    The most vocal enthusiasts for a separate country for Muslims were from upper class Muslims of UP-Bihar region anyway.

    someone correct me - as i dont claim to know the exxact figures
    but i saw somewhere that the populations of
    muslims and hindhus in pre-partition
    were
    ALMOST EQUAL ? - (APPROXIMATELY ?)

    especially in that case, the threat of bloodbath
    was no blackmail

    it was real !

    ( remember the "cleansing" in Lahore ?)

    As I have always stated, so long as we play this communal divide, India will remain only an illusion of secularism and each community will feel alien in their own land, be that community professing any religion.

    what happened in the past has happened for the good.
    all the superiority complex minded religious heads with their followers having left the country made this a place of peacefulness on the other hand pakistan has been a nightmare even to muslims.

    had Gandhi fore-visioned the downfall of this religious fanatic state and accepted it very early,there would have less bloddshed

    I agree with @drkrn that partition was the best thing to happen to non-religious fundamentalist people of Untited India, Muslims as well as Hindus. Those who wanted an Islamic state left and formed today's Pakistan and Bangladesh leaving the rest to live in peace.

    Consider Shias and other minority Islamic sects are safer in Indian than any Muslim majority country says much about the secular nature of this country especially when there is so much violence in states like Pakistan and even in apparently peaceful Indonesia Ahmediyyas are not considered Muslims.
