Example text

Pakistan was inducted, in part because of the Indians’ refusal to participate in Cold War defence arrangements. While America was willing to sign up all those players who exhibited some interest in checking the perceived onward march of communism, it didn’t bother to properly comprehend the intensity of deeprooted regional hostilities between the local states. Although both the Pakistanis and the Americans went into an alliance with a view to serving their national interests, neither fully understood the implications and consequences of an alliance between unequal partners.

The then East Pakistan (now independent Bangladesh) was and is surrounded by India on all sides except for a small strip in the south east that borders Myanmar (Burma) and faces the Bay of Bengal. Pakistan was separated from the then Soviet Union by a small Afghani territory commonly referred to as the Wakhan corridor. Since the width of the corridor is almost negligible, the Soviet Union was practically a next door neighbour for Pakistan. Furthermore, Pakistan’s inherited borders were not only very long but for much of the total length were not even properly demarcated, having been ‘man-made’.

The Muslim League’s response to this movement was to push the idea of ‘divide and quit’. Following the failure of yet another British-sponsored conference, at Simla on 25 June 1945, a general election was held in the winter of 1945–46 in which the Muslim League performed well by capturing all the Muslim seats at the centre and securing an overwhelming majority of seats in provincial assemblies. This election reinforced the League’s assertion that it was the sole representative of the Indian Muslims.
