President Gen Ayub Khan and Lal Bahadur Shastri ( 1965 )

Lal Bahadur Shastri 's little known repartee to President Gen . Ayub Khan of Pakistan.

Gen Ayub was a hurly burly , Sandhurst trained Pathan. Ayub Khan used to feel very superior to Lal Bahadur Shastri Ji 's height.

Lal Bahadur Shastri ( around Indo- Pak War of 1965 ) -

"Gen Ayub Khan Kahate Hein Ki Yeh Hindustani Kya Ladengey. Yeh Log To Dhoti Pehentey Hain. 

"Mein Ayub Khan Ko Kehta Hoon - Phir Kya Agar Hum Dhoti Pehentey Hain. MERE JARNAIL TO PATLOON DALATEY HAIN. 


In some ways , President General Ayub Khan was very foresighted . In 1959 Gen. Ayub had proposed a joint Pakistan - India Defence Pact AGAINST CHINA !!!.

Such a move is , now , required for Afghanistan.

No Western Power , USSR ( Russia ) or USA would have dare moved into Afghanistan had India not been Partitioned (1947
