The Partition of India would go down in history as a violent separation marred with bloodshed and inexplicable violence; the chance to rewrite history in this committee should not be taken lightly.
The Partition of India was the division of British India in 1947 into two independent states, Pakistan and India. Throughout it’s coming to fruition, the partition displaced ten to twelve million people due to religious reasons, and brought about an overwhelming refugee crisis, and massive waves of ethnic violence. As BosMUN’s only JCC, both sides of this conflict will be represented in committees throughout the weekend, working together in an attempt to soothe the tensions of one of the violent partitions in history. Delegates in the Pakistan committee will attempt to resolve the topics of Accession of Conflicted Regions, and also address the Social and Economic Future of Pakistan.
In the former topic, issues such as the fighting for Kashmir and Hyderabad will need to be at the forefront of discussion, as well historical events like Operation Polo, the signing of the Instrument of Accession, and the separation of East Pakistan from Pakistan in 1971, which led to the country that is now known as Bangladesh. For the latter topic, the formation of ISIS, the matter of Pakistani national security, and the steps that the government must take to attempt to move forward and rise in the world will all be crucial topics of debate.
