New Delhi:

Underscoring that ache of Partition can by no means be forgotten, Prime Minister Narendra Modi immediately introduced that August 14 can be noticed as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day, a day earlier than India’s Independence Day.

Pakistan celebrates its Independence Day on August 14.

“Partition’s pains can never be forgotten. Millions of our sisters and brothers were displaced and many lost their lives due to mindless hate and violence. In memory of the struggles and sacrifices of our people, 14th August will be observed as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day,” tweeted PM Modi.

The Prime Minister burdened that the day will function a reminder to maintain the social divisions at bay and strengthen the spirit of oneness.

“May the #PartitionHorrorsRemembranceDay keep reminding us of the need to remove the poison of social divisions, disharmony and further strengthen the spirit of oneness, social harmony and human empowerment,” the PM mentioned in his second tweet.

Post-Partition, as Pakistan was carved out of India, there started mass motion of individuals on each side of the border. Large scale violence was witnessed in Noakhali in West Bengal and Bihar.

Mahatma Gandhi determined to remain put in Noakhali and toured the district in a mission to revive peace and communal concord.

Partition stays a bitter and painful reminiscence within the historical past of the 2 nations.
