interesting stuff maps showing different religions just before partition. We are lucky we got what we got! most of majha and doba was muslim majority at the time! even in amritsar and tarn taran the sikh/hindu combined population was just about higher than the muslim population. if it wasnt for amritsar and tarn taran having less muslims, perhaps the whole of majha and doaba would of gone to pakistan? Amritsar/tarn taran were like a hindu/sikh enclave surrounded by muslim majority areas. I think hadn't it been for amritsar half of present day east punjab would of been in pakistan. malwa on the other hand was the sikh strong hold with sikhs making majority of the population in most areas of malwa, with hindus making the biggest population in ludhiana, moga, mukhtsar etc judging by these maps a lot more muslims were left on the wrong side of the border than Sikhs/hindus were how did sikhi spread like that in malwa? i know that Guru Gobind Singhji spent a lot of time there ...
