Millions of people were displaced during the largest mass migration in human history, during the partition of India and Pakistan. It has been 74 years since India gained its freedom but the horrors and pain of partition still linger - especially in the hearts of people and families directly affected by it.

The short clip of the emotional reunion of the siblings has been doing rounds on Twitter.

According to reports, Siddique and Habib, residents of Faisalabad and Punjab respectively, were separated when the former was just an infant. During the partition their family got split up and the brothers were raised on two different sides of the Partition line.
