Partition is not only synonymous with celebration, but also massacre and bloodshed.
Syed Mahmood Hussain, a Partition survivor, shares his experience of witnessing the harrowing mass murder that took take place aboard trains carrying Muslims.
“When the trains would reach Agra, thousands of Muslims would gather around the river. The trains would throw out bodies of Muslims into the river,” he said.
“The trains would then be washed, they would go back, pick up more Muslims on the way and they would be massacred again.”
Hussain recalls burying the dead bodies in good condition, while releasing some in the river. “I have seen the water turn red.”
