Guys I guess you all are mistaking a cultural divide for religious one, Punjab (Unified in 1947) included Haryana, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh was a Hindu majority area. The massive killings that took place were shared in reasonable proportion amongst Hindus and Sikhs or rather us Punjabis. Its just that the Kangressis tried to later give a bad name to Sikhs through their pet historians by laying entire blame at their feet, which being a Punjabi Hindu I shall have to strongly refute. Punjabi Hindus have very strong affiliations to 10 Gurus and believe in them very strongly. What Punjab did in 1947 was condemned by Gandhi and other Kangressis because whole of Punjab refused to buy into the dhimmi propoganda of Kangress unlike the other state that got partitioned (I dont want to be parochial).
What happened in Punjab was a simple question of our PAGRI (Turbans which both Hindu and Sikh wear, old timers may recall) and when the crunch time came Jihadis were paid back not in the same but even more savege and larger coin.
Going against the prevailing Congressi policy of appeasement of poobaah's men, Punjabis (both Hindus & Sikhs) cleaned up the whole of Punjab of them. (While I personally have always felt uncomfortable about it, but over the years have seen the positive effects of that act.) If the rest of the country had followed the Punjabi example, India would be in much much better place right now. The cities of Delhi, Lucknow, Aligarh and all the rest of N. India could have been cleaned up. The window of opportunity existed for almost 3-5 years. Deoband should have been trashed. AMU, where the murderous 2 nation theory was hashed, should have been destroyed.
Unfortunately, most of India chose not to follow the Punjabi example. They, if anything, looked down upon the Punjabis. Punjabis being simple people, not given to a lot of intellectualism, understood the threat from poobaah very well. They understood that by setting up Pakistan, muzims have ceased the right to stay in India proper. They went ahead and imposed their judgement. Mind you, it was not inspired by any leader of any merit (most of them were Congressi, by the way), but it was a grassroot level understanding that the Hindu/Sikh punjabis acted upon.
By keeping poobah's in India, India got the worst of both worlds---it lost strategic territory, and did not even solve the poobah problem. Poobah's walked away with 30% of India, and got a cushy spot in India too. They can live in entire Akhand Bharat---anywhere from Peshawar to Dhacca. Kaafirs cannot.
Consequences of this are there for us to see in 2008. Jaipur is just one in the series---many have happened in the past, and many shall happen in the future.
