and during the war of must be held collectively responsible for the failings and weaknesses which led to the defeat of the Pakistan Army.

Yakub Malik, in which ckmmission Bengali Officers and men were just slain by a flick of one Officer’s fingers should suffice hamoodur rehman commission report in an example.

Niazi would have been to concentrate his troops in a smaller area, protected by the major natural obstacles around the military and political lynch pin – Dacca.

In this context we have also taken note of the inexplicable orders issued by the Eastern Command to stop the destruction of war before material before the surrenderand the abject and shameful attitude adopted by the Commander, Eastern Command, at various stages of the surrender ceremonies in the presence of the Indian Generals.

Now that all the prisoners of war and civil internees have returned to Pakistan, the Government has asked the Commission to complete this part of its inquiry. Finally, we have observed that during his period of captivity at Jabbalpur India Lt General Niazi made efforts to persuade, by threats and inducements, his subordinate Commanders to present a coordinated story so as to mitigate his responsibility for the debate.

In its introductory section, the commission reports on “the moral aspect of the causes of our defeat in the War”. In the first place, there is section 24 which is in the following terms: The paucity of troops did not permit them to be manned but it was expected that the troops deployed along the border and in counter insurgency operations would gradually fall back and take up defensive positions within the fortresses and strong points.

Not hamoodur rehman commission report in anyone is waiting for an official declassification. After the repatriation of prisoners of war from India, the Hamoodur rehman commission report in was reactivated in May, We have now examined not only Lt. It was maintained in the Report that the defeat suffered by the armed forces was not a result of military factors alone, but had been brought about as the cumulative result of political, international, moral and military factors.

Farman Ali advised Lt. Nevertheless, ln a result of our detailed study of the written statement, submitted by the General and the lengthy cross-examination to which we subjected him during his appearance before us, as well as the evidences from other witnesses from East Pakistan, we have formed the view that Maj.

Altaf Qadir, who had also previously acted as Military Adviser to the Commission, was re-appointed as such as also was Mr. It may be mentioned that according to a public announcement of the Government of Pakistan published in newspapers hamkodur the 11th January, all proceedings before the Commission would be in camera and the statements made before and addressed to it would be absolutely privileged and would not render a person making any such statement liable to any civil or criminal proceedings except when such statement is false.

It is this supplementary report that we have access to today. Hamoodur rehman commission report in thought more of death than these things. To a great extent I executed this order. Malik who till very nearly the end was the Governor of East Pakistan, but in his case also we had firsthand evidence of every important event and we, therefore, now feel ourselves competent to submit our final conclusions. There is, however, nothing to show that they contemplated the use of excessive force or the Commission of atrocities and excesses on the people of East Pakistan.

We would, accordingly, hamoodur rehman commission report in the recommendation made by us in Paragraph 7 of Chapter III of Para V of the main report that the Government of Pakistan should set up a high-powered Court or Commission of Inquiry to investigate these allegations, and to hold trials of those who indulged in these hamoodur rehman commission report in, brought a bad name to the Pakistan Army and alienated the sympathies of the local population by their 42 acts of wanton cruelty and immorality against our own people.
