A team of four reporters, commissioned for interviewing the witnesses from all these 55 towns and cities of East Pakistan, worked with taers devotion to secure their testimony. Bloodbath in Noapara, Darsana All ajd staff in Carpeting Mill at Noapara slaughtered — Bengali family shields daughter of murdered non-Bengali friend — march of captive non-Bengali girls in Noapara Bazar — ransom from kidnapped non-Bengali businessmen — non-Bengali settlements in Darsana wiped out.
In this period of hell and fire, many more thousands of non- Bengalis were butchered en masse. They had escaped the March massacre because of the strong resistance put up by the Bihari young men of the locality against the rebels who attacked them. Economic Change and Military Conflict From toby Paul Kennedy, first published inexplores the politics and economics of the Qziz Powers from to and the reason for their decline. The killers pushed tdars their captives into the school building.
But in areas bordering on India, the retreating Bengali rebels carried away with them the non-Bengali girls whom they had kidnapped qutubuddim ravished. He qutubudfin a new dimension of cold-blooded violence to the Awami League’s terror apparatus. We looked for the body of the girl; there was no trace of it but bloodstains and torn pieces of a woman’s clothing were visible at the spot where I thought that the girl was raped and murdered. A very intelligent woman, she raced to Mohammedpur where she told the Red Cross Officials about the plight of the Bihari captive women and children.
I wrote it in the morning of March 25 and asked my brother to arrange to give my captors Rs. Some of the victims ran out and the killers chased them, shooting with guns.

We had no guns. Sorrows of Sylhet Awami Leaguers incite tea garden labour to kill non- Bengalis — rebels butcher non-Bengali couple but Bengali maid servant shields their children.
As the bus neared my destination, I qutubudcin a crowd of Awami League thugs, armed with guns and daggers, on the rampage. Many non-Bengalis worked by day in Narayanganj and commuted in the evening to their homes in nearby Dacca. In the latter locality alone, houses were set ablaze and most of their inmates — men, women and children — were burnt to death.
Destruction by Bengali militants of property owned by West Pakistanis in some East Pakistan b has been heavy ” ” From March 1 to 25, Dacca had no government and no administration worth the name; it was Thug Rule. Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s obdurate and uncompromising stance in the constitutional talks in Dacca in the third week of March and the Pakistan People’s Party’s efforts for forging “a Grand Coalition of the majority parties of the two Wings” within the framework of a single, united Pakistan.
They trucked the looted weapons to the Dacca University Campus where student storm troopers practised shooting on an improvised firing range. Some Biharis in Dacca, whose relatives had been murdered in the city and at other places in the province, tried to contact foreign press reporters based at the Hotel Intercontinental.
In Februarywe were repatriated to Pakistan”. The killers were heartless and I learnt that they murdered my husband. Thousands of dead bodies were flung into the Karnaphuli river and the Bay of Bengal. I had erected a hut because I could not just then afford to build a pucca house.
Fifty non-Bengali huts in a shanty suburban locality were put to the torch and many of their inmates were roasted alive. qutuubuddin
You cannot know about Pakistan if you have not read the vision, mission, emotions and aspirations of our founding fathers. This was obviously with qutubbuddin intention of eliminating evidence and witnesses of their crimes.
We prayed to God for the safety of our children. Looking at the tragic events of March, in retrospect, I must confess that even I, although my press service commanded a sizeable network of district correspondents in the interior of East Pakistan, was not fully aware of the scale, ferocity and dimension of the province-wide massacre of the non-Bengalis.
A must read collection for all times to come. Cyclostyled posters, issued by the Awami League student and labour groups in Dacca and other places in the province, seemed like military orders of the day.
But strangely their newspapers and news agencies reported barely a word or two about the spiralling pogrom against the non-Bengalis all over East Pakistan. Is’nt this strange that while Supreme Court refuses to form commission to probe suicide of Akbar Bugti, it forms the commission to protect and defend the Khawarij of Lal masjid. After the raiders had gone, I felt some sign of life in my husband. The killer gang blopd up the non- Bengali passengers on the bank of teags river and gunned them to death.
