The Role of The United Nations In The Indo-Pakistani Conflict, 1971

K.P. Misra

Vikas Publishing House

The utter irrelevance of some of the most important organs of the United Nations, particularly the Security Council, its executive organ, was once again highlighted during the Indo-Pakistani conflict of December 1971 which resulted in the redrawing of the political map of the Indian subcontinent.

On account of lack of unanimity among the permanent members, the Security Council was not able to take any effective action. It was content to look on impotently as the barbarous-hordes of Yahya khan perpetrated untold atrocities which dwarfed similar happenings, including the events in Biafra. But, as has been indicated in this work, the United Nations, or for that matter any other international organization, functions within the limits imposed by the milieu of international politics at any given time. Thus the United Nations does not and, in fact, cannot function in isolation.
