Shocking and Rare Images Of Indian Partition

The partition of British Indian Empire in 1947 lead to the biggest population exchange in the history. Around 14.5 million people crossed the borders in between the two newly declared Independent states; Republic of India and Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The price people had to pay for this independence was horrific. More than 500,000 people were brutally murdered, died of hunger or lack of medicines in this ghoulishly historic migration. We have found a rare collection of images taken at the time of Indo-Pak migration which depicts the intense and atrocious tumult mankind suffered. via greatgameindia
