Betrayal Of The Sikhs

Description The Sikhs, despite their highest number of sacrifices for the independence of India from the British rule, were the worst victims of India's independence and simultaneous partition of India. The cabinet mission was appointed by the British government led by Prime Minister Atlee to make recommendations for the transfer of power, and proposed constitution of India in 1946. This mission while accepting the views of the Hindus and the Muslims completely ignored the Sikh sentiments and sought to club the Sikhs with the majority Muslim part of India. Thus, the cabinet Mission made a grave injustice to the Sikhs despite their complete loyalty and service to the British during the British rule. This book written by a 'non-official' Britisher brings out the treacherous betrayal of the British government towards the Sikhs. He blames the British for the injustice done to the Sikhs while conceding the Muslim demand for a separate state. Tracing the history of the Sikhs and their unconditional service and loyalty to the British, he calls the British government as ungrateful and insensitive. He also warns about tragic consequences of this betrayal and injustice to the Sikhs. He also criticizes the sections of Hindu, Muslim and Sikh leadership for their bungling[edit]
