The Indian political party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has released a 7-second video commemorating the partition of the subcontinent.
In the said video, BJP targeted the Congress party and criticized Jawaharlal Nehru and held him responsible for the partition of India.
The BJP says that Jawaharlal Nehru bowed down to the demands of the Muslim League led by Muhammad Ali Jinnah, which cost the people of India.

A video released by the BJP blamed Jawaharlal Nehru as well as various Indian communists for the partition and claimed that their leaders supported the Muslim League and justified the demand for a separate Muslim country. stated.
