Partition of India and Pakistan 70 years on

In August 1947 the British left the Indian subcontinent and divided the country into India and Pakistan


It has been seven decades since the British colonial rulers left India and partitioned the country into two, displacing 10 to 15 million people, splitting families and prompting refugees to migrate all over the world.

The two independent countries of India and Pakistan – the former majority Hindu, the latter the world’s first Islamic republic – were established at midnight on 14 August 1947. “At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom,” announced Nehru, India’s first prime minister.

Violence broke out among the chaos of the mass migration as millions of Muslims moved from areas marked inside India’s boundaries to west and east Pakistan (now Bangladesh), and millions of Hindus moved from those areas to India.

The Deadly Legacy of India’s Partition. “As the peasants trudged along wearily, mounted guerrillas burst out of the tall crops that lined the road and culled them like sheep.”

But it was for their own good and enrichment Philip , all the Empire did was pour in money , send them all to University , and give them all their very own bicycle.

Millions of which were used to muster to fight and die in the second world war.

Good investment for the raghead noddies ?

Re: Partition of India and Pakistan 70 years on

On this occasion it was more of problem of Britain pulling out of India. Leaving the two religions to fight amongst themselves- again, religion rears its ugly head.

Re: Partition of India and Pakistan 70 years on

Was the problem caused by the British being there? or would the two religions have come to war anyway? Certainly, we would have been responsible for bringing arms into the Countries and teaching them how to fight, but if we weren,t there would they have eventually gone to war anyway? they had been at war for centuries but more with wooden clubs and stones - we just taught them how to kill each other quicker.

Re: Partition of India and Pakistan 70 years on

We sent the last viceroy because his wife was a good shag , there was not even any pretense of diplomacy , the hot brick was dropped with no proper planning or diplomatic agreements with international backing.

Hurrah for the Viceroy
