The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has said that in memory of the struggles and sacrifices of our people, 14th August will be observed as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day.

In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister said;

“Partition’s pains can never be forgotten. Millions of our sisters and brothers were displaced and many lost their lives due to mindless hate and violence. In memory of the struggles and sacrifices of our people, 14th August will be observed as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day.

May the #PartitionHorrorsRemembranceDay keep reminding us of the need to remove the poison of social divisions, disharmony and further strengthen the spirit of oneness, social harmony and human empowerment.

देश के बंटवारे के दर्द को कभी भुलाया नहीं जा सकता। नफरत और हिंसा की वजह से हमारे लाखों बहनों और भाइयों को विस्थापित होना पड़ा और अपनी जान तक गंवानी पड़ी। उन लोगों के संघर्ष और बलिदान की याद में 14 अगस्त को ‘विभाजन विभीषिका स्मृति दिवस’ के तौर पर मनाने का निर्णय लिया गया है।

#PartitionHorrorsRemembranceDay का यह दिन हमें भेदभाव, वैमनस्य और दुर्भावना के जहर को खत्म करने के लिए न केवल प्रेरित करेगा, बल्कि इससे एकता, सामाजिक सद्भाव और मानवीय संवेदनाएं भी मजबूत होंगी।”

Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah has welcomed Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s decision to observe 14 August as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’. In his tweet Shri Amit Shah said, “In the memory of the sacrifice and struggle of our innumerable sisters and brothers who were displaced in the shadow of violence and hatred at the time of Partition of the country, Shri Narendra Modi has decided to observe 14th August as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’. I welcome Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for taking this sensitive decision”.

Union Home Minister said, “The wound of the partition of the country and the grief of losing loved ones cannot be described in words. I am sure that ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’ will strengthen peace, love and unity by eliminating the ill-will of discrimination and malice from society”.
