The ‘Joint Indo-Pak Peace and Goodwill’ delegation submitted a petition to the government demanding the construction of memorials at both the Pakistan and India borders to honour the people killed during the partition. According to the petition, millions of people suffered losses on both sides of the border during the partition. Thousands of Hindu, Muslim and Sikh men, women and children died and those who survived were forever scarred, it stated adding, the bitterness of that period has blighted relations between the two countries for more than five decades.
