Pakistan needs to be balkanized and de-nuked.

Maybe in 20 years, the independent countries of former Pakistan (plus maybe Bangladesh and a few other neighbors) can enter into an economic union with India.

Maybe 20 years after that, it becomes EU-style union.

Maybe 20 years after that, it's a reunified India.



That is the ideal situation, to me.

It's all very well to sit in the west and comfortably opine on where the borders should and shouldn't based on a cursory understanding of different ethnicities in Pakistan (or elsewhere) but at the end of the day partition is a lazy and fraudulent solution for geopolitical issues. A divided Pakistan would not solve any of the problems the current nation has, and I wouldn't be surprised if the successor states would be even more failed.

China and Russia will watch this very carefully. They canít afford a major war in their backyard.
India is in Russia's backyard??

It would affect them, though, shared border or not. Pakistan has long been a China's ally, while Russia maintains a "special relationship" with India, going back all the way to the Soviet era.

Isn't the Chinese alliance relatively recent given that Pakistan was on the US side in the Cold War?
