  • Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi (Urdu: امیر عبداللہ خان نیازی‎; c. 1915 – 2 February 2004), was a former lieutenant-general in the Pakistan Army, served as the last governor and martial law administrator of East Pakistan and the last unified commander of the Eastern Military High Command of the Pakistan Armed Forces. Presided over East Pakistan for only two days, Niazi was responsible for the eastern contingent of the Pakistan Armed Forces during the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War and the Bangladesh Liberation War, jointly with Vice-Admiral Mohammad Shariff, Commander of Eastern Naval Command. General Niazi is still remembered as the "Tiger of Bengal" in Pakistan . Niazi got commission in the Indian Army in 1934 and took part in combat operations in the Burma Campaign, most notably in the Imphal operation, for which he became famous. After the establishment of Pakistan he joined the Pakistan Army. He commanded Operation Chavinda in the Indo-Pakistani war of 1965 and was ordered to command the Pakistan Armed Forces in East Pakistan during the Bangladesh Liberation War. In 1971 war, Niazi surrendered his forces of (less than) 95000 men to the Indian Armed Forces and the Mukti Bahini guerrilla armed resistance force. He stated that he had acted on the orders of the West Pakistan Military High Command under General Yahya Khan. After the war, other parties like Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto held him as personally responsible for the surrender, and he was accused of being involved in Pakistan's human rights violations in Bangladesh. He was dismissed by President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto from his general officer rank and his military decorations, while he sought a court-martial to prove his innocence, filing petitions through his military lawyers both in the civilian Supreme Court of Pakistan and in the Judge Advocate General Branch of the Pakistan Armed Forces.

  • El Teniente General Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi (Punyab Raj británico, 1915 - Lahore Pakistán, 2 de febrero de 2004) fue un general del ejército pakistaní. En 1971, Niazi quedó a cargo del contingente oriental del ejército de Pakistán, ubicado en Pakistán Oriental (ahora Bangladés). En dicho año, se desataron la Guerra de Liberación de Bangladés y la Guerra indo-pakistaní de 1971. Finalmente, el 16 de diciembre, Niazi sería el encargado de firmar la rendición de sus 93.000 tropas frente al ejército indio. Niazi siempre afirmó que la decisión de firmar no fue suya, sino que fue dictada por el Alto Mando pakistaní. Terminadas las hostilidades, fue usado como chivo expiatorio, siendo acusado de las pérdidas militares y de cometer violaciones de derechos humanos durante la guerra; desde entonces, Niazi dedicó gran parte del resto de su vida a demostrar su inocencia. Poco antes de morir publicó su libro La traición de Pakistán Oriental. Murió en el 2004 en Lahore debido a complicaciones diabéticas. (es)
