BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS
By Shah Jhan Shaukat
Shah Jhan Shaukat lives in Rochdale and was born in Britain. The partition of Pakistan and India 60 years ago is something he feels is more relevant to his parents. But he says those of Pakistani descent in Britain should try to understand what they went through: the blood, sweat and tears that led to Pakistan's birth.
