Extracts from "The Hindu" January 11, 1947

Description Partition of India, especially of Punjab in 1947 proved to be very traumatic for the people of Punjab. Following the announcement of India's independence and partition, very violent communal riots broke out between the Muslims and Hindus/Sikhs on both sides of the newly created border. It was followed by large scale acts of loot, arson, abduction and molestation of women on both sides and migration of population. This volume contains press reports about these riots and leader's statements in the leading English newspapers. These documents, taken together, provide authentic information about partition woes and thinking of national and provincial leaders. It is an excellent reference material for researchers of Indian and Punjab history[edit]
