March 12, 2016 Sea Day

The afternoon included a lecture by Bill Crews on The Religious Divide in India after their independence in 1947 and the partition to form Pakistan. Pakistan was split off from India and was divided along religion lines into multiple states. This breakup caused millions of people to move from their homes to a state that had similar beliefs to their own. During this time there were religious wars that broke out and many people lost their lives. Later eastern Pakistan was split again into what we know today as Bangladesh. It is a sad history, but not unlike some of the things happening in the world today.
