Pakistan celebrates 14 August 1947 as independence. In the same country, there are many people who still have the wounds of partition on their hearts. At the time of partition, lakhs of people had left their homes and families and came to India.

Muhammad Ali Jinnah is believed to be the main reason for the partition. The population of British India before 1947 was about 570 million. After partition India had 370 million population. 170 million were in Pakistan and 30 million were in East Pakistan. East Pakistan which is now Bangladesh.
During the partition in 1947, lakhs of people were killed. There were also millions of people who had become refugees in their own country. People were running away from their homes. The homes of millions of people were demolished.
