Khushdeva Singh (1902–1985) was an Indian physician and social worker, known for his contributions towards the treatment of tuberculosis in India. As a doctor working in refugee camps, he saved many Muslim lives during partition.
This is what Dr. Khushdeva Singh writes about his experience during one of his visits to Karachi in 1949 :
My friends took me to a room at the airport where we all sat down and talked... (and) had lunch together, I had to travel from Karachi to London... at 2.30 am... At 5.00. p.m. ... I told my friends that they had given me so generously of their time, I thought it would be too much for them to wait the whole night and suggested they must spare themselves the trouble. But nobody left until it was dinner time.... Then they said they were leaving and that I must have a little rest before emplaning. .... I got up at about 1.45 a.m. and, when I opened the door, I saw that all of them were still there.... They all accompanied me to the plane, and, before parting, presented me with a small basket of grapes. I had no words to express my gratitude for the overwhelming affection with which I was treated and the happiness this stopover had given me.
He kept repeating to himself as he returned from Karachi
Love is stronger than hatred, love is far stronger than hatred, love is
far stronger than hatred, love is far stronger than hatred, and love is
far stronger than hatred at any time and anywhere. It was a thousand
times better to love and die, than to live and hate.
From his book Love is Stronger Than Hate: A Remembrance of 1947.
