 About Book  About Author 

The book Jenkins and the Partition of Punjab: 1947 is a valuable addition to the exiting literature concerning partition of Punjab. It depicts the crucial role of Jenkins as the last governor of Punjab who till last moment served to his best the interest of British Government though with heavy loss to the Muslim cause. No doubt, the cost paid by Muslims of South Asia for securing freedom was immense but they eventually succeeded to achieve an independent state against all odds. Now Pakistan has a long way to go; its people must have full comprehension of their past, so that they could value independence and work hark hard to improve their present circumstances. This book is the reflection of sacrifices, human tragedies, losses and achievements the Muslims of South Asia experienced in the last days of the British Raj.


Surely, nations progress only when they honor the people who took pains and endanger their lives so their fellow countrymen can be secure and prosper. Almost millions lives were sacrificed at the time of partition on both sides of the border of Punjab. We are indebted to all those who have perished in this struggle for independence, as gratitude it is our duty to teach our children to remember those sacrifices of our forefathers and to respect fellow beings and work hard to make our state strong and prosperous.


Since people on both sides of the border suffered and both had cried and felt an intense pain in this bifurcation of East and West Punjab therefore an objective record of those events such as the current study can help mitigate sorrows of the past and enlighten the future course of relations between the two sides. Respecting each other as close neighbours could help in development of both the states as for the creation of which both have paid heavy prices in the form of human tragedies and material loss.
