The Amrita Bazar Patrika was a popular nationalist newspaper. It was started in 1868 by two brothers, Sisir Kumar Ghosh and Moti Lal Ghosh. It was initially a Bengali weekly. Later it became a daily and turned into an English newspaper overnight when the Vernacular Press Act was imposed in 1878. Here it shows the news related to the Direct Action Day (16 August 1946), which was an incident of widespread communal violence, organised by the Muslim League to assert its demand for a separate Muslim homeland.
