One of the Excellent book which also clearly tell the other side of the story.Hamood ur rehman commision was a government publication and he was never allowed to Court martial to get the truth.
bhutto and others are also responsible for the seperation.Anyway it was good that we get rid of Bangla as it was already difficult to manage.
