Pakistan; or the partition of India

Thu 29 March 2018 by Thejaswi Puthraya

Every person in the Indian subcontinent is aware of the misery caused by the partition of India. A lot of people believe that the Indian Congress Party and the first Prime Minister of India were responsible. They insist that the partition could have been avoided and history would've been kinder.

Dr.Ambedkar analyses this question dispassionately through historical events (division of Greece), data (army recruitment numbers, tax revenues) and the legitimacy and feasibility of demands by the Muslim League and the Indian Congress.

I won't go into the solutions proposed by him but those would have earned him the 'anti-national' tag if he were alive today.
