The Subcontinent

An innocent question:
Since partitions in the Subcontinent at 1947
India became the most populous (and corrupt) democracy
Pakistan observed 8 military coups (including unsuccessful ones)
Bangladesh keeps sliding..
What was wrong..?

The famous Jihadist; Abul Ala Maududi had great influence on the Muslims of the Subcontinent, and beyond up to Al-Banna and Qutb of Egypt..

Certainly Jinnah was influenced too, particularly in the notion that Muslims should not be ruled by non-Muslim..

I guess more lights and insights should be shaded on him, and his unspoken contribution to the Partition..

This is a key for both past and present dilemmas..
