The situation of India and Pakistan is very similar of the situation of Quebec and Canada. To begin, they had a common source a problem (the British in this case) and they both had to ally in order to get rid of the problem. The Quebec is a minority in Canada and they want to be considered as a different country because of their different language, historical background, religion, traditions etc. Like the Muslim in India, the Quebec population tried to become an Independent country. Quebec tried twice with referendum but failed, unlike the Muslim who succeeded by creating Pakistan. In both cases, the two opposite sides had to make some concessions. Quebec has their own province with their own limited government and the Muslim have a country making India loose a part of it territory. In both cases despite some occasional violence, the two groups tried to make pacific agreement. In India, Ghandi claimed the passive aggressive way in order to get ride in the British Empire and to make concessions with the Muslim. In Canada, Quebec tried with law like the law 101 to separate itself gradually from Canada. In both cases, humans right are not always respected and conflicts occasionally occur. Therefore, they should try harder in a pacific way to arrive to an agreement that satisfy both side.
