RELIGIOUS FANATICISM in Khushwant Singh's “Train to Pakistan”

Download Paper


Khushwant Singh through religious fanaticism highlights the trauma of Nooran, the daughter of a blind Muslim weaver who had an affair with Jugga a Hindu boy. Their affair paradoxically keeps the village at peace, because the local Sikhs are terrified of him, and the girl he loves is the daughter of the local Muslim leader for whom, at any rate, they have a good deal of sympathy. Their potentially dangerous relationship function to keep Mano Majra at peace until the outside world interviews and Nooran is forced to leave Mano Majra. The situation only gets out of control by an unscheduled train which stops at the station and is full of dead people. Mano Majra, the peaceful village known for its serenity and brotherhood among Hindus and Muslims becomes a battlefield. When a train arrives carrying the bodies of the dead Sikhs, tension prevails, neither the magistrate nor the police are able to stem the rising tide of violence.
