Revisiting the course of Pakistan History and Secession of East Pakistan: A System Analysis (1947-1971)
Pakistan has been much larger as being United but the division of United Pakistan into East Pakistan as Bangladesh and West Pakistan into the contemporary Pakistan weakened the geographical leverage of Pakistan. The key cause of East Pakistan ‘s disintegration was the exploitation and deprivation by the West Pakistani government of the East Pakistani masses and leadership, the extraction of resources from East Pakistan, and the biased allocation of resources with respect to East and West Pakistan. It was a failure of the distributive and responsive capacity of the government as it had failed to equally distribute the resources among the two unique wings of Pakistan. Further responsive capability failed to meet the demands and needs of the masses and to carry on exploiting the historically oppressed class. Simple infrastructure was lacking in Pakistan s Eastern wing, which became the cause of their protest against the hegemony of West Pakistan, eventually resulting in the collapse of Dhaka in the form of the 1971 December 16 incident. All of the mentioned factors resulted in an east-west session from mainland Pakistan (Western Pakistan).
