India marks December 16th each year as Vijay Diwas, a solemn occasion that signifies a crucial chapter in the nation’s historyβ€”the triumph over Pakistan in the 1971 war, which led to the birth of Bangladesh. This day serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made and the courage displayed by the soldiers who played a pivotal role in this historic event.

Here is all you should know about the Vijay Diwas:

The India-Pakistan war over the then East Pakistan started on December 3, 1971, spanning 13 days and culminating in the surrender of Pakistan’s eastern command to the joint forces of India and Bangladesh. This decisive moment resulted in the liberation of East Pakistan, now known as Bangladesh, establishing it as an independent nation.

The surrender, which took place on December 16, 1971, involved the then Pakistani Lieutenant General A.A.K. Niazi submitting to the Indian Army, leading to the signing of the historic Instrument of Surrender at Dhaka. The Indian military, under the leadership of General Sam Manekshaw, played a commendable role in providing strategic direction, ensuring victory alongside the Mukti Bahiniβ€”Bangladeshi freedom fighters.

Beyond the military achievements, the 1971 war prompted a significant humanitarian crisis, with millions of refugees seeking refuge in India due to the conflict and atrocities. This war not only reshaped regional geopolitics but also underscored the importance of upholding human rights during conflicts.

Vijay Diwas is not merely a day of celebration; it is a day to honor the courage, sacrifice, and bravery of the soldiers who fought and to pay tribute to the martyrs. Ceremonies, parades, wreath-laying, and various events are organized across India, particularly in Delhi and Kolkata, to commemorate this significant day.

The victory in the 1971 war holds a special place in Indian military history, strengthening the nation’s position in the region. As we observe Vijay Diwas, let us reflect on the historical significance of this day and express gratitude to the valiant soldiers who contributed to the triumph that shaped the course of history.Here are some wishes and quotes you can share on whatsapp and social media
