When Indian-born journalist Salil Tripathi visited Dhaka University’s Jagannath Hall in Bangladesh two years ago, he noticed an epitaph that had “PAKISTANI” etched in bold on a memorial dedicated to students who were killed in the 1971 war of independence.

The word was added later as an afterthought to identify the nationality of the occupying forces, an act of revisiting history that seemed to suggest clarification of a narrative gone wrong.
