Best Answer

India was promised independence by the British government after the war, and so it became non-British India at this point.

The division was primarily along religious boundaries, with the Muslim area becoming Pakistan, and the Hindu and Sikh areas remaining India. There was a lot of violence at the division, and many people crossed the new borders to stay with their religion.
