The Quiz: The end of British rule over India also created what other new nation?
The end of British India in 1947 resulted in the creation of two new nations, Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan. Pakistan celebrates its independence each year on 14 August, one day before India. Pakistan remained part of the Commonwealth until 1956 when it drafted its constitution and declared itself an Islamic Republic. In 1971, the province of East Pakistan seceded and became the nation of Bangladesh.
The correct answer to this quiz is Pakistan.
