The British quit India after a reign of 200 years which resulted in the partition of 1947. Throughout the country, communal violence kept spreading and the final decision to partition India was taken resulting in – The Union of India and the Dominion of Pakistan, which consisted of half of the Punjab in the West, and half of Bengal in the East, areas with predominantly Muslim populations.
On August 15, 1947, the Partition of the Indian subcontinent created two nation states - India and Pakistan.
