My sincere apologies for keeping you waiting for a month with this video. It was supposed to only be 12 minutes long, but I got lost in the research and the scope and size of this topic, so I ended up making an almost one-hour long video. And still... I think this video doesn't contain enough information.
The Topic is India and Pakistan, their conflicts for independence and the historical background of such. As well as the conflicts that resulted out of independence. An overview of the Indian republic and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. As well as a brief intermission on Bangladesh and the geopolitics surrounding Sri Lanka. I hope you enjoyed the video. Don't forget to support the channel. And as said in the video, here is a bibliography:
Hermann Kulke - A History of India, 1998
Frédéric Landy - Dictionnaire de l'Inde contemporaine, 2010 (many thanks to the French subscriber who provided translations and information)
Laurent Gayer - Karachi: Ordered Disorder and the Struggle for the City, 2014

"20 years after the anti-sikh riots, a sikh would become Prime Minister" You missed to mention that India had a Sikh President at the time of the riots. President Zail Singh, on this part, desperately phoned the Prime Minister's Office to help out the fellow Sikh people from getting slaughtered. But the PMO was curiously "unreachable".

Lucky you, here in Indonesia our religious coexistence has-been consistently shaky, large neoconservative Islamist movements born in part as a response to mass religious suppression during Soeharto's reign, no recognition of any religion outside of 6 recognized; Islam, Protestant and Roman Catholic Christianity (they're considered separate, probably a leftover from colonial times), Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism (which has troubled recognition, supported during Soekarno's; outlawed during Suharto's; and recognized again during Gus Dur's presidency); and to add, stagnancy and franky terrible political literacy also as a result of Soeharto's reign only allowing limited parties and suppression of leftist movements post-G30S

As a Sri Lankan, the part about my country is completely correct. After the years of civil war we are relieved to finally have a say on the world stage. However, due to some corruption and massive foreign investment schemes from china we are still weary of exploiting our geopolitical value on the world stage. Hopefully this will change and there will be peace and prosperity not only in Sri Lanka but across the subcontinent.

Saudi is more closure to India now, Sri Lanka was bullied by Chinese at Hambantota, Pakistan's support to Taliban backfired at Duran line, India's not so good relations with Bnagladesh, etc. & one important relation which was missed was "Russia was and still is India's friendly state."

Yup, Russia was and still is India's greatest ally. They helped a big time against USA and UK during 1971 Bangladesh liberation war. Russia sent their Task Force 74 to protect INS vikrant from USA's 7th fleet and UK's eagle. Without Russia and India's help, maybe Bangladesh would never come in existence.

Its scary though how often that can happen in many authoritarian nations. Like Orwell described in 1984, authoritarian regimes are not that concerned with the wider uneducated masses (proles) but it is the ”middle class” that are most under surveillance(outer party members). The thing that happened in bangladesh happened in the soviet union during stalins reign, it happened in nazi germany, still happening to some extent in china and it happened in the most extreme in Cambodia during Pol Pots reign. Education and the capability to express diversity of opinions scares the authoritarian rulers.

It was scary! They killed most of our top intellectuals in the country. University teachers, students, lawyers, Engineers, journalists, politicians etc. Only those who escaped in time and took refuge in India were alive after our independence. Even to this day, the education system is messed up, superstitions are rampant and teachers cant teach you much. We rely on online sources, books and self learning. At the very least, Bangladesh became independent instead of being stuck in generations of guerrilla warfare like many other places in the world :)

Indians have a strong ability to hypnotize themselves. Almost all the Bhutanese, Nepalese, Bangladeshis, Kashmiris, Sikkim and Southern Tibetans I met online regard India as their biggest threat. Only Indians believe that they are their savior and protector, saving their neighbors from China's claws. For example, in Indian textbooks, Sikkim volunteered to join India. But this is not true. India sent 5000 soldiers to overthrow Sikkim kingdom. Meanwhile, Indians have a strong dream of superpower. Most of the reports about China's power come from abroad, while India is the opposite. And this is reflected in many of India's foreign strategies. In short, India is like a shrinking America. Indians believe that too. Although it does not have the strength of the United States. I do hope China and India keep peace. But if India still has ambitions for Tibet, it will be clearly impossible.

In addition, correct another author's prejudice against China. Not China invaded Kashmir, but India invaded Tibet first. Here is the timeline: In 1953, the Indian army expanded northward, acquiring about 90,000 square kilometers of territory south of the McMahon Line, and even crossing the "Mai Line" in some places. In the middle and west sections, India also occupies part of the disputed territories of India and China. In August 1958, a clash between China and the Indian patrol resulted in the killing of an Indian soldier, and China controlled the original Indian military position. On September 8, Premier Zhou Enlai of the State Council explained the operation, stating that the purpose of the operation was to prevent remaining Tibetan insurgents from entering and leaving the border. In 1961, the Indian Army established 43 strongholds across the actual line of control between the two sides. From June 1962, Indian Prime Minister Nehru issued a policy of advancement. The Indian army crossed the "McMahon Line" and entered the Dongdong region of Shannan, Tibet, claiming that China should not occupy Tibet. China claims that the Indian army fired on the Chinese border guards, killing and injuring dozens of Chinese soldiers. By the end of August, the Indian Army had established more than 100 military posts in China. Some posts are opposite the Chinese posts, some wedged between the Chinese posts, and some are inserted behind the Chinese border posts. On September 22, 1962, China's "People's Daily" published an editorial entitled "Tolerable, Unbearable", warning the Indian government of Nehru to withdraw troops immediately from the border, or China would use force.

24:02 The genocide of Bangladeshi intellectuals is known as 'Operation Searchlight' my mothers family of solicitors and businessmen were blacklisted and had to hide in undisclosed jungle for almost a year and returned with their homes gone and any neighbours thrown in mass graves in the village lakes. As for my dads side, my grandfather refused to flee to look after his dying mother who was too sick to hide. He buried her in the monsoon season in the middle of the night alone, and couldn't speak Bengali or he'd get caught, tortured and killed, or all of the above. He later became a prisoner in one of the death camps for 3 months before he took the biggest gamble of his life and managed to escape. My paternal grandmother took her kids and little siblings to a refugee camp in India. tldr: genocides are scary, and to all desi-immigrant families who are used to berating or making fun of your relatives especially in western countries, they are braver, smarter and wiser than you think, they survived the greatest crimes in human history 👀

The story of Tamil's struggle in Sri Lanka is much more deeper and has the same connotations as that of the Bengalis in east Pakistan. Tamils were subjected to the bullying of an Ethno-linguistic majoritarian Sinhalese Buddhist government in Sri Lanka. Denied of education, job opportunities, the Tamils were forced to protest for sovereignty. The peaceful protests were put down with military force and Tamils had to take up arms. India supported the armed movements and back stabbed the movements by intervening militarily in the pretext of peace mission and then siding with the Sinhalese government. This led to the unfortunate event of Ex Indian PM being assassinated in Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu. The civil war ended with the brutal destruction of Tamil areas and the genocide that resulted in hundreds of thousands of Tamil people killed in the last few days of the war in 2009. Even today, SL maintains huge military presence in the North and East of the country and Tamils are kept under martial law. North and east of Srilanka along with Tamil Nadu are the historic home lands of Tamil People.

A small correction on ''sentencing to rape'', this is not an actual legal process in Pakistan nor in Iran. This is an old tribal law, the Pakistani police arrested the people who tried to enact this as it's forbidden under the official law.

When it comes to internal integration, there is also the legacy of colonialism at work. Britain (like most colonial powers) had no interest in internal integration of their colonies, since its whole industrial economy was built around importing cheap raw materials from the colonies and exporting manufactured goods to them. Thus, what infrastructure development did take place in the colonies was mostly about connecting the inland to the coast for trade with the colonial overlord, rather than connecting different regions of the same colony to each other.

India btw hasn't violated the Indus water treaty that ensures Pakistan will get it's share of water supply downstream. India had utilized only about 30% of water out of what it is assigned by the Indus Water Treaty of 1960. So, the dams are just for exploitation of its full capacity. Also, the Indus originates in Tibetan plateau, not in India. So does the Brahmaputra. All now in control of China.

I like to think of Pakistan in a similar fashion to early Imperial Japan, with the ISI being akin to the Kwatung Army. In both senses they had a “rogue” government agency that did whatever it wanted regardless of the affects it would have on the country (let alone on the world stage), were either ignored or supported by the state, used proxies or outright terrorism to achieve their goals, and are often used as an excuse by the state that seeks to act like it’s not at fault. For imperial Japan the Kwatung army outright seized Manchuria, then started the Marco Polo Bridge incident, thus starting the 2nd Sino-Japanese War (WWII, eastern theater). For Pakistan the ISI provides equipment, material, money, training, and even troops for their operations. They take foreign aid and hand it to any terrorist groups near their borders that fit their goals. They aid said organizations in planning, organization, and training for attacks like the Mumbai attacks, the Taliban as a whole, the insurgencies in India, and political strife in Iran/Central Asia/Bangladesh.

I really appreciate the fact that this video tries to briefly cover the liberation war of Bangladesh. Bangladesh's history of facing constant exploitation and subjugation by foreign powers, is in my opinion, one of the most tragically overlooked histories in the world. The genocide that the Bengali faced surely is comparable, to the Holocaust and Nanking Massacre. Also, even though Bangladesh is still a poor nation and doesn't have power comparable to that of her neighbors, this video paints the wrong picture that Bangladesh is of no geopolitical importance, is SIGNIFICANTLY poorer than her neighbors. Bangladesh as of 2020, has surpassed India in terms of GDP per capita and her nominal GDP is bigger than that of Pakistan's. Things are changing and they are changing fast.

The fracturing of this sub continent is one of the most heartbreaking things in history. Frictionless borders for economic benefit in geo proximal regions that have distinct cultures and languages can lead to massive economic power even with varying levels of integration, case in point: United States of America and the EU. So much has happened since the partition, things look so bleak now between India and Pakistan, especially with China in the fore. At least, I hope, Bangladesh (who shares a lot in common with West Bengal, including having their national anthem written by and Indian Bengali) can align more strongly. From what I've learned from recent news, Bangladesh's economy is growing leaps and bounds, leading to upliftment of the poor. Hopefully this leads to lesser illegal immigration to India and an easier path for lawmakers in India to have a resistance-free alignment with Bangladesh in the coming decade. Bangladesh also has a strong emphasis on education, art, literature, science, technology because they draw more on their culture than on Islam for policy and philosophy. Honestly though, more power to Imran Khan, I think he's at least trying to make Pakistan a better place with a strong govt that puts the economy and environment over religious conservatism. I hope things improve there and there can be greater partnership with India in the future, we have a lot more in common than we do differences.

10:22 The flag was co-designed by Bhikaji Cama and Veer Savarkar. The design of the "Flag of Indian Independence" was raised by Bhikhaiji Cama on 22 August 1907, at the International Socialist Conference in Stuttgart, Germany. Based on the Calcutta Flag, the green, yellow and red fields represent Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism respectively. The crescent moon and the sun again represent Islam and Hinduism, respectively. The eight lotuses in the upper register represent the eight provinces of British India. The words in the middle are in Devanagri script and read Vande Mataram "[We] Bow to thee Mother [India]", the slogan of the Indian National Congress. The design was adopted in 1914 as the emblem of the Berlin Committee (later known as the Indian Independence Committee). The original "Flag of Indian Independence" raised by Cama in Stuttgart is now on display at the Maratha and Kesari Library in Pune.

This is a very good video explaining a lot of things in a pretty neutral way. So, I would like to add more to it, and also correct some things. *1. "Indus river water being a threat to Pakistan"* India realized this might be a issue that is making Pakistan nervous, and did one of the most one-sided deals ever with Pakistan to solve this issue in 1960 called Indus Waters Treaty. This treaty gave 80% of the water of Indus system garunteed to Pakistan, meaning India can maximum use only 20% of water. And to ensure it is monitored properly, World Bank stood as the neutral third party garunteeing it works. This was a very very unpopular deal among Indian Public. As, it felt almost as if Indian government is sold out, and is unnecessarily making a very bad deal. Anyways, this deal has stood the test of time. Even during the wars with Pakistan, there were regular meetings of the water treaty officials from both sides to ensure and check it. Even after this, Pakistan was opposing any construction of infrastructure on Indian side of the river for its 20% use, thus to not annoy Pakistan, India did not build many dams and hydro electric projects. India's usage of water was way below at around 3%. Now, the change is that, India finally decided to make use of its share of the water and thus building dams and hydro projects to utilize the excess water. *2. "Bangladesh India relation"* It was India who helped Bangladesh gain independence and get back on its feet. Indian armed forces were the ones who fought against pakistan army, and also it was India which went on a campaignn around the world to popularize Bangladeshi Genocide by Pakistan. After the war was over, the biggest problem Bangladesh faced was that nearly all of its capable educated people were killed by Pakistan Army as they left. This was their last operation. They knew they had lost the war, so they wanted to cripple the new nation. So, a final effort was made to kill as many intellectuals as possible, to eliminate the future leaders of the new nation of Bangladesh. So, after independence, It was Indian administrative service that went to Bangladesh and re-established the entire country's administrative systems. Now, the reason India has build the largest border in the world is NOT due to distrust, but to reduce problems. The only problem that really existed between both countries is the 30million+ illegal immigrants that came to India due to poor conditions in Bangladesh. This caused lot of conflict between local Indians who found it annoying to have so many foreigners of different culture migrating to their place, taking over their jobs at one fourth the price, and causing criminal problems like looting. This caused huge hatred for Bangladesh to form in Indian public. But, the relationships between both goverments were actually friendly and cordial! The border helped drastically reduce the illegal migration. Another thing to consider is that, India-Bangladesh border was the WORST border in the world till 2015. Just search on youtube itself about this border and you will know why. That problem was solved in 2015 in a historic agreement that actually gave thousands of acres of Indian land to Bangladesh! If India wanted, it could have easily force solved this issue in 1971 itself and bangladesh would not even have cared, but it didn't. *3. Bangladesh is poor* And, stop calling bangladesh as a poor country anymore. They are now the fastest growing country in the world, outpacing India itself! They overtook Pakistan few decades ago, despite having to start from scratch and not having any natural resouces. They even have to import rocks for construction as they don't have it in their country!! So, my thinking is that you read outdated books. The reason for the bangladesh's success is One - Highly hardworking people. Everyone I mett from there wass super hard working, even the illigal migrants who did 3x more work at same time as others. Two - Not having to spend on a military. Due to friendly relation with India, they could focus on building the country, rather than military toys. Three - Great support from India to develop Bangladesh industries, particularly textile industry. Bangladesh is today the textile capital of the world. This is an industry that requires a large amount of human workers, and thus can employ millions. However, Bangladesh do not have the resources to make the raw materials required for making textiles, including cotton and colouring material. Importing it from foreign countries would be so expensive that it would render the entire industry unviable. India saw this as an opportunity to help Bangladesh grow economically and also solve the migrant crisis. India provided these raw materials at subsidized costs and helped Bangladesh in establishing and growing its textile industry even at the cost of undermining India's own textile industry as this would mean Bangladeshi textile will be cheaper than Indian ones due to low labour charges there. This even caused many Indian textile companies to shift their production to bangladesh. And funnily, over 40% of Pakistan's textile industry got shifted to Bangladesh as admitted by their minister himself. Last year Bangladesh crossed India's GDP per capita! And is about 2 times that of Pakistan's.

This was a very well put together video, didn't expect it to be this detailed. Though I didn't agree with some info presented, it was still mostly accurate.

The video would've been perfect if they had mentioned the partition of Bengal by the British Raj. Then the Pakistan and Bangladesh situation would be easier to understand for people who didn't know about it.

What really concerns me is, 50 years from now, the tensions between India and Pakistans and Bangladesh are going to be tested to levels unlike any before. Bangladesh as a country is very low and will be hit very hard by sea level rise. Millions of refugees fleeing into India over decades of rising tides makes me deeply concerned.

You’ve successfully explained a sub-continent’s geo-political scenario and ramifications in 50 minutes, better than a lifetime of conventional news coverage. Whether that’s a fault in myself for not independently seeking out the knowledge earlier or an utterly Western-centric system of news coverage I don’t know. Probably both.

Nah he left out many things as expected. This is why you should always research for yourself.

Read up on B.R. Ambedkar to understand Indian subcontinent and it's history from a total different angle. R.C Majumder book on Indian history are also a starting point. And India after Independence.

Mahatma Gandhi is quoted saying the Indian state should undoubtedly be secular. The fact that it wasn't explicitly in the constitution is mostly an Indian alt-right talking point

And you know you can just look up interviews, memoirs etc of Indian founders and you'll see that it was in their vision all along. Even non Gandhian freedom fighters like Bose and Bhagat Singh believed that India should be a secular nation and a welfare state

Indian constitution has always been secular. Read article 25 - 28.

When Kraut moved on from mainstream political commentary to these style of historical videos he only improved himself and his videos But sadly his previous failures have been documented and archived, I'm not telling you this to bring you or him down I'm just telling you so you are aware
