Our attitude towards the British colonizers is surprisingly passive. I know that’s not the message of this post and it is a bit of a tangent but I wonder why our history books in school were always more critical of India and the Hindus than of the British.

Because if desired the British could have just brushed off the Indian Muslim League's demands for a separate homeland and completely departed from an unpartitioned and united subcontinent in which we the Muslims would be a minority. Plus the relatively recent period of tensions and hatred between these new states of Pak and India override our memory of the damage that the colonial period inflicted.

But what about the Kashmir problem. That princely state nonsense is ridiculous, they should have divided Kashmir between India and Pakistan just like they divided the Punjab and Bengal.

Divide and rule bhaijaan

Probably because the Quaid was closer than Gandhi was with Britain

Yes, that's because of our priorities really. The Muslim League in general was more communicative with the British and partition's violence led us to focus on India as our "true" enemy rather than the ones that colonized us in the first place

Where did you find this? Super cool to get one considering all I've read about them in Lahore are accounts

Literally everyone you see in this photo is probably dead by now. Sad. Even the children here in this photo are most probably dead.

I see all of them trying to block the sun with different angles of their hats, but none of them is succeeding

Yes....of course! What kind of question is that?? Maybe not a punishment as barbaric as beheading but at least decades of imprisonment and atonement for their crimes.
