In Response To: Jindan Kaur of Cheechon-ke-Malian (KI Bajwa)

The 1947 Indo-Pak subcontinent saw the most massive exodus in history. Millions of people moved from one side to the other under dire circumstances, some in trains but most on foot and bullock carts in scorching sun. Looting, killing, rapes and kidnapping occurred on a mega scale. Muslims lost many more lives at the hands of Sikhs and Hindus while Hindus lost more property.

Besides reading history books, I have heard countless atrocious eye-witness accounts from my elders. Man had become a predator beast of the jungle.

Top Hindu, Sikh, Muslim leaders had failed to anticipate and prevent the blood bath. I lost my young grandparents and 7 uncles just before I was born (on 14 Aug 1947).
