The Partition of British India in 1947 created two independent nation-states of India and Pakistan, followed by one of the cruelest, bloodiest and ethnic cleansing in history. The religious fury and violence caused the death of around 2 million people and maimed in the equal numbers. Through an estimated it was found that 12-15 millions were compelled through coercive measure to leave their home and hearth, near and dear ones, all their belongings in both countries. At least 75000 women were raped, dishonored and brutally murdered and their infants and fetuses were pitched on pegs. The riots and pogroms which followed Partition were most harrowing in Punjab and effectively led to the first successful post-war experiment of ethnic cleansing in the world. At that critical moment the Sikhs at the behest of All India Congress cadres became vicious killers.
