In his book “Partition – Can it be undone?” , he explained the division of the sub-continent and the creation of two states; Pakistan and India in which millions of people had lost their lives, not only during the process of partition, but also in the last 63 years due to terrorism, disease, poverty, hunger, corruption and illiteracy on both sides of the boundaries.
