India y Pakistán celebran 75 años de independencia

By Jordi Bou

August 14, 2022 - La independencia del dominio colonial británico en 1947 dividió al subcontinente en las dos naciones separadas de India y Pakistán, pero llevó a matanzas sin precedentes a ambos lados de la frontera creada apresuradamente.

India and Pakistan mark 75 years of independence from British rule. In 1947, Britain, faced with irreconcilable differences over the demand for a separate state for India's Muslims, decided to divide the country.

The break-up, agreed to by most of India's political leaders, brought independence but also tragedy, resulting in the exodus of some 15 million people and the deaths of up to two million in internecine bloodshed.
