Highlights

  • Resolution introduced in US Parliament against Pakistan
  • In Bangladesh in 1971, the Pakistani army killed lakhs of people.
  • Request to declare the atrocities of the Pakistani army as genocide

America News: Two influential US lawmakers have introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives urging US President Joe Biden to call the atrocities committed by Pakistani armed forces against ethnic Bengalis and Hindus in 1971 as genocide. Indian-American Congressman Ro Khanna and lawmaker Siev Chabot introduced the resolution in the House of Representatives on Friday. It also asked the government of Pakistan to apologize to the people of Bangladesh for its role in such a massacre. Republican lawmaker Chabot tweeted, “We must not forget the millions who died in the massacre, even years later. Admitting to genocide strengthens the historical record, makes our fellow Americans aware and at the same time lets future conspirators know that such crimes will not be spared or forgotten.

1971 genocide of Bangladesh

“The 1971 Bangladesh genocide should not be forgotten. With the help of my Hindu colleague Ro Khanna from Ohio’s First District, I have moved this resolution to term the widespread atrocities against Bengalis and Hindus as genocide.”

80 percent of the dead were Hindus

Khanna said that there was genocide in Bangladesh in 1971 and lakhs of people were killed. He said that 80 per cent of those lakhs of dead were Hindus. The Bangladeshi community has welcomed the proposal.
