The government will organize exhibitions on the ‘horrors of Partition’ at major public places like railway stations, airports and malls from August 10 to August 14. The Ministry of Culture has written to the Ministry of Railways to organize such exhibitions in the station premises so that more and more people can see them.
The ministry has also advised that adequate security arrangements should be made for the exhibition. In his Independence Day speech last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced to celebrate 14 August as ‘Bhajan Vibhishika Memorial Day’.
Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Govind Mohan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Railway Board, V.K. In a letter to Tripathi, it is said, ‘Your ministry has a wide reach through various railway stations across the country. Therefore, it has been decided that you can ask the railway stations to display this exhibition at 700 places.’
The exhibition, in English and Hindi, is available in digital format on the website ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’.
