i am planning to write an ee on the 1947 partition of india, in particular the events that happened in punjab. a research question i came up with is "to what extent can the violence which took place during the 1947 partition of punjab be defined as a genocide?"
i wanted to know if focusing on a single region was specific enough for my research. also, i feel like the topic of genocide is very delicate and tricky to discuss, and i would prefer to come up with something else but i can't think of anything.
any feedback/tip would be greatly appreciated !! :)
