Islamabad, March 19 (KMS): India is fueling its hate for Pakistan into the hearts and minds of Bangladeshi masses through reigniting twisted and fabricated ills of 1971.

A report released by Kashmir Media Service, today, said that it was an established fact that India played its nefarious role in the dismemberment of Pakistan in 1971 as Indian role in arming, training and instigating the Mukti Bahini was the greatest factor in the creation of Bangladesh.

The report pointed out that even Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has admitted that there had been a conspiracy to divide Pakistan. Modi while speaking at a ceremony during his visit to Bangladesh in June 2015 said that the establishment of Bangladesh was a desire of every Indian and that’s why India’s forces fought along with the Mukti Bahini, thus creating a new country. »
