Ambedkar's 'Thoughts on Pakistan' was taken up immediately after the passing of the Lahore Resolution on Pakistan. Perhaps Ambedkar's work is the earliest in the line of writings on Partition. It was actually a treatise submitted as a report to the Independent Labour Party which was subsequently published in the form of a book. The idea of Pakistan is bound to have diverse opinions in the Indian milieu. The question is undoubtedly controversial. This is definitely an arena of controversy based purely on sentiments. In this given situation anyone intending to comprehend it finds more stupefaction and less understanding of the subject. It is here that the writing of Ambedkar brings in a ray of hope in our understanding of the problem of Partition of India. The article tries to reflect the ideas as expressed by Ambedkar on the theme, in his work 'Thoughts on Pakistan' which eventually enables us to understand the issue without any prejudice over the subject of study.
