The bravery of Indian armed forces unleashed. The 50th birthday of victory over Pakistan.
Who can forget the tremendous victory of India over Pakistan in the 1971 war that led to the creation of Bangladesh? The day, the 16th December in 1971, saw the bent Pakistani armed forces surrendering to India. To all the veer jawan who sacrificed their lives for the nation, we celebrate Vijay Diwas in their remembrance. 16th December, 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of India's victory over Pakistan, the day when Pakistan's Major-General Niazi surrendered with his 93,000 troops before Lt General Jagjit Singh Aurora, then General Officer Commanding-in-Chief of India's Eastern Command. This is hailed as the largest military surrender since World War II. When Pakistan launched air-strikes on the Indian Airforce stations on 3rd December, 1971, India decided to stand by the side of Bangladeshi nationalist groups and launched Operation Trident. The brave men of India targeted the Karachi Port in then West Pakistan. On the eastern flank, Bangladesh's Mukti Bahini guerrillas got associated with Indian forces against Pakistani troops. Finally, on 17th December 1971, the ‘Instrument Of Surrender' was signed by Pakistan Army Major-General Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi to the Indian Army and Bangladesh's Mukti Bahini. And there you go! All the brave hearts of Indian armed forces stood victorious in their mission.
Today, let's salute the strong sons of India on the occasion of Vijay Diwas. The best tribute we can give them is to stand united as a nation, come what may.
