What was the reasons India and Pakistan separated?

Asia
Asia was the birthplace of the world's major religions Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism. More people live in Asia than on any other continent. The country of China alone has more than 1 billion people. It is the world's most heavily populated country.

Asia is huge not only in population but also in physical size. Asia is the largest continent, with an area of more than 17 million square miles (44,026,600 sq km). Because Asia is so large, geographers usually divide it into several regions.

Part of the huge country of Russia forms the entire region of northern Asia. The present-day countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India form a large part of the region known as southern Asia. Cultures in southern Asia trace their heritage back thousands of years, but their countries are fairly new. India and Pakistan became independent countries in 1947. When colonial India gained its independence from Britain, it split in two. The part where most Hindus lived became India. The part where most Muslims lived became Pakistan.

The towering Himalayas separate the regions of southern and central Asia.
A large part of China, Kazakhstan (ka»zak»STAN), Kyrgyzstan (kir»gih»STAN), Turkmenistan (terk»meh»nuh»STAN), and Uzbekistan (uhz«beh»kih»STAN) make up the region of central Asia.

Bordering central and southern Asia to the west is southwestern Asia. This area is also known as the Middle East. The ancient civilizations of the Fertile Crescent began in this region. Today all the countries in south western Asia are Muslim countries, except for Israel, which is a Jewish state.

Far to the east of central Asia lies eastern Asia. It includes part of China, North Korea, South Korea, and Japan. All of these countries border the Pacific Ocean. China is the
"ft largest country in the world that remains communist.

To the south of China is southeastern Asia. This region includes the island
countries of the Philippines and Indonesia and the mainland countries of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand.
