India’s Partition in 1947

There is a discussion on who was responsible for India’s partition in 1947 and how it could have been avoided. This discussion is pointless at this time as, if India was not divided in 1947, it would in all probability have been partitioned in the 1990s when the Muslim-majority provinces of the former Soviet Union became independent countries. Former Yugoslavia also split into several independent countries. The only thing to be regretted is the large scale violence and deaths that took place at the time of partition and the bitterness it created among the people of the partitioned countries.
