      Manchala & sallu,
      Not that many ppl. are interested & even if they are ,they aere not committed enough to STUDY it.

      I'll give you a very short,simple &deep answer.

      The Demand of Muslim part of India was justified by Muslim League.BUT neither Hindu Or Muslims knew what shape of the country ,would be untill 3 months before Aug 47 .In that 3 months Jinnah expressed his displeasure .He wanted Corridor connecting East Pakistan With West Pakistan ,but Mt, Matten wouldnt budge on any change.The line was drawn by Radcliff a britsh govt Surveyer,who only considered areas that were densely predominantly muslims like 75 -99% muslims as sure pakstan.Other states which had 30 -50 % muslim like u.p bihar,hyderabad,parts of West Bengal murshidabad,Malda,Bashirhat etc,was no way going to be Pakistan.The borders & allocation all were done by british,in my opinion neither Jinnah can be blamed for the mess ,nor would i credit him so much for creating anything.Yes acting as representative of muslim league & safe guarding the rights of muslim of predominantly populated with muslims areas of east & west Pakistan
      But Jinnah would have to take the criticism of now 150 million Indian muslims which probably were 15-20 million dispersed in india ununiformly with thick population in Bihar U.P. &hydearabad ,West Bengal & through out india actually 5-10% including south India.

      So partitionwas HOTCH-POTCH

      If it was religous -then why 150 million are still in India

      & if proportionate allotment was done Muslim should have had 1/3 share in all of India like its metro city,Industries,etc.

      At best the partition was a botched up surgery done with callousness in haste or by an inexperienced trainee intern surgeon!!

        The division of India and Pakistan on the basis of religious terms was not fair. To make it fair all the muslims living in India should go to pakistan and very few fractions of % Hindus living in Pakistan should move to india. The division was just to satisfy wishes both Jinnah and Nehru who wanted to be prime minister of any country, they didn't care much about peoples living in india or pakistan. Division resulted in the death of millions of muslims in india and hindus and sikhs in pakistan. British didn't gain anything materialistically but weakened both countries militarily.

          Actually no, it is because we have discussed it more times than clinton has had tea parties.

            Whatever discussion have been done ,the facts are as almost most ppl. agree.The best excuse on both sides is 'we didnt know it will lead to this' in other wards plea of ignorence .Do we suffer b/c of our foreathers short comings (,i dont blame them seeing & reading how british had enslaved all of mid east,Africa ,Asia )or we asians ,African &mid eastern heal ourselves & resolve to remember our sufferings & learn from it for better to-morrow.

              the division of pakistan was very unfair and did great injustice to the muslims of the subcontinent
              kashmir being a muslim majority province should have gone to pakistan
              the dist of ferozepur in punjab should have gone to pak
              the dist of gurdaspur had a muslim majority
              but because there was a military base and the road to kashmir went through gurdaspur
              nehru conspired with mountbaten to pressure mr radcliffe to give gurdaspur to india . infact earlier mr radcliffe had awarded gurdaspur to pakistan but latter changed it at the last moment and under nehru and mountbattens pressure gave it to india
