A silent procession led by Federal Minister G Kishan Reddy in the city center and an exhibition of archival photographs capturing the pain and tragedy of the partition was organized by the Ministry of Culture on Sunday, officials said. The procession was held inside Central Park, located in the heart of the Connaught Place area, to mark the anniversary of the Partition Horror.

Before the procession began in the park, a two-minute silence was held in honor of the victims who died or suffered in the Partition tragedy. Union Culture Minister G Kishan Reddy, MoS Culture Arjun Ram Meghwal, Railways Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw and others joined the procession. MoS Culture Meenakshi Lekhi also attended the event later. The procession took place on the inner perimeter of the vast park. Originally, the route was scheduled to end the procession at the National War Memorial, but it was later changed due to some unforeseen circumstances, officials said.

Participants carried placards reading “Partition Horrors Remembrance Day, August 14” to convey the message that we must remember this tragedy and the pain and suffering of hundreds of thousands of people. Reddy later tweeted about the event. Colleagues of the Minister, he was attended by Shri @AshwiniVaishnaw ji, Shri @arjunrammeghwal, Shri @KailashBaytu ji and others. The division of British India into her two independent dominions of India and Pakistan, preceded by massive violence, left huge numbers of people displaced and homeless.

He shared the video with the caption, “The remnants of India’s partition are harrowing reminders of the atrocities committed against our people by individuals with vested interests.
