KARACHI: Historian and political economist Dr S. Akbar Zaidi has dispelled ‘the victory myth’ of 1965 war and claimed that there can be no bigger lie that Pakistan won the war, reported Dawn.
“With the celebration of the victory in the 1965 war round the corner, there can be no bigger lie that Pakistan won the war. We lost terribly in the 1965 war.” He said.
While addressing at an event organized by Faculty of Social Sciences at the Institute of Business Administration, Karachi, he said, people are unaware of this fact because the history that is taught in Pakistan is from an ideological viewpoint, said Dr Zaidi during his thought-provoking lecture titled ‘Questioning Pakistan’s history’.
“Students are not taught the history of the people of Pakistan rather it is focused on the making of Pakistan,” he said.
