Our wily neighbour Pakistan came into existence on August 14, 1947 when the Political Leadership of united India, at that point of time, was constrained to accept partition of the country in lieu of granting freedom. But despite getting separate Homeland they were never contented and instead persisted with hostile and inimical approach towards our country. Soon after their birth they did not concentrate on stabilisation and development but launched unprovoked armed assault on Jammu & Kashmir, which was yet to take final call on accession with India and usurped major chunk of our territory.
