The peoples of India will be free only when we establish our rule in place of the rule of big capitalists established in 1947
Statement of the Central Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, 29 July, 2017
On 15th August, 1947, India was formally declared to be independent from British colonial rule. British India was divided into two parts on the basis of religion, to create the independent States of India and Pakistan. East Pakistan, which was geographically separated from the rest of Pakistan, broke away in 1971 to become another independent State of Bangladesh.
Today, 70 years later, the vast majority of people living in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are deprived of freedom in almost all aspects of life.
