In an interesting development, Afghanistan Vice-President Amrullah Saleh has hit out at Pakistani Twitter trolls by posting the famous picture of Pakistan Army’s surrender to Indian Army in 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War, and said that Afghanistan does not have such a picture in its history and asserted that it won’t have one in the future.

“We don’t have such a picture in our history and won’t ever have,” said Saleh in a tweet, who also headed Afghan intelligence agency National Directorate of Security (NDS) from 2004 to 2010. “Yes, yesterday I flinched for a friction of a second as a rocket flew above & landed few meters away,” the Afghan VP said referring to rocket attacks that took place on Tuesday (20 July) while President Ashraf Ghani and others were offering Namaz on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha at the Presidential palace in Kabul.

We don’t have such a picture in our history and won’t ever have. Yes, yesterday I flinched for a friction of a second as a rocket flew above & landed few meters away. Dear Pak twitter attackers, Talibn & terrorism won’t heal the trauma of this picture. Find other ways. pic.twitter.com/lwm6UyVpoh

“Dear Pak twitter attackers, Talibn & terrorism won’t heal the trauma of this picture. Find other ways,” he said, referring to the Pakistani Army’s surrender picture attached to the tweet.

It should be noted that the famous picture was taken while Pakistan Army Chief Gen Niazi was signing the Instrument of Surrender with Indian Army’s Lieutenant General Jagjit Singh Aurora in Dhaka on 16 December 1971.

India defeated Pakistan in the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War, following which Pakistan Army’s top brass and 93,000 Pakistani soldiers surrendered to the Indian Army.
