    As the Indian independence movement progressed, many Muslims in the subcontinent became worried about the idea of living in a Hindu majority country.  They became concerned that they would lack power as a minority in an independent and democratic India.  So a plan was worked up to partition British India into two different states.  One of them, India, would be mostly Hindu and the other, Pakistan, would be mostly Muslim.  The British divided up the country so that most of the majority Muslim regions became part of Pakistan.  But this left the new country of Pakistan geographically divided because Muslims in the subcontinent were concentrated in the Indus valley in the West and in the Ganges delta in the East.  In between was Hindu majority India.  There were always problems between East and West Pakistan.  Other than being Muslims they didn't necessarily have much in common.  East Pakistan was significantly poorer than West Pakistan and, distanced from the capital, felt that they lacked political power and that their needs weren't being met.  This lead, eventually, to the Bangladeshi independence movement in 1971 which established an independent state of Bangladesh

    Sorry, mate, but it just can't be done. We historians keep meaning to write books and internet articles on that war, but we just haven't quite managed to get around to it yet. We'll get there eventually, so don't worry. Hope this helped, y' twit.
