They were with us until 1947, everything was good. Lahore and Karachi were as much Indian as much Delhi and Kolkata. You could take a train from Bhopal to Karachi or Lahore to Mumbai via Multan.
But some people wanted a different identity; a different roof to live under. They didn’t do the far sighted analysis of problems associated with a new nation; they only rushed with hot blood. And today, many of them regret the partition. I am not lying, many of them regret it particularly the Pakistani who live in foreign.
Jinnah, wanted Pakistan to be a country of Peace, he wanted Pakistan to be a role model , a religion free place. But from the first day, he saw wide bloodshed. His soul cried and he has written ” Pakistan was my mistake” before his death.
Since Independence, India has been able to successfully establish the Democarcy ( A biggest achievement ) . Now a days, world see us a forthcoming superpower and every country is shaking hands with us. India has been able to curb religious wars under its land. More or less, all religions live with pretty less nit and grit. But Pakistan could not do this.
Army overthrew the democracy again and again and kept the country politically unstable ( And till today, Democracy isnt completely established there). Religious groups have established themselves firm and killing many in everyday blasts. in 2000s, when the whole world is going forward at a very fast economic rate, Pakistan is growing at 3-4 %. No tourists go there , Companies think 10 times before investing in Pakistan, foreign delegates go there rarely ( Except China). Badnaam hi itna ho gya hai.
You can also say, India is also far behind the developed world community but our comparison with Pakistan makes us look in a better shape. We started from same point and in same time, India is ahead. From every angle, the Partition has done nothing good for their side. We have also faced disadvantages of Partition but it hardly matters as Pakistan was their choice. Their choice could not make them happy.
Things are not working out for them; like a neglected twin, they feel jealous of us but who can be blamed. Now i can see Pakistan, with a sad face and looking at India. Looking at Growing and smiling India. Looking at Bollywood and Modi. Looking at countries investing in us and coming to see Tajmahal. Looking at Mangalyaan and our Panchsheel.
I am sorry for my Pakistani brothers and sisters; we could have been a family but it was your choice….
