LAHORE, Feb 1: Gen A. K. Niazi (retired) died of a cardiac arrest here at the CMH on Sunday. He was 89. His daughter, Ms Rauf, told Dawn that he had suffered another heart attack some two weeks ago but his condition improved.

On Sunday, he fell ill after breakfast and was taken to the CMH where he breathed his last. Born in 1915 in Mianwali, he took commission in the army in 1942. He was awarded MC in the World War II and Hilal-i-Jurrat in 1965's war against India.

He was commander of the eastern command in the 1971 war and surrendered to Indian Gen Jagjeet Singh Arora in Dhaka. He leaves behind two sons and three daughters.


Just caught this while lazily browsing the net.
Imagine on 26th March 1971, millions would have shivered by mentioning this name. The almighty will deal with everything.

Natural Death is not revenge. There is no satisfaction. Natural death is actually sad and I feel Ehsan's reponse was perfect here.

Somebody ought to kill them - and not necessarily with a bullet!

Hmm that reminds me of a rap lyric

- "Revenge is the sweetest thing next to Pu**y!"

If God wills it, Niazi will have his reckoning on the Day of Judgement. He will answer for his crimes in one way or another.
