The 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan is one of the greatest catalyst events in the Indian History. It resulted in mass killing, abduction, rape, loss of life and family. Most of the accounts that we find in the form of history are tailored and fabricated according to the “grand narrative” which consciously has marginalized the voices of women. Sadat Hasan Manto attempts to voice these marginalized, silenced and neglected voices through his writings. Manto was a fearless champion of the truth and was disdainful of any kind of hypocrisy. He wrote for marginalized people, openly mocking the system which tried to suppress some voices.
