Creation of Pakistan

Jinnah was at first a member of the INC. He supported Ghandi and strived to get rid of the British. The article, "Pakistan or the Partition of India" by B.R. Ambedkar, mentions that there are two groups of people in India: the Muslim and the Hindu. It states that it isn't because you are a separate group of people that you need to separate from each other. You need to learn to live together and accept each other because diversity is such a wonderful thing. In Switzerland, they have three different groups: the German, the Italian and the French. These groups are first Swiss and then they are either of the three but it doesn't remove that they are still, together, one nation. To the author of this text, Jinnah shouldn't have tried to split India because it needed this diversity and even the Muslims were still Indian.
The same principle works in Quebec. Many Quebeckers would like to see Quebec separate from Canada, yet it is thanks to the differences within Canada that Canada is such a great place. It is because of the diversity as much of the people as the environment that make the country the way it is. It is up to the people to be more tolerant of one another for things to be able to work out. Separatism is not necessary because it doesn't make you any different. You will still be the same person and the surroundings will stay pretty much the same. Also, in the way the world is going, we are trying to break our limits not create them.
