Impact and aftermath of Partition:
The Partition of India has been one of the most tragic of all political events to affect India. The British left, dividing India into two. The nation was divided along religious lines, Pakistan as an Islamic state and India a secular one.

But the question still arises, whether the Partition was wise and was it inevitable? The partition left both the nation devastated. The subsequent migration of the people led to endless sufferings and miseries. Not only was the country divided, but provinces of Punjab and West Bengal were also partitioned, which caused many riots and claimed many lives. Hindus and Muslims used women as instruments of power. Many were raped and looted.

India and Pakistan are still healing their wounds of partition. Boundary issues have caused many wars between the two nations. Even the imposition of an official boundary has not resolved these conflicts. They are deadlocked over the issues of possession of Kashmir. In recent times too, they have fought over issues of L.O.C. in the Kargil war. Both the nations are still in a state of constant hostility.
