Pakistan: War Memories
Brigadier (ret.) Abdul Rafiq Khan Burki is secretary general of the Pakistan
Red Crescent Society. In 1971, during the Indo-Pakistan war,
he was arrested as a military medical officer and detained
in an Indian prison. It was there that he encountered ICRC
delegates for the first time. The concern shown by the delegates
for the plight of the wounded and prisoners of war made such
a strong impression on him that on his retirement from the
military he accepted a position with the Pakistan Red Crescent
Society. By focusing on its secretary general, this film also
illustrates the activities of Pakistan's National Society.
Running time: 10 minutes. Available from the ICRC in French,
