Sarwan will meet after 75 years with nephew who got separated in Partition
22 family members lost in riots; Will go to Kartarpur Sahib to meet his brother's son
Sarwan Singh, 92, hailing from Punjab, will meet his nephew, who was separated at the time of partition in 1947. Sarwan will meet his brother's son Mohan Singh at the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara, the final resting place of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism in Pakistan. Sarvan is overjoyed to meet his nephew after 75 years.
Sarwan Singh's grandson Parvinder told that Mohan Singh was about six years old at the time of the partition. Now he has a new identity there, a Muslim name. After being separated from the family, he was raised by a Muslim family in Pakistan. Presently Mohan Singh is living in 371 Chakk of Pakistan under the name of Afzal Khalif.
Two YouTubers from India and Pakistan have helped reunite the two relatives. A YouTuber from Jandiala recorded several stories of Partition. A few months back he met Sarwan Singh and posted a video of his life story on his channel. Across the border, a Pakistani YouTuber narrated the story of Mohan Singh, who was separated from his family at the time of Partition.
A man of Punjab origin living in Australia watched two videos and helped reunite relatives. In a video, Sarwan, revealing the identity of his missing nephew, said that he had two thumbs on one hand and a large mole on one thigh. On the other hand, such things about Mohan were also shared in the video posted by a Pakistani YouTuber. With this Sarvan recognized Mohan.
Parvinder told that Nana's family lived in Chak village, which is now in Pakistan. Almost all 22 members of his family were killed in the riots during the partition, while 23 members went missing. Somehow Sarwan and some of his family members managed to cross the border. During this, Mohan was separated from her.
