No, Mahatma Gandhi was not directly responsible for the partition of India. The partition of India in 1947 was primarily a political decision made by the British government, influenced by various factors such as religious tensions, communal violence, and political negotiations.

During the time leading up to India's independence from British rule, there were growing tensions between the Hindu and Muslim communities in the country. The demand for a separate nation for Muslims, called Pakistan, gained momentum under the leadership of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the All India Muslim League. The British government, in consultation with various political leaders and communities, decided to partition India along religious lines to create two separate nations: India (with a Hindu majority) and Pakistan (with a Muslim majority).

Mahatma Gandhi opposed the idea of partition and advocated for a united India where people of all religions could coexist peacefully. He believed in the principles of religious harmony and fought against communal violence. Gandhi undertook various efforts, including fasting and promoting peace and communal harmony, to prevent the partition from happening. However, his influence alone could not prevent the political forces and communal tensions that ultimately led to the partition.

It is important to note that the partition of India resulted in widespread violence, displacement, and loss of life. The decision and its aftermath continue to be subjects of historical study and debate, involving the roles and responsibilities of multiple political leaders, communities, and the British government.

No, nobody except the British was responsible. It were the British who divided and ruled us and you are throwing the filth on our heroes!?

“The partition is inevitable. Either create one Pakistan or see a million Pakistans create" was the call by Vallabhbhai Patel

A huge country with a weak centre is better than a small country with a strong centre, take the example of Afghanistan.

We had to partition India otherwise the riots and illegal coversions wouldn't stop, but some big hearted Muslims stayed back, hoping to make Pakistan surrounded by 2 Muslim countries, Afghanistan and India, which they hope to turn Islamic by 2045.

Wake up fellow Hindus,


Those you do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Those you ignore history become a part of it.

 In my opinion, Mahatma Gandhi never wanted the partition of India.

However, certain political decisions that he took was incorrect and it initiated the chain of events which ultimately led to the partition of India in 1947.

Mahatma Gandhi's support for the khilafat movement can be considered as a classic example of using religious issue as a political tool for mass mobilization.

He never knew that his decision will act as a catalyst for religious nationalists to take advantage of the situation and further their political agenda.

Promoting Religious Nationalism unknowingly or knowingly is similar to sending a neutron into a Uranium 235 atom in a nuclear fission reactor without any control rods.

Nuclear fission reaction in a reactor without any control rods will release untold amounts of energy and destroys the reactor in the process.
