British India was partitioned along religious lines into two states: the Muslim-majority Dominion of Pakistan (comprising what is now the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the People's Republic of Bangladesh) and the Hindu-majority Union of India (later the Republic of India). This led to mass rioting amongst Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs. About twelve million refugees moved between the newly founded nations.
