Thr Sikh Memorandum to Punjab Boundary Commision

Description India's simultaneous independence and partition proved extremely traumatic for the Sikhs. While the major minority the Muslim got a separate country of Pakistan for themselves, the Sikhs had to cast their lot with the majority community, the Hindus and be a part of India. Their dream and efforts for an independent Sikh state were shattered. But the Sikhs had made concerted and sincere efforts to carve out a sovereign state for themselves. This becomes evident from the Memorandum contains arguments based on Sikh history, distinctiveness of Sikh religion, culture and territorial claims. It also contains reliable statistics about Sikh population, contiguity of Sikh pockets and an outline map of a possible viable Sikh state. The memorandum makes a strong case for a Sikh homeland.[edit]
