You cannot but marvel at the sheer stupidity of Radcliffe, to have given Kartarpur to Pakistan.

A town founded by Guru Nanak and housing his final resting place, it is JUST 4 kms from the Indian border. The fool could so easily have swapped it with some other land. VILE.
Kartarpur Sahib. Just 4 km from the border. That one decision of Radcliffe deprived millions of Indians a darshan of the holiest of Sikh shrines. They worship it through binoculars now.

Could have taken an equivalent area of Rajasthan, Punjab, Kashmir, you name it. What a crime.
Radcliffe had never even visited India before he was commissioned to draw up the partition line. Amritsar would have gone to Pakistan as well but for Lord Wavell's timely intervention. He gave away Lahore because, "I had given you Indians Calcutta".

Cowboys playing with lives.
