Scotland said "NO!" to separation in a referendum.
If there were a referendum in 1947, India would never have been partitioned.
Gandhi and Nehru must be held responsible for Not insisting on a referendum before breaking up a Country.
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE. THE SCOTS ARE HUMANS BUT THE INDIANS WERE (and still are!) LIKE THE CATTLE.
SCOTS WERE NEVER ENSLAVED BY THE MUSLIMS WHILE INDIA REMAINED SLAVE OF MUSLIMS FOR EIGHT HUNDRED YEARS AND OF THE EUROPEANS FOR ANOTHER TWO HUNDRED YEARS.
SLAVERY MAKES "ANIMALS" OUT OF FREE MEN. That is why the proud Afghans did not let the Russians or the Americans settle down in their country! India on the other hand accepted ITALIAN BORN Sonia Maino as "Rashtramata" (MOTHER OF NATION) from Day 1.
LASTLY, SCOTLAND IS IN EUROPE WHILE INDIA IS IN ASIA. WHILE THE WHOLE OF EUROPE IS EDUCATED, ADVANCED AND DEVELOPED, IN THE WHOLE OF ASIA THERE ARE VERY FEW DEVELOPED AND EDUCATED COUNTRIES LIKE SOUTH KOREA, JAPAN AND SINGAPORE. WILL ANYONE THERE ACCEPT UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER AND PARTITION OF THEIR COUNTRY LIKE OUR "NEHRU AND GANDHI"?
The answer is "NO".
