Yes, Congress mixed religion with politics. Gandhi started with Khilafat movement (and it boom-ranged). After independence, Congress became actively anti-Hindu with Nehru. Congress used religious riots (Muzaffarpur, Punjab) to retain its power. That strengthened RSS. With 80% Hindu population, an anti-Hindu party survived as long as it could. Muslims are doing fine in India. Of course, if they want dominance beyond their numbers, it is not available now.after a century of hindu politics, partition was virtually inevitable whether congress wanted or didn't want, congress did start its politics as hindu nationalist, it could have remained non sectarian and neutral and it could have bode well for india.
as for pakistan rejoining india, india needs to take care of its own muslim minority who have been subjected to RSS pundit yogi, sadhu govt, I dont think there is any chance of any rejoining.
