Lieutenant General Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi HJ, MC (1915 - 2 February 2004), was a general officer of the Pakistan Army. In 1971, as a Lieutenant General, Niazi was in charge of Eastern contingent of the Pakistani Army during the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War. Born to a family in the Punjab province, India, Niazi enlisted in the Indian Army as a junior officer, and fought well during World War II. During this conflict, the young Niazi would win a Military Cross and be given the nickname "Tiger" by his superior officer due to his prowess in battle against Japanese forces.

The whole East Pakistan war was lost due to lack of higher direction of war, unable to take advantage of emerging newer tactical scenarios and adjusting his troops accordingly

The whole East Pakistan war was lost due to lack of higher direction of war, unable to take advantage of emerging newer tactical scenarios and adjusting his troops accordingly. He was not mentally robust and simply bamboozled by the situation becoming inactive to intervene and prevail to influence any out come. He had no idea about the psychological warfare and its impact. He authroized expulsion of all the correspondents from East Pakistan, who afterwards mostly echoed Indian version. Never led any operations for moral boosting of the troops in the field.

The 1971 war and the creation of Bangladesh were events that would irrevocably change the destiny of not just three nations but nearly a fifth of humanity. There have been many versions and interpretations of the Bangladesh War but now comes perhaps the most controversial, Lt-General . Niazi's The Betrayal of East Pakistan (Rs 450, Pages 320, Oxford University Press, PO Box 13033, Karachi, Pakistan)

Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi (Urdu: امیر عبداللہ خان نیازی; b. 1915–1 February 2004), MC, popularly known as .

Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi (Urdu: امیر عبداللہ خان نیازی; b. Niazi or General Niazi was a former lieutenant-general in the Pakistan Army and the last Governor of East Pakistan, known for commanding the Eastern Command of Pakistani military in East Pakistan during the third war with India until surrendering on 16 December 1971 to Lieutenant General Jagjit Singh of the Eastern Command of the Indian Army.

Lieutenant-General A A K Niazi, Martial Law Adminisator of East Pakistan, surrendered to Lieutenant General . Gen A. A. K. Niazi, Commanding Officer of Pakistan Army forces signing the instrument of surrender on 16 December 1971.

Lieutenant-General A A K Niazi, Martial Law Adminisator of East Pakistan, surrendered to Lieutenant General Jagjit Singh Aurora, Joint Commander of the Bangladesh-India Allied Forces. Air Commodore A. Khandker, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Bangladesh Armed Forces, and Lieutenant General J F R Jacob of the Indian Eastern Command, acted as witnesses to the surrender.

In December 1971, one of Pakistan's most decorated offficers, Lt.-Gen. A.A.K. Niazi, laid down arms before the invading Indian army, leading to the dismemberment of Pakistan. Was `Tiger' Niazi a coward, a hero, or the victim of an unjust fate? In this candid account General Niazi breaks 26years of silence and volunteers his own version of the events of that fateful year.
  • Betrayal of East Pakistan by Gen. Niazi is a narrative book that sheds some light on the subsequent events that led to the shameful surrender of Pakistani troops. There is no doubt that the fall of Dhaka was a conspiracy by leaders like "Bhutto Shaheed", and "Gen. Yayah Khan" etc. These are the leaders who have raped this great country over and over again and for some reason we Pakistani still celebrates their birthdays. Generals in Pakistan are "King Makers," and Gen. Niazi, being a senior officer, was surely in a position to influence the thought process of GHQ. He was also in the position, from his own narration, to prolong the war or even conduct guerrilla warfare til "the last man, last bullet". However, he chose to obey the very same people those were drunkards and corrupts. Niazi quotes Erwin Romell and other great generals but forgot the motto of a soldier, i.e. "Death before disgrace". We not only lost East Pakistan but also lost the dignity and pride as a nation. In conclusion, I agree with Niazi that he was made a scapegoat and a persona of disgrace, but to some degree he was liable for what had transpired in East Pakistan and is inexcusable by any account.

  • It was inconceivable how Niazi was trying to shift his part of the responsibility on to others through far-fetched excuses. The book had serious lack of fact. It was more like a fruitless attempt by an old and broken soldier to restore some sort of dignity. Niazi's legacy is too thick to change by a book just like Hitler, Stalin and PolPot. "In the pages of history the legacy of Mr. Niazi will always be as a Pakistani General who lead a bloody war in 1971; under his command 3 million innocent civilian people were killed by his troop, including women and children. 27,000 women were raped and not to mention the mounting amount of intentional destruction. At the end, he lost; bringing an ultimate defeat for his nation-Pakistan!"

  • In this book, General Niazi attempts to hide the fact that it was his cowardice that cost the secession of East Pakistan. Niazi is the same soldier who saluted the Indian Army Chief while surrendering in the former East Pakistan.He should have fought and died like a true soldier, not given up against a bitter enemy.
    While many perceive Tikka Khan's tactics as harsh, they must remember that realistically, this was the only option Pakistan had to maintain its territorial integrity.This was all a political issue, and once the politicians failed to resolve it, they sent the military in to do the job.When General Tikka Khan was sent to East Pakistan, things were totally out of hand,and some drastic steps had to be taken.If you look at the orders given to Tikka by the General Headquarters in West Pakistan, they clearly stated that he must try to do everything in his power to bring order back to East Pakistan.
    The fact is that General Tikka and the Pakistan Army were left with no choice but to take harsh actions against the anti-Pakistan elements (just like any country would), who in this case were the Mukti Bahini terrorists and their Indian supporters. Make no mistake, India supported the Mukti Bahini terrorists by providing arms to them and training them and also helping them infiltrate into East Pakistani territory.In this effort, the USSR also helped India while the U.S. just watched as one of its allies was cut in half by the the Soviets.Read Richard Nixon's memoirs and he clearly asks whether the U.S. policy should have been different and one that would have supported Pakistan in this war because the USSR was anti-Pakistan because of Pakistan's close relationship with the U.S.
    It is interesting that Niazi blames Tikka for the loss of East Pakistan and calls him incompetent (which is a ridiculous claim because of Tikka's successes in the 1965 Indo-Pak conflict, especially in the region of Rann of Kutch and the brilliantly orchestrated defense of the Pakistani city of Sialkot. Tikka was greatly respected by his juniors and colleagues)
    This book is biased, and Niazi attempts to divert attention from his own mistakes and blunders.General Tikka was clearly a patriot who sacrificed a great deal for Pakistan,a nd endangered his life on many occasions for the sake of his motherland.He was a distinguished soldier of the Pakistan Army, and although civilians were killed in East Pakistan, this was not the intention of General Tikka. Tikka never ordered the rape or massacre of anyone, although some individual soldiers of the Pakistan army committed crimes against humanity, and many of them were later court martialled and punished.The figureof 3 million dead people is a farce,the death count was far lower than this, and many people who died in a devastating 1970 hurricane were also included as casualties of war to inflate the figure.
    Make no mistake, this was a conspiracy against Pakistan, to destroy Pakistan, and to kill its people.The people of Pakistan were divided, and the enemy succeeded in sowing the seeds of hatred amongst them.Those who were once brothers turned against each other and massacred each other.The enemy won because the people of Pakistan were divided. Let this be a lesson for future generations of Pakistanis.Let this not happen again.

  • In 1971 I was in "East Pakistan", when it all happened.I witnessed Unspeakable atrocities committed by the Self-Proclaimed "Heroic, Best Army in the world", throughout the whole year.Although Niazi did admit Tikka Khan Committed Horrible Killings, He himself tried to portray a Saintly image of himself.He ordered his troops to spread to the farthest corners of the land and carry out barbaric killings and rape on innocent civilians.Who does he think he is fooling, with his lies! He is an old man now, and instead of trying to atone for his terrible sins, with his Creator, he is trying spread lies. I pray to GOd Almighty everyday, that The people responsible for The HOLOCAUST in Bangladesh(Living Or Dead)(Eg. Yahyah Khan, Niazi, Tikka Khan, The "Brave Paki Soldiers" and many others)Feel His Terrible Wrath in this Life and in the Hereafter.Just like many of the Nazis were brought to Justice(and are still being hunted)by the Israelis, these animals(If Still Alive)must be brought to Justice By Bengalis and World tribunal.I really admire the Israelis for their Determination and Tenacity.We have a lot to learn from them.Maybe we could ask them to help us catch these Mass Murderers.JOY BANGLA!
