How significant was the Partition of India?

August 1947 marked a landmark event in the history of India; after decades of communal conflict and nationalist pressures India and Pakistan were granted independent nations. The religious motivators viewed Partition as the only ‘resolution of the incompatibility of Muslim political destiny with Hindu majority power.’ The Partition championed for a legacy of Pakistan as a Muslim haven, ‘the dream, the chimera, the students’ scheme.’ However, one can argue the Partition had little success. Pakistan may have been won but it brought with it a legacy of violence, displacement, cataclysm among communities and entrenched ineluctable tensions that to this day cause international threat in regards to the unresolved borders of Kashmir. The event marked a watershed in the people’s consciousness with volcanic reactions that remain retained in the legacy of the Partition across all involved in this irreversible atrocity.
