NEW DELHI: On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tribute to all those who died during the partition and praised the tenacity and resiliency of those who endured suffering during that terrible time in history.

In honour of the difficulties and sacrifices made by people, Prime Minister Modi declared August 14 to be celebrated as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day last year.

"Today, on Partition Horrors Remembrance Day, I pay homage to all those who lost their lives during Partition, and applaud the resilience as well as grit of all those who suffered during that tragic period of our history," Modi said in a tweet.

Pakistan was carved out as a separate country after the division of India by the British in 1947.

Millions of people were displaced and many lakhs of them lost their lives in the communal violence that followed.
