MOHAMMED HUSSEIN DAR
“I told him, it is our duty to protect him, why would you shoot him? So, I shot my friend.”
Mohammad Hussein Dar, from Jhelum, Pakistan was a sepoy in one of the regiments at the time of Partition. He was responsible for the safe passage of refugees to India. At Kamoke train station, he stood courageously against his own comrades, who wanted to kill the homeless before they could reach the border. Muhammad Hussein Dar can still very clearly remember the night when he took it upon himself to ensure that no harm would reach his former countrymen from his new countrymen.
