Indian Independence & Modern India
India Achieves Freedom from Britain
After 200 hundred years of British rule India gained independence. But there were problems. The Congress Party for India was mainly made up of Hindu's. So the Muslims made the Muslim League. Who was led by Muhammad Ali Jinnah. They said that they weren't going to be led by Hindu's. So India was separated into Muslim and Hindu nations in 1947. This was called Partition. They left India for Hindu's, and Pakistan for Muslim's.
