Fisking Roger Bolton

Funny old statement from Roger Bolton on this week's Feedback:
But first a political earthquake with devastating consequences: On August 15th 1947 British rule on the Indian sub-continent came to an end and it was partitioned into two countries: India, predominantly Hindu and Sikh, and Muslim Pakistan. 
Well, India is not "predominantly Hindu and Sikh". It's predominantly Hindu, yes, but Sikhs have always been a much smaller minority than Indian Muslims. The latest census shows that India is 80% Hindu, 13.4% Muslim and just 1.9% Sikh.

A small point, but there you go!
