Great Calcutta Killing
The Great Calcutta Killing or the Day of Direct Action (Muslim title) was a large-scale riot which took place in mid-August, 1946 between Hindus and Muslims in India. The result of a proposal to partition the country into separate Muslim/Hindu states in the wake of the departure of British rule in India, the riot resulted in the deaths of 5,000-10,000 people.
