Rapid atrocity

Pakistan originally was West and East Pakistan...In December 1971, the east broke free in the Bangladesh Liberation war. The war lasted two weeks, and triggered the second Indo-Pakistan war, during the same time frame. The wars were caused by ethnic and religious tensions...they lasted just two weeks, and Bangladesh was born. The Pakistani surrender was the largest POW surrender since World War Two- over 100,000 Pakistani soldiers laid down their arms. During the two week long conflict, the Pakistanis murdered up to 3 million Bengali's living in what would become Bangladesh, and 200,000 women were raped.
