PM Narendra Modi declared 14th August as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared 14th August as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’ in memory of the struggle and sacrifice of millions of countrymen during the 1947 Partition. From Today onwards, 14th August is observed as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’. A day before the 75th Indian Independence Day, PM Modi has announced this decision.

During the 1947 partition, the waves of incessant violence have taken many innocent human lives. The estimated death toll is between 2, 50,000 and  2 million.  This partition claimed millions of lives and it is a dark spot in humanity.

Mr Modi said that this day will remind every Indian to remove the poison of social divisions, disharmony. And it also further strengthen the spirit of oneness, social harmony and human empowerment.
