Attacks by Mulsim League National Guards were responded by Sikhs. The Sikhs maintained a small but efficient army which evenly matched the larger but less disciplined Muslim League National Guards. In Amritsar district alone, by 25 August nearly 100 Muslim villages were attacked by Sikhs while 7 Sikh villages were attacked by Muslims. General TW Rees commented that the organization of Sikhs was superior to the Muslim League National Guards.
