India celebrates Vijay Diwas : 16 December



Vijay Diwas is celebrated on December 16 every year to commemorate India’s victory over Pakistan in 1971.

Vijay Diwas is indeed a Day for Remembrance of our brave soldiers and ‘Mukti Joddhas’ who sacrificed their lives for a noble cause.

The Indo-Pakistan war of 1971 which began on December 3 lasted for 13 days and officially ended on December 16, after which Pakistan surrendered to India.

It was on this day in 1971, the chief of the Pakistani forces, General AA Khan Niazi, along with 93 thousand troops, had surrendered unconditionally to the allied forces consisting of Indian Army and Mukti Bahini.

The end of the war also resulted in subsequent secession of East Pakistan into Bangladesh.
