  1. Sir, If you mean before 1947 then this is totally wrong. Before 1947 Overall in Undivided Punjab Sikhs made 15%, Hindus 30%, and Muslims 55% of total Population. Sikhs were a majority only in Ludhiana District with 41% Population. Mostly Hindus and Sikhs were a majority in East Punjab from Ambala to Lahore Border. Muslims had a Majority immediately as Lahore City started to end. Amritsar District had 47% Muslim Population. Lahore District had 64% Muslim Population although Rural Lahore District was dominated by Sikh Jatt Farmers and Lahore City was dominated by Hindu Khatri Businessmen. Please read reliable sources before making some comment. Sorry to say but your figures are totally dreamed-of and wrong :(
