Partition Riots In Amritsar

A nurse with two child victims of communal violence in Amritsar, Punjab, during the Partition of British India, March 1947. The children's mother was stabbed to death in the riots and they were rescued by a British military patrol and taken to the hosptal for safety. 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.
