Author Description

Dr. Akhtar Sandhu identifies many reasons for the Sikh failure, chief among them was that Akali leadership failed to have a realistic look at the situation and come to an agreement on what would be achievable under the prevailing circumstances. Sikhs were not in a majority in any area of Punjab and were not a party to negotiations at the all India level. Dr. Sandhu enlightens the reader on how the repeated threats of violence by the Akali Dal to prevent partition led to a breakdown of trust with both the British and Muslim League. The sure way to avoid the partition of Punjab necessitated negotiations with Muslim League being the sole representative of the majority community of Punjab. Negotiations with all stakeholders would have presented the limits of the alternative options which were available.
