‘The Sickle and the Crescent: Communists, Muslim League and India’s Partition’ makes an in-depth study of the role played by the communists in India during India’s Partition in 1947. While Indian National Congress and Muslim League are primarily blamed for vivisection of the country, the communists support to the Muslim League between 1942 and 1947 only accelerated the birth of the two nations: India and Pakistan.
