Solution

Although the partition of British India was marked by mass murders, rape and arson, people in various regions and areas granted shelter to their neighbours belonging to different religions to save them from the activities of rioters. Thus, during Partition, we find several instances and events based on humanity and human values. Dr Khushdeva Singh describes his work as ‘humble efforts he made to discharge his duty as a human being to fellow human beings’.

Values which one needs to nurture to avoid hatred are the values of universal brotherhood, empathy, love, kindness, mutual understanding and equality.
