Abstract:     
The paper demolishes the lingering viewpoint that partition of Indian subcontinent was caused by religious animosity between the Muslims and the Hindus, and substantiates that unequal exchange of material and mental amenities among the people belonging to sensitive social groups leads to the formation and fragmentation of nation-states along the march of the process-structure - process syndrome in extant society.
