A piece of Archive!

I found this clip in the newspaper while scanning some Archive Files…. Its appeared in the Daily News Pakistan om 4th of April 1975. Which means that this news clip appeared after Bangladesh had appeared on the World Map in 1971 and Pakistan had been defeated in the War terribly and had almost 93000 POW in Indian Camps. 

The POW’s finally came home as a result of the deliberation between Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Indira Gandhi which ultimately took a tangible form in the year 1972 in the shape of the Simla Agreement. 

I guess it took another 3 years before all the POW’s reached their families and loved ones!
