The partition of India in 1947 promised its people both political and religious freedom. This book examines the context, execution and aftermath of partition, integrating an incisive knowledge of political manoeuvres with an understanding of their fundamental social and cultural consequences. The author exposes the widespread obliviousness to what Partition would entail in practice and how it would affect the populace. Drawing together fresh information from an array of sources, the book underscores the catastrophic human cost and shows why the repercussions of Partition resound even now, some sixty years later.
