Bangladesh genocide is the only genocide in modern times that resulted from a policy of deliberate containment of the democratic aspirations of its people. Other genocides have resulted from immediate racial, religious, linguistic or ethnic animosities. No such animosity could be found, at least overtly, on the part of the 9West) Pakistanis against the Bengalis. In the case of Bangladesh, what mattered most was the refusal of the Pakistan military to accept the verdict of 1970 general election and handover power to a democratically elected political party from the eastern wing of Pakistan.

Fault Lines is the first anthology containing stories from Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, the United States and the United Kingdom on the theme of 1971. There is a lot of creative writing that has emerged from 1971, but most of it in regional languages. This anthology, by putting together stories originally written in Bangla, Urdu, Sindhi or Punjabi, in addition to a handful originally written in English, attempts to bridge the language barrier. The breakup of Pakistan and the emergence of Bangladesh were attended by violence and bloodshed.

Emergence of Bangladesh in 1971 was a unique event in the history of South Asia. This book reflects a Bengali soldiers’ perspective of the War. The author was an officer in the Medical Corps of the Pakistan Army in 1971 when the people of Bangladesh became a target of atrocities committed by the Pakistan Army. He writes about the dilemma of a Bengali soldier at the initial stages of the liberation struggle in the face of the Pakistan Army onslaught on the unarmed people of East Pakistan.
