Ehsan, you have the right to your opinion. However, two quick points, was India so 'great' before the British came? It was a collection of Princely States before the Brits, it was not even one country! India was united largely by the Mughal rule and then by the British who established the rail system. And secondly, partition is mainly a result of Muslim insecurity in a Hindu dominated India. In 1947, the Muslims by and large wanted a Muslim state because they felt threatened in a Hindu dominated India. So lets not blame the British now. If partition is a sore point for you, blame Jinnah as much as the Brits. If you ask me, I think it has worked out just fine for us.

Actually, this is the wrong board. For a more in-depth debate, lets take this to Forget Cricket! Sorry Tehsin bhai.
