Seeking Jain Volunteers For Claremont Lincoln University Research Project


“Ahimsa in the face of disaster: Jain responses to the Partition of India in 1947"

Claremont Lincoln University in Claremont, California, USA has embarked on a very unique and significantly important research project to study the role of Jains caught in the riots of partition of India in 1947 when in the name of religion, humanity had gone mad and there was murder, looting, raping , burning and torture on an unimaginable scale all around and with them. This study involves the camera interviews of still living survivors of that horrible chapter in the history of India. Please read the attachment. The Project is looking for and seeking survivors and their relatives (Jains and friends of Jains ) who migrated to India and can share the memories of that period in their own words.
