If there’s a defining event in the Prime Ministership of Indira Gandhi, it is the liberation of East Pakistan in 1971. It was the people of East Pakistan who launched their war of liberation. It was Indira Gandhi who, through immense moral and political support, allowed millions to flee from the brutal oppression by the Pakistan army and find refuge. Seeking a peaceful settlement, she toured the world’s capitals in search of support. And when the world’s powerful nations failed to respond, she was resolute in her response to Pakistan’s aggressive provocations, sending the Indian army to defeat the Pakistan army, and standing up to the might of the US and China, she helped in the birth of the new nation of Bangladesh.
