Thousand My Lais - World Bank Study on Bangla Desh
The human tragedy that occurred in a small hamlet known as MyLai in South Vietnam is now being repeated in a whole country and upon a whole nation. A thousand MyLais are being perpetrated in Bangladesh every day, by the marauding trigger-happy gunmen from West Pakistan.
On the conclusion of an extensive study tour of Bangladesh, ten representatives of the World Bank submitted a joint report recommending an immediate suspension of aid to West Pakistan. Before dealing with the official report of the World Bank mission, the reader may find great interest in the observations of Mr. Hendrik Van der Heijden, Economist, Pakistan Division, IBRD.
