But it is necessary to have a de-partitioned India because otherwise there will problems and issues unsolved. The Kashmir issue is an “issue” because it allows for extraction of resources from the valley. This is why there hasn’t been a official plebiscite in Kashmir regarding whether they wish to be in Pakistan, India or exist as a separate state. Kashmir cannot exist as a separate landlocked state because it will suffer.
Also, the same people who say that India was “divided” even before 1947 have no idea of the strikes or revolutionary battles the people fought. The 1946 Naval strike was the largest naval strike in India which was supported by the CPI and fought against the British while also broadcasting their efforts via a hijacked radio. The whole strike encompassed around 78 ships and 20,000 sailors who were on the side of the Communist “Royal Indian Navy” whose leaders fought sectarianism via electing both Muslims, Sikh and Hindus. This strike was the reason why the British left early.
Then came the police and worker strikes, construction worker strikes, etc. All condemned by the national bourgeois parties of Congress and the Muslim League (both collaborated with Lord Mountbatten and practiced no “revolution” other than Gandhi, Jinnah and Patel stuffing themselves at a British banquet.
Partition can be reversed if there is a popular vanguard party in both India and Pakistan. There has yet to be a party as powerful as the old CPI in either nation, with the Pakistan People’s Party now degenerating into a liberal party and the communist parties in India degenerating into social-democratic parties.
The genocide of Muslims by Sikhs/Hindus and of Sikhs/Hindus by Muslims during the 1947 refugee crisis was directly caused by the secrecy of the British in defining the boundaries. Their wrongdoings caused sectarian violence to occur due to a shortage of transportation and directly caused 2 million of my people to die.
I can say as a Pakistani that there is sectarianism in both India and Pakistan because of a lack of a communist alternative. People flock to Hindu or Muslim nationalist parties because they have no communist alternative. Pakistani people despise American imperialism, but because they don’t have a communist alternative, they have to support Islamist parties who use populism and anti-americanism to get into office, and when they do the people who voted for them are the ones who resent them the most.
