PEACE MEMORIAL AT WAGAH-ATTARI BORDER

General Pervez Musharraff President of Pakistan Islamabad, Pakistan & Dr. Manmohan Singh Prime Minister of India New Delhi, India Dear Sirs: Millions of people suffered loss of honour, life, family, homes, livelihood, and sense of well being, on both sides of the India-Pakistan border, in the tragic aftermath of the Partition, in 1947. Many survivors still carry the scars of their suffering. Also, for more than a half-century, the wounds of Partition have embittered relationship between the people of India and Pakistan. Therefore, we, the undersigned, urge you to build a suitable monument at the Wagah-Attari Border as a memorial to the victims of the Partition violence. We hope this memorial will also serve as a symbol of ending of the armed conflicts and hostilities of the past, and of beginning of a new era of cooperation, peace, and friendship between the great people of the two countries. Together, India and Pakistan can better resist the undesirable pressures from the outside, and harness their resources better to improve the quality of life of their people.
