Description

The tract of the territory now comprising Punjab, Haryana, Himachal, (India) and the Punjab (Pakistan) occupied a position of profound importance. It was on the highway between the nomad breeding grounds of Central Asia and rich and fertile valley of the Ganges, It had, therefore, been the arena of religious, social and political conflicts like Palestine in the Middle East and Belgium in Europe. Its climate bred a hardy and martial people. At the time of transfer of power to Indian hands in 1947 it was the only province ruled by its governor under section 93 of the Government of India Act of 1935. Again only in the Punjab was the transfer of power followed by bloodshed and mass migrations.

The scope of the present work is limited to study of documents pertaining to the genesis of the idea of partition of Punjab (Vide Introduction also), formulation of the Partition Plan, its implementation and the aftermath of partition of Punjab.

The partition of the Punjab is a unique event because it was followed by a large scale mass migrations unprecedented in the history of mankind. I spent a number of years in studying its various aspects-the book on Calcutta riots of 1946 was published by Khalsa College, Amritsar (1957), another on anecdotes of communal riots 1947by the Chief Khalsa Dewan, Amritsar (1964), still another, an edited work, on recovery of abducted women by Khalsa Samachar, Amritsar (1959). The Punjab University, Chandigarh awarded me PhD degree in 1966 and the Punjabi University, Patiala published my PhD thesis entitled Partition of Punjab 1947 in 1972. This project was approved by Indian Council of Historical research in 1980. But I could devote more time to it when I shifted to Chandigarh in 1986 after my retirement.
