What I said was that it was born at that time, it became adult only in 1940s and was certainly helped by British, this is still going on. Entire media of west has engaged in most shameless lies about events of post 1947, whether we like it or not but only an unrealist westerner would want a unified India and we all know the forces which need patronage to sabotage Indian Republic.British at last wanted India to remain united all though some ultra-right wing officials wanted partition, how ever the monster they were feeding since decades by Divide and Rule Policy and Reservation to weaken India's freedom movement, it became so powerful that they could not control it at last.

Ajanbahu is basically correct that Pakistan was created in 712 CE or perhaps correct term is it's basis, later this basis expanded because of rigidity in Indian society and Hindu kings's unrealistic attitude.
