Dividing up India might be a panacea for problems in South Asia. These are the sentiments thinking people from different cultures and religious orientations have been echoing in the wake of the recent riots in various parts of India.
The past 72 years of Indian history reveal that it is increasingly becoming difficult for people from different religious orientations in the country to co-exist peacefully. The RSS and BJP supporters do not want to give the right to other people to live in their country. they want them either to change their religion and accept Hindusim or leave the country.
The caste system in Hinduism is another problem that is the root cause of many of the conflicts among various communities in the country. There have been movements to curb the system. However, there does not seem to be a solution to the problem in sight.
To avoid these ensuing problems and rifts between various religious communities in India it is imperative that the country should be divided at least into two parts. On the basis of a nationwide referendum, people should be able to decide which country they would like to join. In that case, they can either migrate to the land area of their chosen country or remain in the regions they have been living if it happens to be the country of their choice.
