There could not be any other befitting analogy! (See below).
WHAT HAPPENED AT THE SO-CALLED PARTITION OF INDIA IN 1947?
Kindly allow me to inject my simple view.
"Lady Hindusthan" was "Mother India" or "Bharat Maata" for us.
Prior to the departure of the British from India she was RAPED & MUTILATED, and left for dead.
Jinnah was the rapist.
Nehru was the pimp.
Mountbatten kept the watch while holding the lady down.
Gandhi fainted on the sight of horror and was speechless. He was a child, very feeble, who strongly related to the mother.
PS: They were the only fu**ing FOUR involved. People of India, considered dumb cattle, were NOT consulted. There was NO referendum. Nor was there any condition attached to the unconditional surrender of India to the enemy! It was all over in ONE day! The day was announced as "Independence Day" by Nehru who sent a top secret message to Jinnah to invade Kashmir. Decades later I realised the reason. As a barrister Nehru was unrivalled.
