Indian Independence Act 1947
A fter sensing the huge resistance to British rule in India, which undoubtedly emerged from the nonviolent mass movement for independence led by Mahatma Gandhi, the British took a political decision after World War II to leave India and began the decolonisation process. If it had done so, there would have been an anarchy. The British decided to transfer power by legal method, to avoid any discontinuity or hiatus even in the eyes of International law. However, the Indian Independence Act of ; though it constitutes a title to the Constitution of India being a source of power, is the least known even among students of Constitutional law.

The Congress Party was successful in gathering most of the general electorate seats, but it could no longer effectively insist that it spoke for the entire population of British India.

Cripps was responsible primarily for drafting the ingenious Cabinet Mission Plan, which proposed a three-tier federation for India, integrated by a minimal central-union government in Delhi , which would be limited to handling foreign affairs, communications, defense, and only those finances required to care for such unionwide matters. The subcontinent was to be divided into three major groups of provinces: Group A, to include the Hindu-majority provinces of the Bombay Presidency, Madras, the United Provinces, Bihar, Orissa, and the Central Provinces virtually all of what became independent India a year later ; Group B, to contain the Muslim-majority provinces of the Punjab, Sind, the North-West Frontier, and Balochistan the areas out of which the western part of Pakistan was created ; and Group C, to include the Muslim-majority Bengal a portion of which became the eastern part of Pakistan and in the country of Bangladesh and the Hindu-majority Assam. The group governments were to be virtually autonomous in everything but matters reserved to the union centre, and within each group the princely states were to be integrated into their neighbouring provinces. Local provincial governments were to have the choice of opting out of the group in which they found themselves should a majority of their populace vote to do so.

On this, the 65th Anniversary of the birth of Pakistan, it would not be out of place to pay some attention to the means by which it all came about. That pithy instrument by which the path of two nations diverged. The document which set in motion the wheels to transport two societies apart. The Indian Independence Act, The Act is one of the most important Constitutional documents in the history of Pakistan. Yet politically, socially, it is a liability.

I desire to make an important statement on Indian policy. A similar statement is being made at the same time in another place, and by the Viceroy in New Delhi. The statement, in the form of a White Paper, will be available this afternoon. I am glad to inform the House that the plan contained in the announcement which I am about to make, including the offer of Dominion status to one or two successor authorities, has been favourably received by all three parties represented at the Conferences held by the Viceroy with the Indian leaders during the past two days.

He was asked to become the Governor-General of India after independence, which he accepted for a limited transitional period…. This programme had originally included a ceremonial lowering of the Union Jack: but when I discussed this with Nehru he entirely agreed that this was a day they wanted everybody to be happy, and if the lowering of the Union Jack in any way offended British susceptibilities, he would certainly see that it did not take place, the more so as the Union Jack would still be flown on a dozen days a year in the Dominion. India continues to be so till date. Notes, and emphases are added by us. They show what a sham the independence was.

От него зависела жизнь Сьюзан, а также будущее Цифровой крепости. Стратмор также понимал, что первым делом нужно разрядить ситуацию. Выдержав паузу, он как бы нехотя вздохнул: - Хорошо, Грег.
