The Indian subcontinent witnessed an unprecedented communal nationalism and gruesome phenomena of terrorism in the wake of decision of the British to divide the whole country into two nations – the Hindu India and the Muslim Pakistan – in August 1947. Partition left a burning scar in the memory of the whole Indian subcontinent. Reckless massacre of people of almost all religious communities, riots, plunder, rape, abduction, arsons led to the total loss of the national integrity, political stability and communal harmony. Khushwant Singh’s Train to Pakistan (1956) is a fictionalized account of the nightmarish experiences of the communal frenzy and sinister fanaticism that preceded and followed the decision of partition of the British India. But the final impression of the novel is never pessimistic; it is unmistakably optimistic. The paper proposes to show, through an analysis of the thematic and stylistic features of the novel, how the message of love, sympathy and humanism wins at the sad end of the horrendous tale of death, destruction and tragedy. Key Words: Train to Pakistan, terror, communal, humanism, optimism
