Partition Riots In Amritsar

Burned-out and ruined buildings in the Katra Jaimal Singh area of Amritsar after communal violence in the city during the Partition of British India, Punjab, March 1947. Fighting took place between the city's Muslim population (around 50 percent), anxious for Amritsar to be incorporated into Pakistan, and the other, Sikh and Hindu, half of the inhabitants, who supported incorporation with India.
