"On this day let us remember the sacrifice of those brave soldiers who died in the line of duty to protect our great nation. Happy Vijay Diwas! Jai Hind!"
The Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 was a military confrontation between India and Pakistan that occurred during the Bangladesh Liberation War in East Pakistan from 3 December 1971 to the fall of Dacca (Dhaka) on 16 December 1971. Indian Army, Navy and Air Force dominated all domains of warfare to compel Pakistani forces to surrender in the shortest time," he added. The IAF conclave was organised to celebrate the Swarnim Vijay Varsh marking the 50th anniversary of the 1971 Indo-Pak war, which led to the liberation of Bangladesh. India supported the secession and, as a guarantee against possible Chinese entrance into the conflict on the side of West Pakistan, it signed with the Soviet Union the Indo-Soviet Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation in August 1971.
India housed and fed almost 10 million Bangladesh refugees from 1971 to 1973, and India's citizens paid a special stamp tax for a number of years to cover the expenses. India's army liberated Bangladesh in December 1971 and forced the surrender of the Pakistani army. It was at this time, that ex-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi decided to end the genocide than to simply give refuge to those who made it across to refugee camps.
In this war, over 3,800 soldiers of India and Pakistan sacrificed their lives to end the genocide Pakistan had been conducting against the Bengali population of East Pakistan.
