- WHY PARTITION?
In Bengal, East India company takeover the political power from the Nawab of Murshidabad with the help of Mirzafar and others. Nawab Sirajudaulla was defeated in the battle and thrown out of the thorn. As a result Muslims in Bengal avoid to contact with the East India Company. On the other hand Hindus were contact with the Company and latter with the British Government. They accept the offer given by the Britisher to the Indian and started the modern education as directed by the British administration. Though Muslims were the majority community, but they were educationally and politically backward due to refused to accept the education from the Britisher. The religious fundamentalism among the Muslims are responsible for their backwardness. Even though they numbered over 50% of the population, they held hardly 30% of the posts under the Government at the time of partition of India.
