Who Wants Pakistan? - If the people of a certain part of the Country do not want to live with the people of other parts, we cannot compel them to do so”. – Pandit Nehru - Shankar, India, 1947.

On June 3, 1947, Earl Mountbatten, who had succeeded Wavell as Viceroy, announced his proposals for the transfer of power. The announcement envisaged the creation of Pakistan if the Muslim representatives of the Muslim-majority provinces demanded it. Nehru said in a broadcast that a surgical operation was preferable to India's bleeding all the time. Shankar shows the Congress leaders offering Pakistan to the Muslim League on a platter and Gandhi walking away in protest.
