AFTER THE SERIES YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS the historical perspective of Indo- Pak reli What is the historical perspective of Indo - Pak relations? Why was there a crises between the two countries? All issues pertaining to India Pakistan Relations?
HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE Pakistan was born by carving out two geographically far flung areas from the earst-while British India. The basis of this division was: a sense of difference in identity, which gave rise to instability in government, inefficiency of political parties and a weak political culture leading to the scenario for a politically and socially unstable state.
HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE The partition of British India led to the creation of two sovereign states: The Union of India and The Dominion of Pakistan in the August of 1947
WAS THE PARTITION OF BOUNDARIES OR SOMETHING ELSE? Partition was in respect of the division of the: Bengal province of British India into East Pakistan and West Bengal (India) and the similar partition of the Punjab province into Punjab of West Pakistan and Punjab of India
WAS THE PARTITION OF BOUNDARIES OR SOMETHING ELSE? There was also respective divisions of: assets, including the British Indian Army, the Indian Civil Service and other administrative services, the Railways and the central treasury. Pakistan was virtually divided into two geographically far flung divisions with distinctly separate cultures, never to be assimilated in a single nationhood
MAJOR CRISIS The relationship between these two twin states got sour from the very beginning. There had been three types of wars between the two countries: Two Full Scale Wars (1965 & 1971), Two Limited Wars (1947 & 1999) and An Ongoing Proxy War waged by the Pakistani side with the help of various anti-state and terrorist elements.
THE KASHMIR ISSUE The accession of Jammu and Kashmir to India became final on October 27, and the army was airlifted to clear the aggressions. Pakistan refused to accept the accession. Prime Minister of Pakistan, Liaquat Ali Khan stated that, > 'the accession of Kashmir to India is a fraud perpetrated on the people of Kashmir by its cowardly ruler with the aggressive help of the Government of India.' In this way started the root cause of enimity between the two neighbours.
