The National Partition Commemoration Project is a strategic Group in the UK which has been established to take forward a national campaign comprising of people from diverse backgrounds and experience. These include academics, media, faith groups, and people from public services including educational establishments and Members of Parliament.
The NPCC aims:
1) To mark 17th August (the day the Radcliffe Boundary was published) as a formal ‘Partition Commemoration Day’ that is recognized by the UK government.
2) To increase better understanding between British South Asian and non- South Asian Communities via education and public campaigns by ensuring that Partition history is taught as part of the National Curriculum.
