A wave of fear has spread among people. Liaquat Ali Khan, then Prime Minister of Pakistan, decided to solve the problem. He made a statement in which he said there was a need for an immediate solution and also suggested that his Indian counterpart meet to discuss the problem. The two prime ministers met in Delhi on April 2, 1950. They signed an agreement on the protection of minority rights. This pact was called the Liaquat-Nehru Pact. Some of the goals of the pact were to reduce the fear of religious minorities, to put an end to municipal unrest and to create an atmosphere of peace. Immediate concern was the exodus of Hindus from East Pakistan (later than Bangladesh aspiring to independence) and Muslims from West Bengal. India and Pakistan had already weighed in on their relations with Pakistan`s interference in Jammu and Kashmir. Economic relations between India and Pakistan had been severed until December 1949. The exodus of Hindu, Sikh, Jain and Buddhist minorities to Pakistan and Muslims in India has caused a serious refugee crisis. And while Shah insists that this EU government has broken with Nehru when it comes to ignoring Bangladeshi refugees, ironically, there could be more points of convergence than disagreements.
The trials cited in the Citizenship Amendment Bill are so complicated that the intelligence office itself has found that only a few tens of thousands of them will benefit. And most of them will actually be Hindu migrants from Pakistan, not Bangladesh. In his response, Swaran Singh stated that the 1950 Nehru-Liaquat Pact was a permanent agreement between India and Pakistan. It obliges each country to ensure that its minorities enjoy full equality of citizenship with others and receive the same treatment as other nationals of their country. Relations between India and Pakistan have been extremely hostile in previous phases of the birth of the two nations, and they themselves have been at the root of this state of undesirable circumstances. From day one, both nations recognized that salvation had lied to them by accepting themselves as they exist, but the necessary rationality was hijacked by emotionally charged and narrow-minded warmongers. However, the leaders of both countries understood that circumstances required at least some peaceful and friendly gestures to get people to accept the truth of division, but not to appreciate them in the same way for all. For example, on 2 April 1950, Pakistani Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan and Indian Prime Minister Jawarla Nehru met in Delhi and discussed at length the problems of minority communities.
The visit lasted 6 days. On 8 April, the two heads of state and government signed a pact to solve the problem, known as the Liaquat-Nehru Pact. The pact is in fact “a bill of rights for minority communities” in both countries. The pact is also called the Delhi Pact. The agreement was signed in the context of large-scale migration of members of minority communities between the two countries following attacks by majority communities on their respective territories. The agreement was signed between the two heads of state during the Pakistani Prime Minister`s visit to India this year. While India has kept the pact in its content and spirit, Pakistan has not done so.
