Lahore and Marital are two large cities in Punjab but presently, Lahore is in Pakistan and Marital is in India. A few women in Lahore expressed that they did not want to leave their homes just because they did not practice the religion of their new home country. The reason for the partition was different depending on who was asked in the documentary. A few Sikh villagers in Punjab stated that everything was always fine before this talk of partition began, Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs all lived in peace and harmony in a single village.
Although they did not practice the same elision, they had respect for one another. They did not distinguish each other by religion; they all considered themselves to just be Indian. They felt the real religious conflicts were between the upper class and politicians, and these conflicts seemed to be instigated by the British. It was the issues of the politicians that caused the partition, and Hindus and Muslims to turn against each other, even in the villages. On the other hand, a few Muslim men in Dacha, Bangladesh, felt that Hinduism and its multiple gods were not worthy of worship.
They did not think such a religion was valuable or could even compare to Islam. Therefore, they agreed that Hindus and Muslims should be separated to keep the Muslim population away from such an “unworthy’ religion. The text that connected to the most was Bin-e Angina’s poem “Our Country. ” It was about how India and Pakistan had the same people living in both countries. They both had Hindus, Muslims, Shindigs, Punjabi, and Bengali, so What was the point of having two countries if they had almost no difference at all? They should eave never split in the first place. Absolutely agree With this poem. My own grandparents, though Hindu, have to write that they were born in present-day Pakistan because they were born and raised in Lahore. However, they consider themselves to still be Indian. In the documentary. Many Muslims did not want to leave present-day India and many Hindus did not want to leave present. Day Pakistan. They grew up in their neighborhoods, established social networks, and did not want to leave their homes merely due to the fact that the government anted to divide the country by religion.
