Pakistan Without Partition: Let's Revive The Buried Idea Of Indo-Pak Confederation

The idea of an India-Pakistan Confederation (which in today's context should also include Bangladesh) may seem far-fetched. However, as the two South Asian neighbours celebrate the 68th anniversary of their independence from British rule -- a joyous occasion that was accompanied by the horrific Partition-induced communal bloodbath -- it is useful to remember that some sort of India-Pakistan federation or confederation was a distinct possibility when the British left our subcontinent. Sadly, Congress and Muslim League leaders buried the opportunity due to their series of blunders and misjudgements.
