KARACHI: Pakistan "lost terribly in the 1965 war" with India, a Pakistani historian has admitted.
Dispelling "the victory myth", historian and political economist Akbar S Zaidi said there cannot be a bigger lie as Pakistan had lost terribly, Dawn reported on Saturday. Zaidi said people are unaware of this fact because the history taught in Pakistan is from an ideological viewpoint. Zaidi said, "Students are not taught the history of the people of Pakistan. Rather it is focused on the making of Pakistan."
Zaidi, who teaches history at the Institute of Business Administration, Karachi, added, "With the celebration of the victory in the 1965 war round the corner, there can be no bigger a lie that Pakistan won the war. We lost terribly in the 1965 war," he said.
At least one Paki has the courage to admit it.
Truth always prevails you can never conceal the truth pakistan lost 1965 war and that terribly and goes on teaching its students it had won
Thank god that there is still somebody left in Pakistan talking sense.Govt propaganda has brainwashed at least 4 generations with false propaganda so much that they believe it to be true.
Pakistan will soon get destroyed by its own nukes triggered by its own terrorists. It will take 20 years after that destruction for any living thing to raise there again.
Finally an honest Pak historian. How much longer could Pakistan hide it lost in"65 war??
India is culturely progressive society.we should not linger with past victories rather learn from past losses.and progess to create history.
Pakis will continue to lost future wars with India and humilated again in front of the world
Why should we worry if Pakistan continues to live in a fools Paradise, we should simply focus on getting developed and strong nation.
he is in real sense a historian because historians are supposed the found out true history
To gain independence in 1947 we have lost a part of our country... which u call Pakistan now. So don't harp about the 1965 war.
It took only 50 years to set right a historical misconception.Hats off to this historian.
Beggars dont know the real facts , Paksitan Doesn't have guts to face Indian Army in war & came up with Terrorist and trying to reach indian border to get killed one or other day.
