"It's unlikely that the Field Marshal's exploits were part of his school curriculum, but with a politician's unfailing eye for the telling gesture, the Democratic Presidential candidate on Monday released a statement condoling Manekshaw's death, describing him as "a legendary soldier, a patriot, and an inspiration to his fellow citizens."
"Field Marshal Manekshaw provided an example of personal bravery, self-sacrifice, and steadfast devotion to duty that began before India's independence, and will deservedly be remembered far into the future," Obama said, offering "deep condolences to the people of India. "

I think it is difficult for Pakistanis that great generals, having performed par excellence can remain generals without effecting a coup. Why else would somebody come here and curse him after he died!
May be I shouldn't generalize to all Pakistanis and target it to only the idiots who do that

You see! Mukti Bahini, Indira and Manekshaw are treated in Pakistan just like you as an Indian would treat Sant Bhindranwalay, Punjabi separatist movement, and may be Zial huq. If you perceive someone trying to break your country, you won't garland them with flowers won't you!
You should appreciate that many Pakistani with good grasp of Military history are only saying good words for Sam.

^ I see what you mean but do you really think Manekshaw was responsible for 'attack on E.Pakistan' (or are you saying the haters feel that way)?
There is no comparison at any level between Bhindranwalay who I think was a Khalistan separatist and Manekshaw who was a regular army commander. Don't much about what Zia did (except he was a supporter of islamic fanatics and was blown up by his own people), so won't comment on that.

A soldier is a soldier on whichever side. Many senior and retired officers of Pak army respect their counterparts on Indian side and especially old-world colleagues such as Manekshaw.
