An interesting interview of two brothers now living in Pakistan who talk about life at Dhurkot, Ludhiana. Before partition all used to get along. There were melas and religious festivals that everyone participated in and there was no friction among the two communities.
After eruption of violence at Jarahan, Muslims moved to Dhurkot and then on to Ahmedgarh and on to Malerkotla. From Malerkotla they walked to Kasur in about 9 days. After walking about 8 or 9 miles, they would stop for rest. They didn't have much food, whatever they carried with them is all they had to eat.
After coming to Pakistan they are still called Mohajirs.
In the last part of the video, the person said something that has stuck with me. He said there's no division between Muslims and Sikhs and this I have felt while listening to people talking about their experiences in other interviews also. That apart from the violence that was brought on by the charged enviorment of the 1940's, the relationship between Sikhs and Muslims was warm and very close. The key to this was that most of them were Jatts. Both belonged to same Jatt castes, both were hard working and interacted closely when it came to things like agriculture, land transactions and business. From religious point of view, both communities respected each other's antecedents. One would talk about going to Gurdwaras or Mosques, participating in melas and festivals, how everyone was treated the same without any prejudice.
