It was an ethnic cleansing deliberately carried out by the Pakistani troops to get rid of the Hindu minority communities especially Bengali population that mostly settled in eastern Pakistan post partition.

Why wasn't there any international outrage on the Hindu genocide carried out by Pakistan during 1971?
