DOMINIQUE LAPIERRE FREEDOM AT MIDNIGHT PDF

On the theme of partition, the book relates that the crucial maps setting the boundary separating India and Pakistan were drawn that year by Cyril Radcliffe , who had not visited India before being appointed as the chairman of the Boundary Commission. It depicts the fury of both Hindus and Muslims , misled by their communal leaders, during the partition, and the biggest mass slaughter in the history of India as millions of people were uprooted by the partition and tried to migrate by train , oxcart, and on foot to new places designated for their particular religious group. Many migrants fell victim to bandits and religious extremists of both dominant religions. One incident quoted describes a canal in Lahore that ran with blood and floating bodies. Also covered in detail are the events leading to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi , as well as the life and motives of British-educated Jawaharlal Nehru and Pakistani leader Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Background[ edit ] The authors interviewed many who were there, including a focus on Lord Mountbatten of Burma.
