Partition Branch Records Vol 1

Description Partition of India following India's independence in August 1947 proved most disastrous for the people of Punjab. There was a mass transfer of population from West Punjab to East Punjab and vice versa on the basis of religion. While Muslims were ordered to migrate to West Punjab, Hindus and Sikhs migrated to East Punjab. But this mass migration was accompanied by large scale communal riots, acts of arson, loot, plunder, molestation and abduction of women on both sides. This volume contains official reports of various government officials at the various tehsil and district headquarters as well as reports of citizens about the communal situation and the resultant loss of life and property. These reports provide a glimpse into the extent and magnitude of communal strife in 1947. There is a sustained pattern of violence on reciprocal basis[edit]
