    Partition of the British Raj empire

    Quaid-e-Azam or Jinnah suggested partition was the only solution to the communal problem in South Asia.


    Since the Muslims in West Pakistan have nothing in common with the Hindus, Christians, Parsis, and Buddhists of India.

    The Bangladeshis eventually left the United Pakistan in 1972 due to mistreatment by the Pathan-Punjabi-Kashmiri military aristocracy in Pakistan.

    The Kashmir Dispute remains an unresolved matter of partition.

    Many European scholars believed that partition was the only solution to the communal problem.

      However the British administration were against partition, because Louis Mountbatten thought a United India would be a useful counterweight against China.

      However Jinnah led the Muslim League with such tenacity and skill, that the British administration had no choice but to agree to partitioning the British Raj empire.

      Myanmar/Burma also became an independent country later on, as a Buddhist country.
