I am sorry in my opinion the Bangladesh govt. espcially Awami League should apology against 1971 war for killing of thousands of innocent Pakistanis who were settled permnently in East Pakistan whose service towards development in East Pakistan can always been recognized like in East Pakistan Railways, Telegraphs, post office,civil engineering, construction and developed the country with hert and soul but due to 1971 debacle they left everything even properties in capital of Dhaka, industries, in many area and still some are living in 66 camps. and according to study it was political problems and took support of neighbours as a killing of thousand of paksitanis and the action aginst our Army can be justifiedi
