    SUMMARY

    On August 28, 1973, India and Pakistan signed an agreement to clear the way for the release of most of the 90,000 Pakistani prisoners held in India and for the settlement of other issues after the war in December 1971. The accord was signed after 19 days of negotiations spread over two months in Islamabad and New Delhi. It also provided a procedure for Pakistani recognition of Bangladesh. On the same day in 1963, Martin Luther King delivered the historic "I Have a Dream" speech which was a call to end racism in the United States. It was delivered in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, during a political rally organized by human and political rights groups. Here are some more historical events that make August 28.
