Extracts From The File Of Dawn 1947

Description This is a collection of several extracts taken from the records of English daily "Dawn" mainly for the year 1947, the year of India's independence and partition. It contains resolutions by Sikh and Muslim political parties reflecting their stand on partition of Punjab and demarcation of soon to be divided Punjab. These extracts also show the British governments' setting of Boundary commission and the relevant government legislation's passed to deal with the emerging situation. The reader gets a glimpse into the vitiated communal environment, rigid irreconcilable postures of two major communities and resultant violence. These extracts are sort of mirror of turbulent phase in the history of Punjab[edit]
