Main Reason for the Partition of Bengal
Dividing the Indian nationalists on the grounds of communal lines was the main reason for the partition of Bengal. The British administration relied on disharmony among the Muslims of Eastern Bengal and the Hindus of Western Bengal to further their base in India.
However, the announcement of the partition of Bengal created an uproar among the Indian nationalists, who were outraged by the move. The Indian National Congress opposed the move, and the locals boycotted the British in protest.
