Why Did India and Pakistan Split?

Answer

India and Pakistan split because of religious rivalry. Attempts to come up with a compromise constitution favourable to both Muslims and Hindus failed and India descended into civil war. Following the signing of the Indian Independence Act in 1947, the Muslim majority areas were separated from India, creating the independent state of Pakistan.
