New Delhi: Partition of the country is considered one of the saddest events in history. It was not just the sharing of two countries but also the distribution of homes, families, relationships, and feelings. The fate of the people changed overnight. If someone is homeless, someone is bitten by the sword of hate. If someone’s brother went across the border, someone left his family and moved towards it. A night before, people from two communities living like brothers suddenly became enemies, and this partition dug a hatred of hatred in the hearts of the people of both communities, which no attempt to bridge has been successful to date.
In that sad history of Partition, the day of June 15 is important because Congress approved the proposal for partition in its session held in New Delhi on June 14-15 in 1947. Under the guise of independence, the British left a wound that never filled India. See some more events that took place on June 15 in the history of the country…
