Preview – Dangerous Borders: A Journey Across India & Pakistan

Adnan Sarwar with Salman Ahmed

Journalists Adnan Sarwar and Babita Sharma continue their journey across the dangerous border between India and Pakistan. Tonight they travel through the province of Punjab, along the volatile border that divides India and Pakistan.

Adnan begins at the Quaid-E-Azam Solar Park covering 6,500 acres. Whilst this is going to go some way to solving the country’s power shortage, it risks upsetting Pakistan’s neighbours, while Babita first visits the city of Chandigarh, which became the new capital of Indian Punjab at Partition.

Moving further out, more than fifty miles across the border in Lahore, Adnan meets a couple who, in 1947, spent over two months walking from India to the safety of Muslim-dominated Pakistan and listens as they recount the brutal violence they witnessed on their journey.
