In the light of nationwide protests against Citizens Amendment Bill in India, this paper seeks to highlight the trajectories of Muslim communities that were displaced and marginalised without crossing borders in 1947. This paper raises questions about the liminality of borders by demonstrating the ways in which situations of ‘otherness’ develop. By tracing a gendered history of Muslim ghtettoisation and resilience, it presents an ‘alternative’ history of India’s partition as Muslims became refugees in their homeland, and since then have renegotiated their post partition identities.
