  1. UPDATE: An border crossing known as the Kartarpur Corridor has opened between India and Pakistan, linking two of the holiest sites in Sikhism for the first time in more than 70 years. The 4.7 kilometres corridor connects the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan to the border with India.

  2. It's feels so surreal to watch a FIFA World Cup-like match between the borders of two countries, except there's no soccer ball, just pure battle of nationalistic pride between two countries.

  3. It's pointless to be united we are different our cultures our religions our practices and our narratives but we can be good friends but unfortunately the ruling party in India right now won't let that happen. Now a small group of people would think I am an extremist and i think about the division is right and its actually right because majority of the population in both countries hate each other and even within India there are differences between Hindus and Muslims and most of the time Hindus have ruled over India so it's a fact and we have to accept it that we are not one but two nations so we should establish friendly relations between both countries but it's pointless to talk about the thing that we can be united

  4. The reason of Division is Islam. They divided our Bharat(India). Mahatma Gandhi choosed a secular India where all religious peoples would live it indicates that our India must not divided but those peoples wanted to made a Muslim nation so all this happened. This is the truth.

  5. From 10:30 our sikh brothers still respect that muslim mosque till date, but muslims in pakistan are destroying our temples everytime they see it…. This is the difference between India and pakistan…
    No hate for normal pakistani citizens, but please stop religious extremism…

  6. @Vox, compliments and thanks for this wonderful video!

    At times I wonder, had the British colonial power not partitioned India at the time of independence, Pakistan, India and Bangla Desh would all be together now, extending from Myanmar in the East to Afghanistan in the West, with sea ports all around the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean, as well as the land trade routes to East Asia, West Asia and Central Asia.

    There would have been no wars, or border tensions, or the need to have huge defence budgets to modernise the defence forces, instead of spending the money on education and healthcare.

    I have no doubt in my mind that, undivided India would've been a superpower today, at par with the US and China!

    Sadly, the political ambitions of Mr. JawaharLal Nehru who wanted Mr. Jinnah out of the way as a contender for the post of the first Prime Minister of India, coupled with the hasty and unplanned departure of the British from India in 1947, that left the future generations of the Indian subcontinent with a legacy, where India and Pakistan are divided by religion.

    Ironically, India has the 3rd largest number of Muslims in the world, living peacefully and coexisting with the Hindus, in present day India.

    There will never be a political will from either India and Pakistan to unify the two nations, like East and West Germany did a few decades ago by demolishing the symbolic Berlin Wall.

    The British cannot be forgiven for the partition of India – ever.

  7. Jinnah offered the Sikhs various incentives in return for agreeing to a united Punjab joining Pakistan. The Sikhs disagreed, not without consequences continuing up until this day. It was a bad decision to partition Punjab. It weakened Pakistan considerably also.

  8. 1 thing you forgot to mention the 3 countries have in common – Overpopulation!
    🇮🇳India is the 2nd, 🇵🇰Pakistan is the 5th & 🇧🇩Bangladesh is the 8th Most-Populous country in the World 😅😂
