After many long years of fighting for India's freedom, they finally got their independence in 1947 with the help of Gandhi and many nonviolent protests. Unfortunately tension still remained between the Hindus and Muslims.
The Muslims wanted a partition of India, but the Hindus disagreed. They believed that the partition would cause many more problems including weakening India, weakening the economy, forcing people out of their homes/forcing them to pick Pakistan or India, and increasing the violence.
Britain sped up the delicate process causing tension and violence between the neighboring groups. The Partition Plan was ultimately accepted after many riots and violence.
