anyone care to give examples of POV problems with this article? Syzergy 01:43, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I didn't add the POV tag, but if you see a section in an article called "Moral message" and there is not a single citation or reference for the whole article, POV is almost guaranteed. Unfortunately, I am not familiar enough with the subject matter to pick out where it is.--Hraefen Talk 05:14, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
I fail to see the POV issues. The article is very neutral, "Singh makes it clear that many people played a part in this chaos and everyone was equally worthy of blame". Who can take issue with that? Lincoln187 09:20, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I just removed the sentence "This is a startling poie have taken a right step at the right time then there would not have been such a massive bloodshed in India" (sic), which represents a POV problem example (apart from issues of meaning and grammar). This particular example may be fixable by quoting from the book itself (assuming this is the author's summary view of the Partition), otherwise there's a clear bias here. --Kink (talk) 11:51, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm just going to remove the POV section. In actuality, there are a number of characters with sufficient presence to be considered protagonists, so I don't think an accurate POV could even BE determined. If someone wants to work on a section regarding a possible bias of the author, that would be more appropriate. Event Nexus (talk) 22:24, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Combine Articles[edit]

There are appear to be two articles on the same novel, each with almost the same content. Train to Pakistan and Train to Pakiston (Mano Majra) should be combined. Glederma (talk) 02:12, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
