Pakistan

Learning some cool history from Dr. Who: India and Pakistan used to be the same country, and then got forcibly split in two by the British in the 40's. Wikipedia says some Muslim dude advocated the split, intending Pakistan for Muslims. And now I'm confused about why they don't get along with each other. Is it just the Hindu/Muslim thing? Or is the split the reason?

EDIT: Okay, so it seems there was a lot of violence during that time. Lots of people died. They seem to be implying that people enforcing the split were responsible. That could explain things.
