    They were seeking independence for PUNJAB..... They shook hands with india s thinkin' "The Enemy of your Enemy is your friend"... But that wasn't the case..... Didn't get Punjab.... was'Nt even given the status of a state for another 30 years.....

    @Logical Sikh I'm not sure your characterisation that Sikhs were looking for a independent state is correct or that punjab was not a state until the mid 70s

    As of what the situation was in 1947, Sikhs were not looking for an INDEPENDENT STATE, But Rather an AUTONOMOUS state which was Promised by Indian and Pak officials.
    Going with Pakistan would mean they'd have to give up PATNA SAHIB, Hazoor Sahib
    Going with india would mean Give up NANKANA SAHIB.
    Sikhs were given Same Offers from both india and Pakistan ( maybe more from Pakistan ), But there was a Trust issue with Pakistan as because of their History with mughals, So maybe thats why Sikh leaders decided to go with India at that time.

    The only sikh states that had any say were the princely states, most of the panjab did not have a choice

    I rather think the Sikh situation was a bit like pass the parcel, in the sense that we were passed round between both parties in the vain hope that someone would be able to take us, and then kill any ambitions for power sharing. One must remember that Nehru and Jinnah were both trained solicitors, and our Sikh representative, Masterji, could cook some really wonderful parathas, but unfortunately had no legal training at all, Nehru and Jinnah must have been {censored} themselves at the naive and trusting way we allowed ourselves to be sewn up

    True.

    it is true because all the decision making power was in no more than 2 or 3 sikh leaders, which were not even on the same line, and SHIT happens when you have only a few representatives and they too disagree with each other......... Same situation like today man......... nothing changed
