Master Tara Singh not only got integrated into India half of Punjab (Now Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh) but he was also mastermind behind the integration of half of Bengal which was also a Muslim majority province, into India. The Hindu leaders of Bengal, Mr. N.C. Chatterjee (a noted lawyer of the country at his time) and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee mooted the demand of partition of Bengal at the behest of Master Tara Singh to save a bit of it for India, and succeeded in their mission with his help. Thus Master Ji shaped the boundaries of India in 1947 and became the tallest of all the national leaders who allegedly for the hunger of power wanted to get rid of Britishers at the cost whatever it may be. This sort of leader – Master Tara Singh – did not get due recognition from the country and had to meet with the fate destined for a member of minority community perhaps all over the world. Due to his feat, Mr. Jinnah had said that Master Tara Singh made his Pakistan Lame. The Muslims took revenge of this by burning down his house in Pakistan and hacking to death 59 of his relatives.
Here I would like to substantiate my above statement with the statement of Prithipal Singh Kapoor, Former Pro VC, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar from The Tribune July 6, 2008, "Historians have given their estimates about Master Tara Singh. They agree that it was due to his politics that the British had to partition Punjab, Bengal and Assam, which left a truncated Pakistan for Mohd. Ali Jinnah. This was no mean achievement, particularly in the face of incessant efforts of Britishers at all levels to persuade the Sikh leaders collectively and severally to align with Pakistan."Download Ebook to Read Continue
