Chandigarh: In 1947, the British colonial rulers drew a line of partition, dividing the Indian subcontinent into two countries Pakistan and India. What followed was one of the largest – and, perhaps, most violent – migrations in human history.
Seventy years on, the two countries remain bitter foes but now they have nuclear arms, notes AlJazeera.
AlJazeera has published a graphical article explaining the arms race between these two ‘neighbours’. The graphics are being reproduced as follows for the information of readers of the Sikh Siyasat News (SSN).
