From August 10 to August 15, 2022, a plethora of festivities were organized on campus to highlight this historical occasion.

Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is being celebrated with great pomp and show at Amity University Haryana. Remembrance Day – Horrors of Partition being a part of the AzadiKaAmritMahotsav. As the nation completes 75 years of independence, Partition Horrors Remembrance Day is being observed by the entire nation. The event aims to bring to light the agony, pain, and anguish of millions of people who were sufferers from partition. Prime Minister Narendra Modi made the announcement during his speech on August 15, 2021, at D Block Auditorium.


Pro VC Dr. Vikas Madhukar gave the opening remarks. While 6 million Muslims were ejected from India, over 4.5 lac Hindus and Sikhs were compelled to leave Pakistan. About 1 to 2 million people allegedly killed and 10-15 million people were displaced overall. He remarked that for the previous 75 years, this atrocity had been lost to memory as a part of our history. We need to understand that it is a part of our duty as members of the educational community to educate the next generation, he continued. 

The honoree, a nonagenarian who had witnessed the Partition, was welcomed by respected Vice Chancellor P. B. Sharma. We respect the "Har Ghar Tiranga" appeal issued by our Prime Minister Narendra Modiji, he said. "It is time to repay our vow," said Jawaharlal Nehru, our first prime minister. He singled out the names of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru, and Bhadrashekhar Azad, as well as Subhash Chander Bose, who founded the "Azad Hind Fauj." He remembered the atrocities that occurred during the split, which resulted in a significant population shift. He claims that the formation of a new nation was influenced by religious allegiance. This religious hostility was started by the educated elite, and as a result of their own self-interest, the regular people followed. He made particular notice of the poet Mohammad Iqbal, who had originally authored the book Tarane Hind (which has the line "Sare Jahan Se achha HindostanHamara") but later modified it to read "chino arabhamara...muslimhain hum." On this Remembrance Day he asked the audience to uphold the dignity and honour of our motherland that is blessed with a vedic spiritual civilization. We should be proud of the fact that we all are Indians and we belong to a multi-cultural country like India, he said.


By turbaning Rati Rati Ram ji and giving him a scarf and souvenir, he was honoured. He had seen the partition of India while fighting for liberation from British control as a gunner in the Indian Army in 1952. Maj Gen G S Bal made a presentation on the 'Partition Horrors' titled "Recreating the past for a better future". According to him, we cannot live and coexists with neighboring countries with old baggage on our conscience. We should learn from the past and try to improve the future. He discusses the factors that led to the partition, including the selection of the Border Council, the Radcliffe or Bloody line, the elections for the Provisional Government, and the roles played by the Muslim League and Indian National Congress. He recalled the episode of the hamlet Tahoha Khalsa, where 90 women committed themselves to avoid being kidnapped and raped, in order to highlight the atrocities endured by women and children. Since we cannot select our neighbours, he continued, we must work to sustain good neighbourly ties in order for both countries to advance. "We need to learn from the past and politely handle the current concerns with our neighbours," he said in his closing statement.

Rati Ram ji was congratulated by Maj Gen P K Sharma for making such a big effort to attend the event despite his advanced age. He was grateful for Dr. Ranjana Kothari's and the organising team's efforts in running the backstage. At the Main Entrance of the "D" Block Foyer, a march with about 400 participants got under way. National flags floated as the chants "VandeMatram" and "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" filled the air. At Campus Plaza, the demonstration ultimately came to an end.


A poster exhibition on display boards, show casing the Remembrance Day Horrors was set up by DSW department. The exhibition aimed to impart information and knowledge relating to one of the biggest catastrophes that befell mankind in the Indian subcontinent.
